Fall and Winter in San Diego are the perfect times to charter a boat for whale watching as they migrate from cool Northern waters down the coast of California. The whales make their way to the Sea of Cortez, coming close to shore and providing viewers the experience of a lifetime. Our licensed captain will get your group as close as Maritime restrictions allow to these magnificent creatures.

Thank you to California Cruisin’ and Ken Cohen for a beautiful wedding and ceremony that made our day even more special and memorable!


Kiara A. – San Diego, CA, Wedding Yacht Charter

Went on a 4 hour cruise around San Diego Bay and out whale watching. What a great way to see the city and to check out the whales and dolphins! The captain was very knowledgable about the history of the bay and where to find whales. The boat was beautiful, clean, and well maintained. We brought our own “picnic” supplies, but were told that box lunches and full-on catering is also available. Definitely recommend for a day on the bay or overnight accommodations for something fun and different.

D M. – San Diego, CA, Power Boat Charter Guest

Words cannot express our gratitude to Ken for making a very difficult day into a memory we will cherish for years to come. Ken was professional, cordial, and respectful of our wishes throughout the journey, and for that our entire family is very thankful. We would highly recommend California Cruisin” for any of your boat charter needs.

Joe F. – San Diego, CA, Scattering of Ashes Yacht Charter Guests

Our trip around San Diego Bay aboard California Cruisin’ was nothing short of amazing. What a beautiful city by water! From the city skyline, to the Coronado Bridge, North Island, and Point Loma, the scenery was breathtaking. We saw dolphins, sea lions, pelicans and many other seabirds. The captain was gracious, capable and knowledgeable. The entire family enjoyed the experience and would definitely do it again! We highly recommend it for any event.

CJ M. – San Diego, CA, Power Boat Charter Guest

We went for this really nice harbor cruise last Sunday. The weather was beautiful, the boat looked like new and we had a really nice tour of the harbor for a few hours. The front of the boat is perfect for those more interested in soaking the sun. I personally preferred the upper deck with its cover to protect us a little from the sun. The captain had great stories about San Diego, the harbor and its boats which made the tour a fascinating experience.

I warmly recommend to anyone who has never taken the time to discover San Diego from the water. It looks very different from that point of view.

G. B. – Vista, CA, Power Boat Charter Guest

The tour is very nice. The Captain was very nice and friendly, and connected very well with all of us. His boat was beautiful and nicely kept, and he took us to interesting places along the harbor. We got to see seals, submarines, and even dolphins! The Captain played good music during the tour. It was a very fun and relaxing experience, and I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to explore the harbor.

Morgane B. – Vista, CA, Power Boat Charter Guest

If you’ve ever wanted to stay on a boat instead of in a hotel for a getaway weekend or while visiting San Diego — or to cruise San Diego Bay for an afternoon, give Ken at California Cruisin’ a call. He’s friendly, knowledgeable and a great tour guide. We’ve stayed on their boats twice and cruised with him twice — each time was great fun. And he can tailor your visit or trip to meet your needs. Call him and go spend some time on the water.
