      Perfect place for a special celebration
      This place is amazing. The crew is so welcoming and attentive. My boyfriend loved it. We got the unlimited drinks package and it was definitely worth it. Crew makes your dinner feel special. They announced every birthday, anniversary and engagement. Crew makes you feel important. Observation deck had great views. Dinner was great. I would definitely recommend it. I don't think the appetizers would be worth adding since this includes a 3 course meal already. Very elegant.

      Great time with Flagship Cruises
      Although we were not lucky to see a single whale during our tour, we did get to see many, many pods of Dolphins all around us. Some of them swam next to the boat for a long distance. Our narrator was very informative and kept us informed throughout the trip. We had a great time. The most amazing thing for us, is that the company Flagship Cruises really stands behind customer satisfaction. We were all offered a FREE return ticket since we did not see any whales. Who does that in our current times? NOBODY!! Kudos to this company. If you are looking for something to do in San Diego, you wont do wrong by using their services, as you enjoy the great views of the San Diego harbor.

      Poor communication
      We paid for a 2-hour tour and after 1 hour the boat brought us back to the harbor. People were getting off the boat and we did the same. Also purchased our photo on the pier exit. Probably people who paid for 2-hour tour should have stayed on the boat for another hour, nobody said anything. We only later have seen the boat cruising in a different direction and concluded that maybe the 1-hour and 2-hour tours are somehow combined, with people remaining on board for the second part of the tour. Overall, just poor communication and directions.

      Good
      I did the two hour cruise. I enjoyed the south side more than north side. The live commentary is good, but again the clarity of understanding depends on quietness of the surrounding.

      Water tour of San Diego
      We enjoyed views of North and South bays. Seeing the naval ships and submarines was interesting! I just wish we had known about parking. The 3 hour limit is 3 hours… no way to extend time. Park in the 6 hour Midway lot so you don’t have to stress about return time.

      Excellent cruises
      I ended up doing five cruises total last week, two upper, two lower Harbor and one whale watching. All were very impressive, education and fun! The whale watching was phenomenal! I highly recommend them. Easy access right next to the USS Midway.

      A must
      The narrative of the tour was great. It was nice to learn about the history of San Diego. The ship was clean and so where the restrooms but there was no where to change a baby's diaper.

      Disappointing...we could not hear a thing
      This trip could have been so much better. San Diego Harbor is beautiful. There was so much to see and learn. Unfortunately, you couldn't hear a thing from the speakers. We moved all around the boat to try and the only place you could possibly hear was the speakers on the blustery outside back of the ship. Such a disappointment. This is a good trip if you want to talk and drink and look outside occasionally but don't expect to learn anything about what you are seeing from the narration on the speakers. If I had to do it again, I would spend more money for a visit where I could learn and hear something.We booked the 2 hour Full Bay tour and got off after 1 hour.

      Once in a lifetime
      The crew kept it lively and informative throughout this adventure. There are food and drink options for all ages. We saw dolphins, sea lions and seals along the route to where the whales are supposed to be. I missed the whale breaching at the end (my fault) but based on other responses it seemed magical. Of course, they do not guarantee whale sightings as these are untrained creatures of the sea but overall, my bride and I had a wonderful time.

      Great except lack of accommodation of group seating( 16)
      It was an amazing night! We had a large group of 16 and we were sat at two different tables, which was disappointing because we were separated. Other than that everyone enjoyed theirselves and had a great time. Dancing hour was so much fun

      Whales and More!
      Our group of nine family members, ages ten to eighty, all loved this trip. The arrangements went very smoothly. We needed to switch our reservation by a day and it happened easily with no hassle. The ship was comfortable, the guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. We spotted our first whale before we left the inner harbor! As we got further out we saw a few more and one stuck around awhile to gave us photos ops. We finished with dolphins surfing our wake! I was impressed that when the crew thought a younger whale might be getting stressed by our presence they stopped following it. This showed real respect for the wildlife.

    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.
