It was a well run tour and the boat was in excellent condition. The captain was well informed of the types and name of the ships that were in port that day. All the hands were helpful and friendly. They have a small snack bar on board that was nice.

This was our second time doing this cruise The staff are very friendly and the captain provides a ton of info on the boats docked in the Naval Base. We were disappointed that the air craft carrier had left the base that morning, but that is not their fault. Would recommend this cruise if you like military history. It is... More

My husband and I decided to get the combo ticket that included Nauticus. That's a lot to do in one day considering Nauticus does not open until 10am and boarding for the 11am cruise... More
