    What to Expect
    Whether you’re on vacation, celebrating a special occasion or just looking to take advantage of a beautiful Southern California day, this scenic sailing trip in San Diego is a great way to spend time on the water with your loved one or a group of friends. The comfortable boat is limited to 12 passengers, making it a cozy small group experience.

    We did the Sunset Cruise with Anthony, "the Happy Captain". It was a terrific time - he is a masterful sailor and the winds that day were great - we got some great time out on the open ocean which us Colorado people loved. Anthony is a credit to his trade - he loves sailing so

    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. We also put our total cost right upfront. others (SDST) likes to hide behind a 16% service fee/ port tax. Oh, BTW there is no sales tax on service in CA. 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.

    We took the 3 hour sunset cruise. It was great. It got a little bumpy when we headed out of the harbor but tolerable. Once back in the main area the sailing was very smooth which was the majority of the trip. We probably took over 50 pictures as there was beauty everywhere.

    We got it! Thanks for doing a San Diego sailing tour with Sail San Diego! We completely agree -- in addition to the wildlife, gorgeous weather, and beautiful skyline, the military action is another part of the awesome experience that is San Diego Bay. See you again soon! - Pete, Sales Manager
