We actually purchased this on Groupon as a surprise activity for a Bachelorette Party. This was a FANTASTIC experience - we were taken out by the young couple who owned the business - not only were they kind, but they were knowledgeable, friendly, and very accommodating. I will 100% recommend them (and I don't write reviews often, merely just read... More

I planned a surprise birthday sail for my husband…a private 2-hour tour. Kyle was our captain and he was great. He was clearly skilled (which is really important since neither of us had real sailing experience), he was knowledgeable about the area, he was a good story teller, and he seemed to genuinely care about our experience. For the sailing... More

I booked the 4 hour ocean sail. It was exactly what I had hoped for, and Captain Mike made me feel safe and comfortable for the entire trip. I grinned from ear to ear for four hours. Thanks, Captain Mike for the enjoyable conversation and the perfect day!

My husband and I took a sunset cruise recently and it was a wonderful experience. Including the crew there were 8 of us on board. We sailed with Captain Jeff and Eric and they gave us a brief but through safety instruction, they were very laid back but it was evident they had a lot of experience. The cruise lasted... More

This was the first time my wife and I had ever gone sailing but will not be our last. Captain Joey and crew member Joseph were great and if I could give it more than five stars I would. We did a whale watching tour on a Monday and then a sunset sail on Tuesday. Worth every penny for the... More

Our hotel concierge suggested we take one of the more public tour boats. It would have cost much less but it wouldn't have been nearly as enjoyable. I'm glad we found this tour. Joey and Joseph were our ships crew and they were wonderful with us and our kids. Once we got out into the ocean our son got a... More

Our group of seven (4 adults, 2 children and 1 teenager) sailed in the San Diego bay on a sunset cruise with Captain Jeff and crew member Ali. Captain Jeff is an experienced sailor and provided a lot of information about local aquatic animals and birds plus some local history. Both he and Ali are comfortable with kids, friendly, and...

We enjoyed a 2 hour sunset cruise yesterday evening. Captain Jeff provided a great journey and lots of education about the area and the marine life in San Diego harbor. Ali was a very helpful and friendly crew member who really helped make the trip enjoyable. Two hours is only enough time to sail across the harbor, so don't expect... More
