We had a great experience on this tour. Easy to find and well-organized. The guides were great and I would highly recommend it. You will get wet and when there's waves you do bounce around a lot so as long as you are prepared for that, you will love it!

Well worth the money if you like to be adventurous. You actually drive your own boat around the Bay up close to all the sites. We were able to fit 3 people in our boat. There is a 450 lb max. Plenty for my husband, myself and our teenage daughter.

This is the best way to enjoy the San Diego skyline while cruising around the bay in your own speedboat. Our tour guide was most friendly and let everyone explore the numerous sights and sea life at their ou own speed. We. cruised by the gigantic Midway aircraft carrier and other attractions like the Star of India sail boat. Time... More

My fiance and I have been together 2 years today and we love to do outdoor activities so to celebrate, we saw the reviews were good so we decided to try this. Our leader was funny, informative, and patient with our whole group. He was also very chill so that we were able to ride around the water on our... More

This was fun for the whole family, great way to see the north and south bay in one shot. I would suggest the morning trip if you want a smooth ride, gets a pretty rough in the afternoon with all the big boats zooming around. Took our 5 and 7 year old kidss and they had a great time.

Love recommending Speed Boat Adventures to visitors and locals alike. Driving your own 2 seater speed boat (you can even safely switch drivers half way through your tour!) on San Diego's Big Bay is an experience you won't forget. Never the same twice, but always fun. Try it, you will be so glad you did.

You drive your own 2-person speed boat through San Diego harbor, up to 30 miles per hour- it's amazing! A totally unique view of the tourist attractions like the USS Midway, and up close next to the seal lions on their docks. Not for the faint of heart, kids should be brave if they come with you!

When my girlfriend and I decided we wanted to give this a try, we did not know what to expect. We knew we wanted to go out on the water and have some fun but we had no idea that it would take us to parts of San Diego that we had never seen before! Not only was our guide... More

We really enjoyed this experience although it was our first time to ride a boat. It was safe and exciting at this time. You will enjoy riding the speed boat alone and going with the full speed at the ocean.
