If you are into exploring the unknown the 2 hour cruise is worth. The cruise conductor was knowledgeable of San Diego's history and added humor to the tour as well. I found the South side to be much more entertaining than the North side. It's...continued

It was a beautiful day, and there was a lot to see on the tour. The commentary was interesting, but the guides knew how to be quiet every now and again so that we could just enjoy the scenery. I will definitely take out-of-town guests on this tour...continued

The day was beautiful and the weather perfect, what more can you ask for? The first part of the cruise was the best. The Captain was the MC and he injected liberal amounts of humor to his narration. He made sure we knew where to look to get the...continued

$11.50 + $3.50 = 1 sweet deal. People at the window in front of me paid $23 which is still worth it.

I like both equally - the north and south. The South was great to see the military might and the north was cool to see the sea lions up...continued

Hornblower Cruises has a few problems to deal with. The two hour cruise has a stop in the middle that I knew about from your description - but the tour guide doing the narration changed during this stop as well. Steven took over and was so loud...continued

Overall it was ok. If you have some time to kill, it's not bad. The seating and tables are pretty shabby, but the overall cruise is relaxing. We purchased the 2 hour tour, but hopped off after one hour. Not into the water, but when they docked...continued

This was a fun, enjoyable event for us. We took the two hour cruise and it passed by so quickly.
We were given lots of information about the ships docked there; the Navy's role in the bay; the story about the Coronado Bridge as we passed...continued

We had debated about whether to go on this cruise or the whale-watching cruise. We ended up choosing this cruise in the end and a good thing we did! The whale-watching cruise was canceled the day we went due to overly choppy seas since they go...continued

Well worth the Goldstar price. Perfect weather. Enough seating for all & excellent audio guide of the naval & neighborhood sites we passed. I'm glad we did the 2 hour, south & north bay cruise. Longer would be too much but this was a great way to...continued

The two hour harbour cruise was great! We went on a day when it was fairly cold and windy and still had a blast. There was inside seating with windows that gave a good view and the decks weren't too packed on a day like that. We saw dolphins...continued

Because there were several boats leaving around the same time, picking up the tickets involved long lines which were completely disorganized. There must be a better way to handle this! Very nice cruise which was well narrated i.e. not too much...continued
