Is it a boat? Is it a bus? No - it's San Diego's original amphibious water and land adventure! Commonly known as a duck tour, the San Diego Seal Tour is a fun and unique way to explore the city from the streets and the sea.

This 90-minute fully-narrated journey departs from Seaport Village located on Harbor Drive at the Embarcadero. As you travel along the beautiful Big Bay by land, you will hear stories of early sailors as well as the history of the 14-mile long working bay and learn about the importance of the military in San Diego. Splash down into the San Diego Bay off Shelter Island to begin the water-tour segment of the journey. As the seal travels through the north end of the Big Bay, enjoy great views of Point Loma, home to the Cabrillo National Monument, Naval Air Station North Island, the Point Loma Submarine Base and the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. The area is a popular playground for sea-lions and the tours namesake animal, seals, so keep your eyes peeled!
