Very enjoyable, interesting and pleasant Harbor cruise
Nov. 2021
This was a very enjoyable, interesting and pleasant Harbor cruise. I took the 2-hour cruise. This is actually two one-hour cruises - the "North" route and the "South" route. The ship docks between the two cruises to let passengers on and off. The boat was very smooth and pleasant. The narration was very interesting and useful. The bathroom (I can only commment on the men's room!) was clean and 'normal". They had basic refreshments for sale at reasonable prices. While I totally enjoyed both parts of the cruise, if I could only do one I would do the South route - it's a bit more interesting with all the Navy ships, Coronado bridge, etc. I would definitely do this again!

Buy the 2 hr cruise! It’s only $5 more. Kade did a great tour narration, spoke clearly and not too fast. Interesting to hear some history, see the naval ships, etc. We even saw a dolphin and sea lions and birds. Snacks and soda were reasonably priced. Do this cruise!

Superior harbor tour.
Nov. 2021
Boat tour of both South and North harbors was very good and guide very informative.

Highlight was cruise by dozens of US NAVY ships.

Only disappointment was concessions where a 6 ounce beer and a small bottle of water was priced at $11.00.

Great trip
Nov. 2021 • Couples
This cruise was well worth enjoying both the North and Southern routes as they were quite different. We got some lovely pictures of the city and shoreline snd learned much more about the town. Go on an earlier option so you beat the crowds and can get a good seat up top and bring/use sunscreen and a jacket as it can go from hot to chilly with the wind.

Such a great experience! Amazing way to see San Diego... from the water! Max was filled with loads of great tidbits of knowledge and trivia. Great drinks and times were had on the top deck while soaking in the sun and city!
