Pet Day on the Bay to benefit the Helen Woodward Animal Center

On May 17th, Hornblower Cruises & Events will host its 14th annual “Pet Day on the Bay” to benefit the Helen Woodward Animal Center (HWAC), a local nonprofit that provides care and comfort to orphaned and injured animals. On this special day each year, dogs are welcomed aboard to enjoy a fun-filled harbor cruise with their owners.

Highlights include:

Best Sightseeing on San Diego Bay with Your Dog: These one-hour cruises offer breathtaking views of the San Diego skyline and storied landmarks, as well as a chance to experience delightful marine animals and majestic sea birds up close.

Delectable Doggie Treat Bar: A special smorgasbord, sponsored by Petco, will pamper pups throughout the cruise with a variety of mouthwatering treats.

Expert Dog Training Tips: Experts from Petco’s dog training department will share helpful advice and suggestions for dog owners wanting to brush up on their pet handling skills.
