Adventure Water Sports sends water warriors careening through the shimmering waters of Mission Bay atop one of a fleet of WaveRunners. After a brief informative safety video, oceanic explorers climb aboard a comfortable Yamaha WaveRunner VX110, spacious enough for three people or one freewheeling centaur, and speed around Mission Bay's expansive estuary. Through miles of meandering waterways, seafarers test their skills with quick turns, exhilarating wave jumps, and witty banter with passing mermaids.

Adventure Water Sports, LLC

From two outposts on the shores of Mission Bay, Adventure Water Sports, LLC launches vessels and seafaring classes to introduce customers to the joy of cutting through veils of spray and sunshine. Both launching points are near the bay's full-speed zone, so captains hoping to tote skiers behind powerboats or do donuts on a scuba diver’s lawn in waverunners don't waste valuable time idling through the no-wake zone. Kayaks, pedal boats, and paddleboards cut across the steel-blue mirror of the no-wake zone, an ideal stretch for learning and exploring.

Instructors from Adventure Water Sports impart nautical wisdom to youngsters in summer youth classes that focus on anything from waterskiing and wakeboarding to riding aqua cycles. The waterfront retailers also rent out single and tandem terrestrial bicycles for those looking to cruise the Mission Beach boardwalk or simply explain the motorcycle noises they are making with their mouths.
