Great experience

Captain Nick provided an interesting and informational explanation of the San Diego bay plus excellent photo locations. Thank you.
Best time on the water...

I surprised my wife with this sunset sailing experience and I have to say I was very pleased as well. Stuart was an awesome captain. He explained parts of the sailboat to us that we did not know and he was very informative about the area in which we sailed. We all had such an amazing time, relaxing on the water, no sound other than that of newly met friends and the breeze pushing us along. We even got to see some sealions. My wife and I had a wonderful time and would recommend this event to anyone wanting to sail and chill. Thank you team...

Capt. Nick made what was our 1st Sunset Cruise truly amazing! He was so engaging and informative! He made all 3 couples feel very safe and relaxed. We so enjoyed our conversation and the knowledge he shared about our sailing area! We will certainly book with Capt, Nick in the near future! Thank you Capt Nick for going Above and Beyond!

The Absolute Best
Nancy_H, Dec 2023
The Captain Stu was great!! He had so much knowledge (plus white wine & chocolates!!). There were only 2 other people on this off-season trip with us so it was so intimate & perfect. We were able to see sea lions up close & personal plus a beautiful sunset while sailing. Totally recommend this experience!
Relaxing Experience
Lodia_A, Nov 2023
Beautiful experience. Our Captain name was Stew . He was very informative and friendly. They provided wine, chocolates, and water. Bringing your own drinks and food is encouraged. Smoking is not allowed, so if you’re a smoker, I am so sorry to break the news. The California sunset was beautiful, we went from 3-5PM and it was perfect timing to watch the sun setting. Overall a great relaxing experience. Highly recommend!
Great time

Don’t think twice. Just BOOK!
Franklin_D, Nov 2023
I’ve been so San Diego so many times and I have to say that this experience has been a true highlight for me. Nick was so attentive from the second we met at the entrance by introducing himself and walking us to the sailboat. His attention to detail is on point and he truly makes the experience an unforgettable one. Thanks Nick for being such a great captain! I’m definitely recommending this to all of my friends and family. - btw (I’ll never do a horn blower or huge boat in SD. This is the way to do it.)
Best two and 1/2 hours of my San Diego trip.
Donald_A, Nov 2023
The smooth sailing by a knowledgeable and friendly captain was much appreciated. The views of the San Diego skyline as the sun went down were magnificent.

Loved seeing the sea lions, captain Stu was knowledgeable and a great host. The sunset was beautiful and seeing the city lit up was pretty. All the Navy “traffic” was very interesting. All in all it was well worth it!

It was so awesome! My husband and I booked this while on our honeymoon, and it was the perfect addition to our trip. Our captain was knowledgeable and friendly, and the atmosphere was comfortable while also feeling elevated. We loved it and would recommend to anyone coming to the SD area!
Best money we’ve ever spent!
Savannah_S, Oct 2023
This was such an incredible experience! Captain Nick was so accommodating and showed us the best spots, including a deck of seals, a view of downtown lit up, and some of the famous ships at the port! He even offered to take our photo at the prime spots and provided us a blanket when it got cold! Perfect date night, we’d pay to do it again!!
