What is there to do?

Want to learn about San Diego in a whole new way? Why not on a speed boat...and we're not kidding!

San Diego Speed Boat Adventures give families a unique way to see, and learn, all about the fabulous city of San Diego....on the water...and fast!

The fully narrated your will take you 13 miles along the Big Bay. You will have amazing views of Navy Ships, as well as the Coronado Bridge and the USS Midway aircraft museum. 

Kids can see that famous Star of India ship, as well as the historic ships at the Maritime Museum. Don't forget about the amazing view of the San Diego skyline that you will see!

For your tour, you will get your very own F13 mini speed boat, and life jackets and instructions to make sure you're safe. You'll also learn the boating basics, and the "rules of the road" including the tour hand signals.

You don't need any experience, AND you get to actually drive the boat yourself. Now THAT is family fun!  If you're over 18 years you can be your own captain, and kids can just enjoy the ride. 

Along the way, you can listen to witty narration that will tell you fun facts about the city, as well as it's interesting history. This is done throuhg a two-way communications system that is mounted in each boat.

Each boat can carry up to 3 persons, and they are super-quiet and eco-friendly, so all you have to think about is just enjoying the view!

San Diego Speed Boat Adventures give you a whole new spin on sightseeing - literally!
