Enjoy a San Diego Sunset on the Bahia Belle, then Dance the Night Away

Our classic sternwheeler, the Bahia Belle, provides complimentary family-hour and cocktail cruises on Mission Bay for our valued guests. Our 74-foot, 3-story sternwheeler offers an observation deck to view the beautiful sites of the 4,200-acre aquatic park, and is the perfect venue to relax and unwind at the end of the day.

We invite you to enjoy a picturesque sunset, drinks, snacks, and family activities until 9:00 p.m., after which the Bahia Belle transforms into the entertainment hub of Mission Bay with music and dancing late into the night. Priority boarding is given to our resort guests. Non-resort guests can purchase tickets at the door.

The Bahia Belle is currently cruising Mission Bay Friday — Sunday.
