Great thing to do for the price. We had a lovely tour and they had onboard drinks which you can purchase. The cruise is beside the USS Midway and we actually went to both, made a day of it!

The cruise was filled with tourist it was an older boat that was very smelly and dirty. The crew was very friendly and polite. The Captain was very knowledgeable about San Diego we learned many new things about the Bay. Do not pay full price...continued

I went with my 13 year old granddaughter to show her some of the beauty and sites of San Diego for the hour North cruise. The positive side was that you could see the downtown coast from a distance, Unfortunately the inside windows were not clear,...continued

I thought Hornblower was a higher Class boat, this looked like a fishing boat, not what I usually expect from Hornblower

We opted to do this rather than the Seal Tour on the amphibious vehicle and boy, are we glad we did!!! This was on a real big ship and not on something the size of a school bus. It was well worth the discounted price. We had a great time.

Nothing fancy, but a lovely way to watch the sunset over the harbor. I would think it was only okay to have gone at any other point in the day, but the early evening was perfect. Having a beer and watching the sunset was a great way to spend an...continued

Our family needed a break from walking, walking, walking, and the 2 hour cruise was exactly what we needed to unwind. It was informative and relaxing. True, not the most exciting harbor in the world but still with nice scenery and the...continued

We took the North cruise & really enjoyed it. The narrator was very knowledgeable & we saw a wide variety of things. Sit on the right side for the best view.
