We had a great time doing the 2-hr tour. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable & we learned a lot about the Barbour’s history in such short time. Would highly recommend this excursion!

Nice narration and view. Courteous crew. Clean boat and restrooms. I like tour but must say VERY annoyed at survey for needing 100 characters.

Albeit a winter and somewhat drizzly day in San Diego, our group had fun on the full bay harbor cruise. We found the staff accommodating and informative. We invited out of town friends to spend the day with us here and this was a great activity for both local and out of town guests.

Really enjoyed this cruise. We were able to see parts of the harbor we would have never seen on land. The narration was also super helpful and interesting.

We took the 2 hour cruise in San Diego harbor. We had a great time even though the weather was cool & drisly. Rusty was an awesome narrator! He was so knowledgeable about the naval base ships.

I brief review, but wanted to praise this family-owned business for the great trip. Very, very good service on the boat.We saw a lot of U.S. Navy ships, including submarines! The guide continually provided relevant and interesting information. Well worth the cost.They have various beverages (including alcohol) and snacks on board.My wife is subject to sea-sickness, but had no issues during the 2 hours.
