About the Sea Races in Grand Theft Auto V

Recently, Rockstar Games introduced a brand new feature in the open world of Grand Theft Auto. This feature is a campaign known as the Sea Race. Basically, it involves players having a blast in the waters, racing against each other on their jet skis, boats, and even submarines! Participating in sea races contributes to the 100 percent completion objective. You can take part in these races with your friends, as well as other players online. Participating provides you a very good opportunity to obtain some RP in GTA V as well. Not to mention, it’s some serious fun!


As far as single-player campaigns are concerned, sea races will be unlocked and become clearly visible on your map after you complete the Hood Safari. There are four different Sea Races available for the single-player campaign in Grand Theft Auto V Online, which have been described below.

  1. East Coast – As you can make out from its name, this race takes place in the East Coast Pacific Ocean in GTA 5. The biggest challenge here is facing the turbulent waves that make it difficult to take turns properly. However, you might be aided in leaping over the rocks that often block your path.
  2. North East Coast – In order to locate this race, you will have to visit the El Gordo Light House. It is significantly longer compared to the previous race and will require you to hone your turning skills first. You can try leaping over the smaller rocks in your path, and dodge the larger ones.
  3. Ranton Canyon – This race is available at the Zancudo River in Blaine County in GTA 5. You will have to deal with narrow waterways in this rather shallow river. Rocks in the water also pose significant obstacles in your course. That said, you simply need to persevere and give it your best. Remember that your competitors are going to experience the same challenges in the race.
  4. Los Santos – This race takes place at the Cypress Flats in South Los Santos. You might recall that you had once accomplished the Hood Safari mission over here. Make sure to make a wide detour around ships in order to avoid running into them. Watch out for the pillars beneath the bridges as well.
