So much fun!, 6/23/2010

If you have never gone on this cruise I highly recommend it. There is nothing quite like it and for people who live in San Diego it is kind of a rite of passage. It's tons of fun and is basically a... booze cruise!

Great Way to Experience San Diego

This is a unique way to experience San Diego via a beautiful boat. The quality of the food is average. The service is average and the value is average. For special occasions this is a fun alternative to just a plain restaurant.

Hornblower Whale Watching Tour

This was a good time. We only saw one whale but the dolphins actually stole the show. There were tons of dolphins following the boat and sporaticly they would jump at least 6 feet out of the water. The boat had a little galley area where you could buy hot chocolate and snacks which was nice too.

Nice Dinner Cruise

This is a nice thing to do on a special occasion. A little overpriced for just an everyday thing. Great views and good food.
