    We saw several whales and one was especially close. But the crew were top notch too! So friendly and polite.

    We joined the two-hour harbor cruise and found it to be comfortable, informative and interesting. The vessel was about 1/3 full so there were plenty of seats and it was easy to hear the narrator. The staff were most helpful taking photos with stunning backgrounds. Good value

    It was a wonderful experience sailing around the harbor, seeing the sights, spotting seals, enjoying the sunset. Wine and snacks were provided. The captain was wonderful - very friendly, knowledgeable, and skilled in sailing. We also had good company in our fellow travellers.

    Great Zoo. If You Do Go Use The App And Plan Your Stay. Gondola Is A Must Do And The 4D Movie Is A Experience That Is Very Sensory

    Leave plenty of time - probably 4 to 6 hours to see and appreciate everything. We needed more time! This tour was incredible! It was fascinating, informative and eerie. Knowing these planes, helicopters, ship and its quarters were used in conflicts by devoted people, many who gave all, was truly extraordinary

    improvement would be to have the prime rib Staff attention was excellent throughout the cruise. The only ding would be the way the Prime Rib was cooked and served. It should have been able to be served as med-rare vice well done. The au-jus was served after the fact rather than with the meal. The appetizers to the dessert were excellent.

    The animals looked and acted very healthy. The topography is wonderful so you can see lots of animals. My only complaint is there is SO much up-selling. Each "adventure" was an add-on. The cost of just the basic park is expensive without these add-ons.

    What a fun way to explore the San Diego waters. Chill was a great driver and Amy was fantastic as our guide. She was very knowledgeable and personable. We saw sea lions, ships and even got to see the Navy training dolphins! Would highly recommend this trip!!

    Super chill, relaxing experience. We had never been sailing before. Captain Zach was great! Light drinks/snacks were offered so either eat before or bring your own (experience is approx 3 hrs). Great thing to do for a day adventure!

    Tadeo was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. I felt very safe the whole day. He was very considerate and empathic with everyone in the group and even with others. I had a carry-on and he helped me leave it in a safe place so I would be more comfortable during our walk. He even helped a blind man find his way.
    Since Tadeo studied history and is a local, he has a lot of interesting facts about the past and present of Tijuana.
    The trip was very complete: history, buildings, food and tequila tasting! Everything in a manner that always kept us interested and wanting to be engaged in all activities.
    He had the day organized, and kept updating with his team, which made us feel even safer.
    I would definitely book another tour with this company, especially with Tadeo.
