A Typical Tour

Meet your tour guide at the Marina and fill out the paperwork.  Then it is time to head down to the boats, where your guide will show you the basics and go over a few simple instructions before untying from the dock.

You will be driving your own boat/boats and the tour guide is in his own separate boat.  The tour guide is out on the water to help insure safety and to get you around to all the sights quicker.  BUT, it is your tour so let the tour guide know what you want to do!!!

Upon exiting the beautiful Chula Vista Marina, you will see the Downtown skyline to the right and the Mexican border to the left.  While out on the water, in your own boat, you will enjoy The San Diego Harbor with a tour of the Coronado Bridge, Harbor Island, North Island, USS Midway, Maritime Museum, Coronado Island, etc...
