Welcome to San Diego Tours and Cruise Excursions in San Diego by Shore Excursioneer

We offer the absolute best options for your tours and cruise shore excursions in San Diego !

San Diego, California is the 8th largest city in the United States. Located on the Pacific coast, just north of the border with Mexico, it has been called by some as "the birthplace of California."

San Diego was home to two World's Fairs in the 20th century. In preparation for these two international events, a number of Baroque-style structures were erected. Although they did deteriorate over time, many have been restored with their original facades. The downtown skyline, which is along the waterfront, has been described as looking like tools from a toolbox. This is especially evident when it is lit up at night.

The United States Navy has had a significant presence in San Diego since 1901. Along with the Naval Base San Diego, there is the Naval Training Center San Diego, the San Diego Naval Hospital, Camp Matthews, and the Marine Corps Air Station Miramar. One of the most popular attractions and excursions is the San Diego USS Midway Aircraft Carrier Museum Excursion. The city has also been a center for aviation with a number of airplane developers and manufacturers located there. As a point of interest, Charles Lindbergh's The Spirit of St. Louis was built in San Diego.

With its warm dry summers and mild winters, San Diego is a very popular tourist destination. From May to October, the average highs are 66-80F (19-27C), and average lows are 60-70F (16-21C). The early summer months are known as "May gray/June gloom" because of the thick marine cloud cover that rolls in, creating a cool and damp climate.

Perhaps one of the most popular tourist destinations in San Diego is Balboa Park. Visitors can stroll the pathways, visit 16 different museums, 17 botanical gardens, ride the carousel or miniature railroad, go to the puppet theater, or see a play or musical at the Old Globe Theater. Also in Balboa Park is perhaps one of the greatest zoos in the United States - the San Diego Zoo. Known for its open-air, cage-less exhibits, visitors can see 3,700 animals of 650 different species and subspecies in their natural habitats. The zoo has taken great care to create environments that are home to different animals co-existing in each habitat as they would in nature. It is one of the few zoos in the world to house and successfully breed the giant panda. For plant lovers, the arboretum contains more than 700,000 exotic plants. Guests also have the option to see mammals out in the wild on the San Diego Wild Dolphins and Whale Watching Excursion. A fun way to get around and see the best highlights is on the San Diego Hop On Hop Off Trolley Excursion. Or see San Diego from land and water with the amphibious San Diego SEAL Excursion.

Food enthusiasts will delight in the assortment of Mexican food that is available in San Diego - to be expected with its proximity to Mexico. The California burrito is quite well known and contains a combination of delicious carne asada, French fries, cheese, guacamole, and pico de gallo. Another area favorite is samosas, which are small triangular-shaped empanadas. These scrumptious appetizers are either fried or baked and are filled with some combination of potatoes, onions, peas, lentils, cheese, and minced beef or lamb.

No matter what time of year you find yourself in San Diego, there is a wide variety of places to explore. The entire family will enjoy their time there! Or if the adults are looking for something unique, there is the San Diego Brothels, Bites and Booze Excursion!

Fun fact I: Theodor Seuss Geisel (a.k.a. Dr. Seuss) purchased an observation tower in San Diego shortly after World War II. He spent up to 8 hours a day writing some of his beloved books there, including How the Grinch Stole Christmas, The Cat in the Hat, and Horton Hears a Who!.

Fun fact II: The first YouTube video, Me at the Zoo, was shot at the San Diego Zoo by YouTube co-founder Jawed Karim. It is still available for viewing today.
