More detailed description >


Step aboard this custom built rigid inflatable boat for a Bay tour like no other. This boat was patterned after the same RIB's used by Navy Seals.

These boats give you the opportunity to see the Bay from what we call "see level", while still having the potential to cruise at high speeds.

You'll be able to explore close to shore, see the sights of San Diego Bay and Mission Bay at your speed, or relax and let your captain take you on an unforgettable tour of San Diego's bays and coastlines.

"Two things stand out. Russell, the captain of the boat was sensational, friendly, knowledgeable, flexible and fun. A first-class experience. And Lindsay the Cloud 9 helper is the best on-line assistance person I have ever experienced. What a jewel!"
