Journey Shelter Island of the San Diego Bay
Drive by the Maritime Museum and Cruise Ship Terminal
Experience San Diego as it was meant to be appreciated...by land and by sea! The brand new "Hydra Terra's" provide you with the unique ability to see America's Finest City on San Diego's only amphibious sightseeing tour. 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 the stories of early sailors as well as the history of the 14-mile long working bay. You also will learn about the importance of the military here in San Diego. The tour on land takes you past the San Diego International Airport dedicated to aviator Charles Lindbergh, just one of the many people you will hear about on your tour.
Then, you will splash down into the San Diego Bay off Shelter Island, where you begin your water-tour segment of the journey. As the SEAL travels through the north end of the Big Bay, keep your eyes peeled for a chance encounter with a California Brown Pelican, the petite Least Tern, the majestic Blue Heron, or perhaps a sea lion or two. You will also hear about the early fishing industry. The Big Bay provides 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 return trip takes you, once again, back up on land where you will return to your starting point via Harbor Drive, while you pass the Maritime Museum and the Cruise Ship Terminal.
