What people are saying about USS Midway Museum

Two segments. One was North San Diego harbor, followed by a South San Diego harbor tour. Both had great views and skyline pictures. The South captured a beautiful sunset with clouds that made my cell phone into a professional photography media. Easy on and off boarding. Expected tip was $10 for the tourguide/captain.

We really enjoyed the harbor cruise while visiting San Diego for a few days. We toured both the north and south harbors and got to see beautiful views from the water and picked up fun tidbits of information from our tour guide.

The check-in was smooth, and the family-owned cruise was a peaceful experience. It is an activity suitable for family members of all ages. The narrator on-board shared his expertise for those of us wanting to explore and learn.

Good drinks and nice atmosphere it was very educational I enjoyed myself
