We went the end of April 2018 and even with a chilly breeze on the water we forgot all about being cold until we were done and back on land. The staff is awesome and the tour guy was even better Thank you all for a fantastic ride. 16 year old son loved it and my 9yr old daughter loved it mom and Dad approved

If you’re planning your next outing and in San Diego, book a SpeedBoat Adventure tour! I was expecting them to regulate us and not really be able to go as fast as we wanted, but the experience was quite the opposite. Our guide Chase was awesome and he totally lived up to his name. He constantly pushed us to go fast and have fun. We’ll be booking again.

We had an awesome time on our speedboat tour!!! The guide was amazing!! I believe his name was Nick. We had an unusual situation with one boat having very inexperienced drivers, but Nick kept it fun and safe for everyone!!. He showed great decision making in dealing with the whole group and keeping it exciting and yet having great patience with the boat that was out of the loop, so to speak. Would recommend this tour to everyone visiting the area!!!

Worn out equipment. Reliability major worry. One of our two boats failed early into tour. Other wouldn't idle smoothly. Very disappointed, poor value.
