This was a fun, relaxing experience. Our skipper, Sarah, was very friendly and knowledgeable. It turned out to be very educational as she discussed many points about sailing and let us steer the boat. I loved it and would return.

We had a 1 hour sail on the water. I was beautiful! Our Capitan was wonderful and knowledgeable. It was truly one of the highlights of our trip to California. Thank you South Bay for a wonderful memory!

Six of us went on a 90 sail off the coast of Redondo Beach. David, our captain did a great job and made our time on board quite enjoyable. Plus, the weather was great. Highly recommend. Lots of dining choices within walking distance.
