What a great way to see the Harbor! Great Tour. We took the tour hour. It runs every hour, it goes one hour north and one hour south. You get on at your scheduled time and cruise one hour, then come back, load and unload and then cruise the 2nd hour. It was an extremely informative tour. If possible, sit... More

We took the two hour tour and sat on the top deck of the boat. Very comfortable ride. Wonderful views of the huge military fleet docked along the shore. Very breezy.

She straitened out a problem and mix up with the other cruise line (Hornblower).who by the way offered no help. She called and emailed me until... More

We enjoyed a lovely sunset cruise. The staff was friendly, the appetizers were yummy and the bartender was generous with his pours. The boat was clean and had a variety of viewing options to choose from. We could be out on the deck or upstairs protected from the wind when it got chilly. The music was a bit loud for... More

Our group of four took a dinner cruise and were not disappointed. The ship was in excellent condition and very clean. Service was excellent and it was enjoyable from start to finish. One minor suggestion for Flagship to help the 'tourists'. We were not looking for a narration, but it would added to the experience if announcements were made. For... More

We went on a Flagship Brunch Tour in the San Diego Harbor and had a great time. The views from the Ship were very nice although the small Flagship Cruise ship are a little more bumpy than the Hornblower Ships. The brunch and the Champagne were excellent. We also took advantage of the Senior discount provided by Flagship cruises. The... More

Be prepared to get wet and don't make the mistake we did...wear the poncho! Or you will get drenched. It was a fun ride though.

Perfect entertainment at "sea". Well worth the very reasonable cost and for all ages. Great views on tour I and II and both quite different. Very comfortable couple of hours in the sun, wind with the feel of a voyage. I am not very mobile but I had no problems.

Great fun. Provided with ponchos that we did not really need for the first 15 mins so people then started to take them off. Big mistake because thats when the crew really ramped it up and people started to get really wet. We were 2 adults, our son who is 20 and our daughter who is 13 and we all... More

Found them on Groupon and paid $9.40 for a tour. We went as a large group. It was super fun. Totally worth regular price. Nice boat that offers snacks and drinks on board during the narrated tour of San Diego.Took a group photo for purchase.
