This Memorial Day Weekend, Coronado welcomes back all-encompassing adventure journeys around town with Island Tours by Coronado Beach Company. The 50-minute tours are non-stop, roundtrip and depart from the Coronado Ferry Landing, the Coronado Museum of History & Arts (Visitor Center) and Glorietta Bay Inn.

Ticket price per guest is $25. Seniors, students, teachers, nurses, military and residents receive a $5 discount at all times. Tour guests benefit from seeing all of Coronado Beach in under an hour - making it easy to plan their entire stay and their return visits.

Island Tour highlights include: Central Beach, Orange Avenue shops, Hotel del Coronado, public artworks, Navy SEALs Amphibious Base, Silver Strand scenic highway, Wizard of Oz home, Dog Beach, Naval Air Station North Island, Ocean Boulevard, Glorietta Bay Inn, historic homes and award-winning gardens.

Each tour is fully-narrated by a Coronado Ambassador guide who provides insider info on where to shop, dine and play along with some haunted hotel ghostly tales and the true story behind the wreck of the Monte Carlo gambling ship on Coronado Beach.

Guest will cruise around Coronado aboard the super-comfortable Islander Beach Wagon with its leather seating and huge picture-perfect sightseeing windows. And with the intimate setting of only eight guests per tour - all questions are easily addressed.

On Saturday, May 25, 2019, the Island Tours inaugural Summer Season begins with daily Tours departing from these support partner/boarding locations:

Coronado Ferry Landing: 9:40 a.m., 10:40 a.m., 11:40 a.m., and 12:40 p.m.

Guests touring from Glorietta Bay Inn get to view the Inn’s historic Music Room and Lobby.

Coronado Beach Company was originally established in 1886 by the town’s planners as they mapped-out the community around the Hotel del Coronado. The Company was re-established in 2019 as a non-profit cooperative consisting of Coronado residents and business owners dedicated to bringing Coronado’s important history and inspiring cultural arts to life through tours, films and interactive experiences.
