My boyfriend's friend gave us his Groupon deal he bought for this because he was unable to use it. We didn't know what to expect but heard it was a great time. It was pretty cloudy and a bit cooler than expected for our day out on the water but that didn't matter one bit!! Our tour guide Glen was full of energy and very knowledgable. They give you step by step instructions on how to operate the boat with ease and safety. He also handed out blankets to us all in case we got chilly on the water.....which ended up coming in handy later!
Our first stop was to see the sea lions basking in the sun. What a great site!!! They were SO fun to see so close up and so entertaining. You literally get just a few feet within the docks where they are laying.
Cruising through the bay was a blast. They advise you to have fun and tear it up around there, which we did. Good note to know - it's impossible to flip the boats so you feel safe!
We drove right by the Coronado Bridge. What a cool way to see the bridge that close in the water. Glen had some great information about the bridge's history, structure, etc. that we had never heard.
Next stop was the Maritime Museum with several ships including the USS Midway. You will never get such a great view of this amazing ship than you will on these boats. Just being so close under the bow really makes you realize just how huge it is!!!
Overall our experience was one we'd never had before. The water was a bit choppy but it made riding around that much more fun. We were lucky enough to have a wave hit us out of nowhere but it just made our trip that much more funny. We were soaked but we didn't even care. Our blanket came in handy after all! :)
I have some amazing pictures from our day so I highly advise bringing a camera. Our guide said even though he does this 4 times a day, he still wishes he had a camera with him every time.
Living in SD, you don't realize how many amazing things there are to do. A lot of people would think this would be something tourists would do, but even as a resident, it's a must!
I will highly recommend this to all of our friends to experience!!!
