We have booked a trip for today, unlock was on our side. As there were no winds... But we really had fun and laughs with Captain Harrison (I would recommend him, if you want to see a comedian in the sea :D). Not only that he entertained us, but this guy has a full history of area.

Our sail was amazing. Captain Mike was very knowledgeable and welcoming. Each person in our family was offered to sail the boat and my little ones really enjoyed all of the snacks. Thank you Sail San Diego for helping our family to create new memories that will last a lifetime ♡

The experience was memorable form beginning to end. There was a beautiful breeze the afternoon of our sail. Art, our captain, immediately made us feel at ease with his vast knowledge and experience sailing. He also shared a wealth of information about the area as we sailed along.

These guys are true professionals and they have clean, modern boats. We went on a sunset sail clear out to thee mile buoy and around San Diego Harbor. Awesome trip!

This was a wonderful 3-hour cruise. I would suggest it to any of my friends or family. The captain was very nice and made sure everyone was comfortable and having a good time. Other crew on the dock that saw us off and welcomed us back were also very, very nice.

We took my mom out for a three-hour cruise since she loves sailing. The day did not disappoint! Great sailing out in the ocean, interesting stories shared by Captain Curt, nice amenities on the boat. Was a great trip and one I would highly recommend!

I'm a two-time client, having taken my kids on these outings. Even if we didn't see any whales (which we did both trips), the multi-hour sails are calming and interesting. The company procures ace captains who are friendly as well as expert in locating whales. Highly highly recommend.
