We toured parts of San Diego and the bay in a hydra terra amphibious vehicle. It was really a wonderful experience where we learned about San Diego's beginnings as a port town, and we were taken out on the bay where we saw sea lions and dolphins. Dolphins are seen less common, but you'll always see the sea lions on the tour. Best of all was the tour guide, who called herself Mermaid. She was about the best guide I've ever seen - big personality, fun and personable, and extremely knowledgeable and passionate about San Diego and it's aquatic surroundings. The driver/captain, Michael was also super nice, and he was a very competent driver and boatsman. All around an amazing experience, well worth the cost!

Lots of very bad dad jokes!!! Movie music played on entering the water! Fantastic California sea lions & seals, egrets, cormorants and magestic brown pelicans flying past! Sail boats, power boats, catamarans! Navy patrol boat with sub machine gun patrolling the submarine base. Seals & dolphins being trained to recover mines! Such a great tour!

Very nice experience, I loved when we drove into the water just got a little scared when we were going through all the waves. The sea lions did stink but that was to be expected. The experience was nice, but on land it was a bit cold with all the cold air driving, but overall I would definitely recommend it to others.
