What To Expect

When it’s time to take advantage of your boat rental, head down to Emerson Street in San Diego to check in. You may want to come about twenty minutes before your time to make sure you find parking as the area is a tourist area and can be quite busy.

After you check in to get your pedal boat or glow boat, get ready for a fun adventure on the water. Each boat can hold up to three adults and one small child or two adults and two kids, making it a great pick for families or couples. Because this is a rental, how you spend your self-guided time on the water is up to you. The rental crew explains how to use the boat and gives some safety tips before you go.

On the water, take in sights of San Diego from a different perspective than on land. If you booked the glow boat, it’s illuminated 360 degrees inside and outside, and it features a speaker and a disco ball.

After your cruise, come back to the original meeting spot.

Fun paddle around the harbor
Rebecca_P, Sep 2023
We a great time paddling around the bay with my pup. It was a little bit of a workout but it was perfect weather to be out on the water. Parking is difficult to find on the weekends so I would recommend adding on an extra 30 minutes to find one. Eco boat rental staff are nice and accommodating.

Thank you for sharing your experience and enjoyed Night view of Downtown San Diego with us!
This was rad!!!
DOConnor, Apr 2023
My husband and I had such an unexpectedly amazing time doing the Night Glow boat! It was so much fun to peddle past the boats and yachts in the harbor on the way out to the ocean. My head was on a swivel checking everything out! The lights from the boats around you make for such a fun atmosphere. The view of the skyline at night was GORGEOUS! I can’t fully describe why this activity was so joyful. My husband and I were cracking up like little kids while peddling around in the ocean at night. The Bluetooth speakers on each boat made for such a great vibe! We will 100% be doing this again!
Response from Host, Apr 2023
