San Diego Zoo

We are doing a California Costal cruise in October and will be in San Diego for the day (9am-6pm). Was really hoping to do a tour of the zoo, but our ship is not offering a shore excursion for the zoo. Any ideas or suggestions on how we can see the zoo. I do not know the logistics of the area. It is possible to take a taxi from the port to the zoo, or private tours, etc. Thanks for any information.

A taxi will run you approximately $20. It is a short ride from the port.

I agree, just hop in a cab at the Cruise Terminal.

If you bring a skate board, you can skate board there it is so close (see map below).

Other wise just grab a cab.

Are you doing the Vancouver/Seattle to Pandama Canal Cruise?!?!? So awesome! We did the reverse in May 2012.

Anyways, like the others have mentioned, take a cab. And I am sure you know this, but be sure to allow plenty of time to get back in the afternoon. There will likely be people boarding for the first time and not doing a collector's cruise so it may take a while to get back on board.

We leave port in Los Angeles with stops in San Fransciso, Santa Barbara, San Diego, Ensanada, then back to LA. Thank you everyone for your reply's. They are very helpful.

The zoo is a very short 3-miles or so from the cruise port so a very quick taxi or city bus ride will get you there and back.
