Since 1915, San Diego Harbor Excursion boats have cruised San Diego's waters creating memorable experiences for residents and tourists alike.  Entering their 95th year in operation, the company decided it was time for a change...a name change that is. 

Flagship Cruises & Events' CEO Arthur Engel explained the change. "The name 'Flagship Cruises & Events' more closely reflects the wide-array of amazing experiences that we offer today.  In addition to our spectacular signature San Diego harbor cruises, we also offer holiday parties, dinner cruises, corporate events, weddings, award-winning brunches, whale watching, ferry services, shopping, restaurants and much more."  The company also operates a variety of ancillary businesses like the Bay Cafe and the Glorietta Gift Shop. 

"We want to thank the San Diego community and all of the visitors who have supported us over the years as we've evolved as a company and we hope many people will join us for our celebration cruises in October," added Engel.  "We may have a new name but our commitment to the best events, dining and nautical adventures remains the same."

San Diego Harbor Excursion is celebrating their 95th anniversary and unveiling its new branding as Flagship Cruises & Events by offering $9.50 harbor cruises on October 22, 23 and 24, 2010.  The company is also inviting passengers to join the Grand Reopening Cruise celebration on October 22 at 10 a.m.
