Get ready for an exciting, one-of-a-kind adventure aboard the San Diego SEAL. These specially-designed amphibious vehicles are able to navigate both land and sea, and this tour allows you to to see San Diego like no other can. Your 90 minute tour begins on the historic streets of San Diego and winds its way along the scenic Big Bay coast before splashing into the bay for an experience you'll never forget.

The Big Bay provides views of Point Loma, home to the Cabrillo National Monument, Naval Air Station North Island, the Point Loma Submarine Base, the Scripps Institution of Oceanography and the Navy's marine mammal training center.
The return trip takes you back to dry land where you will pass the Maritime Museum, the Cruise Ship Terminal and the USS Midway Museum on your way back to the starting point. Book your SEAL tour today, and see San Diego the way it was meant to be seen, by land and by sea!
