About
Daily sailing adventures aboard 2 beautiful ocean going large sailing catamarans. Help sail, or just relax on an afternoon sailing adventure, or sunset sail. Our Captains are experienced and friendly, but our catamarans are really the stars of the show. My 1st catamaran "Tigress" is spacious, stable and comfortable for larger parties. My 2nd catamaran "Wind Drum" is the Ferrari of the sailing charters. Very fast, exciting and also comfortable. You can charter one of our catamarans privately, or join in, and pay per person. Small groups insure that our tours are fun and informal. After you come aboard, you will feel like a friend going for a sail with friends. We are very non commercial/touristy, and there are no phone #s or signs on our boats. We focus on quality, not quantity. We are of course Coast Guard licensed Captains with over 28 years experience taking San Diego guests out on the ocean. Catamarans are more fun.

Captain Rod was awesome and made sailing his boat a lot of fun. The Wind Drum certainly did not disappoint, as I am sure a lot of us will be chartering this boat again. Thanks for the making my birthday cruise very memorable for all of us!

Took a whale watching charter. Unfortunately did not see any whales but we did see sea lions and one dolphin. The cruise was very enjoyable. It was nice to sail with only 6 people and the captain on the boat. I would use again.

You want an epic sail at sea, then hire captain rod. Want to not have a worry in the world, then hire captain rod. Want to have a seal wave to you at sea, then hire captain rod.
This past weekend went out on the CATamaran for a bachelorette party and had some of the best times out on San Diego bay I have had. Cap. rod was so laid back, chill, your typical san diegian. Like I said for a good time hire captain rod for your day at sea and you won't regret it!

Despite the fact that there were no inflatable party props (you have to BYO props and glitter, apparently), we still had an amazing evening sailing with Captain “Cappy” Nate on board his Fun Cat. We enjoyed fruit that he grew himself in his garden, perfect brownies he made himself - well proved, with a good bake on them - and all the local(ish) beverages you could desire, including diet beer and diet wine for those of you in a festive, yet health-conscious mood. We took a relaxing sail around the bay, made friends with all the new sea lion babies, and learned all about the bay. Cappy Nate kept us regaled with stories of his adventures on the high seas, and we weren’t attacked by pirates, or arrested by the Navy even one time. It is also worth noting the amazing accommodations on board: Whether you would like to stretch out up front with the waves lapping just inches away, pretending like you are Drogon and his fiery brothers flying across the Narrow Sea, or you have skin paler than a White-Walker and need to seek the shade, there is a comfortable place for you to cruise. They’ve though of everything. Need to pee, but worried you’ll miss seeing the only grey whale south of Vancouver? Or that you’ll miss those adorable baby sea lions that could probably slice you up with their milk teeth? Not to worry, they’ve problem-solved it for you, though I won’t spoil the surprise. This really is a full-service-thought-of-everything experience. Definitely would recommend as a way to spend an evening. Even though Captain Nate will probably be snapped up as the next “Most Interesting Man In The World”, we will still try to book another sail with him the next time we are in town.

We have been on whale watching sails all over but none can compare with Captain Rod and his Sail Fun Cat in Dan Diego. Captain Rod, and his dog Sunny, provide a great sail combined with great knowledge of the area, sailing and the sea. There is no doubt that we will return to San Diego primarily to sail again with Captain Rod.

I wanted to do something special for my husband's birthday that would include our closest friends and their families. We got way more than expected on our afternoon/evening private sail! I was answered promptly when I inquired about scheduling and details of the trip. Capt. Rod gladly welcomed our children (ages infant -12) & let them help sail the boat! He had a variety of snacks and beverages available & allowed us to bring on additional items. The sailing allowed us to view the bay from a different prospective since we all live in Coronado. Capt. Rod gave us insightful information & entertaining stories. Once we made it to the end of the bay, the kids we allowed to jump of the boat & swim. We were able to kayak around the buoys and get a close look at the sea lions. When the kids were kayaking, they came within feet of a pod of playful dolphins. This has been one of the best experiences we have had! I would recommend Fun Cat to everyone! Thank you, Capt. Rod, for long lasting fun memories with our friends & families!

We were in San Diego for a Bachelorette party and decided to book a trip with Captain Rod for our Saturday activity - we were all SO happy with the experience! When we walked up to the Tigress I was immediately impressed with how clean and spacious the boat was. Captain Rod provided beverages, brownies, and a fruit plate for us to enjoy and also let us bring our own alcohol. He didn't even mind that our champagne bottles blinged out in glitter were adding a little flair to the galley :) The sail was wonderful - we had a super laid back ride through the harbor and then stopped for a bit to enjoy the sunshine and swim. He was conversational without being overbearing and let us do our own thing, but also patiently answered our many questions. We had an absolute blast - highly recommended!!

I contacted Rod for a bachelorette party and he did not disappoint! We had such a great time on his wind drum catamaran. He was so accommodating from the get-go. He had drinks, snacks and made sure we were having a great time throughout the whole trip. I would definitely use Rod and Fun Cat sailing again and would reccomend him to anyone who enjoys going out on the water. Thanks again captain Rod!!

3 hours with Captain Rod and Randy flew by, and we didn't want it to end. This was an incredibly relaxing sail on a beautiful evening. We saw dolphins, sea lions, egrets, blue heron, pelicans & cormorants. My ten year old daughter loved it so much that we are planning to buy her a little sunfish sailboat and beginner sailing lessons when we return to Connecticut. What a wonderful take away!
Captain Rod is an experienced & knowledgeable sailor, and has been doing these catamaran cruises for over 30 years. I highly recommend him!
Fun fact: Captain Rod bought the beautiful catamaran we sailed on from Bon Jovi.
