At Cruise San Diego, we are passionate about our waters and the history and wildlife that surround us. Part of that history starts with the OHANA, our beautiful vessel that serves as the platform for all of our bay cruises. This aluminum passenger ferry was built by the Chaffee Machine Company of San Diego for the Wrigley Family, yes the makers of the famous chewing gum. The vessel was designed to provide year-round service for their family and friends between Los Angeles and Catalina Island (which they also owned). After their passing, the vessel and Catalina Island were deeded to the State of California. The Cabrillo, as she was known back then, was then purchased by a private investor to run whale watching trips out of Long Beach, CA before Cruise San Diego found her and decided to bring her back home. Cruise San Diego is a locally owned and operated company whose mission is to share the beauty and history of our waters with our customers.

  • I have gone on two trips on the Ohana, and both trips were awesome. We saw several very active whales, a ton of dolphins, breaching sea lions, and a variety of birds. The staff is super friendly and provides useful info throughout the trip. Being out at sea and taking in the beautiful coastline is pretty great too. I'm looking forward to taking another trip as soon as possible.
  • My family reserved the Captain’s Bridge and it was well worth the money. We boarded first and had the best view the entire time. Captain James was great. He explained what everything was around the bay and gave us great recommendations for local beaches and attractions. I would take this cruise again.
