The location is easy to find and it was a perfect cruise on the Bayside for the 4th of July. I would highly recommend going early because there are less people on the Bay/Beach side in the early AM. The staff were very friendly and even though they didn't have a basket left to put on my bike, I luckily had a handle on my water bottle so the young women offered to tie it to the handlebars. : ) Now, that's good customer service/satisfaction.

GREAT EXPERIENCE!! This was such a fun experience! We rented a "Fun Cat", which is a large Lounge chair for only 2 people. It has a small motor in order to maneuver the Fun Cat on the bay. Only 2 buttons and very easy to use. I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to try something different. Other people on the water were asking us where we rented the Fun Cat b/c they had never seen anything like it!
We will definitely try this again!!

They were cool. Affordable rates, but they still do paper waivers. Equipment is clean, new and good looking. And their staff is friendly. They are good on the times too so if you come back 5 minutes after due they aren't charging an arm and a leg.

Beware, look elsewhere to rent a boat. We rented the 20' Hurricane for 4 hours on the bay and the overall experience was awful. The boat has several problems and limited amenities that I will detail here:
1) The steering was so tight it was almost impossible to turn the wheel. It took both hands and significant force to move the motor. This made for slight corrections in turning impossible. It also raised my concern because I didn't feel I could maneuver the boat quickly if it needed to be. Lack of maintenance and potentially worn out steering components is most likely the cause.
2) The boat was pathetically slow. The boat is advertised to carry 10 adults. Our group had 6 adults and 2 teenagers evenly dispersed in the front and rear. Full throttle and the boat couldn't even get up on plane. The more throttle you gave it, the more noise it made and the more water it plowed and that was about it. Adjusting the trim didn't help either. With a 100+ horsepower outboard, there should be no issue with this boat going 25+ knots. We were lucky to do 5-7 knots and with the motor being so loud above 1/2 throttle, we ended up idling most of the day and getting tossed around by all the wakes.
3) Everything on the boat is disabled. We were not told this before hand, but the radio, bilge pump, and all other electronics are disabled. Again, having something like the bilge pump disabled is a safety issue and gives the driver no ability to prevent sinking if they were to take on water. They also told us when we got back to the dock that they would have loaned us a speaker. Why isn't that offered or supplied to the renters before they board the boat?
4) The overall condition of the boat is rough. The seats are torn, there are cracks in the hull above the waterline, and only the fuel gauge and tach worked on the dash.
3) Upon raising my concerns with the staff, they looked perplexed and annoyed that we didn't have a good time. They implied we were seeking a partial refund (which I thought was fair), and thats when the customer service went down the drain. One guy had to call another guy, then that guy wasn't authorized to provide a refund, so they called the 'owner' who didn't answer his phone. They said that the owner would get in touch within a day. They also warned me that the owner is not inclined to provide any refund. I am still waiting for a call 3 days later. Nice. I guess I know the answer to getting a partial refund.
All of this said, I am not pleased with the boat or the customer experience. Would not recommend renting vessels from this company.

This place is so racist I got sick the day of riding on a jet ski and I wanted to cancel I asked for a refund and they said absolutely not. But the day before when I booked the jet ski I watched as they refund a white man for not calling or showing up to his appointment. At least I showed up so they knew I was really sick smh horrible experience 1/10

We've stayed at the Catamaran for over 30 years and even got married there in 2019. We love the resort even though it is aging. The location is spectacular and the amenities are generally perfect for Mission Bay and the surrounding beach areas. Unfortunately, I believe they are using the pandemic to cut costs which is disappointing. They are still charging full resort rates but have cancelled all house keeping services. You can request towels or toiletries to be dropped off at your door but they don't clean, empty trash or change sheets unless you stay over 5 days. The claim is protection for the workers and the guests but. none of the restaurant or front desk staff were wearing masks nor offering sanitizer. No social distancing or other suggestions that the pandemic is of concern (we are all vaccinated so that is not my gripe) so the cutting of services appears to be just a more grab. No reducing in price to match the reduction in service level which is what disappointed me. I'm certain they will return to their usual level of service in the future but if you are traveling with children or expect any level of housekeeping, best to wait until they catch up.

We became aware of the Solar Fun Cat from a segment on KUSI NEWS, First I have to say that your employee that helped us that day went out of his to make sure we had a wonderful time. There was a mix up on our reservation and he went beyond the call of duty to fix it, The sail was very relaxing and calming. The Fun Cat only goes up to 5 mph and it controlled by a push down switch which so your always pushing down on the switch. The switches also control the steering can be tricky. All and all it was a fun two hours on the water

Went to dock at 9 a.m. wanted to rent waverunner for one hour at 3:00 p.m. Girl told me to come back after noon because they preferred to rent it for 2-hours (more money), but if no one took it for two hrs. I could reserve. I went back at 5 minutes after 12 and found out that she rented for one hour to someone else. Very BAD customer service -- I won't go back and would not recommend.

The boat's music speaker was broken. They gave us a small cheap portable speaker which is basically useless while driving the boat. You can stop the boat, but according to the rules you're not allowed to get out of the boat and enjoy the water. (helpful information to state before renting a boat). Even the miles per hour and all the gauges on the boat were not working. Poor condition, money better spent elsewhere.

Overall this property needs a lot of new updates. Room was not ready at 4pm check in, roads in property are crack, dead palms, overgrown bushes. Room was not wife throughly, found pieces of food behind door and under bed. Handle of bathroom door was almost falling. Toilet paper is cheap and feels like sand paper. Restaurant had better quality toilet paper. Porch light did not work, I ask to get it fix the first night because we were walking at night and trip. We stays four days and no one fit it. The back porch was so filthy. The only beautiful was the view. Overall will not come back to this resort, very expensive and it needs a lot of updates.
