San Diego Bay has some of the most amazing monuments to see from the water! The stunning Coronado Bridge connects San Diego to Coronado Island and offers breathtaking views of the bay. You can also marvel at the USS Midway Museum, a historic naval aircraft carrier museum located at Navy Pier, showcasing a collection of aircraft and exhibits. Another highlight is the Star of India, the world’s oldest active sailing ship, docked at the Maritime Museum of San Diego. As you cruise along, you’ll pass by Seaport Village, a waterfront shopping and dining complex with picturesque views and unique shops. At the tip of Point Loma, the Cabrillo National Monument commemorates the landing of Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo and offers panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and San Diego Bay. The Embarcadero Marina Park provides scenic open spaces, walking paths, and views of the bay and city skyline. You’ll also sail by Shelter Island, a long strip of land offering marinas, parks, and a distinctively nautical ambiance, and Harbor Island, known for its resorts, marinas, and dining options, providing excellent views of the city and the bay. These landmarks make a yacht rental in San Diego Bay a memorable experience with a blend of natural beauty and historical significance.
