The scenery is beautiful and the ride is relaxing. It's grat for couples! I went with my husband and had a good time, just be sure to make dinner plans after because they only offer snacks at not so reasonable prices. Overall, it was a good...continued

The second hour was boring except for watching the sea lions. I was dissapointed that we did not get any information about The Star of India. However it was a beautiful San Diego day and we enjoyed a family outting.

The tour was good, but it was a bit too informational for a local. The guide didnt stop talking the whole trip. I thought it was going to be a bit more romantic.

The tour was informative and the crew was very helpful. The day was a success for us and our grandaughters who are six.

The trip was fun and enjoyable. The boat we thought we would be taking was not available due to private party. We were given an older boat similar to the Berkley, which was acceptable.

The two hour cruise was more like an 1 1/2 hrs, with the rest of the time sitting at the dock. I enjoyed what we saw, the problem was that after touring the north side we docked, loaded another group and then did the south side. The boat we werre...continued

The two hour cruise is a wonderful way to see the beauty of San Diego from the water. We thoroughly enjoyed seeing the military ships as well. Our special treat was watching some Coast Guard and Naval maneuvers that were taking place!

The two-hour cruise was awesome. The smell of the water, the breeze, the view, all of it - just breathtaking. Thank you!!!

The venue was difficult to locate and there was no information about where exactly it was on the boardwalk. The phone number listed for the event was a recording and I was unable to speak to a live person to get help.
The boat wasn't as nice as I...continued

The weather was great, a little chilly for some. With the inside seating areas it still was fine for everyone's enjoyment. All locations on the ship were good for viewing the surrounding and sites. The only part that may be a little tricky was...continued

This 2 hour Hornblower Cruise experience was awful! Huge, overcrowded ship with limited seating on the upper deck without any sun protection! Lower decks had no air, it was impossible to sit for longer then 5 minutes. The most frustrating part was...continued

This cruise was so much fun mainly because the weather was perfect (warm enough and with a nice breeze), the guide was hilarious when describing the sites, and the boat was not crowded (go on a weekday if you can!).
Wear sunblock and a hat, and...continued

This event reminded me of the amazing city that I live in. I seem to get caught up in the daily grind and forget about all that San Diego has to offer. The tour was very informative and enjoyable. I recommend going on a Sunday, early. Meter...continued

This is my second harbor cruise and I enjoyed it as much this time as the first. We took our out of town family and it was one of the highlights of their trip. While we didn't end up needing our jackets, it's a good idea to bring a windbreaker,...continued

This is the worst possible cruise you can ever be on! The captain was some ex-navy guy who kept reeling out Navy data rather than about the sights... He would say something and laught... We then understood it was a joke :) We were enlightened with...continued

This was a relaxing way to spend a couple of hours, see San Diego from a different perspective and learn about the SD Bay. The staff members on the boat were accomodating, and provided an interesting, at times gently witty, commentary. I enjoyed...continued
