2021 4th of July Fireworks

Join us at Aqua Adventures on the 4th of July for one of our favorite traditions – Fireworks Paddle Tour! We’ll take you on a paddle 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 downtown, with the grand finale being our exciting front row seats to the Sea World show! Afterwards, as we paddle leisurely back to the docks, we may get to see some California sea lions, shore birds, and the bioluminescence–an underwater fireworks show courtesy of Mother Nature.

We recommend making an evening of it and arriving early, enjoying a picnic – or grabbing a bite to eat at Aquarius next door, come early 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.

4th of July Fireworks Paddle

Please keep in mind this is our most popular event of the year – it will take time to get all participants to get on and off the water. We suggest wearing layers, bringing water and even snacks. Feel free to dress in your favorite patriotic gear!
