You will have 90 minutes to explore and take in the picturesque sights of San Diego. The second-largest city in California is noted for being the birthplace of the Golden State, which you’ll learn about during the tour. The tour provides excellent narration, with insider commentary and knowledge about the city’s rich history and top locations.
The land portion of your tour begins as you head out of Seaport Village. Learn about the city’s past as a prominent fishing port, its people, and the majestic San Diego Bay. As you travel past San Diego International Airport, discover the significant connection the city has with legendary aviator Charles Lindbergh.
Hold on tight as your Hydra-Terra vehicle splashes into the San Diego Bay off Shelter Island! Travel north as your sea experience introduces you to the beautiful San Diego skyline and a variety of marine creatures. Look up to see herons and pelicans flying above and be greeted by sea lions, all of whom make their home in and around the warm bay waters.
While in the water, learn about San Diego’s extensive partnership with the military. Some of the top facilities are located in the city, such as Cabrillo National Monument, Naval Air Station North Island, Point Loma Submarine base, and the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. You can see them all from your vantage point in the vehicle.
The tour ends with your return to land. Make your way back to the starting location via Harbor Drive. During your travel back, check out the Maritime Museum, Cruise Ship Terminal, and the USS Midway Museum.
