I had the pleasure of giving my wife a 60th Birthday present she will never forget. We had a fantastic time sailing the harbor. The crew were great giving everyone an oppertunity to drive the boat and participate in the on deck activities.

My husband, myself and our 12 year old daughter went out in July with Stars & Stripes. We enjoyed the sail. Although, for the most part the various kids on the boat seemed dis-interested. Keep this in mind if you are travelling with children. Our daughter thought it was okay. Don't let me steer you wrong, my husband and I... More

Took my team out for an afternoon on Stars and Stripes and couldn't have had more fun. Great boat, great crew, great team building event. My team came from the four corners of the globe including Singapore, China, Japan, Europe and the US for a meeting and this trip. We all had a great time helping with the sails and... More

Wow - what a great day! I cannot recommend this enough, whether you are an experienced sailor or just out for a bit of sightseeing. The yacht is well equipped, there is plenty of room and if you want to get involved you can, winching, looking out, steering or just giving the crew some banter! Or you can sit back,... More

As a sailor I appreciate a well maintained vessel and great crew. Stars & Stripes USA-11 was a wonderful 3 hour sail preceded by a great orientation and history of the boat. My brother and I had great fun grinding the jib winch and handling the helm for a short period. This is a great value and the pictures provided... More

Our team of 15 took a sail with Stars & Stripes for a team-building activity and had a blast! We all had a chance to turn the wenches and steer the boat- which was an amazing experience. It made you really appreciate both the beauty of San Diego and the coordinated effort it takes to manage a boat like the... More

Went here on a Saturday, was great two hours long. Boat holds 18 people and we all got to be apart of the experience , from driving to bringing up and down the sails ! This is something I would do again we had a 8 and 11 year old and they loved it .

In our opinion you haven't really done San Diego until you get out on the water, and there is no possible way to do that any better than with the wonderful folks at Stars and Stripes USA-11! A real America's Cup yacht that you can sail.... We've done San Diego every way you can think of, from sea parks to... More
