This 90-minute fully-narrated journey departs from Seaport Village located on Harbor Drive at the Embarcadero. As you travel along the beautiful Big Bay by land, you will hear stories of early sailors as well as the history of the 14-mile long working bay. You also will learn about the importance of the military in San Diego. Pass by San Diego International Airport, dedicated to aviator Charles Lindbergh, just one of the many people you will hear about on your San Diego Seal Tour.
Then, you will splash down into the San Diego Bay off Shelter Island, where you begin the water-tour segment of the journey. As the seal travels through the north end of the Big Bay, keep your eyes peeled for a chance encounter with a California brown pelican. The Big Bay provides views of Point Loma, home to the Cabrillo National Monument, Naval Air Station North Island, the Point Loma Submarine Base and the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. The area is a popular playground for seals and sea-lions so keep your eyes out during your San Diego duck tour - make that seal tour!
Return to land where you will return to your starting point via Harbor Drive, passing the Maritime Museum and Cruise Ship Terminal along the way.

This tour was so much more fun that we had expected! Very informative and a great way to see sights from a different perspective. Covered a lot of ground because there is no traffic on the water.
We were pleasantly surprised that much of the time was spent on the water in the harbor. We were fortunate that it was a beautiful day, although a bit windy. I would expect most days to be very pleasant, it is Southern California. There are no bad seats therefore you can easily enjoy the full experience of seeing the sights. Captain George is very skilled at minimizing the wakes we encountered and Jerry was knowledgeable and entertaining. I would highly recommend this activity if you want a harbor tour and a relaxing way to enjoy it.
Fun, informative tour. I definitely got a kick out of the vehicle driving into the water!
Had a great time with our 10 yr old granddaughter - a unique experience. I wish there had been more to see and a bit closer to land for better views, but otherwise great time.
This tour was amazing. Fun from beginning to end. Captain Hal and First Mate Tom were awesome. We had a great time.
