Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, parking is free on Quivira Road. You’ll want to park as close to the front of the Hyatt as possible. We are located around the left hand side of the building.

When does your schedule come out?

Our schedule is available one month in advance.

What time should I arrive to the boat?

We require guests to check in 30 minutes prior to departure to ensure the boat is able to depart on time. Please note that our departure times are very prompt and leave as scheduled. If you arrive 5 minutes late, you will most likely miss your cruise.

Unfortunately, we do not allow our guests to bring alcohol on board. However, our galley has a full bar with drinks available for purchase!

Unfortunately, we do not have the facilities for your pet to come with us. However, all service animals are welcome aboard. They must have their ADA paperwork and/or tag visible.

Does your crew accept gratuities?

If you feel the service warranted a gratuity then we surely appreciate it.

What should I wear?

Dress Code: Casual

Weather: Please plan accordingly. San Diego can cool off! Please bring jacket with you, especially on the Sunset and Evening Cruises. It tends to be a bit cooler out on the Bay, especially after the sun goes down. We have indoor seating to accommodate for cooler nights. However, we advise a jacket as an extra layer in case you need it.

Should I book my trip in advance?

We strongly recommend booking your trip in advance as they do fill up closer to the day of departure.

Is there a minimum age for your trips?

All ages are welcome.

Is there food on board/Can I bring food on board?

We have light snacks available for purchase; however, we do not have the proper facilities to accommodate bringing food on board. We recommend reserving a table at the Red Marlin restaurant just down the walkway from our vessel. They are great option for appetizers, dinner or drinks either before or after your cruise. You may reach the Red Marlin at (619) 221-4868.

Do I need to bring anything?

If you purchased your tickets through a site other than our own, please be sure to bring your voucher with you. We accept vouchers whether they are printed out or on your smart phone.

Yes! If you need to make any adjustments to your current reservation, please call our reservation line at 619.288.8554.

  • Please note that there is a price difference between the 3pm and evening cruises. The difference will be refunded or owed, depending on the particular adjustment.
Am I able to rent out the entire boat for a private event or party?

Yes! Whether your event is for a birthday, graduation, business gathering, burial at sea, or simply just because, we make sure it nothing short of perfect. Please call our reservation line at 619.288.8554 or you may email us at [email protected] for more information.

When are there fireworks?

The fireworks only run during the summer months from May – September. Please check Seaworld’s website for the updated schedule.

We only cancel cruises when we have a lack of reservations or in a case of bad weather. If a cruise is canceled, you will be notified prior to your departure time by phone.

Yes. Sealions, seabirds and possibly even in shore bottlenose dolphins!
