Harbor Tour San Diego Hornblower Cruises San Diego Harbor Tour

This was one of the only actual plans we made while visiting San Diego last week. The tour was nicely narrated, the staff and crew were friendly and outgoing, and although it was a little nippy earlier in the morning...The cruise was lovely. They pointed out and knew the history for all of the military ships and other attractions, misc. factoids, etc. I have no complaints about this experience, and would love to do it again for a different type of event. It was a great day to have a mimosa, and cruise around both parts of the harbor for a tour.

We live in San Diego and bring most of our east coast guests on the two hr cruise. It is a great introduction to our city and naval presence. In fact, we have more guests in August and plan on taking them as well. Every trip has been a new experience. This time we saw an arriving submarine and also a bait boat unloading fish into the bait barge. Thanks for all you do to make all the SD visitors welcome.
