This experience far surpassed my expectations and they were pretty high! Took my husband as a special treat as he is a sailor on the East Coast. We wanted something different than his usual experience in a J-22 sailboat and the opportunity to sail in an America's Cup Yacht was too hard to pass up. The entire tour is well organized and run from beginning to end thanks to owners Lynn and Bee who are so personable and accommodating. Is it more expensive than those other tours - yes. Is it worth twice the cost - yes. This is why - it's much more than a sail -it's an educational hands-on experience on a historic yacht!! Arrive 30 minutes early and owner Bee gives you an amazing presentation on the history of the America's Cup and Dennis Conner's background in San Diego and major contribution to the sport. She is a wealth of knowledge and her presentation was interesting for even "non sailors" like myself. Once you are underway on the boat - which is super spacious and comfortable - each person interested was allowed a turn at the wheel and other sailing tasks as often as they wished. Tour itself on water was about 2.5 hrs. and you had a fabulous view of gorgeous San Diego downtown, Coronado and Point Loma to enjoy from the water. Another bonus was that Bee took hundreds of photos of all of us while onboard and sent us a link - FREE!! - immediately after the tour. I would say this is appropriate for ages 7-80? You need to be comfortable getting onto a large sailboat and the movement it involves. Our group was age range 40-75? When we got back we had an impromptu cocktail hour in the office area while enjoying the recent photo show of us all! Lynn and Bee - great job and thanks for a wonderful day on the water and lifetime memory:)
