Fun Facts About The Ohana!

Built locally by Chaffe Machine Company here in San Diego, the Ohana, formerly named Cabrillo, belonged to the Wriggly family. That is right, the family who gave us Big Red, Spearmint, and Juicy Fruit chewing gum! The family cruised on the Ohana back and forth from Los Angeles to Catalina Island.

In 2018, Cruise San Diego brought the Ohana back home and gave her a new life, cruising Mission Bay, offering the public amazing experiences!
