Tour Details


A boat ride on San diego Bay is lovely, but an exhilarating ride on a dual-engine jet boat is an experience to remember. Zoom around the bay, enjoying views of the city skyline and Coronado Island and relishing the feel of the roaring wind. If thats not enough thrill, 360-degree spins add to the excitement. Choose from several departure times to suit your sightseeing schedule.

Know More about this tour

Your jet boat adventure on San Diego Bay begins on the waterfront, near the USS Midway Museum. After checking in, receive a plastic poncho and ziplock bag to keep yourself and any personal items dry. Then step aboard the Patriot and set off into the bay.

With two turbo-charged, 1,400-horsepower engines, the red-white-and-blue Patriot is a high-powered ocean-going vessel that will zip and zoom you under the famous Coronado Bridge and around the bay. If the onboard music and the rushing wind in your hair dont put you in a wild mood, the hold-on-tight 360-degree spins and speeds reaching 40 nautical mph (64 kph) surely will.
During your 30-minute tour, admire San Diegos city skyline and waterfront attractions like the USS Midway aircraft carrier, 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.

  • 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!

  • Awesome! Amazing thrill ride for all ages!

  • 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.

  • It was an awesome ride! Really enjoyed it!

  • 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 amazing!

  • 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!!
