This was one of our first experiences of our honeymoon road trip through California and also was one of the best of them. We had so much fun!

Do not miss this opportunity. Great way to see Sea Lions and the bay from a different approach. Great way to get some wind in your hair.

The Speedboat Adventure Tours was an awesome time. My husband and I laughed almost the entire time because we were having so much fun. Kelly, our tour guide, was fun and knowledgeable. Highly recommend this activity while visiting San Diego.

Easy to find. After a thorough safety meeting and an explanation of the boats, we started out. There were six of us in three boats. The entire group consisted of seven boats (six boats of guest and 1 boat with our guide). The guide did an excellent job of keeping the group together, explaining stops along the way, and letting...

This was great unique adventure! Well priced and possibly once in a lifetime if you're not a boat person. We went on a cloudy day so there weren't many boats out which made it more enjoyable for us. If you haven't driven a boat before it might be a little nervous out driving with a bunch of other boats out... More

I signed up for a jet boat ride and ended up in these small boats that you drive yourself. The couple in front of us had issues with their boat so we had to go pretty slow which was disappointing. Our guide, Kelly, was wonderful and very helpful, finally taking over the other boat and letting us go around so... More

Wow what a fun day! Being an avid boater/jet skier I honestly thought riding around on these little boats was going to be an average experience. Boy was I wrong. Except for in the slow/no wake zones you are flying around full throttle on these little speed boats. The harbor was choppy the day we went and it was like... More

I had done this boating tour a few years ago, and decided to take a cousin, who was visiting me from Michigan. She'd never driven a boat, and loved the experience. Our tour guide was Rob, a very confident and experienced boatman. He explained how to operate the boat, and handle any possible situations we may encounter while riding. We... More
