We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise. We particularly enjoyed the first half of the tour (the southern half). It was very informative. The narrator for the first half was both entertaining and educating. Thank you for a wonderful cruise experience in San Diego Bay.

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!"
