Salute to San Diego: A Military-Themed SEAL Tour, Old Town Tour & Lunch

The day will start with a tour honoring the men and women who have and who are currently serving in the US military. Additionally, we will trace San Diego’s role in Navy and Marine Corps history. The adventure begins by boarding the amphibious SEAL vehicle for a drive along the beautiful Embarcadero of San Diego Bay, hearing tales of the earliest roles of the branches of service in our local history. Entering the water, the SEAL vehicle cruises alongside North Island Naval Station; this facility is known as the “Birthplace of Naval Aviation.” As the SEAL tour ends, guests will board the motor coach and travel to historic Old Town.

Known as the birthplace of California, Old Town teems with a lively, authentic atmosphere, boasting 17 museums and historical sites. Quaint boutiques, mouth-watering restaurants, colorful art galleries and festive theatres populate Old Town, making it a not-to-be-missed hot spot.

In Old Town, you will stop for an authentic Mexican lunch at Casa Guadalajara – one of San Diego’s most reputable Mexican restaurants! This spectacular venue is a welcoming landmark for Old Town San Diego, capturing the “Spirit of Mexico” at its best.

Creatures of Habitat: San Diego Zoo & Lunch at Rondavel
