The cruise itself (the ship, the Hornblower staff, etc) was great, but you have to really like Navy ships to thoroughly enjoy this event. The one hour cruise would have been enough.

The cruise was nice and there were quite a few ships in the harbor which made it nice. I would suggest a one hour tour, because if you do the two hour you come back in to drop people off and pick others up so your not even doing the straight two...continued

The event it just as described. Nice couple hours out on the water, get to see a lot of the San Diego coast from a different perspective. The south tour has a lot more of the Navy ships along with Coronado. The north tour is more of the city...continued

The first hour goes North out by Pt. Loma. You see sea life, Shelter Island, subs and North Island aircraft. Perfect amount of time. Perfectly narrated. Then second half of the cruise would only appeal to people who are fascinated with every kind...continued

The full cruise was very enjoyable & informative. We're San Diegan's but had a friend from Italy visiting and it was a great way to orient him to our beautiful city. He loved the cruise & the two hours were relaxing and went very quickly.

the ship captain did a fantastic narration during the 1st hour when we went around the South Bay... then less narration during the North side around Point Loma. I was expecting lots of people on the cruise but was not crowded at all. Make sure to...continued

The ship was very smooth cruising through the bay and no one became motion sick.
The beautiful San Diego Bay was a pleasure to see from the water.

The only downside was the constant tourguide chatter from the captain... however, people from...continued

The tour hour cruise was really fun, despite the weather. I liked the North Bay tour the best, although the tour guide was a lot better on the South Bay.

This is a great way to see lots of ships in the south bay which you wouldn't see from land. We enjoyed the entire trip even though the weather was not our usual sunny San Diego.

This is a great way to get an overall view of San Diego and surrounding areas----especially if you have never been. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the cruise and learned quite a bit via the narration. Definitely bring a sweater or light...continued

This was a fun way to see San Diego. The water was calm and the weather was beautiful. Be sure to bring a light jacket and you might also like to bring a hat if it's sunny. The Captain's narration was informative and humorous. It was well worth...continued

This was a nice variance to what I normally do in San Diego. We had a beautiful day although temperatures varied on the boat. We departed towards the southern portion at 11:15 am. At the latter time the temperature on board was good. Half way...continued

This was a great outing on the San Diego Bay. There was a running narrative regarding many of the naval ships and other historical sites. We had a great time and intend to bring family and friends next time. Also, they do sell craft beers on...continued
