Great tour

I decided to do this on my own while waiting on my wife who was at a conference nearby.

I’m glad I did, it was great fun, the tour guide was a hoot, I can’t remember his name but he was an older gentleman with a full white beard and he certainly added to the tour.

It was very interesting with some of it on land and then into the water and back to land with the guide giving interesting commentary along the way.
We saw some sea lions and I generally had a great time.
I would say it takes around 90 minutes and I would definitely recommend it.

I went on this tour on my 2nd day of my holiday and really did enjoy the tour . It felt very short but 90 mins do go past quick when your having so much fun . The only draw back is on the day I went . It was pretty windy and I had problems trying to catch my breath I asked the tour guide to slow down but he told me we have to drive at the speed limit . Maybe because I look very young but what happens if I was a older guy with breathing problems? I think this company need to address this problem by putting a plastic roof cover while on the road while traveling.

Hal and Diego were great as captain and narrator. Plenty of marine mammals/birds during the water portion and very informative land part. We had a drone flying all around us and unfortunately for it, it is now resting on the bottom of the bay as it dipped into the water and couldn't recover. Highlight of the cruise for some of the folks.

An enjoyable 90 minute trip from Seaport village to Mission Bay park. Saw some sea lions and learned more about the history of San Diego.

My fiance and I went on the SEAL tour and we loved it. Gorgeous scenery and a thrill to be on an open air bus that becomes a boat when it enters Mission Bay. Our Captain and the First Mate were friendly and knowledgeable and really enhanced the experience. If you are visiting San Diego, don't miss this attraction.

While staying in San Diego with my family I wanted to do something fun and out of the ordinary and when i came across the San Diego Seal Tours I thought that would work. It ended up being a neat experience for my 2 year old, she loved going from land to water! We were able to see plenty of seals and even lucky enough to see some training being conducted on the water by the US Navy mammal program (the tour guide said that usually doesn't happen). In addition to the great scenery the tour guide was very knowledgeable about the city and it's history which was nice for the adults on the tour. Overall it was a great experience. I actually traveled in September 2017 but completely forgot to leave my review.

A fairly boring experience. The only wildlife we saw were lying on a pier in Mission Bay. I was hoping for history of the city and views of the city but there wasn't much of this. I'd say this was average at best.
