San Diego is very diversified and has many unique areas, ranging from the pristine coastal waters off La Jolla (meaning The Jewel) to Coronado Island, which is home to the world famous Hotel Del Coronado, to Old Town, the historic center and rich with the Spanish heritage. The fully narrated, one hour harbor cruise will show you many of the Navy ships in the Bay. It will also provide you with a fantastic view of downtown from a different perspective.
