Sightseeing Yacht Charters
San Diego Bay History
Sightseeing yacht charters will provide you with much of the history of San Diego, from its discovery in September 28, 1542 by Guatemalan explorer Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo to current times. A great place to get a view of San Diego Bay is at Cabrillo National Monument at the end of Point Loma – the picture below was taken from there.
The port which he discovered and named San Miguel would later be called San Diego Bay. His ship more than likely anchored at Ballast Point, just beside what is now the Navy Submarine dry dock (at the land outcropping at the left below). He stayed in the area for only 6 days before continuing to sail up the coast. It was only 6 months later on Catalina Island that he died from an infection which became gangrenous.
Sightseeing Charter – During the Day
There will also be lots of wildlife such as sea lions, seals, birds as well dolphins and whales are not uncommon. We will be getting very close to the sea-lions (so close that you will be able to smell them), so bring your camera as you are sure to get some great pictures.
The Light House is open for visitors and the area provides an incredible view of San Diego Bay.
We encourage you to visit her.
Yacht Charters – Evening and Night
Evening and night charters are operated throughout the year, but starting and ending times vary depending on the season. The yacht can be enclosed and heated, so you will be very comfortable.
These peaceful charters slowly cruise many areas of the bay such as La Playa (also know as America’s cup Harbor), Shelter Island, Harbor Island, downtown San Diego and Glorietta Bay.
Anchoring for a short period to watch the boats come and go is also possible. During the summer months the San Diego Symphony has the series the Summer Pops. Attending one of these by yacht is a real treat, floating on the water listening to the concert. This middle picture below was taken at such a concert.
