What You Can Expect
As you travel along the beautiful bay by land, you will hear stories of early sailors and the history of the bay. You also will learn about the importance of the military in San Diego, home to several US Navy and US Marine stations. Pass by San Diego International Airport, dedicated to aviator Charles Lindbergh, just one of the many people you will hear about on your San Diego Seal Tour.
Then, you will splash down into San Diego Bay from Shelter Island, where you begin the water portion of the journey. As the seal boat travels through the north end of the Big Bay, as it’s often called, keep your eyes peeled for a chance encounter with a California brown pelican. The Big Bay provides views of Point Loma (home to the Cabrillo National Monument), Naval Air Station North Island, the Point Loma Submarine Base and the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. The area is also a popular playground for seals and sea lions, so don’t look away from the water for a second!
You will head back and land and return to your starting point via Harbor Drive, passing the Maritime Museum and cruise ship terminal along the way.
Tour route is subject to change without notice due to weather or traffic conditions.
