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.

Description

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 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, 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.

The San Diego Seals fleet consists of 5 amphibious vehicles produced specifically for the tourism industry and for search/rescue operations. They are capable of operating in high winds, rains, and floods. They can drive into an area of heavy flooding and simply boat through it. These vehicles feature high performance all wheel drive, turbo diesel engine, automatic transmission, heavy-duty suspension system, 49 passengers or 8,000 lbs. of cargo capacity, 75 mph on road speed and 7 knots in the water.

These vessels are completely U.S. Coast Guard approved and meet all regulations for passenger vessels, meet Department of Transportation requirements and in fact even come equipped with driver and passenger side air bags. Every effort has been made to make these vehicles the strongest and safest possible.
