Nice ride around the bay with well informed caption and first mate. It was a good trip.

We enjoyed our boat tour very much! We saw much of the harbor and heard many interesting facts about the area.

The tour was pleasant and relaxing, every boat, ship and sub we went by was explained by our very knowledgeable captain. My only complaint is you have to take a taxi to a spot on the wharf and are dropped off at a locked gate. Luckily I had my phone to call the captain, who came and let us in.
I was disappointed with the San Diego tours, in the fact that there is no hotel pickup in Mission Bay and a taxi ride, one way, is 40, and then not sure where you are going. I would be willing to pay more for a tour that had a pick and drop off at the correct spot, so you didn't have to wonder where you are supposed to be.
