My boyfriend and I had an amazing experience as we sailed old san juan on the "chilli pepper" accompanied by the very friendly and welcoming captain, sebastian. We sailed the sunset sail and was served with plenty of complimentary beverages as we enjoyed the romantic scenery and amazing historic sites of bay san juan. I highly recommend this two hour experience for couples and could most definitely be an amazing experience for family quality time as well. We would definitely do this again on our next visit with sailing old san juan!

We found Sail Old San Juan through Trip Advisor. Not only was it a great value, but we had a fantastic time. Sail Old San Juan is owned by the guide/captain, Sebastian, who takes pride in providing a memorable experience. He is a very knowledgeable sailor who sails a 30 foot racing yacht that was converted for passenger use. It has a bathroom, cabin, and sleeping quarters, and seats up to six Sebastian will play your choice of music (or none at all), and has a wide variety of beverages on board. We enjoyed all the amenities for a 2.5 hour sail around Old San Juan in the afternoon. At our request, he took the boat out into the ocean for views from the other side of the peninsula. He had no problem letting us steer and help with sails, which added to the fun for us (and not something you'll find at larger tour operators). He also took some photos for us We highly recommend Sebastian and Sail Old San Juan. Don't hesitate to make a reservation.

Six of us went to Puerto Rico for New Year's. We sailed with Captain Sebastian on January 2nd, and it was the perfect afternoon sail! He was the most affordable of the many options I researched, and fast to respond to reservation inquiries. We sailed with him for four hours in the afternoon. He is so laid back and friendly. We played our own music and brought some food and drinks, but he also has water and beer on board. The waters were too rough to go up the coast to Fajardo, but it was still a sunny day inside San Juan Bay. We parked for a picnic and swim, and then really let the sails up for some fast sailing. Sebastian is very accommodating and lets you be as involved in the sailing as you would like to be (which was minimal for our party). This is a great option if you want a more personalized experience than some bigger boats!
