Bodies of water are frequent metaphors in poetry due to their unfathomable depths, unknowable sprawl, and unattainable porpoises. Set sail into the enigma with this Groupon.
$64 for a Harbor Tour for Two Adults ($129 Value)
During the 13-mile harbor tour, participants captain an easy-to-operate, two-seater speedboat. They receive direction via two-way radio from an experienced guide who points out popular sights such as the Star of India and Coronado Bridge. Several stops along the way give tourists time to snap pictures or switch driving responsibilities. The spring schedule accommodates tourists with morning and early afternoon departure times. Though Speed Boat Adventures sometimes offers a discounted price online, this Groupon is still the best deal available.
Speed Boat Adventures
Speed Boat Adventures combines the excitement of piloting a speedboat with the ease of a guided tour. Slipping up to 10 guests into the cushioned seats of 13-foot F-13 mini speedboats, guides lead them on tours and communicate via two-way radio and fire beacons atop buoys. For those aged 18 and older, the business requires no experience or boating license to pilot the vessels, which can seat up to three and are equipped with a simple throttle-and-steer system. Swaddling each participant in US Coast Guard–approved life jackets, guides whisk them along 13 miles of the Big Bay while pointing out sites such as aircraft carriers, historic ships of the Maritime Museum of San Diego, and Seaport Village, with the San Diego city skyline as their backdrop.
Being able to drive right up to the sea lions, and then around the maritime museum and the Midway was awesome!IndianaFSL, TripAdvisor, 8/26/12
