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

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
