Old Town Trolley Tours, our land tour, had already been operating in San Diego since 1989, when the idea of providing our guests an amphibious San Diego Sightseeing tour came from our CEO, Chris Belland. Chris went about to find a Hydra Terra vehicle that would serve as our sea & land vehicle to be used during the tour. Our director of operations worked out the entire business plan while at lunch at a local restaurant.
The name SEAL is a tribute to the Navy SEALS who train and are stationed here in San Diego. And, like in the Navy, the term SEAL, for us, is an acronym: SEa And Land. Plus, seals are cute! It’s interesting to note, however, that we see sea lions on our SEAL tour. Many people might also refer to this type of tour as San Diego Duck Tours because in many cities across the country that is what they are called. The format is very similar to Duck Tours, however we like to put our own unique spin on it. Learn and hear more about us when you take your own Sea and Land Adventure tour, the SEAL.
