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

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.

Loved everything about this cruise! Learned so much about San Diego, even though I grew-up and lived in San Diego county for over 40 years! Thanks to both captain and co-captain and the crew member who brewed me tea! It was a perfect day!
