Nice diversion
Sep 2021
A promenade facing downtown San Diego skyline is a great place for a walk or a bike ride. The strip mall area is an additional pleasant diversion.

Charming, Clean.
Jul 2021
Any boardwalk area has its share of cheap souvenir and tee-shirt shops. Not atypical, they are all over here but there are some beautiful gems waiting to surprise.

Very nice restaurants such as Peoche's and Il Fornaio, a blond sand beach, and a very long walking and biking path along the shore make The Coronado Ferry Landing a very enjoyable day outing.

Get there via the free shuttle and take the $5 ferry to San Diego rather than driving across the bridge and fighting for parking.

Any visit to Coronado should include a visit to the ferry landing.

Nice views of San Diego

Beautiful location overseeing the city of San Diego. This is like a small version of Pier 39 in San Francisco or Faneuil Hall in Boston. A number of eateries and shops. Kayak and bicycle rentals available nearby

Decent place for outdoor activities
Dec 2020 • Family
The Ferry Landing is like a place that offers 3 in 1. There are eateries and shops (very pricey restaurants), views of the San Diego Bay and downtown, and bike paths and pedestrian trails for exercise (bike rentals are available if you didn't bring your own). I'd highly recommend this place if you like taking pictures because the views are just fantastic!

Best deal in town!
Oct 2020
Great, cheap, nice ride to Coronado from the embarcadero or vice versa. No bathroom on board and nothing to buy, but it is only a 15 minute ride. Easy going--you won't get seasick. You can buy tix from window or machine.

No toilet facilities on boats. No water to purchase. Otherwise, OK. Good views of San Diego waterfront.

Cheapest way to be on the water in San Diego!
Feb 2020
The ferry landing itself offers a small sandy beach and grass area and close access to okay to great restaurants, coffee shops and the usual trinkets. This north side of Coronado offers fabulous views of the San Diego skyline, sailboats, tugs, US Navy ships and SEAL boats. If you are inclined, you can even fish off the end of the short pier. It is a great place to people watch or be seen strolling the wide bayside walkway/bike path. Bikes and human powered contraptions can be rented at the nearby shops.

If you are staying in Coronado, use the ferry to get to the San Diego waterfront and downtown. It is a nice short scenic ride, and even in the choppiest bay conditions, you are not likely to have any ill effects. The fare is currently $5 each way per person, but if you leave from the Coronado side by the 08:30 ferry, the ride is free, and they give you a return pass, because, of course, you are a “commuter.” On the San Diego waterfront, you can stroll in either direction … south to the Convention Center and north as far as your feet will let you. If you are staying in downtown San Diego, a day trip to Coronado is well worth the time and taking the ferry is one of the ways to go. Once there, if you have your walking shoes on, the Pacific Ocean is about 1.5 miles across town and through the downtown area. You can pay to take a tram, free in the summer months, or you can always call a cab. Visit the Hotel del Coronado, linger downtown and venture into the residential neighborhoods on the way back to the bay.

The ferry personnel are friendly enough, but tend to see to their business without much interaction. The ferry is clean and you can bring a bike or stroller. The tourists will be up top taking in the views and the locals will most likely be below and away from the wind and elements. The ride is about 15 minutes.

Least expensive way to view the San Diego skyline from the water
Jan 2020
Although there is no guide narrating a tour script, by taking the ferry you get to see both sides of the bay, and the ferry takes you right beside the USS MIdway museum.
You purchase a ticket - a receipt really, from a machine at the head of the dock, using either cash or plastic.
A great way to get to San Diego and back without the hassles of bridge or freeway traffic!

Trip by ferry to San Diego
Jan 2020 • Couples
Took the ferry from Coronado mid week to downtown San Diego. A great way to avoid traffic and have a great view of the water from Coronado Bay. Took the ferry back to Coronado in the afternoon. $20 return for 2 people. Great bargain quick trip back and forth.
