Head down to San Diego Bay with today’s Groupon for one of the best views of the city (the one from the west). Twelve dollars gets you a two-hour harbor tour aboard a Hornblower cruise ship. You’ll hear narration about San Diego’s history and landmark sites and enjoy up-close views of the abundant marine life, including lingering ganders at all the adorable sea lions you can cuddle with your eyes. Learn something new about your city and relax on the water with your crew.
Hornblower, in an effort to preserve the cuteness of sea lions (also known as “aqua-puppies”), has converted its fleet to run on bio-diesel and is partnering with the Port of San Diego to promote environmentally sound practices in and around the bay. You and your friends can enjoy your cruise with the knowledge that efforts are underway to ensure that the natural beauty around you is still there for future generations.

“Had a terrific whale watching cruise! Our teenager and our 8 and 7 year old enjoyed it as much as the adults. Very comfortable boat with lots of indoor and outdoor seating. Onboard naturalists from the science museum added so much to the experience. Helped to take a little medicine or wear bioband to avoid sea sickness.”
“Had a great time! Definitely take a windbreaker -- even on a sunny day.”
