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.
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.
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.
