I took my family of 8 on the 2-hour Harbor Excursion last Saturday. Even though we are all long time San Diego locals, this is a great little escape. It has super views, almost always sunny skies, the ocean breezes, and the wonderful narration...continued

I took out of town guests and we enjoyed it. It gives a great overview of San Diego Bay. The National City shipyards were very impressive with all the ships in dock. I didn't realize the 2 hour included returning to the dock and loading up more...continued

I took the 2-hour cruise. It was a nice relaxing afternoon to just cruise around the water, take in the sun and sip on some beer. It was something fun and different to do with my boyfriend and I would definitely do it again. I really think the...continued

I was dissappointed that after an hour, passengers were left off and it was the same cruise again. I would have rather it been a full 2 hours without stopping and repeating.

I wasn't sure if my husband would enjoy his first visit to San Diego, so I signed us up for the two hour cruise. In 24 year I have never heard him give such nice comments about something I have booked and we have attended.

The captain and his...continued

I won't recommend this tour to anyone.
Narration was very limited.. "there's a helicopter launch Navy boat" but no fun facts or further information. Most of the tour was silent. The shameless begging for tips at the end was ridiculous, why would I...continued

It was just lovely! The San Diego Harbor is breathtaking....The only thing I would have changed is not having to come back into dock before beginning the 2nd hour. It was relaxing and a beautiful way to spend an afternoon....If you've never done...continued
