At Cruise San Diego, we are passionate about our waters and the history and wildlife that surround us. Part of that history starts with the OHANA, our beautiful vessel that serves as the platform for all of our bay cruises. This aluminum passenger ferry was built by the Chaffee Machine Company of San Diego for the Wrigley Family, yes the makers of the famous chewing gum. The vessel was designed to provide year-round service for their family and friends between Los Angeles and Catalina Island (which they also owned). After their passing, the vessel and Catalina Island were deeded to the State of California. The Cabrillo, as she was known back then, was then purchased by a private investor to run whale watching trips out of Long Beach, CA before Cruise San Diego found her and decided to bring her back home. Cruise San Diego is a locally owned and operated company whose mission is to share the beauty and history of our waters with our customers.
Cruise San Diego reviews
We saw some beautiful sites while on this cruise. The captain and crew were very polite and helpful. We went in late August and it got chilly so I would imagine it would be the same in other months... more »
We thoroughly enjoyed the sunset whale watching cruise. The crew members were very friendly and informative. more »
Had such a relaxing & fun experience with Cruise San Diego. The staff we're all very knowledgeable and kind. The boats are great & recently renovated. Would definitely suggest dressing very warm as it gets chilly & windy in the evening. We saw tons of dolphins which was incredible!
My husband and I had a wonderful time on the Dolphin & Whale Watching Sunset Cruise. The crew is what made our experience extra special. They were very knowledgeable, friendly and seemed genuinely invested in showing everyone a great time. The bar was reasonably priced and had a good variety of options. This was one of our favorite experience in San Diego so far! I highly recommend them.
