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.

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 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 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
