During our trip to San Diego I decided that we ought to do a tour of some sort. we have traveled a lot and as much as we love exploring on our own, it is always good to get an overview from a local or professional. I picked out two tours that I thought might be fun and we ended up deciding on the SEAL Tour. We were really pleased with it.
The tour began on dry land at the Seaport Village and winds through the historic part of the harbor area.
This BBQ joint was part of the movie Top Gun, where they sing “You’ve Lost That Lovin Feelin’'.
We some some of the older buildings that have recently been restored.
There is so much US Naval History in that area.
Our tour guide told us about lots of history in the area including the Abalone history. I love learning new facts and old history, so this was perfect for me.
Here is our guide, Big Matty, he was an Army vet and a trove of information about the San Diego area. he talked for almost 2 hours about san Diego and I have to say we learned a lot.
The pelicans never even looked up!
We passed by another tour coming back in, but this is what we looked like out there on the water.
This Navy ship was coming into port and a Helicopter was flying over. So cool!
Kirk Miller, this picture is for you!
I think this area was called Point Loma and after Coronado, it would have been my second choice on cool place to live in San Diego.
We got to get up close and personal with the Sea Lions. They were so excited to see us!
Well this one was striking a pose…
There were quite a few of them and they were pretty brave and playful!
Keep in mind that earlier that day we happened to see the Blue Angels practicing. Then we saw wild dolphins that afternoon. We are blessed beyond measure!
When it was time to end our tour the boys both had faces like this!
I would highly recommend the SEAL Tour if you are in the area.
