“Wow - fantastic experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

Thanks to the crew for providing a fantastic sail around the harbor, non stop beverages and snacks and (best of all) a great overview and history of all we were seeing: sea lions, naval ships, Star of India, skyline...

The crew also did a great job in breaking the ice with other passengers - which can feel a bit awkward. So, under full sail, yes, almost full sail the entire trip, we enjoyed a relaxing and informative perspective of San DIego - even for those individuals I met from San Diego.

Happy sailing!

“Fun Time Sailing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

If you can get a booking, you must do this ! First time I tried sailing and it was great! From departure to the end all was perfect. Great boat, friendly crew members, delicious refreshment and the beautiful blue sky made the stress I have in me go away with the wind. We had a great few hours sailing. The crew members were fantastic, very knowledgable, confident and relaxed Everything was perfect to enjoy this new experience of Sailing for me. I live in San Diego and never done that and now I recommand everyone to try it! And thanks a lot to all Sail Jada crew for this great moment, I really appreciate it.

“Outsanding Sailing Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

The boat is just beautiful, the sailing was smooth and the crew just wonderful. Any worries I had about getting seasick were soon put to rest. Very pleasant sail around the harbor to view the beautiful San Diego skyline, Marine Museum, beaches etc.
The crew was excellent, very competent and friendly and shared a lot of information about what we were seeing. Plenty of beverages and snacks were served throughout the sail.They even passed around sun block. They really thought of everything.
Very comfortable and enjoyable experience. A wonderful time sailing around a beautiful bay.
I would highly recommend them.

“Jada guarantees a fun time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

I was fortunate enough to be aboard Jada twice in a short time period and it is a wonderful summer in San Diego activity. The weather was perfect for a seagoing adventure. With the breeze on your face while you listen to the calm flow of the water, you're sure to feel right at home on the bay. The crew is very friendly and knows this vintage 65 foot yacht forwards and backwards. They are knowledgeable and informative about everything from the marine animals, the other vessels they share the bay with, and the navy. This three-hour tour is complete with blankets to keep you warm, food and beverages for your appetite, and hats for pictures to make you feel like a real sailor or pirate. This crew has a good sense of humor, answers all your questions, and will make sure you have a wonderful time while visiting Jada! It's a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon and I highly recommend it!
