I booked a sunset sailing trip with captain Rod for my boyfriends birthday, and it was such a great and relaxing time. Captain Rod was generous enough to bring grapes, strawberries, and brownies. There was champagne to pop, and beer and soda to drink. He was there to take pictures at any time, and turn the boat for different views.... More

We are 60 + years of age and decided to take a catamaran afternoon cruise with our dear friends and 2 new friends with Captain Rod and it was the highlight of our wonderful stay in San Diego. My husband has a bum knee and sometimes finds it difficult to get around, but after looking at the reviews we decided... More

We took a 4 hour Sunday cruise that was a break from packing our house for a move. I had no idea how much we needed the break until it was over... beats Valium! Cap'n Rod is very hospitable and it was a terrifically relaxing experience. Most highly recommended~

The sunset sail with Captain Rod was a high point to our 5 day trip in San Diego. We enjoyed the view of the bay and ocean with a close encounter of sea lions and cubs. All of needs were taken care of---food, drink and safety. The captain even captured some great photos of the group. Smooth sailing and easy... More

My friend and I booked the catamaran and kayak combo trip and we are so glad we did. This was the highlight of our trip to San Diego. We ended up having the catamaran to ourselves and Captain Rod was a perfect host. He provided drinks and snacks and it was a very enjoyable day. We got very close to... More

My wife and I honeymooned in San Diego this past July 2013. Captain Rod navigated our catamaran trip, and he provided us with a very memorable evening!! We enjoyed complimentary wine, shrimp cocktails, fruit and cookies. He never failed to point out scenic photo opp's where he could capture beautiful pics of my wife and I!! Contact him if you're...

Captain Rod was a great host, he let us sail the boat, and took us just a few feet from the sea lions. The boat was comfy with plenty of room and lots of food/drink. The kayaking was the best part, with easy to use open pedal kayaks.

Captain Rod was great! The ship is top notch! Clean, smooth, wonderful food. Captain Rod really knows how to make your trip great. The sailing is smooth because it is a catamaran also making it really quiet even if the motor has to run for a minute in the harbor. We had a lot of fun kayaking over to some... More

We had a family outing of 11 on the Fun Cat, from age 6 - 76. Everyone had a most enjoyable time. Rod was an outstanding captain and guide. We could sit anywhere on the boat, dip our feet in the water. We checked out some sea lions on a dock. He let the kids steer the boat. We anchored... More

Rod was a wonderful host to my husband and I and our two young daughters during our sailing adventure last week. Our kids, ages 6 and 9 had a blast taking turns "sailing" the catamaran, kayaking, swimming in the water and seeing sea lions up close! The trip was relaxing and just so much fun! Rod provided a nice variety... More
