Bow Wow Brunch is just like the weekly Sunday Champagne Brunch Cruise, but we welcome you, your family and your "fur child" aboard. You will enjoy the same delicious and bountiful buffet that you are accustom to with unlimited champagne and desserts, but Fido gets a pet buffet to choose from along with a dog relief area set up on the sun deck of the yacht! Portion of the proceeds for the Bow Wow Brunch on the Bay will go directly to helping Helen Woodward Animal Center. Special guest, Chopper the Biker Dog, will be making an appearance for photo opportunities!

Bow Wow Brunch Cruise and POLICIES -Let’s make this a fun and SAFE day for everyone!!!

  • BE AWARE: You are responsible for your dog onboard.
  • Dogs must be “social” and get along well with other people and other dogs.
  • BE RESPONSIBLE: Clean up after your pet. If your dog has an accident onboard, please do your best to clean it up with your dog waste bag and inform a Hornblower crew member so we can do a heavier cleaning after!
  • If your dog gets in an altercation with another dog that causes an injury, Hornblower is not responsible for the treatment or vet charges either party may experience. You are responsible for the safety of your pet onboard.

It's great that Hornblower does the Bow Wow cruises. We plan on going every year. Also we enjoyed the cruise so much we are planning on doing a dinner cruise.

Bow wow yo, yippy yay...this was our doggie's finest day!The Hornblower has all sorts of different themed cruises departing from the San Diego Harbor, but I'll bet this is the most unique and most cutest event yet.
