Customer Reviews

This experience has a customer rating of 5
based on 2 reviews.
We are locals and didn’t know what to expect. We had a amazing time with our tour guide Johnny! He gave helpful directions regarding operating our boat and had a BLAST out on the San Diego Bay. At the end we could couldn’t stop laughing of how fast and how much fun we were having zipping around the bay. Definitely recommended if you are a local or tourist!
So fun!
