    Although we were not lucky to see a single whale during our tour, we did get to see many, many pods of Dolphins all around us. Some of them swam next to the boat for a long distance. Our narrator was very informative and kept us informed throughout the trip. We had a great time. The most amazing thing for us, is that the company Flagship Cruises really stands behind customer satisfaction. We were all offered a FREE return ticket since we did not see any whales. Who does that in our current times? NOBODY!!
    Kudos to this company. If you are looking for something to do in San Diego, you wont do wrong by using their services, as you enjoy the great views of the San Diego harbor.

    I live in a high desert and decided to make a spontaneous trip to hang out with an ocean. The entire purpose of the trip was to be on and by the water. A whale watching excursion on a sailboat seemed like an experience I wanted to have. This was my first time on a sailboat, and my first time seeing whales. The captain was knowledgeable, and the crew was friendly and pleasant. I enjoyed my time on the America, and would recommend it to a friend.

    The instructors were fun and welcoming ! The waves were a bit rough so we didnt get to see the caves I would have appreciated getting a discount or free sticker from the store; the instructors tried to get people into the caves but the waves were so rough one couples entire kayak flipped and they got injured I think even though we paid for the caves the instructors should always not be afraid to call it if people get angry oh well and not risk themselves or others luckily no one was seriously injured. Overall the weather was amazing and it was fun to just get out in the water and have fun with a cool little history of La Jolla and San Diego would definitely want to do it again and see the caves next time!

    Perfect trip! Great boat, great crew! We saw a migrating gray whale. So much better than driving into San Diego. Highly recommend.

    The Gaslamp District Food Tour is a great way to learn more about this part of San Diego. The food tastings during the walking tour are filling, but any beverages or additions are out of pocket. You can make the most of it if you like artisan markets. We bought jewelry from local artisans before meeting up for the tour.

    Fantastic tour, the self guided nature with the listening device was really good. Listening to actual sailors on board the carrier during its tour of duty is special. Well done!

    It was an amazing night! We had a large group of 16 and we were sat at two different tables, which was disappointing because we were separated. Other than that everyone enjoyed theirselves and had a great time. Dancing hour was so much fun

    We had Ben as our tour guide and he did a great job. I particularly liked the Greek fusion restaurant and the Mexican restaurant. We also got a nice overview of old time San Diego history, and learned about the Gas Lamp quarter. Well done and definitely worth the time.

    Victor was a great guide and the hike had great views and was interesting to explore the slotted canyon area of Torrey Pines. Victor provide very helpful tips when hiking and was very knowledgeable of the surrounding area. Provide other sights of interest and options for lunch.
