Ocean Excursion to Mission Bay:

Enjoy an exhilarating ride as you explore a beautiful and dramatic stretch of California coastline from Point Loma to Mission Bay, and leave the hustle and bustle of the city behind for the afternoon. Mission Bay, originally called “False Bay” by early explorers, is the largest man-made aquatic park in the country, and the Bay is surrounded by 19 miles of beaches, numerous islands, pathways, gorgeous high-end resorts and of course, Sea World.

This excursion takes you farther North along the coast to the La Jolla, San Diego’s jewel on the sea. La Jolla is famous for its spectacular rocky coastline and there is no better vantage to appreciate its beauty than from the ocean.

Ocean Excursion to 9-Mile Bank:

On this trip, you will head West into the open ocean to reach 9 Mile Bank, which as the name implies, is an underwater plateau located about nine miles from the entrance to San Diego Bay. A popular fishing destination, this enormous bank attracts not only many different varieties of fish, but also various species of dolphins and whales year round.
