I have two teenage boys who loved driving their own speedboats. The booking process and pre-departure information was easy. Our guide was informative, easy to relate to and allowed us to have fun driving the boats. We had an enjoyable experience and created memories.

Everything is fine, until something goes wrong. Your guide will loose its temper, shout and yell at you and at the end, he left us alone. Frustrating. Irresponsible. And for sure unprofessional and a no-go for this price. 1. If you are taller than 6', we cannot recommend this tour. We have bruises all over our knees. 2. If the... More

I do this anytime friends are in town and they love the view of Downtown and the bridge! Tip: Try to be in the back of the line of boats so you get more waves

This was an excellent experience. The boat stops by most of San Diego's important attractions, you drive your own boat. Our guide, in the boat in front of us, was more than excellent. Highly recommend to anyone visiting San Diego.

The most exciting two hours you'll ever spend (pay attention to the guy doing the 'training', he is not the best public speaker, though).

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
