San Diego: Best of Coronado and Ferry Ride from San Diego

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    This ferry ride to and 3-hour tour of Coronado from San Diego starts at 8:30am. On the day of your tour, make your way to the entrance of Broadway Pier to meet your guide and small group. 
    Jump on a ferry that departs for Coronado at 9am sharp. Your boat takes you across the San Diego Bay, as you take in scenic views of the water. You can even spot the Coronado Bridge along your journey.
    When you get to Coronado, we will board local transit and head down Orange Avenue to arrive in the main part of town.  Window shopping will make us hungry so we will make a quick stop for a snack - locally made and absolutely delicious!
    We'll make our way to Star Park, home to the 'Wizard of Oz' house and then make our way to Coronado Beach. Stroll along the beach, past multi-million dollar homes, hear stories of the various residents including the tales of historic Spreckels Mansion.
    Our last stop is at the Hotel del Coronado. The hotel is known for hosting residents and celebrities.  We will tour the grounds and finish up just outside the famed Crown Room.  This is where your tour comes to an end, but don’t worry, your guide leaves you with advice on what to do next. He or she also tells you ways to get back for when you’re ready.

    The tour ends on the opposite side of Coronado from the ferry. But there are buses there that can take you either back to the ferry or over the bridge and back to San Diego directly.
