Fun until someone on the tour had mechanical problems with their speedboat in the middle of the tour, then everyone had to wait and wait and wait, without compensation to the tour. It was a beautiful day and fun while it lasted.

I purchased this as a groupon, so that my husband and I could have some fun and have an adventure in the San Diego waters. The groupon offered a great deal for 2 people and we decided to go on December 24, 2015 at the earliest reservation (9am) which was the best as far as the conditions. I was nervous... More

My husband and I took this tour today and was very disappointed. 2 of the 4 boats had mechanical issues which slowed down the tour. Most of the boats in the group were smaller and older than the white ones in all the pictures. You don't see much of the area other than driving past items, at not a close... More

Great day on the Bay with my two grandchildren. Our guide, Kelly, was exceptional. It was easy to learn and the kids laughed for two hours straight. I highly recommend this tour.

Best experience in SD, but for nervous person, the Bay always has waves and a lot of sealers at sea, but is safe for good drivers.

This was one of the funnest things that we did in SD. From the beginning to the end... "You and whoever else you bring will have fun and enjoy". These little boats can easily go over 50mph..and you get so close to see the seals, the Navy aircarft carrier"you can almost touch it!!! If you enjoy a little adrelanine and... More

Wasn't sure what to expect from this tour but we LOVED it. My partner drove the boat and it was right up his alley. Friendly guide with a very different way to view the city! Prepare to get splashed and hitting the waves can be bumped but such a fun experience.
