The U.S. Navy officially called them Patrol Craft Fast -- PCFs for short -- but the men who served on them during Vietnam have always known them as Swift Boat.

Feel the history and power of the twin 12 cylinder Detroit diesels as you take a behind the scenes tour of San Diego's military history. Enjoy this one of a kind adventure aboard our historic Swift Boat, PCF-816.

Tour route heads under Coronado Bay Bridge, Naval Base San Diego, and the Naval Amphibious Base. It then heads back by the aircraft carrier basin and Naval Air Station North Island before returning to the museum. This narrated tour is $10 plus Maritime Museum of San Diego admission.
