Sternwheelers of Evans Hotels

The grand tradition of Mississippi riverboats comes to life on Mission Bay aboard Bahia Belle Cruises. Our ships, the Bahia Belle and the William D. Evans, were built to mimic an 1860s-era riverboat, down to the very last detail. The 19th century, 100-foot-long William D. Evans was launched in 1986 as a loving tribute to that era's most elegant mode of transportation. Skimming the blue-green waters of Mission Bay, the William D. Evans presents a magical setting in which to stage a truly memorable event. Equipped to handle 600 guests, she provides all the modern amenities while still maintaining an air of 19th century elegance. The Bahia Belle offers two levels of unique San Diego meeting space. The first level and second levels combine for 1844 square feet can hold 175 people for a reception and or banquet. Along with a unique meeting space, the Bahia Belle primarily offers boat cruises on the waters of Mission Bay from its sister property, The Catamaran Resort Hotel and Spa.
