Had a great time back in May with my wife! Sailing on beautiful San Diego bay at the controls of the boat was amazing! Highly recommend!

My wife and I went on sailing trip for an afternoon while in San Diego. Neither of us were experienced sailors, but the crew had us raising the sails, grinding, and even taking a shift at the helm. Saw dolphins and sea lions as well as great views of San Diego. I would highly reccomend this to anyone interested in spending some time on the water while in San Diego.

Awsome! Captain Lynn, Marnie and the Crew were fun, informative and nice. You can help out and/or sit back, relax and enjoy the numerous sites. Everyone got to steer this beautiful America's Cup IACC racing yacht. Stars & Stripes is incredible, clean and FAST-added enjoyment of the boom being high enough so you don't have to watch your head on every tack and jibe. Amazing how this sailboat would over take other fast (I thought) sail boats like they were standing still. Great views of San Diego. Best sailboat experience in San Diego and beyond and no sailing experience is necessary. Highlight of our trip and my wife, daughter and I definately want to go again when back in San Diego. Well worth the money.

I planned a trip online for my boss, co-workers and myself (7 of us) using only the website and a few emailed questions back and forth. You can only imagine the stress that the unknown has when planning a type of excursion such as this.
All of my concerns were for nothing!!! EVERYONE had a wonderful time and has thanked me continuously since our trip.
As a matter of fact, my boss enjoyed it so much that he recommended to our SVP that our company from 5 different markets do this as a team building event next year as part of our DM Conference.
The staff is courteous and the tour of San Diego is incredible!! I am looking forward to next year with great anticipation!!!

I was able to ride the USA-11 two weekends ago when I was in San Diego and it was SO much fun. The crew is super nice and they explained how everything worked. They let you be part of the crew too! I was grinding for a bit and they took the steering wheel for a while: such a powerful and intense feeling!!! You can also sit, relax and enjoy the views. And the views are amazing. I got a ton of amazing pictures, but being on such an amazing sail boat is amazing... You get to see how they all work together to make the boat sail, INTENSE! Loved it!!
