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.

We did the one hour cruise, it was perfect. The crew is very friendly, and give you a tour over the loud speaker during part of the cruise. I would highly recommend!

We loved the detailed tour and highlights of San diego. Tried this
years before and was not happy, because of speaker sound system. Now, the tour sound system is upgraded and is clear and makes the whole trip just wonderful. Thank you for a...continued

Went on the tall ships Festival Sail day and it was marvelous to see the ships up close sailing into the bay. Fabulous narration by the staff member who told us so much about the region. She also knew about each tall ship.

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.

Enjoyed the cruise ! The tourist guide was pretty knowledgeable about San Diego's history, marine life and the ships which all contributed to a great experience

Great experience! It was fun to explore the boat and see all the sights. I brought my 5 and 7 year old along and they had fun too. They have snacks for kids and wine available for purchase too. We saw sea lions, Coronado, the Subbase, downtown,...continued

I purchased the 1 hour harbor cruise the night before we attended, was concerned with it being such short notice that the reservations might experience a bit of a hiccup. To my pleasure all went perfectly! Checked in, received tickets, boarded and...continued

I took 3 of my granddaughters who were visiting from out of state. We had a great time. The weather was PERFECT...warm and sunny (not too hot). I would definitely recommend the one hour north bay cruise...it was just long enough.

I took my neice who is 5 and she loved it too, although I wouldn't recommend bringing children. I learned so much about the history of the bay and I live here! It was a gorgeous day and would highly recommend it.

It was a beautiful cloudless SD 70 degree day in February. We took the one-hour tour, which was just enough time to see the skyline and harbor. We took the north tour - next time we'll take the south tour to by Coronado. The tour guide was very...continued
