The trip was amazing & Captain Nick was awesome! He was very informative about the area, the naval ships we passed, & he kept our wine glasses full. It was a beautiful afternoon and a highlight of our trip. Price was reasonable. Book this excursion!!
A great alternative to larger tour boats

The tour was about right adventure to see the harbor and to get some sense of sailing. Good boat, vety nice captain with a solid skill set of operating the boat. I will do this again next time we are in SD.
Worth it!

It was our first experience sailing. Captain Bry was excellent! She was very informative and made us feel very comfortable. Definitely would do it again!
Way better than I imagined
Tessa_E, Jul 2023
I had a few friends visiting from out of state so we booked this, not truly knowing what to expect. We just wanted to get out on the water and see San Diego. It was way better than I could have imagined. Our captain Nick was amazing and really catered to what we wanted to get out of the trip. He was super knowledgeable about San Diego as well and took photos for us. We brought our own cooler with snacks and champagne and it truly felt like a private experience even though we didn’t book private. We made two new friends and memories that will last a lifetime! Can’t say enough good things! Just book it.
Great sailing experience!

Captain Nick was great. It was a beautiful day and the sailing was very relaxing. Last time we went out of the harbor and I enjoyed that much more. I didn’t realize this would just go in circles. Nick was great and the experience was nice. Just not what I thought I signed up for.

Great Time on the Water!

Our Captain was phenomenal and overall a great experience. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful time on the water. The captain taught us a lot about sailing.
Captain Stew was the best...
Katrina_R, Apr 2023
Captain Stew was the best host. We arrived 25 minutes early and he escorted us to the boat when we arrived at the gate. Our ride was peaceful and Stew had a great personality which made the ride even more enjoyable. I suggest sitting in the princess seat where you can feel the Breeze and feel like a princess lol definitely would recommend riding with Captain Stew to anyone visiting San Diego sails.
Capt Nick makes the trip!

Spectacular. Captain Nick was fantastic. He knew a lot of history and a lot about the area. He was a delight to deal with love the entire time we were out there. Would recommend this company highly.
