Went on the sailing with my husband had an awesome time- 3 other people on the sailing boat- Capt Jake is an AWESOME Captain funny. Entertaining informative and a safe efficient fast acting captain really tries to make your experience great- we got to see Dolphins just hang around the boat and he stayed safely away but close enough to see them- ready to do it again soon-

This was so much better than we anticipated. Captain Tom was engaging and fun, we ended up with a really nice group. You should really let people know that the cruises are limited to groups of six. That made all the difference in the world

We had a great time in Sail San Diego vessel. With Greg being our captain, we enjoyed every bit of the tour, who took around the coast while sharing some fun facts and stories about abt SD. We spotted a pair dolphins and some sea lions which became the highlight of our tour! It was a beautiful clear day to go for a sail. Witnessing the Sunset fall on the skyline of San Diego with our family and friends was every bit relaxing and worth the money!
