Approximately 1½ Hours
See the best of San Diego on land and in the water. Take your seat on the San Diego Seal Tour—an adventure that includes the most interesting sights on land and then heads straight into the bay without missing a beat or moving from your seat. The Seal is an open-air amphibious vehicle driven by an experienced captain and specially designed to be used on land and in the water. Each Seal is Coast Guard-approved and meets all passenger vehicle and department of transportation requirements to ensure the safety and comfort of everyone on board. Your 90-minute journey begins on the streets of San Diego and is narrated by the first mate, who lives in and loves San Diego and has a vast knowledge of things to do and see. You’ll hear about San Diego’s rich history and see the Maritime Museum where the Star of India—the oldest active sailing vessel in the world—is docked. Watch for the U.S.S. Midway, Lindbergh Field, Little Italy and many other San Diego attractions. Your tour then takes a fascinating turn as you drive straight into San Diego Bay. Gliding past resident San Diego sea lions, California brown pelicans, and several other wildlife species that call the bay home, you’ll take a leisurely cruise to witness the magnificence of the city from the water. See Point Loma with its beautiful mansions lining the hillside, the North Island Naval Air Station repair facility for fighter jets, the Point Loma Submarine Base, the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, the Marine Mammal Training Center and Shelter Island. Learn about San Diego’s interesting maritime past and present, including the tuna industry and the importance of the military in the city. This is your chance to go local and see firsthand, and from two different perspectives, 'America's Finest City.'
