All Dogs on Deck! Hornblower Is Yapping It Up in Marina del Rey

Calling all dog lovers! In the mood for a doggy dream cruise? Oh it’s happening in a big way this Saturday on Hornblower’s first-ever Dogs on Deck Yappy Hour Cocktail Cruise. This is a new annual tradition that encompasses all that is right in the world— dogs, dog people, and Marina del Rey! The two-hour cruise is $55 for one person (plus friendly pooch on a leash), and totally worth it—especially because a portion of proceeds will benefit the LA Animal Service’s orphaned pets. What a worthwhile way to spend a Saturday, right?

So what exactly will be happening besides spending the afternoon with your dog on a gorgeous ship, sipping cocktails and watching the sailing races? So much. You’ll enjoy delicious complimentary appetizers, while your dog snacks the day away at the Petco-supplied doggy food & treat buffet. There will be a super cute Howl’oween Costume Contest with nifty prizes. A Dog Relief Area will be set up on the Sun Deck for a little AWWRRR & AWWRRRR. Petco’s Head Pawsitive Dog Expert will be there to share some training tips. And last but not least—Instagram sensation Geordi La Corgi will be making a guest appearance. We know, what a dog-gone amazing event!

Your dog must have an i.d. tag and current rabies tag to board—and needs be leashed at all times. Also, no teensy puppies allowed—pup partiers need to be over six months to attend.

The cruise sails from 2 pm to 4 pm on Saturday, October 20th. Register and purchase tickets soon!
