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.

When you book your tour, you are unwittingly playing a game of Russian roulette, boat edition. My family and I played and lost. Not all boats in the fleet are of the same quality. I wish I had known this when I made my reservation....More
