We went out for an afternoon/sunset sail with captain Phillips in his restored early 1900’s sloop and he did not disappoint. We had an incredible time the vessel was amazing and he was an great captain and host. His wife Jessica who handled all of the pre-trip details was friendly and gave us excellent recommendations for after the sail. Highly recommended!

Loved our first time sailing for our 35th anniversary on this beautiful sailboat. Learned what sailing is all about. It is an art, combined with the skills of reading and responding to nature. Capt Phillip and his family crew ( a bonus on this day : ) were so knowledgeable and welcoming. It was truly a great afternoon on the bay on a gorgeous and immaculate boat. Highly recommend!!!!!

Our trip around the San Diego Bay surprised us. Not only was it a beautiful boat on which we sailed, the company we kept for the 2.5 tour with Captain Philip left us wanting to return for more. I highly recommend Liberty Sail for anyone interested in a clean and comfortable sail with a knowledgeable and approachable Captain!

Went sailing around San Diego Bay at sunset. Captain Philip was knowledgeable about both sailing and the history of his boat. The bay was beautiful and the Captain gave us a great tour of the ships and buildings. It was a memorable experience and we enjoyed it for our anniversary. You can tell when someone is doing a job versus sharing something they love. Would go again.

Every time we visit San Diego it’s a must to sail with Sail Liberty and the wonderful Captain Phillip !!

Up to six people can sail at once but you can also sail if you are a couple on your own.

Captain Phillip knows the waters like the back of his hand and is flexible about what he takes you to see.

The value is incredible and the experience unbeatable in our view - having sailed again this afternoon we will be back out tomorrow on Sail Liberty.

Don’t miss the opportunity !!

This was my second sailing trip on Sail liberty. A beautiful old school sailboat.
Great trip on the San Diego bay. Sailing under the Coronado bridge was a treat that my visiting friends really enjoyed.
I highly recommend that sailing experience s it gives you a chance to see San Diego bay from a different vantage point.
Thank you again to Captain Philip for a great afternoon.

Phillip was just a wonderful captain/host. We got together for a friends trip (in our 30s) to Imperial Beach and this was a definite highlight of the trip.

His sailboat is just gorgeous. The woodwork, the delicate knit work, the aesthetic was simply to die for. The Liberty was wonderful to sail on and Phillip was fabulous company to have. He’s very easy to talk to and has some great info on the surrounding area. He recommended Mitch’s seafood for dinner and we loved it.

We saved his info for future trips!

Super easy to sign up, free drinks and snacks, very knowledgeable captain. It's not a fast-paced raceboat by any means but a very relaxing trip for anyone new to sailing or just wanting a view of the area from the water. Cruised by the Midway, one of the carriers that was in port, and tons of other boats on the water. Pretty decent price for what you get.

We had the best sailing tour of the bay with Philip, our captain, aboard the Liberty. Only 5 people on board and we sailed the whole afternoon. It was an amazing experience to see the sights without the sound of the motor. Everything was perfect.
