Humboldt Bay Harbor Cruises

Part of the Humboldt Bay Maritime Museum, Humboldt Bay Harbor Cruises take place on the historic motor vessel, the Madaket, which has been in operation for over a century. Experience Eureka's waterway by choosing one of several types of cruises. Eco cruises head out into Arcata Bay, where passengers might see shore birds, harbor seals and oyster beds. A Narrated cruise travels along the bay's shores and includes snippets of the area's history and wildlife. A Cocktail cruise is a relaxing way to welcome the evening with an enjoyable beverage.
