John was our host and made the time sailing even more enjoyable. The sailboat, refreshments, service and sailing were some of the best... More

It was such a great day, we want to go back next month to show my husband what a great experience it was! Captain John was great, and even was patient with my 4 and 8 year olds. We felt... More

My daughter and I had a great time with Capt. John on a sunset sail. We sat in all the fun seats on the boat, and he even let me take the helm for a bit. It was a great time! My (teenage) daughter even put her cell phone away for it, especially when we sat in the beanbag seats... More

Captain Greg took us on a fantastic whale watching cruise. He put up with the endless questions from our kids and got us up close with a large pod of whales. Highly recommend a day out with Sail San Diego.

Had a great sail with Captain Art. An excellent seaman and tour guide. We had a great day of sailing and even found a couple of whales to watch. Beverages and munchies provided and the boat was as clean as a boat could possibly be. What a wonderful day. Thanks Capt. Art !!
