Great tour of marina
Nov 2021 • Family
This was fun and informative. Easy to get tickets online and pick up/drop off is in heart of Seaport Village. We saw so many dolphins and sea lions and learned a lot about Naval and Coast Guard operations in San Diego. Great way to spend a morning with knowledgeable guide.

A Unique Tour
Nov 2021
This is the first time I have ridden straight from the city streets into the water. The tour guides were excellent! Thank you Captain Fozii and First Mate Amy. They were knowledgeable about all of the activity going on in the bay around us, pointing out the different military aircraft in the air above us and the wildlife beside us. We not only spotted a multitude of sea lions, but were able to see the dolphins being trained by the Navy. It was a great tour. The first mate was even taking pictures of the passengers by the bus/boat prior to embarking for free.

Great experience
The experience was excellent. Our captain Fozii and first mate Mermaid were very energetic, and they really enhanced the experience. They were providing us with a lot of great information and knowledge, and we had the amazing luck that a aircraft carrier was disembarking port as we were in the water, So we got a close-up view and it was amazing.

Should have books a harbor tour
Oct 2021
Unfortunately this was not the tour we expected. Only about 15 minutes on land to get to the water then we just floated around on the water doing not much of anything. There was no narration on the water. We circled the sea lions and that was supposed to be the highlight. I think for us we have done several of these type of tours with Ride the Duck. We compared theirs to this one.. Covid protocols were not followed, guests on board talked through the guides talk, photos held up to tie into placed being discussed could not be seen in the back of the bus.

Fun on land and water!!!
We had a great time on this tour! The kids loved it the bus went into water. Our tour was lucky enough to see a pod of wild dolphins and the navy transporting and training their dolphins! Such a great experience. Our captain was Eric and firstmate was Rose. They both did an excellent job!!!

Very Fun Amphibious Tour of San Diego Bay!
Oct 2021
Our Captain was Fozii and our First Mate was Bret. What a great team! Both were very entertaining, but Bret was absolutely hilarious with his ironic humor and silly jokes. He was also great with the "young mariners" on the trip, bringing them up to meet the captain and pose for pictures using their parents' cell phones. It was delightful! Additionally he delivered some relevant marine biology lessons, explaining how the US Navy trains sea lions and dolphins to hunt and mark malevolent divers and unexploded torpedos. So interesting! He also gave very funny biology lessons about abalone and kelp. I highly recommend this tour!
