Full description
Embark on a thrilling adventure on the San Diego bay as you zip and zoom past military ships, along the downtown skyline, and under the iconic Coronado Bridge. With rock music pumping, feel the wind and the refreshing spray of the San Diego bay as the Patriot carves 360-degree turns and reaches speeds upwards of 50 miles per hour. There's no experience like it. Enjoy gorgeous views on a 30-minute tour on an open-air jet boat. No two Patriot trips are the same, but this is not just a random joy ride through the bay. You will be taken past San Diego's most beautiful waterfront sights including: USS Midway Aircraft Carrier, North Island Naval Air Station, Coronado Bridge, Star of India and the iconic ships of the Maritime Museum, as well as the San Diego skyline. You may get wet, but ponchos are provided.

    I am a 78 year old woman who still rides my horse and likes (within my risk tolerance) an adventure. I was looking for an event to celebrate a friends birthday along with a third girlfriend. I still have a smile on my face a week later after the Patriot Jet Boat Ride. My girlfriends and I laughed and screamed, felt like we were children at our first Disneyland experience with all E Ticket rides. My husbands 80th birthday is coming up and to celebrate, we are taking 17 family members on the Jet Boat Ride. It didn't occur to me that health could be a concern but Jet Boat Ride team are professionals, they are all about safety and they clearly spell out health reasons you should choose another boating option to give you an educated choice. I can't recommend this experience enough. I LOVED it.....

    we enjoyed the activity (it should be 5*), but this site is no good. 1) the ticket does not state that we need to check in at ticket window which delayed us, therefore our family did not get to sit together because we got on board as the last group. 2) the price just as regular, same as you buy on site. Other place i checked later as cheap as $15 and the family in front of us $56 for 4 people
