So relaxing, informative.....5 stars! Couldn't have had a more perfect day. Glad we took jackets, as it was windy and colder than it looked.

The 2 hour tour was great. You do have to go back to port after half of the tour to pick us people and let people off before finishing the tour. It was very informative and we learned a lot about the area. We really enjoyed being up close to...continued

The 2-hour cruise took us to both the North and South ends of San Diego bay. The captain narrated the tours just enough - interesting facts about the city and the bay, without being tedious. The on-ship snack bar was a nice addition. You had a...continued

The captain narrator's commentary along the way made the cruise enjoyable and interesting for this first timer.

The Captain Jose could not be heard. He was loud enough but dropped his voice mid sentence.
Also, the southbay portion was cut short from my previous cruises with you and we did not get o Point loma on the the northbound portion.

The check in person was very helpful. We took the 10 a.m. cruise for 2 hours. There were very few passengers at that time, and I would highly recommend it, unless there is morning fog. The boat was very clean and the narration was very...continued

The cruise was disappointing because the watercraft provided for it was totally inappropriate given the nature of the event. There was essentially no outdoor seating and seating of any kind was inadequate. Compared to other ships in the Hornblower...continued

The cruise itself was lovely and informational. Bartender Lance was the BEST! I think it would have been appropriate for Hornblower to notify all potential passengers that this is the one day a year that Petco sponsors BRING YOUR DOG ON A CRUISE...continued

The cruise was nice, although we had a hard time hearing the tour guide over the loudspeaker so we felt like we missed out on a lot of good information.

The cruise was great, you get a narrative of San Diego with interesting facts. The crew was very nice and helpful. I went with a baby and a toddler, plus my brother had M.S., and we were able to make it to the second deck with the help of the...continued

The harbor cruise was great! As we left the harbor, one of the aircraft carriers also was departing and it was a sight to behold. Everyone on the cruise was in awe. An added treat was the marine life.

Also, the crew members were...continued

The narration was interesting, and provided a nice overview of the San Diego Bay area. We had great seats on the top deck and the views were incredible. The cruise was divided in the middle, with a 15-minute break to allow some guests to get off...continued

The only thing I didn't care for was the fact that we had to return to shore and let the people off that were on the one hour cruise. We felt cheated for the time lost. The captain was selling his night cruise a little too much.

The price was very reasonable and the tour guide or Captain was very informative which made the cruise more interesting. My nephew was on vacation here from Chicago and we were able to relax and enjoy the cruise while spending time together.

The San Diego Harbor is the lifeblood of the City. This cruise is a must not just for tourists -- but for everyone who is interested in learning about the role the harbor plays in the city's history and economy.
