Patriot Jet Boat Thrill Ride

One of San Diego’s top attractions! The Patriot is our salute to San Diego’s military heritage, a 2,800-horsepower jet boat adorned with stars and stripes. Celebrate your freedom to zoom across the bay, past scenic landmarks and under the Coronado Bridge. With music pumping, your captain will carve twists, turns and 360-degree spins, punctuated with precision stops for quick photo ops. Ponchos are provided - you will get wet! But the refreshing ocean spray, adrenaline rush and panoramic views will have you screaming for more!
