My wife and I have sailed Phase 3 a few times now. She's built for racing and is a lot of fun. It's got a BBQ abord with a kitchen and plenty of room for friends. I highly recommend giving these guys a try.

Seriously recommend the sunset wine cruise. We got extremely lucky and 10+ humpback whales, a few were less than ~fifteen feet away. If you are prone to motion sickness I'd take something before, but that shouldn't deter you because this was pretty amazing.

This was such a romantic quiet sail. My other half and I really enjoyed ourselves. The other couple with us were great company and our sailer was fabulous. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone visiting Monterey

We were poking around the pier looking for an alternative to the big commercial whale watching trips and were very happy to stumble across Monterey Bay Sailing tucked in the far corner of the pier. The one hour cruise takes you around the bay (so...More

My wife, two kids (ages 1 and 3), and I loved the cruise. The boarding location is excellent - right at the end of fisherman's wharf that has all the restaurants and other goodies. The kids loved seeing the hundreds of sea lions as we...More
