4th of July Fireworks Paddle

July 4, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

- $15.00 – $100.00

Aqua Adventures 4th of July Paddle on Mission Bay

Join us at Aqua Adventures on the 4th of July for one of our favorite traditions. We’ll take you on a paddling tour of Mission Bay under the stars, and then…BOOM, BANG, BOOM…the fireworks displays start. We’ll get to see several shows from a distance, including Southern California’s largest firework show BIG BAY BOOM, with the grand finale being our exciting front row seats to the SeaWorld San Diego show!

Afterwards, as we paddle leisurely back to the docks, we may get to see some California sea lions, shore birds, and possibly the bio-luminescence–an underwater fireworks show courtesy of Mother Nature.

Independence Day California Style

Please feel free to arrive early, have a picnic and avoid the traffic. The big dirt parking lots across the street from our shop are the ONLY place on the bay with parking on 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.

This is our most popular event and can sell out.

We will launch from Aqua Adventure’s dock at 8pm sharp, firework shows begin at 9pm, SeaWorld’s show starts at 9:40pm & lasts 15 minutes. Please make sure to arrive no later than 7:30pm.

Can’t make it on Fourth of July? SeaWorld has extended their firework show through the weekend and in honor, we will be paddling under the fireworks all weekend! Check the calendar for more details.


*Please note, firework displays and events are subject to change and cancellation.
