Souvenir photo with Santa


Pose for photos with Santa, sip a festive mimosa, tuck into a delicious buffet, and watch the sunny shores of San Diego drift by on this holiday excursion. Spend part of Christmas cruising the calm waters of the city’s bay, savoring a scrumptious brunch and enjoying scenic views.

Climb aboard a spacious yacht with a special greeting from Santa Claus, who poses for a picture with you and your loved ones. On your way to the table, grab a refreshing mimosa and gaze out the window as your vessel leaves the dock and heads for open water.

Head to the buffet table, which is brimming with steaming plates of cinnamon-swirl French toast, chilled bowls of fresh fruit, and sweet tooth-satisfying desserts. Fill your plate and consider grabbing a glass of juice or another flute of champagne to sip with your meal.

As you dine, listen to narration about the sights and landmarks passing by. While the cruise winds to a close, enjoy a hot cup of coffee or tea, say your goodbyes to Santa, and disembark your vessel to enjoy the rest of Christmas back on shore.
