My adult son and I had a great time with Captain Dave sailing out into the Pacific towards Mexico. The weather and wind really couldn't have been better. We had good company with a couple from West Virginia and a mother traveling with her adult daughter. We were treated to sea lions, many types of birds, a submarine launch, and... More

Was invited out on this sail by a business friend. There were about 10 of us on board and our captain was Anthony. Anthony did an awesome job. He's been sailing for 30+ years. He had us non-sailors, helping with some of the sail activities (can you tell that I'm not a pro). He took extra special care of us... More

It was the first time for me to go sailing, We were 7 adults and 2 kids. I booked it over the phone, they charged the kids 1/2 price. We took the 12:00pm trip with captain Kevin, he was super nice. They offer complimentary beer, wine, nonalcoholic drinks and snacks. We connected our phone to their speakers and we played... More

We had an excellent time on our 3 hour sunset sail celebrating a birthday. Captain John was a great host, very friendly and knowledgable. He let us decide where we wanted to sail, in the harbor or ocean. We recommend Sail San Diego to any and all...

He knew the best times and locations for views and photos. Experienced sailor who even gave us some small lessons during the trip. Lots of... More

We had a fabulous sail with Captain John last weekend! The sailboat was very spacious and clean. It was also fully stocked with drinks & snacks for our group. Captain John let us pick where we wanted to go and we had a wonderful time. Once the sun went down they had enough blankets & jackets for all of us... More

I can't recommend Sail San Diego enough! My girlfriends and I were visiting San Diego and booked the Sunset Sail during our visit. We had the pleasure of meeting Captain John and he made us feel right at home the second we stepped on the boat. He created such a fun and memorable experience for us! Thanks Captain John and...

A group of girlfriends went on a sunset sail with John this weekend and we were thoroughly impressed! The hosts were timely, efficient and kind and we were able to request where we wanted to spend our 3 hour sail. The drinks and snacks provided were the icing on the cake. We will definitely come back for another fabulous water... More
