My fiance and I were on board the 2 hour tour on Sunday, May 22, celebrating graduation from medical school and our wedding in June. The cruise was our second aboard the Adventure and we will definitely come back! Moreover, we have recommended the cruise to many friends!"

BIG misconception that it's only for tourists. This is a great way for tourists to spend 2 hours. Being out on the bay, learning about San Diego and enjoying the views of the city. But, residents will enjoy it as well! There is the one hour tour that takes you either North OR South but for a few dollars more the two hour will take you both directions and is more informative and enjoyable. There are refreshments, both beverages and food to purchase on board. I was very impressed with how much I learned about the city. The views were great and really with coupons it doesn't cost much more than seeing a movie. So much more enjoyable.
