It might be against the law to swim in any of San Diego's manmade lakes, but there's nothing wrong with boarding a boat and staying dry while you see it all. Join a local guide and cruise over 13 miles around the Bay. See Coronado Island, Point Loma, the Cabrillo National Monument, and more!

The first person to drive across San Diego's Coronado Bridge when it first opened was Ronald Reagan, back in 1969. For more fascinating facts, just hop on board this sailing adventure around the San Diego Bay!

Your knowledgeable guide will point out the sights along the way, like the landmark Victorian-style property known as Hotel del Coronado on Coronado Island, the Point Loma Lighthouse, and the sea lions and other animals you may encounter.

Other highlights such as Seaport Village, Shelter Island and more are on the itinerary as you cruise over 13 miles on the Big Bay. Soak up the best of San Diego!

Didn’t see any SeaLions however the information on the bay was interesting ... when we could hear the speaker, seemed very muffled sometimes.
