Fun Way to See and Learn About San Diego
Michelle_C, Nov 2022
It was a fun way to get an overview of the San Diego area and learn a bit about the area along the way. Enjoyed seeing the sea lions too!
Good tour for an introduction to the harbour
Rick_C, Nov 2022
A quick, interesting tour of the city followed by some time on the water. We enjoyed seeing the seals, but it is a bit too long on the water to get to and from the seals
Awesome Time
Courtney_C, Nov 2022
We had a blast on our seal tour! The only reason I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 is because we had a little mishap with the vehicle. The captain Fozii and the 1st mate, Brett handle things very well and got us all back safely! I would highly recommend this trip to anyone who loves seals, sea lions, and dad jokes☺️
A Must Do!
Valorie_O, Nov 2022
