San Diego: Patriot Jet Boat Thrill Ride

1. San Diego: Patriot Jet Boat Thrill Ride

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 have lived in San Diego for 25 years and had never been on the Patriot. We had a blast, beautiful day great music super fun crew. I will definitely bring back all my out of town guests!!

Took my brother and friends out on this boat and we all loved it! Catching drifts and getting splashed! It’s like a speed tour around SD! 10/10 recommended!

What an awesome experience! Absolutely fantastic! Can’t wait to come back with my family! 5 stars all the way through ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

Stayed at the intercontinental, just a short walk to the pier. Great experience and would do this again.

This was an awesome experience. I will definitely do it again.
