Fodor's 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 a party that continues until the wee hours. There's always music, mostly jazz, rock, and blues, on board, and on Friday and Saturday nights the music is live. You can imbibe at the Belle's full bar, 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. Most cruises get a mixed crowd of families, couples, and singles, but cruises after 9:30 pm are adults-only.
