What you'll do

Don your captain's hat and enjoy a self-driving speedboat adventure to experience one of the most thrilling things to do in San Diego. You'll be in control of your very own vessel and given the power to whizz your way around the harbor.

Take the San Diego Speed Boat Adventure with Go City®

  • With us, there are no entry fees on the day – all you've got to do is show your pass.
  • Includes rental of a 13-foot speedboat for up to two passengers.
  • This is a self-driving tour of the San Diego Harbor.
  • Your pass gives you access to many more attractions in San Diego.

Each San Diego Speed Boat is designed to be extremely safe, stable and comfortable.

The vessels all come with safety equipment that has been approved by the Coast Guard and use super-quiet, eco-friendly, 30-horsepower outboard motors. Boats can carry up to three passengers and come with comfortable cushioned seats.

San Diego Speed Boat Adventure Highlights

You don't need to be an experienced driver to pilot the boats either. They're controlled with a steering wheel that handles just like a car, and the throttle only has three positions.

You can choose to cruise slowly like a houseboat and take in all the sights, or whizz across the water as fast as a jet ski.

Along the way, you'll get views of the Navy Ships, the USS Midway aircraft museum, Coronado Bridge, famous Star of India, and the Seaport Village.

Go City is a better way to sightsee. Your pass includes San Diego Speed Boat Adventure tickets, plus admission to dozens of top San Diego attractions for one money-saving price.
