Dog Days San Diego, Dogs Cruise FREE

17th Annual Pet Day on the Bay -Towel & Blanket Drive

For 16 years, Hornblower has offered this popular, pup-friendly Pet Day on San Diego Bay which consistently serves up a tail-wagging good time! Hornblower invites dogs to cruise for free with their owners. People board for just $25 per ticket, and guests are also encouraged to contribute a gently used blanket or towel that will warm needy animals at the Helen Woodward Animal Center.


San Diego Pet Rescue Day on the Bay

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. Pudgy little pugs, prissy Pomeranians, wise weimaraners, lovable Labradors, gargantuan great Danes all congregated with their human pets on a wonderful ... cruise. I couldn't help but crinkle my nose with cuteness! Instead of hearing the hum of small talk at the tables, they were over shot by all of the woofs, barks, A-roo's, and yips. There were three different levels of the boat that the dogs could travel on. Really fabulous views of SD harbor, another prissy and fun place to bring your pooch, and everybody seems to just be having a great time!

Thank you for making today's Hornblower Bow Wow cruise such a fun event! We discovered your dog-friendly cruises earlier this year when we attended Pet Day on the Bay. We loved it so much, when we heard about the brunch we knew we had to go! We think what you're doing is fantastic, and are happy to support you in any way we can. We are always telling people about Hornblower Cruises and what a good time we have on them. Thank you again...all of you at Hornblower Cruises are doing a wonderful job!

I absolutely love that you offer the Pet Day cruise, and I'm very excited to hear about the pet brunch in October. I plan to attend that as well. I always have the utmost regard for any establishment that goes above and beyond the norm to give pets and their owners access to events that are not your usual run-of-the mill. I have plastered my facebook page with photos of the cruise (an entire album is dedicated to it) and I have not stopped talking about the great time we had with all of your friendly and accommodating staff. And the day was beautiful to boot! You guys are awesome! My only complaint is that the Pet Day cruise only happens once a year!
