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.

I have lived in San Diego my entire life and learned new interesting facts about San Diego via this harbor cruise. Informative and relaxing.

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 itself was fine- nice view, plus since it was late afternoon we were on the water a bit before sunset. There is outdoor and indoor seating available.
What I was disappointed about was the late departure of the voyage, and they did not...continued

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
