Educational and informative. We took the 2 hour tour, we saw the seals and the monument on the first hour and the second hour the ships and Coronado island highlights. The captain was pleasant and informative

San Diego Bay is beautiful and this is a great way to see it at night. Get a window table for your dinner. Go up on the large top deck to enjoy the view. Dance the DJ later in the cruise. Everyone on board was having a good time.

"Great Dinner and Whale Watching Cruise"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed September 09, 2019 NEW
We did a dinner cruise on Christmas and a whale watching cruise a few days before. The dinner cruise was super fun and the food was delicious. The whale watching cruise would have been a lot funner if the water wasn't so choppy (lots of people got sick), but that was not the companies fault. We even got to see a little whale

August 31st, I was in the area visiting and was very excited about this cruise. The cruise itself was wonderful and the captain who was our tour commentator was very engaging and informative. I would recommend the two hour cruise because the first hour you sail up one side of the bay and then return to the dock after 1 hour to release the 1 hour cruise people and board the next 1 hour cruise people. Then the 2nd hour, we went down the other side of the bay under the Coronado Bridge and learned so much history on all the ships there. Pleasant and relaxing and informative. Did not partake of any food, just a couple of sodas. Felt very safe and the staff was friendly and welcoming. Now getting to the cruise was not pleasant. I booked on the phone and was sent an email telling us the address and it said Pier 2. It had a google map which showed the location away from the Midland Ship Museum some distance. That was my focus since the morning was spent at Midway. Even my own google maps on my phone between the address of Midway and the address for Hornblower showed the location away from the Midway. We had seen two large Hornblower ships docked coming down Harbor Drive towards Midway. It is hard to see addresses on Harbor drive on the wharf side and even harder to see Pier numbers. So our mistake, we assumed the two ships we saw was the place to go. So after Midway, we rushed down the crowded sidewalk in the noon heat to that location, only to be told by a crew member that location was the evening cruise location and to go back to Pier 1, a different pier than we were told in the email. Again we rushed back in the heat afraid we were going to miss the cruise because it took 15 minutes to get there. There was something special going on with lots of booths, people, music on the drive. Still not seeing Pier numbers and not trusting Google maps, we finally arrived, literally next door to the Midway parking. Google maps was misleading. It did not show this address was right next to Midway. Their map on their email was misleading. It also did not show this location was right next to Midway. Never did see any Pier numbers so don't know whether we were at Pier 1 or 2. Did see a pier called Broadway. All they had at the street was a small flip board sign about 3 feet tall saying Hornblower. The ticket office was behind either booths that were set up or another building. We would have never seen this little sign from the street as we were focused on finding parking when we first arrived. When we left Midway, we were on the sidewalk and not the street. We did make the cruise and it was wonderful. I would suggest that they need to clarify in their email that they have TWO locations and that this cruise is right next door to the Midway Ship Museum instead of relying on their Google Map attachment. We arrived exhausted, sweat soaked and spent the first hour indoors in air conditioning, but could see out the large windows and could hear the audio just fine. The 2nd hour we spent up on top deck next to the railing and it was also pleasant and relaxing. I would recommend this cruise, just please for out of towners, please clarify your location better in your email. Google Maps cannot be trusted.

"Patriot jet boat"

This is a $32 35 minute blast around San Diego bay, what a blast, the guys who run this tour make it, they provide ponchos if you don’t want to get wet,but what’s the point of that, the boat is very powerful and does sharp stops and turns, you also get great views around the bay, as well as a good time. Would definitely recommend, and good value for money, you also get the chance to buy a photo they take before you board. Top tip sit nearer the front to stay reasonably dry, good luck.
