An evening cruise with a buffet dinner. Not overly crowded and easy to move around. The lights of the skyline were impressive. After that--its dark outside.

The 2 hour cruise was an excellent way to see San Diego harbor and learn some of the history. We saw sea lions, Navy ships, and the skyline. This was the highlight of our sightseeing for the week.

The views were great but the narrator did not enunciate well and could hardly be understood. We missed much of the description, which was quite interesting when occasionally understood.More

The cruise enjoyable, relaxing, fun and informative. We'd do it again. The narration was very good. We got to see seals, submarines, lots of ships and aircraft. The Coronado bridge at almost sunset is a must see.
