Educate our community
At Hornblower San Diego, we aim to educate our visitors and community about local
environmental projects. Our Green Harbor Tours in San Diego teach passenger’s about
the Port of San Diego’s environmental efforts as well as promoting top attractions
on the Bay.
At Alcatraz Cruises, we promote environmental awareness and encourage others to “buy
green” by taking an active role in our community. Our Environmental Days program
in San Francisco
invites local green businesses to spend a day with us at Alcatraz Landing to showcase
and promote their eco-friendly goods and services to visitors. Through our community involvement, Hornblower helps
everyday people make everyday green decisions.
Educate our children
Respect Our Planet offers Educational Bay Cruises to school groups in the San Francisco Bay Area. These cruises
are designed to showcase the unique environment of the bay and wetlands, encourage
the conservation of natural resources and teach the importance of boat safety.
