SAFETY IS OUR #1 PRIORITY: In order to provide our guests with the safest and most comfortable sightseeing experience, Old Town Trolley Tours has implemented a number of new safety measures such as limiting seating to allow riders to maintain appropriate distancing, face coverings required for all guests ages 3 and up and an increased focus on disinfecting and sanitation.

Make a Splash on the SEAL! Experience San Diego as it was meant to be experienced...by land and by sea! The new "Hydra Terras" 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 at 500 Kettner Blvd or Harbor Drive. As you travel along the beautiful Big Bay by land, you will learn about the early fishing industry, the people as well as the history of this 14-mile long working bay. 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 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 majestic Blue Heron, or perhaps a Sea Lion or two.

Learn about the important role the military plays in San Diego. The Big Bay provides views of Point Loma, home to the Cabrillo National Monument, Naval Air Station North Island, the Point Loma Submarine Base, the Scripps Institution of Oceanography and the Navy's marine mammal training center.

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, the Cruise Ship Terminal and the USS Midway Museum.

The San Diego SEAL tour fleet consists of 7 amphibious vehicles manufactured specifically for the tourism industry. These vessels are completely U.S. Coast Guard approved and meet all required regulations for Department of Transportation passenger vessels. Every effort has been made to make these vehicles the strongest and safest possible.

Be prepared for a once-in-a-lifetime thrill!
