San Diego's Place for Birthdays

Ideal for:

  • Birthdays and Anniversaries  – We have vessels to match your party size, featuring music and dancing and ever-changing views. Great for milestone birthdays  (30th, 40th, 50th, 60th), Sweet Sixteens, Quinceañeras, and romantic and elegant anniversary celebrations. Whether your vision is intimate or over-the-top, we can scale our efforts to match your needs. DJs? Live band? Seated dinner or stations? It’s all customizable.
  • Graduation Parties – Now is the time to reserve a yacht for your private graduation event. Party on the bay surrounded by beautiful sights and elegant service. It's a great reward for your grads who worked so hard to reach this goal.
  • Any Occasion – We have hosted every kind of gathering imaginable. Lunch and dinner cruises for reunions, military celebrations, religious celebrations like bar mitzvahs and bat mitzvahs, holiday parties, every aspect of weddings from engagement parties to bacherlor/bachelorette parties, bridal showers, rehearsal dinners and of course the ceremony and reception. (...even a few divorce parties.) The point is, if you’ve got a group and something to celebrate, give us a chance to make it something spectacular.

Why Choose Flagship?

Flagship is a family-owned business. Quality is our highest priority. From the way your guests are greeted when they arrive, to the quality of fresh food and variety of beverages we serve, to the comfort and modern amenities available on board, no one takes having fun more seriously than we do. We are San Diego's only locally owned and operated cruise and event company. We are not a national chain. We know these waters as well as anyone, and love hosting parties on the bay—birthdays, anniversaries, reunions—whatever the special occasion may be, we have more experience at creating satisfied customers than any other cruise fleet in San Diego.

School Outings

Being on the bay brings out the kid in all of us. But no one loves events on a Flagship yacht more than kids. This makes us an ideal venue choice for school outings of all shapes and sizes. From elementary school to high school to college and universities, we’ve sailed with them all.

Flagship’s vessels are a popular choice for proms, graduation parties, homecoming events and formals. We host reunions and fraternity and sorority events. It’s a great experience for students, faculty and staff.

Talk to us about how we can make your school event sparkle. We provide unlimited soft drinks for younger passengers, as well as security, chaperone passes, snacks—and can make things as formal or informal as you like. Whatever it takes to make your school event a success.

=Flagship Chef Brian Gist

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!
