August , 2022

San Diego, CA – Fall is the perfect time for a getaway to San Diego’s Mission Bay, home of the Bahia Resort Hotel and Catamaran Resort Hotel and Spa, as the summer crowds diminish, sunsets glow in vibrant autumn colors, and temperatures average a pleasantly warm 74 degrees.

Guests can enjoy a cornucopia of fun-filled fall activities and events at both the Bahia and Catamaran, from hula dance lessons and lei making to outdoor movie nights and a Halloween cruise, as well as an entire month devoted to free offerings just for kids. Following is some of the top things to do at both resorts this fall.

Kids Rule!

October is Kids Free San Diego Month. From October 1-31, the Bahia and Catamaran resorts are rolling out the welcome mat for children aged 12 and under with special eat, stay, and play for free offers. Hotel guests who dine at Oceana Coastal Kitchen in the Catamaran Resort or Dockside 1953 in the Bahia Resort can enjoy a free kid’s meal for each paid adult entrée. Additionally, Action Sport Rentals at both resorts is offering a complimentary paddleboard or kayak rental with the purchase of one adult one-hour or longer paddleboard or kayak rental. Offers are limited to a maximum of two complimentary kid’s meals per visit and two complimentary paddleboard or kayak rentals per visit.

Hotel guests can enjoy more free fun on the water with complimentary kids’ tickets (one per paid adult ticket) on the historic Bahia Belle sternwheeler sightseeing cruises, departing from the Bahia and Catamaran.

Foodie Fest

The tables are set for the return of San Diego Restaurant Week, September 25-October 2. Oceana Coastal Kitchen at the Catamaran is offering a curated three-course dinner paired with stunning views of Mission Bay.
