This was a great cruise for me and my family. Many nuggets of info from tour guide. Got nice pics of sea lions, Coronado Bridge, and some of the ships.

Had an awesome time, it was so refreshing. I really liked how one of the team members walked around to everyone to see if they needed a picture taken with their entire group, I thought that was nice.

We really enjoyed the views and the crew was knowledgeable about the history of the area and of the ships. Arrive early and try to get a seat on the right side of the top deck for the best views. The breeze can get chilly up top if there is cloud cover but it’s not terrible.
