Sail away on San Diego’s world-famous harbor excursion boat tour where you will experience stunning views of waterfront redevelopment, downtown San Diego and new, luxury residential high-rises; exclusive sights of Naval Air Station North Island; Coronado Island and the award-winning bridge that connects it to San Diego; and the decommissioned aircraft carrier USS Midway that now serves as a museum and events venue. You will also have an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at how shipping and commerce take place in the multiple Port of San Diego properties along the way. Speakers will provide insightful commentaries on the economic drivers of the waterfront, how the US Navy and local officials work together for successful land use, and how redevelopment of the waterfront has been the region’s foundation for success.
