San Diego Bay Jet Boat Ride

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Make your own way to the San Diego waterfront to meet your jet boat for your adrenaline-fueled ride. At check-in, you are provided with a waterproof poncho and plastic bag that helps to keep your clothing and any valuables dry.

    Named the Patriot, and painted with vibrant American flag imagery, your jet boat boasts 1,400-horsepower engines for a turbo-charged ride. Hold tight as your expert captain puts the high-powered ocean-going vessel into gear. Zip past the USS Midway, under the iconic Coronado Bridge and around San Diego Bay, reaching speeds of up to 40 nautical mph (64 kph). A pumping soundtrack of high-energy music plays as your boat tears through the waters of the bay. Scream with delight as your captain executes tricky maneuvers such as 360-degree spins and power slides.

    During your tour, admire San Diego’s city skyline and waterfront attractions like Seaport Village, the Embarcadero, and Coronado Island, and then return to the departure point. Before leaving, check out the souvenir photos and purchase any that you like.

    We did one of these in Miami and it was a nice tour of the bay, followed by some fun jet-boat riding. Was hoping this would be similar, but this was more of a quick, get out, do a couple tricks, and come back in type of experience.

    Woow, is all I have to say. The thrills, smiles, and laughs were endless on this adventure. The twists and turns were so awesome and the music they play hyped up the thrill for sure. Oh and it’s pretty much like a 30 minute log ride on steroids. You’ll get wet and you’ll love
