This is an excellent activity to have on the weekend. It doesn't take up your whole day but it's still an "event". Even for a long time resident like myself, it's a great way to have another view of my city.

We have been on this cruise several times over the years and it is a relaxing way to spend an hour on the bay. We bring our visitors here to show off our beautiful city.

Weather was perfect with lots of sun, use sunscreen and bring a cap or sun visor. Very informative narrative about San Diego's history.

What a relaxing time, and the narrator was very informative, fun, as was the rest of the staff. This was my second time, and I'll do it again. Goldstar is the BEST! A great way to experience the San Diego Bay even if you are NOT a tourist.

I enjoyed the tour. It was informative and I was able to see a very beautiful sunset. It was a bit cold. I would've prefered to do brunch or dinner. I had no problem retreiving our tickets the staff was very friendly.

It was a long commercial for businesses in San Diego and very corny. Very few educational points and nothing regarding the natural beauty of our great city. Could barely see the sea lions.
