This speedboat tour was everything I hoped it would be. My wife had to come to town for a conference so my 10 year old grand daughter and I took this tour. Let me tell you it was an absolute blast...highly recommend!


Had an amazing and exhilarating time on the speedboat tour. Drove the boat ourselves with Jeremy as our guide in his own boat. He made it super fun and was very knowledgeable about the harbor area. Been to San Diego quite a few times and been out on boat tours but never one quite like this where we had the thrill of full throttle cruising to chilling right next to the Midway and the sea lions. What a great time.


This experience was wonderful! My boyfriend and I highly enjoyed the guided tour. We loved the beautiful scenery and learning more about San Diego’s history. Additionally, Jeremy was a fantastic tour guide, he was informative and humorous. I would 100% recommend to everyone!


The best experience I’ve had since being in San Diego. My girlfriend and I will definitely be coming back with family❤️ Maybe even purchase a speedboat down the road.DEFINITELY RECOMMEND


Oh my gosh, this was a wonderful chance to see wildlife and to get a tour of the city and under the Coronado bridge. Our guide was great! He took us under the USS Midway Carrier Ship and told us all about the military and shipping history. After he gave us the tour we had time to speed around in the boat on our own.


My son and his girlfriend LOVED it! Great value and amazing experience for them both! Highly recommend!


I bought this as a gift for my sons birthday and he went with his girlfriend. They had a blast and took photos even though the weather could have been better for San Diego (I am out of state) Tour operator was great and communication was as well as my son had to make it later in the day. Totally worth it and highly recommend for anyone!!!!


We had a Great Time. Our guide was patient,safety minded, funny and very informative about the scenes that we saw along the tour.


The guide, Dave was so professional and nice. Good experience indeed! He had a real radio voice via radio, lol. Clear and smooth!


A real fun and entertaining 90 minutes on the water. Capt K was a great tour guide and offered interesting facts about the bay along our boat cruise. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to try something on the water.
