Q & A

Age/Children: We recommend children riding with adults be five and older. Children under five are welcome on a case-by-case basis, as long as the conditions of the water are fair, and the child can hold on, physically. If the conditions are rough, it is not safe for a child under five. Age/Driver: To drive the boat alone, a person must be 18 years old. People 16 and up may drive as long as an adult is in the boat, as well. Height/Weight: No height requirement. Each boat may not exceed 450 lbs.

Part of the fun of San Diego speed boat rental with Speed Boat Adventures is that, at times, we will be riding in open water. Although usually calm, the harbor can be choppy at times.* We do not recommend guests with neck or back problems or a recent surgery participate. Pregnant women should not participate.*

The great thing about our tours is that you really don’t get wet so you can wear anything you like. Our guests wear anything from bathing suits to business suits depending on the weather. If it’s chilly outside we have blankets, gloves, and jackets for you.

Absolutely! We will stop several times during the Charleston Harbor and San Diego Harbor boat tours, you can switch drivers if you like, halfway through the tour!

No problem! Our rental boats in San Diego are very simple to operate and we will make sure you are fully comfortable with the operation before we leave the dock.

The tour lasts two hours from start to finish including orientation. You are on the water for 1.5 hours.

Rules & Safety

We are wiping down all high touch services such as door handles and tables multiple times a day.
