So cool!

An incredibly unique experience to explore the bay in a fun little speed boat! The instructors were amazing, and informative as well.

Had a blast. Scary but really fun. Our guide was Super nice and very helpful. We had a couple of problems with our boat in the beginning. But our guide did everything he could to correct the situation and make it right. He was Awesome. We did the 3pm tour and that was a perfect time

What fun! They let the kids drive and take control into the open ocean. The guide narrates historical relics along the coast in between instructions on speed and direction. Two hours went very fast for our 2 speed boats. A must when you are visiting San Diego!

This was the highlight of our San Diego trip. We took our kids ranging in ages 7 to 18. Our guide, Dwayne, was so much fun and taught us well so we felt safe driving the boats. What an exhilarating way to experience the ocean! We loved the sea lions and touring the maritime museum ships. One word of advice:... More

The attraction was fun despite that the speakers stopped working during the tour...we found it just average compared to some excellent tours we've been on.

This was our 2nd time using Speed Boat Adventures. Both outings were great! The tour is about 1 hour and 15 minutes long, so you have plenty of time to drive the boat. You get to see all of the greater San Diego Bay from the Navy dolphin training area, submarine base, the sea lions' dock, the Coronado Bridge, the... More

Took coworkers from the east coast out to see the sights. Mike accommodated us with a 5 o'clock appointment on Wednesday evening. Glen provided an excellent brief before we got underway for a fast paced very cool way to see the city and bay. You'll get wet but not soaked. Be prepared to hit a few big wakes and get... More
