San Diego’s harbor and coastline offer stunning views and coastal breezes. A chartered cruise is the perfect way to spend a family afternoon or evening while enjoying the beautiful, sunny city in a relaxing and engaging atmosphere. Numerous charters are available offering brunch and dinner cruises, harbor tours, and whale watching excursions. (Whale watching excursions are available mid-December through mid-April.)
The newest in the harbor tour lineup is just perfect for families with an adventurous spirit. Pirate Ship Adventures now offers San Diego visitors (and their pirate loving kiddos) the chance to hop on board an authentic looking pirate ship set for cruising the ocean’s waves in a more interactive style. Visitors on Pirate Ship Adventure’s tours are engulfed in a themed pirate journey with a swashbuckling crew, entertainment, a gift shop, snack shop and a few surprises.
The “Lost Treasure Excursion” cruise puts you in the middle of an old-fashioned pirate treasure hunt full of mutiny, sword fights, singing and dancing. You must keep a look out as rival pirates have been known to attempt to steal the plunder. Get the canons ready and prepare to fight for your fortune! The ships hold no more than 49 guests, so everyone is sure to get a good look at all of the action. Guests have the choice of joining in on the role-playing fun or sitting back as a casual observer. The tour lasts about 1 ½ hours and is perfect for pirates and mateys of all ages.
Since the crew is decked out in pirate regalia, add to the fun and come in costume. If you didn’t pack your swabbing clothes, don’t worry, you can purchase your own gear at the gift shop on deck, offering hats, eye patches, swords, bandanas, shirts, and accessories.
