Lots of fun operating a speed boat in San Diego bay. Although 30hp doesn't seem like much, for a first time operator, the boat was fast enough. All employees were friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. I would do it again if I return to San Diego.

This was one of the highlights of my trip! The staff was kind, knowledgeable, and fun. The waters can get a bit choppy, but it made for a thrilling ride! Definitely a must if you want to explore the SD harbor.

It barely fit 1 adult and 2 small children. It wasn’t a comfortable ride for my husband. Two boats is recommended for 2 adults and one child, although I think they’ll let you all go together.
