We used to live in SD but have since moved away. The instructor was so friendly and we had the best time! There was only one other couple during our time slot so we got to go out early & go even further. I would highly suggest to anyone - resident or visitor!

Wonderful experience, driving the boat in full speed and bouncing over the waves! No need for more words to complete this review.

We were looking for something fun to do which would last for a few hours - our Speed Boat Adventures excursion was perfect! We had 2 adults, a 10 year old and a 6 year old and we all had a great time. The guide/leader was excellent and the "tour" was a ton of fun. You get extremely unique views... More

Had an awesome time. My wife and I were smiling and laughing from start to end! Would recommend this to anyone. Only thing to consider is the later in the day you go the more wind and chop you might experience out on the water so maybe consider going earlier. We went at 11 and it was a little choppy,... More

That was such a fun way to tour the harbor, see the skyline and have plain ol fun. The guide was great and you have some autonomy on the tour. You can't stray from the path, but you aren't right on top of each other also

You must take this tour before you leave San Diego!!!! It's FUN, FAST, and AFFORDABLE. Corey our tour guide was the best. He was patient, knowledgable, and friendly. The tour was so good, while we were on the tour, other visitors were asking us the name of the tour. Lots of history and I think this is the best way... More

The concept of this tour is great. Drive your own speed boats around the Bay while getting a tour. Problem is, the boats aren't well maintained or adjusted so there were constant issues with getting up to the proper speed. We constantly had to stop to adjust or service boats and the tour guide ended up being ore of a... More

Had a great time driving the speed boats around the harbor, you get to see San Diego from a completely new perspective. Online booking was easy and our guide was great. We will definitely do this again with a group of friends.

My husband and I were the only ones on the tour and it was a lot of fun blasting through the bay. We even caught some good air on a big wave but I always felt safe.
