SO MUCH FUN! You've got to do this! It's a hoot! This is about 45 minutes of sheer fun. It's a thrill ride, like a roller coaster, but in a jet boat. They give you a rain poncho, wear it, and more importantly, sit on it so it doesn't fly up. Do not sit in the far back unless you really want to get drenched. Do this with your friends, your family, your significant other, just do it! It's so much fun. This is a 70 foot dual engine jet that holds up to 139 people and reaches speed of 50 mph all while blasting rock music. Don't want to spoil the fun, but they do some pretty nifty maneuvers as well out on the San Diego Bay. I was afraid, but once I did it, I wanted to to it again! My husband and I took our two daughters ages 17 and 20, and they loved it.

What a fab trip! If you're looking for a leisurely cruise around San Diego bay...don't do this! If you want a thrill ride this is your man ( or boat!). Absolutely brilliant. Well worth the cost. This boat is fast. It does sharp twists & turns out in the bay which are totally exhilarating. Be prepared to get wet! The crew provide plastic capes but to be honest that ruins the fun! Do it! It's fab!

"A FABULOUS way to introduce yourself to San Diego"

Made the GREAT decision to book a 2 hour harbor cruise with Flagship Cruises. We took the MTS Trolley from our hotel to the Santa Fe Depot station and had a very easy 2 block walk to their dock area...right next to the USS Midway. The ship was clean (including the restrooms - very important) & comfortable and had plenty of seating available. They have food & drinks available on board, including adult beverage specials which were being enjoyed! Lol. Our host and tour guide was Dana...he was FABULOUS! If you've ever traveled somewhere and wished you had a friend or family member to take you on the best inside information tour ever, Dana & Flagship should be your go to in San Diego Harbor! We only had one free day in San Diego while visiting on business - but feel we made the best decision to see and learn so much about the area through the knowledge and humor that Dana provided. The number of Naval ships we cruised by along with Dana's vast knowledge and descriptions of their histories and purposes also made us very proud of our US Military & our country. I booked the tour on their website and took advantage of the 55 & over rate (ugh, when did that happen?) plus, they had a promo code for a discount for booking online. The full price was very reasonable I felt. But after 2 discounts and a FAB time, I feel like we SCORED!!!

This a wonderful way to see the city from a different viewpoint. We took the two hour cruise, so you see a lot of the harbor. My favorite part was seeing the Coronado Bridge and the naval boats that were being built. Our son lives here, and his family enjoyed it as well. The boat is very comfortable. You can sit inside by the window or go upstairs and be outside.

This is a nice way to learn the sights and history of SD without walking. Relax on this ship and enjoy the views. Bar and snacks available; good bathrooms too.
