"Great experience!"
July, 2016
The one hour guided tour of the South Bay was both educational and relaxing. The sights to see were well worth pictures and the crew was friendly and knowledgeable. I would definitely sail again!
Tip: Do bring sunscreen and/or a hat if traveling in the summer months.

""A Widow experience""
July, 2015
I am a widow lost my husband of 34 years married. I said it's time to travel so I have one son in San Diego, I booked the most amazing cruise with FlagShip. My son and his wife and our grandchildren had an amazing time, learned about the sights and loved the view of that bridge going towards Coronado. My only regret is that the camera didn't work and our pictures prior to getting on the boat didn't develop. But I will be back, to retake the picture and have another beautiful time.
Tip: Well the only thing I can say is be ready to have a fabulous time, bring a sweater,

"A wonderful day on the bay"
January, 2015
This sail was on my 25th anniversary. The captain was very informative and great at his job. Only 4 others on the tour made it very special. There were all kinds of free drinks and snacks for us. They provided coats and blankets and everything you could need for a perfect day on the water.
Tip: Be ready for a fun sail in a beautiful place. Like I stated before, they provide everything you might need.

Took our 20 year olds, 16 year olds, my husband and out on patriot. What a blast, the crew were great, all focussed on safety. YOU MUST TAKE THE PONCHO AND TUCK IT IN We went out of the harbour and for the next 30 mins it was thrills and spills We came back happy, wet and ready to book again

"Patriot Jet Boat is a must do during the summer"

Reviewed July 23, 2017 NEW
We bought a discount ticket through a social website. The 30 minute ride was worth every penny. The ticketing was easy, the boarding was a breeze, and the boat ride was super fun. We went fast the whole time, the driver did some fun tricks and we got wet. We passed by several other Flagship and competitor cruises and you could tell all their passengers were jealous.They offer panchos if you want to try to stay dry. My whole family loved it, 8 year old, too.

"Best way to spend a beautiful day on the Bay!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed July 23, 2017 NEW
I was in town visiting friends and they suggested we take this two hour cruise. The ship is beautiful and comfortable, the scenery spectacular, but what I appreciated most was the knowledge level of the guide. He knew every single Navy ship in port - it's purpose, crew size, cargo capacity, length and more. He also knew a lot about the history of the Navy in San Diego and pointed out sites in the city that were near the harbor. I learned so much and thoroughly enjoyed the trip!

Get ready for some speed and to get wet! This fun boat cruise is a must for the price, it's about 1/2 boat ride which is perfect to get some quick thrills in. Boat crew was friendly, music was on point. I would recommend it!

"Patriot Jet Boat all the way!"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed July 22, 2017 NEW
I looked at Harbor cruises offered by Flagship and thought it would be too long for my kids. Then saw the Patriot Jet Boat, which gave you the same views but in a quarter of the time! Plus it looked like fun, and it was really great! The boat goes really fast and plays loud music (which you still can have a hard time hearing when going full speed). The crew provides rain ponchos, but you still get soaking wet (it comes in through the neckline!) and forget your sneakers...wear sandals. I've done this type of tour in another city and have to say I slightly preferred the other tour for 2 main reasons. 1) This tour provides no explanation. When you get on, they tell you the itinerary, but that's it. I would have preferred had they stopped 3-4 times and just given me a brief description/history of what we were seeing (ex: Coronado Bridge which we went under). Doesn't take long and would make it more enjoyable. 2) Not sure getting this wet is useful. I enjoy the spray of water, but a full drenching (actually more like 4!) isn't quite necessary. You can still enjoy the speed and spins, without the tidal wave. Still had fun and still would recommend.
