Small-Group San Diego Sailing Excursion

Small-Group San Diego Sailing Excursion

Whether you’re on vacation, celebrating a special occasion or just looking to take advantage of a beautiful Southern California day, this small-group sailing trip in San Diego is a great way to spend time on the water with your loved one or a group of friends. Choose from two sailings – either a daytime adventure in San Diego Harbor or a sunset cruise that takes you out on the Pacific to watch the sunset. Both tours are three hours long.

No matter which sail you choose, your captain will ensure that you have the best possible time on the water. As you admire the views, enjoy the complimentary beer, wine, soft drinks and snacks. If you get chilly, grab one of the provided polar-fleece jackets, blankets, hats or wind-gear. If the sun is too bright, slather on the complimentary sunscreen or don a pair of provided sunglasses. And use the provided binoculars to admire the coastline or look for wildlife! You can even bring your own music to plug into the boat’s surround-sound system.

Please note:
The boat is limited to six (6) passengers. To make it a private adventure, book all six spaces and bring along five friends!

Great time! Out captain was fun, informative, and encouraged us to help sail. I think this is a great value compared to some sailing trips that are only two hours for a similar price!

Highly recommended.

One of the best days!! Captain Gregory was great. Very skilled, friendly, knowledgeable on San Diego, US NAVY and the history. As power boaters we really enjoy the sailing experience. Relaxed!!! The boat was clean, stocked with beverages and snacks. It was just my husband and I as the others had backed out. We don't get a lot of time together and we celebrate our anniversary when we can, this was one for the records. Next year, who knows where we will go- Thank you Captain Greg, we will be back

We were greeted by the owner promptly upon our arrival at the dock, and informed of the days activities to come, including snacks and refreshments. We were quickly paired up with another couple and taken to our very clean boat and introduced to Captain John. During our departure from the docks, we were given the option of touring the harbor around downtown, or heading out to sea. Captain John was very detailed in preparing us for how best to enjoy our day on the boat, including safety instructions. Captain John was also very knowledgable and happy to answer any question we and the other couple on the boat threw at him, and helped make the day very entertaining. We would definitely take this tour again if we were to visit San Diego and wanted to head out on the water.
