Since Hornblower Founder and CEO Terry MacRae purchased a small charter yacht business in 1980, the California-based company has focused on one mission: delivering premier, high-quality dining, entertainment and cruise experiences. Guests choose Hornblower Cruises & Events for vacations, weddings, corporate outings and private charters of any kind as well as for individual dining cruises and tourism excursions.
Today, the company cruises from seven California port cities and New York City. It also operates two National Park Service concessions with Alcatraz Cruises and Statue Cruises and recently began Niagara Cruises, in partnership with The Niagara Parks Commission, an Operational Enterprise Agency of the Canadian Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport.
The Knot.com users voted Hornblower their top pick for Orange County weddings and receptions in 2007 and Hornblower San Francisco received a 2006 CORY (Commercial Recycler of the Year) Award. The company and its employees have also been recognized by the California Travel Industry Association, Hospitality Sales and Marketing Association International and a number of meeting planner organizations and tourism bureaus.
