Get ready to enjoy the sights and sounds of the magnificent San Diego Bay as you step aboard this spectacular dinner cruise!

The celebration begins the moment you step aboard with a glass of champagne. After being escorted to your private table grab a cocktail on the deck and watch the sun go down before enjoying a romantic three-course dinner prepared fresh by on-board chefs.

After dinner, dance to the music of San Diego's hottest DJs or just watch the sights drift by from the outdoor decks.

The Big Bay, as locals call San Diego Bay, boasts some of America's most historic warships such as the U.S.S. Ronald Reagan and the U.S.S. Midway as well as playing host to the scenic sights of the Coronado Bay Bridge and Seaport Village to name just a few.

So whether you are looking for a romantic evening for two, a birthday celebration, or just something different to do, jump aboard for an unforgettable experience!

"This was a 100% wonderful experience starting with the SUPERB Erin Claxton who was informative, attentive and so efficient in booking. The ship and particularly our waiter, Salvador "Sal," were out of this world He made us feel like the only two people on the ship. He works for Hornblower, I believe, and was absolutely incredible. A beautiful evening to celebrate my birthday. Kudos to all. A job very very well done all the way around!!!! Thank you and I would highly recommend to all!"

"What a wonderful dinner cruise. We had never been on one and thought it would be a nice way to see parts of San Diego. The staff was amazing, so sweet and thoughtful (we got an awesome seat for our honeymoon). Good music too! Loved going on a Wednesday --- only 28 guests which meant lots of room for us to move around. Even saw fireworks that night!"
