I took the 2 hour tour which I recommend as it give you a complete view of the bay - the north tour more about residential, marinas and other "civilian" interests and the south tour about Coronado and all things Navy. The commentary on the trip was superb as the detail was spot on. It is covid season so there were the expect adjustments but that really did not take from the trip at all

We did the one hour tour. We had a great time. The narrator was very informative and the crew was friendly. If we could do it again we’d probably do the 2 hour tour sine the weather was so beautiful. Recommended

Our family had a great time on this cruise. Lots of highlights and interesting historical facts we did not know about the area. Decent bar, too! Only negative was we had to get out of line to exchange our Viator mobile ticket for an actual ticket at the Flagship Crüe ticket kiosk when boarding. Would do again, though. Had fun!

We had a wonderful time! It was educational, informative and so much fun! It was our 6th year wedding anniversary and we may come and do it all over again next year. Being in the mist of the Covid-19 pandemic, the crew made sure that everything was clean, sanitized and safe - made sure everyone wore a mask. Thank you all for such a fantastic experience
