5 awesome California Sea Lion facts!

Posted April 27th, 2017 by ChrisBoone with Comments Off on 5 awesome California Sea Lion facts!

If after our tour you feel that urge to spend more time cruisin’ out on the water be sure to check out our friend’s reliable reviews on inflatable boats at http://www.inflatableboater.com/

Sea lions basking at Bait Barge

Here at Speedboat Adventures we love our California sea lions, which is why bait barge (pictured above) is one of our favorite destinations to hit on the speed boat tour. California sea lions can be found all over but get their name designation because of their extremely large population in the golden state. There is no doubt about it, the sea lion is in love with California and we are too! Today we present to you our favorite facts about the adorable California sea lion:

  1. Sea lions can swim up to 25 miles per hour, that’s more than 5 times the speed of Michael Phelps. Typically recognized for their commendable relaxation skills in sun bathing these guys are great athletes, spending sometimes up to 30 hours straight of hunting and zipping around at remarkable speeds.
  2. Sea lions should be called sea cryin’ as they are known to shed a few tears. If you’ve ever observed a sea lion crying you may be wondering why. It’s actually because they have tear ducts specifically to help remove the salt water out of their eyes.
  3. Sea lions don’t like the Northern Atlantic Ocean. You can find sea lions in bodies of water all throughout the world except for the Northern Atlantic Ocean. The reason for this is a mystery to even scientists as the temperature and environment are compatible with their typical habitat.
  4. Sea lions have a big heart! More and more instances of abandon pups being fostered by other sea lions have recently been recorded. Isn’t that sweet?
  5. Lastly, sea lions are are total brainiacs. As highly intelligent creatures, some have even been taught to understand a simple version of sign language. In rare occurrences they have even been used for military operations.

Sea! We ain’t lion when we say, sea lions rule! Come sea for yourselves!

Mother’s Day in San Diego

Posted May 2nd, 2016 by speedboatsd with Comments Off on Mother’s Day in San Diego


Mother’s Day is just days away now. If you’re still unsure of what to do for mom on her special day you’ve clicked to the right post. We’ve taken the time to plan a whole day of fun that mom is sure to remember you as her favorite for! Let her sleep in today and invite her instead, for brunch at Florent Restaurant & Lounge in the Gaslamp District. There you can indulge in endless mimosas and short-rib eggs Benedict, as she reminisces about when you weren’t even old enough to drink.









After brunch, pamper mom at a relaxing spa at L’Auberge Del Mar where she can enjoy bottomless champagne and even more mimosas while she  takes in the ocean. What better way to say “thank you for taking care of me all these years.” We guarantee she will call you her favorite!







After relaxing for a spell wake her senses up with an adventure speed boat tour! You and mom get to cruise along in your own speed boat on the San Diego bay, following a trusted and cheerful tour guide. Of course we advise waiting until after your buzzes have worn off after all those mimosas!








For dinner, we recommend ending your epic Mother’s Day extravaganza with  Island Prime and C Level Lounge. From 11am – 7pm on Sunday, May 8th, Chef Deborah Scott serves her special 3-course menu for $59.95 for adults and $12.95 for kids. Treat Mom to classic Lobster Bisque, Macadamia Crusted Pacific Seabass or Roquefort Crusted Filet Mignon! We’re salivating just thinking about it!
