A couple girlfriends and I met in San Diego for the weekend and decided to go sailing with Sail San Diego based on a recommendation from another friend. It was well worth it! We had a wonderful 3-hour sail in which we explored the bay, seeing dolphins and sea lions (trained by the Navy), the downtown skyline, and other San... More

I reached out to Michele prior to my sailing adventure and she was absolutely amazing! She went out of her way and was more than accommodating. My girlfriend and I went on the Sunset Cruise over v-day weekend, which is a perfect way to relax in San Diego's gorgeous weather. Art was our captain/comedian for the trip. He is extremely... More

We went on both a whale watching trip and on a sunset cruise. Both outings were awesome. Happy Captain Greg did a great job of finding whales. He was very entertaining and knowledgeable. On the sunset cruise, Captain Peter was very professional and knowledgeable. Both boats were very nice, well stocked and clean. I highly recommend Sail San Diego for... More

Captain Tom took us on what was supposed to be a three hour trip. We motored out of the bay, passing views of playful dolphins and... More

We were visiting San Diego for the first time as a family (me, my wife, and two teens, 17 and 14), and happened to be there over my wife's birthday. She asked if, as a celebration, we could find a cruise, and it was our good fortune to come across Sail San Diego. Greg, our captain, was great. It was... More

Fantastic trip. Captain Greg did a great job getting us out to the whales and close to them,(but not too close as to harass them). Beautiful 40' sailboat, perfect for small groups. Would do again in a minute!

We have gone on two afternoon cruises with Sail San Diego and they were both great experiences. Reservations were handled efficiently and easily. Captains are professional, knowledgeable and skilled. They told great stories and made us feel welcome. They provide snacks and every kind of amenity you could want. Thanks for the fantastic cruises!

We saw several whales as well as dolphins and pelicans - the amenities on the boat were great! I highly recommend this activity if you are in San Diego - and this company in... More
