Can not say enough good things about Carole, the crew, and the boat. From the first call and e-mail exchange, Carole was helpful and informative above and beyond what we could have asked for. She always returned calls/e-mails right away and answered questions we didn't know we had! She was flexible and accommodating while we worked out the food/drink details.... More

I love the Jada for cruises and charters. Captain David is so fun and an expert in maritime history. Carol is the very nice and caring owner of the Jada who always is a joy to speak with.

The evening was perfect -- the lights of the city shimmering on the water, the sounds of the waves gently slapping against the sides of the ship as it cut through the waves, the freshness of the ocean breeze. What a beautiful city San Diego is, especially from the water. Sailing the bay this way was so relaxing. Great experience!

I was on Jada a few months ago and it was such a great experience. The view of downtown and its surrounding areas was outstanding, and the captain really knew his stuff regarding the history of the bay. JADA is over 70 years old but is in beautiful condition. If you're in San Diego this is the best way to... More

Jada is a beautiful wooden yacht and her captain is knowledgeable about the city and bay's early and military history. The crew were sharp and hospitable, and a natural history docent taught us all about gray whale life and behavior. We lucked out and came upon a baby gray whale that entertained us for about 20 minutes. Then an adult... More

Thanks to the crew for providing a fantastic sail around the harbor, non stop beverages and snacks and (best of all) a great overview and history of all we were seeing: sea lions, naval ships, Star of India, skyline... The crew also did a great job in breaking the ice with other passengers - which can feel a bit awkward.... More

The boat is just beautiful, the sailing was smooth and the crew just wonderful. Any worries I had about getting seasick were soon put to rest. Very pleasant sail around the harbor to view the beautiful San Diego skyline, Marine Museum, beaches etc. The crew was excellent, very competent and friendly and shared a lot of information about what we...

I was fortunate enough to be aboard Jada twice in a short time period and it is a wonderful summer in San Diego activity. The weather was perfect for a seagoing adventure. With the breeze on your face while you listen to the calm flow of the water, you're sure to feel right at home on the bay. The crew... More
