Choose San Diego's Truly Local Cruise & Events Fleet

Set sail with a San Diego original. Our family business, Flagship Cruises & Events, has been serving and entertaining San Diego since 1915. We own and operate San Diego’s largest and finest fleet, ranging from luxury yachts to the Patriot, our 2,800-horsepower jet boat, to the iconic Coronado Ferry.

Our professional crew is the best in the business at providing San Diego visitors and tourists with experiences they will remember for a lifetime. Whether it is helping a child see a whale for the first time, making a couple's magical dream wedding come true, or watching them return to celebrate their 40th anniversary under the Coronado Bridge, our team strives to treat you and everyone aboard like family. San Diego is our home and every day we look forward to sharing all it's unique beauty with you.
