Our Sail San Diego experience was the highlight of our recent trip to San Diego because of Captain Mike. We thoroughly enjoyed our time... More

Still relatively new to San Diego, we wanted to try something new to experience the city and thought of a boat ride of some kind. We were thoroughly pleased with our choice of Sail San Diego. For three hours we sailed around the bay and ocean (past point loma), learning a lot about sailing and the area, and being entertained... More

They have great captains (Greg and Art are both terrific) and the boats are excellent and well maintained. We saw many whales when we sailed with Greg last year. This year we brought our two...

We had a great day sail. Art was a great captain and made us feel at home and comfortable. My husband was very interested in learning about sailing and he had plenty of opportunity to help out. My 2 teenagers also helped steer and enjoyed just hanging. We made it down to Coronado and saw lots of marine life. The... More

We heard about Sail San Diego from a friend who has sailed with them twice. We were so happy with our experience sailing. The boat was nice and the captain was great. The captain let our children take turns "steering" the boat and his demeanor was perfect with our group of children (4 of them ages 6-13.) We saw seals... More

My husband and I celebrated 21 years together in San Diego. Our Captain Kevin was a great host and we would recommend Sail San Diego to anyone. The weather was perfect and the boat was smooth sailing. Valerie and Al
