Such a glorious day for a Harbor Cruise! (I guess almost everyday is a glorious day in sunny SD!) Wasn't crowded on the boat on the day we went. We were able to hear everything during the narration which was fun and interesting. We could see almost everything pointed out to us because the guide had helpful descriptors for bldgs, ships, and swatches of land. So fun to see the land from the water.

Very informative but fun. Great selection Food and drinks onboard. Staff was amazing. Server was fast and very friendly. Our team of 26 (of various ages) really enjoyed it. We would do it again.

We did the two hours tours. The north one you see the5seals and south one you see and learn about Navy ships. Glad we did both.

This was an activity for my work team, and we truly enjoyed it. I wish we would have had time to do the 2-hour tour.

The ship crew was polite friendly and professional
