An easygoing boat rental San Diego experience. No full payment upfront.

Host a BYOB celebration with one of the few legitimate boat charter operations in Mission Bay. All you need to do is pay a $189 deposit to book and we'll handle the rest. Boat, captain, speaker, water toys, ice, and coolers included.

This is my second time with Waterhorse and both times were an absolute blast. The crew is what makes it so great.
