Overall rating

4.8 / 5

based on 148 reviews

Easy location to find . Parking adjacent to the location (well highlighted by GetYourGuide). Sailed on time , and a live and nice commentary during the “informative” journey . Nice chairs / seating on deck, with some snacks to buy in the lower floor . A nice well organized one . I liked it .

It was worth the money! The boat was a little outdated on the inside but the experience was nice. I think they should include the pictures at the end in the package since they just toss the ones that people don’t buy. Over all I had a great time

Overall great price for the tour. The information by our tour guide about the harbor and San Diego was great. Must do.

Good opportunity to see alot of San Diego in a short time - at your own pace

Loved this cruise! Very knowledgeable and helpful guides and staff!
