San Diego Captain Loves The Bay San Diego Captain Richard Goben is a 20+ year veteran at Hornblower.

My cousin is handicapped and cannot climb stairs. Your entire crew took exceptional care of us. The captain and the first mate were extremely enjoyable to listen to and were so knowledgeable of all the ships and sights. They really made our day.

– Paula and Don V

BIG misconception that it's only for tourists. Being out on the bay, learning about San Diego and enjoying the views of the city-residents will enjoy it as well! I was very impressed with how much I learned about the city.
