The San Diego Seal Tour is an absolute must do when visiting San Diego. It was very informational and fun to see San Diego in a different way. We now have a list of things to check out the next time we visit. Our Captain, Kurt and 1st Mate, Mermaid we’re phenomenal! The tour was about an hour and a half, it didn’t seem like that long at all. Even though we’ve now experienced it, we’ll definitely do it again!

Captain Michael and Mermaid made the experience entertaining and safe! Mermaid was awesome with the history of San Diego and the best assistant for Captain Michael. Hoping they both are treated well and hoping to see Mermaid on our next adventure! Oh the plus side we saw plenty of sea lions in and out of the water.

We made it to the meeting place with 5 minutes to spare, but the desk reception rudely told us we were late. After that, once we were on the boat/bus, we had nothing but laughs and a great time.

We were struck out in the water for over an hour on our first day in San Diego. Staff not apologetic enough for us. Vehicles should be serviced better. We missed another tour planned.

SEAL Tours was so great. The tour guide Amy gave us so much history and information about San Diego. Fozlio was so helpful in telling us how to get on the vehicle and helped take pictures of my friends and I. The whole experience was awesome and I would do it it again.

Could not find parking we couldn’t check in until our full group was there although 2 of us of the group was trying to get checked in while the other two were finding parking you guys should really have your personal parking specifically for these tours. I find it unfair people driving from different areas & not being able to get on the boat due to parking and not being able to check in.
