This was exciting and educational. Great way to tour the harbour. Our safety was paramount. And our guide was friendly and well informed. One highlight was getting to ride under the Coronado Bridge. I would definitely do this again!

This was a fantastic adventure. We fortunately booked the last excursion of the day and there was no rush to get back for the next group. Perico was an excellent guide, informative, friendly, and patient. We first went to a dock with sea lions and seals sun bathing and where allowed to bring our boat up to the dock for some fantastic close-up photos. We then sped around the bay to go under the Coronado Bridge. Then onto the USS Midway, where we were allowed to sale next to and under the flight decks. Next onto to the Star of India and other interesting boats in the harbor. We were then allowed to race back to the starting point, all of which took almost two hours. There were four other couples in our excursion and we were able to interact with them while waiting for our instructions on boat operation and safety. All and all we would recommend this tour to anyone seeking a great time and adventure.

A fantastic trip! Good briefing before we got into the boats, then off we went. Had a bit of a problem with our boat in that it would not level out at top speed. No Problem! Swap boats in the middle of the bay!! After that all was good even if bay was a bit choppy. Fabulous trip and will do it again if we come back - give it a go , you won't regret it.

My husband said he wants to do this every time we go to San Diego from now on! That's how much we enjoyed ourselves. Our guides were laid back and entertaining. We loved being "by ourselves" on a guided tour. It was a great time. We'll definitely be back!

Abgesehen von den tollen Ausblicken die man hat war das Spass pur. Die Boote sind einfach zu bedienen. Wir sind richtig über die Wellen geflogen (wenn man wollte). Man wird zu nichts gezwungen, kann aber alles machen. Ein unbedingtes Muss wenn man in San Diego ist.

An awesome, adrenalin-filled way to cruise San Diego Bay! The tour was fantastic and very well organised. We received a thorough briefing on how to drive the boats and before we knew it, we were speeding over the waves past aircraft carriers and seeing all the sights of the city. Cruising right up to view the sea lions on the sea wall was a particular highlight, and the guide did a great job of pointing out all the major landmarks. The boats were easy to pilot, and I would recommend this tour to any visitor to San Diego!

Excellent value for money - we had 2 hours in a 2 man speedboat and it was a fun day . There was a slight delay while one of the speedboats had to be de-seaweeded! and a note on the door would have assisted but that apart it was a superb experience. I bought this as a surprise for my husband to drive the speedboat and he loved every minute of it. Wear flip-flops or sandals and I took a towel for my knees and any flailing water. Then sit and enjoy! Highly recommended

This was am amazing experience, from start to finish. Our guide gave us all instruction and it was really easy to follow. We headed out and just had a blast. There was commentary via hand-held radios to each boat and we even managed a little air-time over the waves. Highly recommend...

Aside from our boat having a crack and taking on water in the middle of the bay, it was a blast! Our instructor was very professional and fun. The boats were fast and the views were spectacular. I will be going again on my next visit!
