    What to Expect
    Make your way to the pier at 1066 N.Harbor Drive at least 15 minutes before your cruise's departure time; multiple departure times are available to fit your schedule. Step aboard the ship and make yourself comfortable for the ride, which spans two hours and passes many local points of interest. 

    Listen to insightful commentary from your guide as you pass landmarks such as the Cabrillo National Monument, the U.S. Naval Fleet and Submarine Base, Shelter Island, Harbor Island, and Point Loma. You'll likely see some California sea lions along the way. 

    Step up to the onboard snack bar to purchase some hot or cold items while you cruise. Return to the pier after 2 hours.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our harbor cruise, especially the navy vessel portion., Our narrator seemed to know every ship intimately and his level of detail was amazing - but never boring. We really learned a lot! On the second part of the tour we were lucky to see sea lions, and had

    There are two cruises: one that goes on the north half of the bay and one on the south. We started on the north side and saw a handful of sea lions on a dock for less than 5 minutes on the total 1-hour cruise so calling it a sea lion adventure is a joke. It can be a bit breezy

    Two hours well spent, nice, informative and enjoyable. The captain’s narrative on the navy vessels berthed on the San Diego jetty was excellent. Also lucky to see some lazy sea lions!!!
