Fantastic Experience !!
I have rented Jet Skies over the past few years from about 3 different companies.

They were ok, borderline unprofessional, but I thought that's the way they all are.

I couldn't have been more wrong. San Diego Bat Adventures is a Top Notch company. I had a few questions to ask after making the online reservation. Kathy was amazing. She was patient and kind and very gracious. I haven't even shown up and I am impressed.
When my son and I arrived we were very glad to see the check in area was decked out very nicely. We were getting ready for a tropical adventure. Everyone was very professional and nice. They truly made us feel welcome. They even provided us with a light wet suit top due the the cool weather at no extra charge. Thy have very nice, clean restroom facilities on site ( not all do). The Jet Skis were in top notch condition and performed perfectly. We had a great time out on the bay. We ventured west to the Submarine base and bait barge, and then Jetted down to the Coronado Bridge, Symphony Shell, Midway . San Diego Bay is beautiful and it was great to do some sight seeing from the water. We were only able to take the 75 minute ride, but I highly recommend 2 hours if you can so you have more time to enjoy the sights.

We were warmly greeted and even given brownies upon our return, Yum!

This was by far the best Jet Ski Experience we have had. I will be back.

Thanks Kathy and Team

This Place was the best. I had a group of 19, Kathy and the crew at San Diego Adventures took care of us with the highest level of customer service. They made it their personal mission that we have the best time out on the bay. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a good time out on the water.

We had a great time. They were simply the best. They even provided glasses lanyards. We spent hours looking for one but nobody had them. That's great service!
I almost booked the wrong company with the almost same name on the same street with the same pricing, etc...because the other company offer 20% off discount code on-line. Their company logos were very different though. This company does not offer discounts, their jet skis and life jackets have the design of the American flag. Make sure the weather was warm because it gets cold and windy out there.

Our visit to San Diego Bay Adventures was a very memorable one. The customer service that we received was outstanding. We recommend the Early Bird special. The Bay was clear of others boats and the water was calm. The cost was very reasonable and gave us some remarkable memories. Their rules were clearly understandable and upon arriving early they immediately acknowledged us and started the process to get us out on the water.

This is definitely the most professional business in San Diego that rents wave runners. Location, facilities, the staff and the waverunners we’re all top quality and top notch. I’ve rented waverunners from many operators over the years, especially here in San Diego, but SD Adventures is heads and shoulders above the rest.

We had a blast! The operation is very smooth here, they go over everything with you, and give you cubbies for your belongings. There are also cases for your phone to bring on the jetski. We were impressed with the staff, and everything was very clear in terms of directions and rules. Would highly recommend this for anyone visiting or looking for a fun activity in San Diego! They even had brownies for us after our ride. Also, grab a drink after at Coastera down the street for great views! There were some waves when we went in the Bay, so you may need to watch your speed if you have any back/neck issues. Make sure you arrive 45 min early to go over everything.

Great experience and highly recommend! If you are near San Diego, you have to jet ski using this company! Very professional and helpful. It was so amazing jet skiing in the bay and up close to sea lions and ships. The most fun we’ve had as a family in awhile.

This experience was top notch from booking our reservation to our time on the water. The staff was amazing. They explained the dangers & went over safety & our path on the water. We were provided with the waterproof packs for our phones, straps for our eyeglasses- free of charge. They even took a group picture that was sent to my email.

My Aunt and friend had a blast!
I cannot thank John enough for his care and concern. I was out on the water and scared out of my mind. I called the emergency number, John calmed me down & talked me back to the marina. He met me & led me in. After the ski’s were docked he made sure I was ok and made me a cup of coffee.

IF I were to ever try again- San Diego Bay Adventures would be my number one choice without a doubt!

I definitely recommend 100%

Great time racing in the San Diego bay with my grown kids. Great Bay Adventures made the process very smooth and they were all very friendly. The 1 hour 15 min option gives you plenty of time to go all the way to Coronado bridge and back all the way to the other side of the bay before returning to the harbor. Great experience all around.

Arrive early, pay attention to the instruction for a better experience. This was my first time on a jet ski & it was a blast! I got 2 hours from 9 am on a Thursday & I had the only ski in the bay for at least an hour. Air and water temp 62F to start. Optional wet suit is included. I did want to avoid the daredevils. Went all over the allowed areas several times. When I saw waves I cut throttle since I was not ready to try jumping them & I really wanted to stay on. The smoothest water was just outside Harbor Island, north end of the bay, where I got up to 50mph with almost no traffic on the bay. Bring sunglasses.
