      Good times
      The trip was (as it has been many times before) really nice. We took the last two hour tour of the day (4:15 to 6:30) and it wasn't crowded at all. The narrator was very knowledgeable but unlike previous guides, he didn't inject much if any humor into the narration. He should've mixed in some more 'dad jokes'.

      Not satisfied
      The view was nice but I paid for 2 hrs for full harbor tour and they only did 1 hr tour; only sailed by Coronado side, very disappointed!

      Fun and Informative
      This was a fun and informational cruise. The ship was tidy and the crew helpful and courteous…. A great way to spend a few hours getting to know about San Diego from the bay view.

      Meh, one and done. Wouldn't spend the money again!
      Food and service was good, but not a very interesting experience for the money spent. Nothing really to see for the cruise, just went back and forth in the harbor.

      Relaxing and Informative
      We began the celebration of our 47th wedding anniversary with a two-hour harbor cruise. A very educational, and relaxing time was spent on the water. The crews on both vessels were excellent. Both ships were very clean and appeared well maintained. The narrative provided by the captain(s) was very informative. Cruising by the Navy ships brought memories of my own time at sea. We would highly recommend this very affordable harbor cruise to anyone visiting San Diego or just anyone looking for a fun adventure.

      Clean boat, clean restrooms, great narrator, and easy boarding. We had a great family time! Enjoy seeing Coronado and military ships.

      Wonderful way to get a water tour of San Diego
      Max (with an XXX, sort of) did a great job. This is a fun way to see everywhere around San Diego (Coronado, naval facilities, the Embarcadero). If you are not time constrained, do the 2 hour tour--yes, lots of H20 either way, but lots to see. If you don't mind a little wind/cold (depends upon the season), sit on the top deck, learn some history and military jargon, and hear some bad jokes! Definitely arrive before time to give yourself more opportunities to get good seats.

      Maria was Amazing!
      Our tour guide was very polite and informative. She listened to our interests and made recommendations on the area based on our likes. She was on time and kept you updated on meeting times and places. Very knowledgeable of the area, food, and customs and enjoyed sharing these bits of information! Her food choices were amazing! She took pictures for you during the tour so you didn’t miss any key photo opportunities which I thought was very polite and thoughtful. We are at several of her food recommendations through out the remainder of our visit. I would definitely do this again!

      Interesting perspective from the water
      The tour was as expected. A lot of space on the upper deck and a very knowledgeable narrator. We took the 2 hour tour and experienced both, North and South Bay.

      Nice night on the water.
      The experience was nice but a bit on the pricey side. Service was fair due to the waitress being young and overwhelmed. The tables were very close together with some of the chairs bumping into each other. The food was decent. The views were spectacular but it was very cold and breezy couldn't stay on the top deck or outside long.

    This is such a fun way to spend part of an afternoon in downtown San Diego. It's such a great way to get out on the water, see amazing San Diego views and get a bit of a theme park experience. Dancing to the music and getting swung around on the full stop turns are the best parts. Also in a great location so you can bop over to Seaport Village afterward. I've taken several visitors here and also local friends.

    Be prepared to get Drenched!!!!!! It was hilarious and a great ride but know that if you’re sitting anywhere on the boat you’re guaranteed to be soaked. Kudos to the customer service agent that rebooked us because we missed our exit and ended up 10 minutes off schedule. She helped to ease my disappointment!!!
    The ponchos really only offer limited protection but it’s a speed boat so what can you expect? Lol a drenching.

    Awesome activity. My family included four folks aged 80,75,12 and 10. We sat at the very front and strong wind force against my face was more than expected. Would recommend this trip when temperatures are in the 80's and wind velocity is low. Loved the S turns and the 360's.

    The Jet Boat experience was AWESOME!!! I highly recommend it for thrill seekers. The speed, the tight turns and spins will have you screaming and hollering for more. Do not wear a hot or wig, because it will be flying off.

    What a great time! Staff are friendly. Definitely get down early so you can find parking first & walk to the check in booth. Ponchos provided for free on the boat. You will get wet, but not soaked or anything. The boat really moves quick once they get out in the water & the views are awesome! Totally worth it

    The Patriot Jet boat was great the staff was full of energy and very helpful. They do tricks and take you around the bay. You do get really wet so make sure you have comfortable shoes and you bring extra clothes.

    The boat ride was fun. The tricks were neat, although I would have expected more. Sit towards the back if you’re looking to get splashed! For the price, the ride is okay. They take your photo, but charge you $20 to get it at the end. With the cost, that should be included! Was happy to see them cleaning the boat between rides, but disappointed that they didn’t enforce the mask policy while people were on the boat.

    This was super fun! We are lifetime SoCal residence and this is the first time we have done the jet boat tour. It will definitely not be the last! We got our tickets on Groupon, however they don’t seem to be selling them right now probably due to Covid limitations.

    FYI if you sit in front, you will get wet a lot less than if you sit in the back!!!

    Great fun. Good value for the money in my opinion. Enjoyed crew and boat maneuvers. I sat in the front of the boat one row back. Told approximately the water splashes were generally towards the mid to back section of seating.

    Unfortunately person in front of me chose to wear thin plastic covering which we were all offered. That flapped loudly near my face the entire 30 minutes as she did not sit on the plastic covering or lean back. In hindsight I wish she and her friend were told they do not need the items or have the boat stop after 10 minutes so people could adjust their coverings or remove them to the benefit of the people around them.
    Despite above, had a very good boating experience.

    absolutely horrible. I booked it and paid and when I showed up some short deckhand refused to let me on. After arguing with me he got aggressive and told me I could not get on the ride I paid for. I went to the office and requested my money back. They would not give me his name but DO NOT GO ON THIS RIDE.
