Not to mention the relaxing jazz that he chose to play the entire 3 hrs was such a nice gesture... My husband and I will definitely travel with Sail.San Diego again in the near future!!!! It was AMAZING !!! Customer Services x10

What a great day! John (our captain) was very kind and personable. We loved being out on the water and away from the hustle and bustle of San Diego for a few hours. There were plenty of snacks, sodas, beer and water. We met some nice people, as well. We really loved that it was no more than six people. Made it more relaxing. We will definitely be doing this again! And I hope we get to sail with John again!

Amazing afternoon sailing

We booked this excursion because we wanted to do something we had never done before to celebrate our 27th Wedding Anniversary. Well, Happy Captain Greg delivered an amazing sailing experience for us! He pointed out special sightings and provided us with explanations for each. He was friendly, experienced, and gave us great service. The vessel was beauful and fully equipped with more snacks and spirits than we could possibly finish in a 3-hour period. Binoculars and blankets on board added another convenient touch to our experience. Highly recommend them!

Wow what an experience. Great views, good wine and beautiful sun, you can't beat it. The wind was out and we just sailed away. The boat is top notch!

Hey, Thanks for the kind words!! and yes we do pride ourselves on the boat we have purchased and the condition our guests find them. one company like to say their boats are "classic" 1980's with no room in the cockpit are not. And too many people just have a boat and decide to charter it. in reality, only a few that make great charter boats. Now just tell your friends of the great time you had and we hope to see you back for whales watching season. The best time? Jan 5 to Feb 20th.
