This special event is a San Diego classic!

FireworksJoin us on the 4th of July for one of our favorite traditions.  We'll take you on a kayak tour of Mission Bay under the stars, and then...BOOM, BANG, BOOM...the fireworks displays starts. We'll get to see several shows from a distance, including downtown, with the grand finale being our exciting front row seats to the Sea World show!  Afterwards, as we paddle leisurely back to the docks, we may get to see some California sea lions, shore birds, and the bioluminesence--an underwater fireworks show courtesy of Mother Nature.

Your reservation includes an optiopnal BBQ (burgers and hot dogs on the grill) at the shop (5:00-6:30pm) so you can come early and avoid the traffic.  The big dirt parking lots across the street from our shop are the ONLY place on the bay with parkingon the fourth!

This is a great tour for the whole family and no experience is necessary.  Expect to be driving home at about 10:30pm.  In addition to our "what to bring" list (see sidebar), we suggest bringing towels or small fleece "throws", especially if you have kids - it lets them wrap up and be cozy!

Flashlights are a Coast Guard requirement after dark, so bring one. You can purchase them here if you forget. If you have never kayaked before, we suggest you take one of our lessons. Please wear synthetic clothing like nylon, fleece, or polypropylene ( Jeans are not allowed. ) and bring a windbreaker (available to rent from Aqua Adventures for $5).

Starting Time: 7:30 p.m.  Latest check-in is 7:00pm, but we HIGHLY reccommend an early check-in to give yourself time for the traffic.  There are large lots across the street, but on July 4th, there's lots of traffic.  Make it easy - come early and enjoy the beach for the day and a BBQ dinner with us!

Duration: 3.5 hours

Prices: $50/single kayak, $50/paddleboard, $100/tandem kayak.  Do you want to join us with your own sup/kayak?  It's just $30/vessel!

Our tour and lesson prices INCLUDE a 10% fee collected by the City of San Diego to maintain and improve Mission Bay Park.
