San Diego Seal Tour

4.5 stars 71 reviews

5.0 stars The captain and tour guide on the SEAL were first rate! My whole family, including two teenagers, loved it. The only thing that was challenging was the cryptic ticket purchasing and reservation system. No listed tour times on the web site? Why not? Even with some tidal changes, its still possible to include that. You can see tide charts for a whole year online. Otherwise, it was all... Reviewed by:Tom H.,

San Diego SEAL Tour (Amphibious Vehicle)


Make a Splash on the SEAL! Our brand new "Hydra Terra's" provide you with the unique ability to see America's Finest City on San Diego's only amphibious sightseeing tour. This 90-minute fully-narrated duck tour departs from our easy-to-locate departure location at Seaport Village in downtown San Diego.

Listen to expert narration as you experience the history and ecological wonders of San Diego in the comfort and security of these virtually unsinkable Hydra-Terra’s. As you travel along beautiful Big Bay by land, hear the stories of early sailors as well as the history of this 14-mile long working bay.

Also, learn about the importance of the military here in San Diego. The land portion of this tour takes you past the San Diego International Airport dedicated to aviator Charles Lindbergh, just one of the many people you will hear about on your tour.

Then, splash down into the San Diego Bay off Shelter Island, where you begin your water-tour segment of the journey. As the SEAL travels through the north of end of the Big Bay, keep your eyes peeled for a chance encounter with a California Brown Pelican, the petite Least Tern, the majestic Blue Heron, or perhaps a sea lion or two.

Learn about the early fishing industry. View Point Loma, home to the Cabrillo National Monument, Naval Air Station North Island, the Point Loma Submarine Base, and the Scripps Institution of Oceanography.

The return trip takes you back up on land. Pass the Maritime Museum and the Cruise Ship Terminal before returning to Seaport Village.

Please note: Tour route is subject to change without notice due to weather or traffic conditions.
