Riptide Rescue is a Huss Airboat ride, and is aimed squarely at families. The ride features 12 gondolas themed as rescue boats, which can carry 2 passengers each. The gondolas swing round a central arm, and feature an open-top design to increase the level of thrills for riders.

Huss Airboats are typically themed around alligator encounters, but SeaWorld San Diego broke from this tradition to give Riptide Rescue a Coastguard theme.
