Fun and exciting

I have been on this ride a few times and it's a blast!!!

Enjoyed every minute of the trip. A unique, fun way to see San Diego bay. Plastic ponchos are provided, but with the size of the waves that wash over the boat and the wind whipping past, they do little to keep you dry. Go on a warm sunny day, bring a waterproof camera and expect to get soaking wet and you will have a great time. Employees on the boat were all very nice, fun and professional. Definitely worth the price!

We took a sailboat and docked at Anthonys, walked to the jet boat, the jet boat exceeded our expectations, walked back to Anthonys for lunch. A very enjoyable afternoon. Thank you.

If you don't do anything else whilst in San Diego ride the Patriot. The jet boat ride is a real experience with great views of the USS Midway and the city. Bring your sun glasses to protect your eyes at high speed.

It was something different to do from the normal San Diego Attractions. If you like speed and don't mind getting wet this is for you. I would definately do this again.

This tour was super fun, especially for the kids! It was a great way to see the SD Harbor. One tip, you get absolutely soaked! I thought we might get a little wet, but one of the main goals of the the boat driver is to get the whole boat completely soaked. Wear the poncho!!
