Bahia Belle Review
At the dock of the Bahia Resort Hotel, on the eastern shores of West Mission Bay Drive, you can board this restored stern-wheeler for a sunset cruise of the bay and party until the wee hours. There's always music, mostly jazz, rock, and blues, and on Friday and Saturday nights the music is live. You can imbibe at the Belle's full bar, which opens at 9:30 pm, but many revelers like to disembark at the Bahia's sister hotel, the Catamaran Resort, and have a few rounds before reboarding (the boat cruises between the two hotels, which co-own it, stopping to pick up passengers every half hour). Crusies after 9:30 pm are adults-only, but most cruises get a mixed crowd of families, couples, and singles.
