The undisputed leader in waterfront cruises and tours in Los Angeles is Spirit Cruises. But it's more than just recreational cruises.

It operates four different yachts, each with a distinct style, to serve nearly every need or interest.

Its harbor cruises are fun and the whole family will love them.

But there's something for everyone with Spirit, both business and pleasure.

The 65-foot Pacific Spirit will accommodate up to 75 guests; the 90-foot Sailing Ship Spirit can welcome up to 80; the 90-foot Motor Yacht Spirit can handle up to 140 passengers; and the 100-foot Endeavor can accommodate up to 275 guests.

Spirit is probably best known for its daily harbor cruises that offer an up-close look at the big ships of facilities of the Port of Los Angeles. These informative tours depart from Ports O’ Call Village.

The one-hour tour highlights more than 50 points of interest in the harbor, including the Vincent Thomas Bridge, Main Channel, and massive China Shipping Terminal.

You’ll see the Love Boat Cruise Ship Terminal, fire boat station, and onward to little-seen sites in the far reaches of the waterfront and Terminal Island.

The cruises always see sea lions and many other types of sea life up close and in their environment.

Spirit also offers the only harbor cruise in Long Beach that goes past the Queen Mary all the way around Pier J and the fascinating commerce that goes on there. The Long Beach cruises depart from Shoreline Village.

For a real look at both of the great ports, Spirit offers the one and one-half hour World Port Cruise that shows more than 100 points of interest in both Los Angeles and Long Beach Harbors.

And the two-hour Super Circle Cruise available on select weekends during the spring and summer shows off more than 150 points of interest. It is a very complete tour of the busiest harbors in the nation.

And with the line-up of vessels it has available available, Spirit is also a leading charter and party boat company. Its team has put together packages that make the process of planning and booking easy—along with ensuring tasty and attractive meals on board for lunch, dinner, and cocktail events.
