I really enjoyed this cruise. One hour is just the right amount of time. It was a bit breezy, so you definitely need to bring a light sweater or jacket. We had to pay for parking at the public lot across the street ($10), because there is no...continued

I was expecting a relaxing bay cruise similar to ones I've enjoyed in other larger cities - sit back, enjoy the view, have the captain explain some interesting points of interest. But this one was much more of a guided tour with nonstop chatter...continued

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.

It was good, but too much information about the ships. I would love to see more sea animals. So maybe, the whale watching tour would of been better, but it is quite more expensive. One thing for sure it was affordable and a different experience.

Our tour was cut off by the coast guard, so instead of touring the bay we sat still and watched the naval parade of ships. Interesting, but not what I paid my $12.50 for!

Perfect tour. We went on the S Bay Cruise. The captain, a former Navy man had a personal knowledge of the Navy base and ships. On our boat, the Adventurer? there are maybe a dozen tables on the open top deck (where the bar is) that afford cafe...continued

The cruise was worth $12.50 but could have been enhanced citing more local history. The guide mentioned all of the restaurants along the way but I don't think that is what people are looking for when they go on these cruises.

The cruise itself was very nice and affordable. It was a 2nd time. Good Bloody Mary's too! The weather had an impact as it was very hazy. Our guests loved it. The only negative was not being able to hear the Captain very well on the bottom level....continued

The lady who narrated the tour was dull and uninteresting. The captains voice was booming while hers lacked energy.

The ship itself was very nice and clean. The tour just didn't offer much to see. It was hard to understand the captain and what he was pointing out. So we just spend the time enjoying being out on the water instead of trying to learn anything.

1 hr is plenty of time but wish we would've taken the North bay cruise b/c the South bay is very boring and repetitive (all there is to see is Navy ships) and it wasn't very pretty to look at (too industrial).

An hour was really good, and the person giving the tour was good too. A very nice experience, and I probably even would have done this at the normal price instead of the great half off offer.
