SeaWorld Howl-O-Scream

Sep 17 - Oct 31, 2021

There’s a new terror in town, and it’s got a killer smile. For the first time ever, Howl-O-Scream has arrived to transform the peaceful SeaWorld San Diego park you once knew into something sinister. When night falls and a carnival of horrifying creatures surrounds you, just try to put on a happy face.

Evade angry haunts as they rampage through scare zones. Seek shelter indoors, only to find you’ve entered a house of horrors. Quench your thirst for fear with fiendishly delicious cocktails, beer, and spirits. Feel the monstrous electricity of a live show. And deepen the thrills with a nighttime coaster ride.

Above all, try to resist the eyes of evil that threaten to follow you everywhere. Face your fears during SeaWorld San Diego’s Howl-O-Scream this fall. Happening select nights September 17 - October 31.

$10 Historic Bay Cruise w/general admission!

Jun 10 - ongoing

Launched in 1914 to her removal from regular service in 1996, Pilot enjoyed an active career as San Diego’s chief pilot craft – assisting almost every one of the thousands of major commercial ships to enter or leave the bay during that time. Restored by the Maritime Museum of San Diego and relaunched in 2002, Pilot provides visitors with an educational tour of our Bay. The 45-minute Bay sightseeing tour takes guests out on the water in a large loop first heading toward North Island and the Aircraft Carriers, then stopping at buoy 22. Guests will then head just under Coronado Bridge and make a port (left) turn around one of the bridge pillars. The vessels then heads back towards the Maritime Museum along the downtown side of the waterfront.  Several attractions will be highlighted along the way as guests enjoy the fresh air and view.

$15 Swift Boat Naval History Tour w/Admission!

May 29 - ongoing

Only $15 for this exciting and educational Maritime Museum Swift Boat Tour. Ride the only active passenger carrying Swift Boat in the country. Feel the power of the twin 12 cylinder 2-stroke Detroit Diesels as you take a behind the scenes 75 minute narrated tour of San Diego's military history. 

Weekends only. 12:15, 2:15 pm

Swift Boat Veterans have assisted crew, guided visitors on tours, supported the ship maintenance staff, and generated funds to keep the PCF 816 Swift Boat in tip-top condition. They are a passionate force that can be counted on now just as they were in the past when Swift crews patrolled the waterways.

Tour route heads under Coronado Bay Bridge, Naval Base San Diego, and then Naval Amphibious Base. PCF 816 then heads back by the aircraft carrier basin and Naval Air Station North Island before returning to the Museum.
