Featuring 90-minute, fully narrated tours that depart from Seaport Village and Embarcadero, San Diego SEAL Tours offers an exciting family-friendly experience from atop a boat on wheels. The tours are held on amphibious vehicles—guided by seasoned captains—that travel through the scenic streets before diving into the cool waters of the San Diego Harbor, where many California sea lions call home.
Is it fun for kids?
Definitely! Kids love our unique and entertaining San Diego tour.
How long is the tour?
The San Diego tour is 90 minutes total with approximately 30 minutes on land and 60 minutes on the water.
Will I get wet?
No. However, a few drops of water could splash up from a wake.
Will I get seasick?
No. However, if you are extremely susceptible to motion sickness, you may want to take something for your own comfort. Our vehicle has a weighted, flat bottom, which allows for a much smoother ride.
Is your tour wheelchair accessible?
Seaport Village only: We have the ability to handle wheelchairs and scooters with a manual lift available at the boarding location. Please contact San Diego Seal Tours directly for accessible available tour times.
