Private Charters

The beauty of a private boat charter is that not only is the tour destination your choice, but so is the rest of the package. If you’d like to have snacks, lunch or even drinks included, we can help you create the best boat charter package to suit your plan and budget.

Corporate Events

Get out of the boring meeting halls and conference rooms and out on the water! Our indoor and outdoor seating, on-board bar, covered upper deck and restrooms are sure to make it fun and inviting for all. And we have catering and entertainment options that will make your event a success!


Experience the privacy and exclusivity of having your own private boat party for your wedding with no interruptions or distractions while enjoy the breathtaking views of the ocean or river and bask in the warm sun as you explore the open water.

Whale Watching

This whale watching tour that never goes out of season! Our on-staff naturalists have endless wildlife facts to share with passengers of all ages. We share a love for educating adults and children about the beautiful marine ecosystem San Diego has to offer.

Burial at Sea

Our respectful, reflective scattering of ashes into the ocean gives families a safe space for healing and reflection. A love for the ocean and being left to rest in a beautiful place to be remembered is one of the reasons why people choose burials at sea.

We cruised San Diego Bay for two hours with Cruise San Diego. We chartered the boat for the final night of our family reunion. Great communication from them throughout the process. I know they also do whale watching cruises as well as other cruises. I recommend them for the organization, the incredibly convivial crew, and the wonderful experience.

It was a very pleasant cruise! We haven't spent much time in Mission Bay, so it was nice to see and learn about the area. Great drinks from the bar, great music, and the Captain and crew were absolutely fantastic. We even got to watch the Sea World fireworks, which was an added bonus. Would definitely do this cruise again or try one of their other cruises.

The staff was friendly. Get there early because a line develops and the seating is open seating, first come, first sit. We had a lovely time. We saw some seals and pelicans and the boat captain shared some knowledge about the wildlife. There's a bar and great music...a little something for everyone. We had fun and would do it again!

We took this cruise during our trip to San Diego for our one year anniversary, and it was perfect! The staff was amazing, knowledgeable and calming. They have a bar on board and provided blankets after it gets cool. The timing of everything on the cruise was perfect and saw a beautiful of the sunset in the bay. Great for anyone who wants a nice, relaxing time.

My husband and I went on a Friday night sunset cruise and we really enjoyed it! The crew was so fun and answered questions about wildlife and helped make us feel extremely comfortable offering blankets and anything else we might need. The crew was awesome. I can’t say enough wonderful things about our trip! We had a wonderful time.
