Enjoy the sunshine on the observation deck, or head inside the ship for climate-controlled seating and a snack bar.

Hornblower San Diego

San Diego’s picturesque harbor—awash with graceful bridges, sweeping views, and glimpses of sea lions—has thrilled passengers on Hornblower San Diego's ships for more than 30 years. The large fleet includes an antique yacht and one of the largest charter yachts in Southern California, and each cruise is narrated by a knowledgeable expert. An environmentally concerned company, Hornblower San Diego introduces passengers to ecological problems and ongoing environmental projects in the area on its cruises.

They have a large and fast whale watching vessel of its kind and these two features prevent guest from being as prone to getting seasick and also improves our chances to enjoy more whales -guest will be higher off the water and on a wider boat allowing for more stability and greater vantage point for viewing whales -we have climate controlled interiors which are a luxury considering how cold it gets -we have multiple bathrooms on all of our interior decks.

Great experience! The Captain was so accommodating along with the crew and especially the volunteers from the museum. Wonderful!

Really nice, a must-do in SD, we were surrounded by whales and later dolphins, the staff did their best to make sure we had a great whale watching experience!

The Hornblower is comfortable and the tour guides are interesting and informative. Wonderful trip for adults, young kids would do better on the one-hour tour that goes North without the added hour South.
