Make your own way to the Maritime Museum to board your whale-watching cruise on the luxury sailing schooner America.
Travel back in time when sailing on the America, a replica of the sailing ship that won the first America's Cup sailing competition in 1851. Your classic sailing vessel provides a smooth ride and spacious decks, perfect for sailing on the Pacific Ocean in search of gray whales and other marine life. Since your boat principally moves under wind power without using the engine, your captain can get closer to the marine animals without scaring them. The boat's deep keel provides excellent stability and large decks offer unobstructed views, making the America a prime vessel for whale-watching.
Snacks and drinks (non-alcoholic) are offered during the cruise. You are welcome to bring along a picnic lunch or favorite bottle of wine to enjoy onboard.
Your cruise includes admission to San Diego Maritime Museum, making this package an excellent value. San Diego Maritime Museum boasts one of the world's finest collections of historic ships, including the world's oldest active ship Star of India. Visit the San Diego Maritime Museum either before or after your cruise; your museum admission is only valid for the same day as your whale-watching cruise.
Whale sightings are guaranteed on your cruise. If no whales are sighted, you can return for a complimentary whale-watching cruise on another day in the same season. The America also provides a 'No Seasickness' guarantee. If you get seasick during your cruise, you can return for a complimentary cruise on another day, or receive a gift certificate for lunch at the San Diego Fish Market.
