San Diego SEAL Tours at Embarcadero
Tour Participation Requirements
It all begins with a floating bus (or a boat with wheels, if you prefer) – a crazy amphibious hybrid of a vehicle called a hydra-terra. And there's no better way to dive into a seaport town like San Diego.
We stick to the roads at first, telling you all about the city as we drive around the waterfront across from Coronado, seeing the sights and learning about the people who helped make San Diego the city it is today.
Then we take the plunge into the bay at Shelter Island, cruising past Point Loma, home to the Naval Air Station North Island, Point Loma Submarine Base, the Scripps Institute of Oceanography, and the Navy's marine mammal training center. Yes, this is definitely a proud military town – even sea creatures do their duty.
Let's build one for the Gipper
Though it had been in the works since 1926, the bridge that connects San Diego to Coronado wasn't built until 1967. It took two years, 20,000 tons of steel, and 94,000 cubic yards of concrete to complete. When it opened to traffic on August 3, 1969 – the 200th anniversary of San Diego's founding – the first person to drive over the bridge was Ronald Reagan, then governor of California.
