Enjoying the views and the Captain’s narrations were interesting. Although I have no real interest in anything military, the history behind the ships was informatve.

Great trip. Not too long and very informative. Crew was excellent and worked the same with our smaller crowd as well as with a full boat. The experience was well worth with the expense.
Wait to buy tickets at the gate!!
, Feb 2022
Did a late booking but was on time. Was told to stand in one line for another cruise which was the wrong one went to get in line they locked the gate we couldn’t talk to anyone so we paid for the ride but didn’t do the cruise at all.

Cruising San Diego Bay
, Aug 2021
The boat ride was great. The tour guides voices over the mike was poor. Especially the male voice. It was a most relaxing trip. Weather was great for sitting outside on deck. You get a very different perspective of San Diego cruising along the bay than just walking around the city.
, Jul 2021
Everything was great!! The tour was super knowledgeable, we leaned a lot about San Diego and Navy Seals. Service was great with serving drinks and small plates. Pictures turned out amazing!!! Definitely recommend this boat tour to anyone and everyone!!!
