Sometimes you look around and see so much happening that it’s hard to imagine some people still have a hard time figuring out what to do in San Diego. One activity that might not initially come to mind until you see someone actually doing it, is flyboarding.
Aquatic Aviation provides a 25 minute flyboarding experience for $89. If you’re unfamiliar with flyboarding, it’s a board-like contraption that you step into and strap your feet on. It’s connected to a jet ski which powers it with water. The water shoots out of the bottom of the board, propelling you high in the air above the bay. This amazing experience offers incredible aerial views of Mission Bay and the surrounding area as you balance yourself and move around. Experienced instructors provide you with all the information and training you need to get up in the air and learn some basic maneuvering. Experience the thrill of flying above the water and learning a new skill you may never have even considered trying before. Flying through the air above Mission Bay on a board surely has to rank as one of the top things to do in San Diego.
The cost of the experience covers all of the equipment you will need and rental of a lifejacket, wetsuit, and helmet. Aquatic Aviation is the most experienced flyboard company in the United States and have trained more than 5,000 customers since they opened in 2012. Show up early for your reservation to check in and make sure you are ready to begin flying as soon as possible. You will need to bring an ID to prove you are 15 or older, a swimsuit, a towel, and probably a change of clothes so you won’t have to stay wet all day. Once you’re all suited up you begin your 25 minute experience with 10 minutes of instruction that will get you familiar with balancing and maneuvering on the flyboard. After instruction you have 15 minutes of flying on your own. The instructors are able to train even the most novice flyboarders, so even if you’ve never set foot on a surfboard or skateboard, chances are you can successfully do one of the most fun things to do in San Diego.
Funseekers get the chance to purchase a FunGig that lets them and an in-the-know local take turns flyboarding. Funbassadors can create a FunGig that begins with a flyboarding session and culminates with another fun activity in Mission Bay.
