Relaxed, informative, entertaining
Jul 2021
Two hour harbor cruise on a pretty day. Lots of fun and an excellent tour guide who was knowledgeable and humorous. Bar open, all fun. Be aware: entry is a little chaotic. There are no reserved seats so it's everyone for himself. Best to arrive early. We were surprised when the boat returned to the dock after an hour to pick up more passengers for the second hour, but overall a very relaxed, informative and entertaining activity.

Disappointed
Jul 2021 • Couples
Very disappointed. There was so much wonderful information given by Cade our tour guide, but I could barely hear it. Many people used the boat as a party venue and were talking very loudly, such that our enjoyment was spoiled.

Horrible, never again!!!!!!
Jul 2021 • Family
They load you up in there like ants.. No message about safety or what to do if things go wrong.. If you are lucky to get a seat then you sit if not.. So be it. We were in the middle of the line so we were stuck in chairs in the middle of the second deck. Cannot see anything… speakers were only working for the upper deck so we could not hear what the guide was saying. Very disappointing and amateur business…

Wonderful 2 hour tour
Jul 2021
What a wonderful time! We were delightfully surprised that this tour was so enjoyable and relaxing. I thought my teens may be bored, but they sure loved it. We were on the upper deck and the host/announcer was so funny and the whole crew was very personable, even offering to take family pics for us. They even take a professional pic as you board and have it ready for you to purchase as you disembark. And, let's not forget that you can even buy a Groupon/Living Social discount for the tours online. It's an incredible deal and you can also purchase snacks on the boat.

Great tour
Jul 2021 • Couples
We enjoyed the entire tour from start to finish. The Captain was informative, funny and knowledgeable of San Diego bay history. We're locals and decided on a staycation this year and this had been on our bucket list of things to do, so happy we did! We would recommend this trip around the bay.

GOOD times and will do it AGAIN when the 2 hour tours are available.
I had a good time. My sister and I met some very interesting people. I would have liked to have taken the 2 hour tour; but I was BAMBOOZLED into taking this tour. Please make sure there is NO false advertising next time. Other than that, I had a GREAT time.

A fun cruise for all ages
Jul 2021
My husband and I went on the two hour North and South Harbor cruise with my 90 year old father. We had an excellent time on the ship called the Spirit of San Diego. Cade was our guide and narrated the tour pointing out sights and the history behind them. My dad uses a walker to steady himself, so we were prepared to spend our time down inside the main level, but he decided to try (with our help) the 12 steps up to the second level and we spent the 2nd hour up there where you can walk outside to view the sights as well. The entire Crew was friendly and helpful. We parked close by in the parking lot for the USS Midway Museum ($10 for the day).
