We booked a 2-hour harbor cruise because my stepfather wanted to show us where he used to be stationed in the Navy. The tour was fairly comprehensive and interesting, but the guide speaking over the ship’s speakers, whose name was Kade, made several inappropriate comments...More

No matter how much of San Diego you've seen, you haven't really seen it until you've seen it from the water. This company offers a variety of ways to view the Navy base and the city. We took the full harbor cruise (both "north" and...More

Thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The team was knowledgeable, helpful, accommodating, funny, patient and kind. I especially liked the fact that we had volunteers from the local Aquarium on board who explained a lot and answered all the questions the cruise participants had. Got to see...More

Took the ferry to Coronado, fun way to get there not to mention avoid the traffic. Kids really thought it was fun. Also affordable. Recommend!

We opted for the two hour covering the north and south harbours. The sunny day enhanced the experience with a guide who provided great detail on the sites, history and the naval installations including the function of the many ships in dock.

We chose this company because an expert from Birch Aquarium accompanies each trip. We were not disappointed. The captain found a place where whales were abundant and we saw them slapping the water to stun fish, which they then ate. We saw flukes, and once...More

Glad we booked the 2-hour rather than the 1-hour. The cruise met our expectations - the boat was clean and appeared to be in good working order, drinks are available for purchase on board, and the guide was knowledgeable.

I believe you can do as many tours in one day as you like, but you cannot repeat a tour/museum. Hope you have fun!
