Hornblower Cruises & Events is adding a new early start time on their traditional San Diego daytime harbor cruise starting May 26th. Visitors who are “up and at ‘em” early can start their San Diego adventure with an 8:45 am departure.
“We’re answering a huge demand for an early cruise from both our European and east coast visitors still on their time zones and from individuals compressing their SD experience into only a few days to fit in all the sights” says Kelly Johnson, Public Cruise Manager for Hornblower Cruises in San Diego.
“With our new 8:45 early cruise, guests can enjoy a spin around San Diego Bay and then have plenty of time left in their day to head over to USS Midway and time for the Zoo or SeaWorld,” commented Rebecca Milkey, Director of Marketing, Hornblower Cruises & Events.
What is the allure of this new cruise?
Morning light! Photo buffs will love the crisp morning light offering a fresh new look to familiar sights and landmarks on the bay. Highlights include wildlife from sea birds to sea lions and more than fifty San Diego landmarks, such as the Star of India, submarines, aircraft carriers, North Island Air Station, and the Point Loma Lighthouse.
Free coffee and Coffee Cocktails for $5! Enough said. Everyone loves a cup of coffee early in the morning. And for only $5 you can spike up your fresh-brew with a variety of liqueurs and cordials from our snack bar.
