Make a Splash this Summer at the Bahia Resort and Catamaran Resort in San Diego's Mission Bay

Jun 24, 2022

This summer, escape to the sparkling shores of Mission Bay, San Diego’s 4,600-acre aquatic playground, featuring endless recreational activities and two spectacular resorts, the Bahia Resort Hotel and Catamaran Resort Hotel and Spa, that were made for memorable family-friendly getaways.

From sun up to sun down, there’s always something entertaining to do at the Catamaran Resort, where it’s “island time, all the time,” and the Bahia Resort featuring the very best of the beach.

Island Vibes

Say “Aloha!” to the Catamaran Resort, San Diego’s original Polynesian-inspired hotel, featuring a popular bayside luau that’s fun for the whole family and several island-themed activities amidst its tropical setting. Sunset Luaus on Mission Bay, June 24 through September 2, feature a delicious all-you-can-eat Hawaiian buffet, authentic island music, hula dancing, fiery torch performers, and even a volcano that erupts confetti. Guests also receive a lei and Mai Tai. New this year is Premium VIP seating close to the stage.

Continuing the island vibe, guests can enjoy a real-life, outdoor enchanted tiki room during daily Bird Shows at 3 p.m. (except on Sundays and Wednesdays), featuring Chadwick the cockatoo and his five feathered friends, including colorful talkative parrots – all Insta-worthy photo ops!

Star-Spangled Fun

Guests can let their patriotic colors fly during two dazzling fireworks displays over Fourth of July weekend. On July 3rd Discover Mission Bay presents a fireworks show at 9:00 p.m., just offshore from El Carmel Point. Bahia and Catamaran resort guests will be treated to prime views from the shoreline.
Revelers can also board the 4th of July Fireworks Cruise aboard the William D. Evans sternwheeler, boarding at 7 p.m. at Bahia and 7:45 p.m. at the Catamaran. The fireworks show begins at 8:40 p.m.

Sizzling Nightlife

When the sun sets, the fun continues well into the night at the Bahia and Catamaran resorts. A sweet way to end the day, both properties offer S’mores on the Bay with complimentary s’mores kits and hot cocoa on Wednesdays at the Catamaran and Thursdays and Sundays at the Bahia, from 7-8:30 p.m.

Smores on the Bay Catamaran Resort

The Bahia Belle After Dark Cruise, Mission Bay’s ultimate party boat, will make waves on Fridays and Saturdays, 9-11 p.m. While cruising the calm waters of the bay, guests can dance to live music and enjoy their favorite cocktails and craft brews. Partygoers must be 21 years or older. Cruises depart from the Bahia Resort on Fridays and the Catamaran Resort on Saturdays. Cost: $15 for hotel guests, $25 for non-hotel guests.
