Meet the Chef
Chef Brian Gist celebrates flavor and diversity with a modern and unique take on traditional West Coast fine dining. A Seattle native, Gist received his formal training from the California Culinary Academy in San Francisco. He cultivated his unique flavors and skills at renowned establishments such as Salish Lodge, La Costa Resort and Spa, and The Harbor Club.
After impressing diners up and down the west coast and mastering a range of international cuisine on private yachts in Panama, Mexico, and Canada, Gist returned to San Diego and joined the Flagship team in 2000.
Chef Gist takes advantage of San Diego’s proximity to fresh-caught seafood and local vegetables. The fish you eat on a Flagship Cruise was caught that day and the vegetables were sourced from nearby California farms whenever possible. These are more than just details; they take the dining experience to new levels. Your guests deserve it!

Who could ask for more?
We had complements from everyone... 'best wedding ever,' 'truly a unique experience,' 'great views of the harbor, downtown San Diego, and Coronado,' and it goes on and on and on.
The yacht was beautiful, the food was great. The staff was professional, friendly and willing to do whatever it took to make my wedding day run smoothly.
Our guests are still bragging about the service aboard the ship, the wonderfully sumptuous meal prepared right on board, and the unique venue of the San Diego Bay.
The staff was amazing. I could not have asked for better service! Everyone was so sweet and very professional. They made our perfect day even better!
I was especially impressed with the staff - they paid attention to all of the tiny details that make a wedding and reception great! I have never seen such fantastic customer service, it was truly exceptional.
All of the guests raved about the cruise and our son and his fiancée couldn't have been happier. It was the absolutely perfect celebration!
Our guests could not stop talking about this event! It was our wedding day and special, but Flagship made it even more over the top than we could imagine! I recommend any couple looking for a unique wedding venue to impress your guests this is the one!
I thought it might be too cookie cutter instead of individualized. I was wrong! They allowed us to personalize everything that we wanted.
All weddings carry some stress, but I must admit, Flagship Cruises made ours one of the most stress-free events imaginable ... the service provided was top notch!
We had our wedding aboard the California Princess on September 24th and it was the best decision we could have ever made! The staff is great to work with, the boat itself is gorgeous and clean, and the wedding package/service makes everything easy for a minimal and out-of-town bride such as myself.
The staff at the wedding were amazing and my champagne glass was always full! My friend said that she was very stress-free during the entire wedding planning process.
Outstanding service on a beautiful yacht. For a wedding, this is the best venue and the best value in San Diego!
The staff is great to work with, the boat itself is gorgeous and clean, and the wedding package/service makes everything easy for a minimal and out-of-town bride such as myself.
