Top notch! A large school group was not interested and prevented many unable to hear the excellent narrative.

We toured the Naval base first, then went on the Victory Rover. It was such an interesting cruise – the captain was extremely knowledgeable and narrated almost the entire time. We learned much more on this cruise then on the Naval base tour.

Clean, comfortable ship; courteous and efficient staff, AMAZING Tour Guide. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the city, the navy, historical events. Bonus was the amount of aircraft activity you got to see from the Naval Air Base. Highly recommended.

Our group wanted to see as many ships as possible and get high quality, in-depth information. We were thrilled with our excursion, from the 8-year-olds through my naval expert adult son. We saw dozens of ships, enjoyed clear knowledgeable commentary, and passed closely to several...More

If I remember correctly, I called ahead and purchased the tickets before I arrived. July is prime tourist season and the boat probably holds 100 people, so I would recommend buying the tickets before you arrive.
