San Diego Activities at the Bahia Hotel


We’re not landlocked…we’re waterlocked!

With Mission Bay surrounding the resort and Mission Beach only a block away, we offer endless popular San Diego activities that will fill your day to the brim. Resort Watersports is located a short walking distance just west of the Marina building at the Bahia Hotel. Their outlet provides rentals for sailboats, kayaks, and paddleboards for use in Mission Bay. Guests choosing to venture into the waves of the Pacific Ocean can rent surfboards and boogie boards. Bicycles and segways are also available to cruise up and down the boardwalks of Mission Bay, Mission Beach, and Pacific Beach.

The Bahia Belle, a turn-of-the-century sternwheeler, provides complimentary cruises with nightly entertainment on Mission Bay. For those looking to stay on land, we offer an Olympic-sized swimming pool, Jacuzzi, tennis courts, shuffle board courts, and kids’ arcade.
