Create an itinerary including San Diego Bay Walk
Take an easy walk that winds through downtown and the city's waterfront area along San Diego Bay Walk. The scenic stroll offers a taste of the city's mix of stunning nature and urban edge. Begin a self-guided tour of the bay at Broadway Pier (where you can also stock up on gifts at the souvenir shops). Head north to find the terminal where most cruise ships launch, surrounded by fish shops and restaurants. Here, consider taking a tour of the Star of India, a mast ship from 1863. Heading south from Broadway Pier, you come across Navy Pier, where Navy ships often dock and welcome visitors on free tours.

  • Stroll along and admire all the boats and ships, and tour the USS Midway Museum. Great location. Go visit Little Italy afterwards, a few blocks away.

  • San Diego airport was noise polluted. Greyhound terminal area had lots of homeless looking guys. I hated this walk as it reflected on the shabbiest of SD.

  • We love spending time in this area each time we visit San Diego. Along the bay is a beautiful walk and there is much to do. We have taken the ferry at Broadway Pier across the bay to Coronado...

  • One of the best tour in San Diego is by boat in the bay area. Fantastic!
  • Visiting a relative who lives on San Diego Bay off Bessamer Path. Enjoying my “room w a view.” A beautiful place! ♥️♥️♥️
  • Lovely walk and boat rides . If you catch it right in the day you can see the navy seals training
  • If you can take a harbor tour of the bay, do it. It's really cool to see the naval ships and hear the commentary about the history and facts about the ships. It's nice to see Coronado from the water, as well. My suggestion is to go in the morning and wear sunscreen and a hat too! It was a cool experience overall.
  • The maritime museum is fun and the Berkeley's top deck brings you to a time in history that you can just sit there and imagine yourself there a hundred years ago
