There was no social distancing while waiting to get on the boat and the security who actually works on the phone also as a narrator could’ve cared less when I asked him to help out with that.

NO SEA LIONS — BE WARNED— CONFIRM FIRST!!
Angel_D
, Aug 2020
PLEASE BE WARNED!!! I paid for this excursion because it says SEA LION adventure and I’m not sure if Viator or if the actual cruise company screwed up but I was VERY ANGRY yesterday when near the end of the 2 hour cruise they tell us that this tour does NOT INCLUDE SEA LIONS!!! Be prepared because all you will see is a ton of naval ships and boats in the water and the skyline. Nothing crazy but I will see that the captain was incredible! Captain Roy provided us a very good guided tour and was humorous and very kind to us. Please make sure that you call the company to double check that you are not paying for something that is being falsely advertised! After we got off the boat, I went to complain to the teller about this and they just said, sorry. That there had been some changes. So again I don’t know who screwed up here but you need to call and make sure and actually for any activity I do not trust third-party websites

My husband and I were watching the boats on the water, not really thinking about going on one, but then thought it would be something nice to do. So I looked up availability and we reserved seats. Best decision! We had a great time. Beautiful scenery, great narration of all the interesting areas of San Diego. We did not regret it. Thank you for the great time.

Take the two hour tour it gives you a complete full guide of the bay

A great cruise with all that you would want to know and see, the warship part of the tour is fascinating and then the second hour with the seals and the helicopter base is just as good, the commentary all the way through was outstanding, great tour but do the two hour tour and you get the lot.
