SEA & LAND ADVENTURES

We Make Vacations Better®

Join us on San Diego SEAL Tours to View America’s Finest City on a Boat with Wheels.

Ready to see the best of San Diego on sea and land? Your 90-minute, fully narrated SEAL Tour departs from Seaport Village or the Embarcadero. Wind your way through picturesque San Diego streets before splashing down for a cruise through the waters of the Mission Bay. Experience the history and ecological wonders of San Diego in the comfort and security of our virtually unsinkable Hydra-Terras. Here you will learn first-hand of our rich military history and cruise through the waters that are the playground of the California Sea Lion.

San Diego tours depart from two locations, Seaport Village or Embarcadero. Your land and sea adventure is led by one of our experienced sightseeing tour guides. Our captain and crew are locals who love this beautiful city, so they know about the best things to see and do!

View some of San Diego’s most famous points of interest including the Maritime Museum, Star of India, The U.S.S. Midway, Lindbergh Field, Seaport Village, Shelter Island and many other San Diego attractions!

Once on the waters of Mission Bay, you can say that you’ve been on the largest man-made aquatic park in the country! This saltwater lagoon is home to many upscale beach resorts like the Paradise Point Resort & Spa and the Hyatt Mission Spa & Marina. You’ll enjoy great views of pet-friendly Dog Beach, the beachfront neighborhoods of Mission Beach and the massive Seaworld entertainment complex. You’ll also see the large peninsular park known as Fiesta Island and the Hubbs Seaworld Research Institute, a facility committed to conserving and renewing marine life. Along with all these great sights, you’ll likely find plenty of wakeboarders, kayakers, jet-skiers and maybe even dolphins and sea lions out worshipping the San Diego sun!
