We had an excellent guide named Corey. He taught us exactly how to use the boat and made us feel comfortable. Once we got out of the wait zone we were able to take off going all around the harbor. It wasn't very expensive and it was sooo much fun! I thoroughly recommend this tourist attraction. The sites were beautiful... More

I've been living in San Diego for over a decade now, and friends and family are constantly coming out to visit. I am always looking for fun things to do to show people why I live here (3000 miles away from friends and family). This tour was awesome! I really wish I knew about it before this year. Speeding around... More

I took my boyfriend for his birthday on a mini speedboat and had a blast!! The tour guide was awesome and knowledgable, it was definetly an experience we will never forget. My favorite part was the sea lions on the barge, they swim right next to your boat! I would recommend this to anyone =)

Its a must if you are visiting San Diego and the pictures you get are spectacular. We had a dolphin come upnext... More
