San Diego Bay is one of the most beautiful natural bays and harbors in the world and ...
BayDreamin' Cruises is the only way to see the Bay. BayDreamin' 1 is a water limo with cushioned limo-style seating and all-around viewing in a full enclosure. See all of the natural and man-made wonders of the harbor from sea lions, water birds, endangered Brown Pelicans, and occasional dolphins, to the Maritime Museum (home of the Star of India, HMS Surprise and others), the awesome aircraft carrier USS Midway, Downtown Skyline and the Nuclear Aircraft Carrier Moorings and more. The gentle winds of the Pacific move over the bay and harbor and create an atmosphere of delight.
The tour is narrated live, as little or as much as you desire. Learn everything we know about the bay, or tell us to be quiet so you can talk among yourselves, or anything in between. This is your BayDream.
No matter which cruise you choose, you never know what else you may see on the bay and the harbor -- mock tall ship battles, America's Cup yachts, wildlife, Navy Seal boats, and civilian and military aircraft.
Advance purchase strongly recommended! Cruises sell out quickly!
Up Close and Personal Guided Bay Tours
All our cruises and tours are on an 18-foot, 11-passenger electric boat, skippered by Mike and Jackie McNabb, USCG Licensed Captains. We take a maximum of 6 people per cruise, so you have plenty of room, comfortable seating, and a more intimate, personal experience. We take a minimum of 2 people. You will have no diesel fumes or noise, and we can get much closer to sights than the larger tour boats. On the bay and harbor, we will make your cruise as comfortable and flexible as possible. The clear enclosure protects you from rain or wind, but can be opened to let in the fresh air as you wish. You are welcome to bring your own food and beverages on board. If all the passengers want to spend less time at one sight and more time at another, that's no problem -- this is your BayDream! The big tour boats won't offer that option. Find out more about the boat on the More About the Boat web page.
