San Diego Harbor Highlights

Take a San Diego harbor Hornblower cruise or Flagship Cruise and experience San Diego Bay from a dolphin’s perspective. Stroll, bike, or skate along San Diego Embarcadero to or from Seaport Village. Relax and count the sailboats and sailors--sailing against the backdrop of the graceful Coronado Bay Bridge. A lovely seafood meal, a Coronado ferry boat ride at twilight to Coronado… just a few of San Diego Bay's endless possibilities.

Harbor/Bay Attractions

The Embarcadero (Spanish for wharf) along Harbor Drive covers the area from the Star of India to Seaport Village. Consider starting along the scenic San Diego Harbor and strolling from Embarcadero Marina Park, which borders Seaport Village and the San Diego Convention Center, to the Maritime Museum's Star of India, the oldest active sailing ship in the world and the pride of San Diego Bay.

Embarcadero Marina Park is not only a great place for the kids to run around, but it offers of San Diego’s best views. On the way, you’ll pass Broadway Pier, where the Coronado Ferry and Harbor Cruises depart. A little farther, at Harbor Drive and Ash Street, lies the Star of India. Don’t miss walking the decks of this magnificent ship and discovering San Diego’s rich maritime heritage. The other vessels in the Maritime Museum fleet are also well worth a visit.

Visitors can now enjoy the Midway Museum, the longest serving aircraft carrier in the history of the U.S. Navy. See the flight deck, hangar deck and mess hall--just as they were when this historic vessel was in service.

Dining & Shops

For lunch, dinner, or anything in between, try Anthony’s Fish Grotto, Fishette, or the upscale Star of the Sea, also at Harbor Drive and Ash. Back at Seaport Village there’s always something happening in addition to the charming shops and diverse restaurants.

Logistics (San Diego Bay Map)

Harbor Drive has metered spaces. There’s also free parking at Embarcadero Marina Park (by Convention Center and Seaport Village) and 2-hour free parking at Seaport Village (with any purchase). You can also park at the pay lot at Ash Street and Pacific Coast Highway (just east of and parallel to Harbor Drive).

Getting There (San Diego Bay Map)

From Mission Valley, take I-8 west to I-5 south, exit at Front Street, and turn right on Ash Street, which ends at Harbor Drive and the Star of India. A left turn on Harbor Drive will lead you to Seaport Village.

San Diego Harbor Insider Tips

The Embarcadero is a short drive south on Harbor Drive from the San Diego Airport, Harbor Island, and Shelter Island; it’s also just a few blocks west of downtown and the Gaslamp District. You can take a bike across on the ferry or rent one on the Coronado side. At the Coronado Ferry Landing, you’ll find specialty shops, restaurants, a waterfront park, sandy beaches, a fishing pier, and a bay-front bike path.

Try the beer sampler at the Harbor House Restaurant located in Seaport Village. The Harbor House beer sampler includes 6 locally brewed craft beers such as Alesmith, Coronado Brewing Co. and Port Brewing.

The Embarcadero is an easy walk from San Diego International Airport. If you're on layover or simply like the simplicity and exercise of walking--the Embarcadero, Downtown and Seaport Village are easy walks from the airport.

Harbor Island and Shelter Island are great places for quiet, romantic getaways for couples to enjoy a walk or just a peaceful moment overlooking San Diego Bay.
