On January 30, 2017, Flagship Cruises & Events (Flagship) of San Diego was one of three organizations recognized with the first ever Ultra Green Fuel Technologies 2016 Environmental Award for outstanding sustainable fuel efforts. Flagship took home an elegant crystal trophy while setting the bar high for its competitors to embrace green fuel technologies and emission reductions.

Flagship is one of many organizations who have been committed to reducing their carbon footprint through sustainable initiatives. In 2016, Flagship teamed up with Ultra Green Fuel to complete vessel maintenance and improvements within the company’s fleet. The team conducted countless tests to help identify areas to reduce soot levels from exhaust and reduce fuel consumption. With their dedication, they have made exceptional progress: overall fuel consumption reduced by about 20% and emissions from the whale watching vessel, Marietta, reduced by 58%. Flagship has implemented additional sustainable business practices by serving sustainable seafood and installing LED lighting on its docks. 

Flagship is one of 87 businesses participating in the Port’s Green Business Network. Flagship is a locally owned and operated company that offer cruise and event services including gourmet dinner and brunch cruises, harbor tours, whale watching expeditions, and ferry and water tax services.
