Sintering 2017: San Diego by Land and Sea Tour
Your full Sintering 2017 registration includes the San Diego by Land and Sea tour, to include the USS Midway Museum
This tour has been custom designed to capture the best of San Diego with a friendly and professional tour guide to provide narration along the way, sharing some of the most interesting stories, legends and facts. Enjoy such areas as Balboa Park which is considered to be San Diego’s cultural center, Historic Old Town, known as the birthplace of California, and the beautiful waterfront.
Additionally, you’ll see San Diego from a totally different perspective — cruising the calm waters of the bay from a coastguard-certified yacht. Enjoy panoramic views of the San Diego city skyline while getting an up-close look at modern U.S. Navy ships, the historic and majestic Star of India, bustling shipyards, the spectacular Coronado Bay Bridge, glamorous yachts and more.
Following the harbor cruise, you will get to board the USS Midway Aircraft Carrier Museum. Commissioned in 1945 and decommissioned in 1992, USS Midway (CV-41) served proudly during the Korean War, Vietnam, and the Persian Gulf wars. The lead ship of the Midway class, she was the first aircraft carrier built that was too large to pass through the Panama Canal. You’ll explore a floating city at sea and relive nearly 50 years of world history aboard the longest-serving Navy aircraft carrier of the 20th century.
