We’ve done numerous boat tours. This one was very relaxing. Nice Boat. Nice crew. We did the 2 hour tour. We boarded for the south, stayed on board while the they docked again to pick up people for the north. Some of the material was redundant, so if we had to do it again, we would probably just choose the South tour. Great views Coronado bridge & lot of info on Navy ships.

We opted for the two hour cruise, going to the south first and then north. The boat returns to the dock for 15 minutes in between, and if you are interested in only one end of the harbor, my family would recommend the south harbor. We are not a military family but we found the descriptions of the large vessels to be quite interesting as we cruised by them. We also skirted Coronado Island and heard about its history. The views of downtown SD were gorgeous. There are snacks for sale and a nice bar onboard. Staff are enthusiastic and friendly. Most of the good stuff is on the starboard (right) side of the boat. We sat outside at the bow and that was a pretty good vantage point though not particularly popular.

My wife and bought tickets on line and got the big discount on top of my military discount, thus saving $9. We (read I) wanted to see the pacific fleet so we chose the two hour harbor cruise for only five dollars more. Very informative, wonderful views on a very stable boat. It was a very nice day and the tour guide gave a very informative packed running dialogue throughout the voyage. We highly recommend this cruise.
