Eco Boat Rentals

Eco Boat Rentals is happy to introduce you to the Glow Boat Experience on Pedal boats in San Diego Bay—one of the best Night Date ideas in the area!

Whether planning a date night for a couple or a fun family outing, you’ll love cruising around in your own private pedal boat, enjoying the views of Downtown lights at night! The Glow boat is illuminating 360 degrees inside and outside, and it’s a lot of fun riding it after dark. To complete your experience, it will be a speaker to make your boat rock’n’roll and a cozy blanket for your comfort!

Our Glow Boat tours are one hour long and guided by our friendly safety crew on separate boats. Even though you’ll be part of a group, you’ll still enjoy the privacy of your Glow boat in the big San Diego Bay and breathtaking views.

Limited availability! Reservations required!

We had so much fun last night for the glow in the dark night time pedal boat ride w/ eco boat rentals! The staff is so friendly as they help you get on and off the boat. You don’t have to have any experience with boats at all to enjoy this tour. They untie it as you leave and they catch and dock it for you as you return. They walk you through how to use the boat and help you connect to the speaker for music and all the boats have an awesome disco light. Rus and Kate make sure all the boats are safe while out in the bay so all you have to do is just sit back and enjoy an awesome time with your friends. You can bring food, drinks, and even your dog. My favorite thing is watching the city lights from the water along with all the other glow and the dark boats. I will definitely be back for this again.

Very welcoming and informative staff! We went at 8pm and it was perfecting timing. The boat was fun all lit up and we loved being able to play our own music. The water was so nice being on at night! Would definitely recommend for a date night.

Our glow boat ride tour in San Diego was a wonderful ending to a great day. Hosts are knowledgeable and kept the vibe upbeat for the entirety of the experience. They will give you the basics/directions and allow you the space to make the experience your own as you explore the area with your companion on open water. The disco ball/music/reflection on the dark waves was magical. It is truly a one of a kind activity and we would do it again in a heartbeat 🙂 wish they had one at every port in the states. 12/10 would recommend!
