The whole experience was memorable from beginning to end. My family and I chose the 2 hr cruise. The weather was chilly and cloudy but, despite that, it looked amazing. The sea lions were a treat basking on the wooden docks.

Was hoping this cruise would not get cancelled because we visited the week before Christmas during pretty severe lockdown. Was very excited to still get this tour, which was completely open air & Covid safe. Great tour guide, narration. Lots of wonderful photos & history/info about San Diego & Coronado. Would highly recommend & would def go again!
