The SEAL Tour was an enjoyable way to see the harbor. The driver and guide did a wonderful job of telling us about the harbor. He knew about all of the Navy craft that we saw. They were also able to get us near some sea lions without disturbing them. I did get much cooler on the water than it... More

I was with my family during this trip. They have enjoyed the whole trip, especially when it comes to water. The guide was very professional and knowledgeable. The tour starts from seaport village and ending there. Passing to water from Shelter island to see all the sea lions while sunbathing.

Our tour guide made the trip really fun. He took the trouble to ask each and every one of us where we came from and made reference to that during the trip. He was quite an extrovert and kept us entertained whilst at the same time providing us with in depth information about San Diego and the area.

My wife and I enjoyed the Seal Tour leaving from Seaport Village. Was a rainy day but still enjoyed the driving part. The highlight was in the water. Tour Guides were great.

We took advantage of the $10 savings by doing both this tour combined with the Trolley Tour. This blue bus was a lot of fun. It was approx 90 min long. Our tour guide gave nice history about the San Diego area then the bus turns into a boat and you float right on into the bay. The best part... More

Our tour guides were fun and informative. We highly recommend this tour, especially on the first day when visiting the city. We learned about... More

In San Diego for a business trip but the family came to enjoy a little of San Diego also, stop by and did one of these tours! Kids had a good time, got to see a lot of the harbor. Fun little tour, and nice to be out in the sun instead of a conference room!
