Took a combo class there with some friends and enjoyed every minute of it. Captain Tracy and the rest of the staff were both very professional and welcoming. WM

We were booked to sail a private charter with another company. That company did not show up to our reservation. I was left with a crying seven year old that was heartbroken he wasn't going to get to sail on our vacation. I called south coast sailing at 1pm and asked if there was anyway we could sail today.

My wife and I signed up for the ASA101 course and we had Capt. Rick and Capt. Terry as our instructors. Both of them were extremely knowledgeable and made the experience great. Very laid back but professionally done, I would highly recommend SCS to anyone who wants to learn more about sailing. One hint however. Sign up early and get... More

While my friend was the one who made all the rental arrangements, the process was very smooth and the sailboat was in good condition. South Coast Sailing Adventures stayed open an additional hour (normally requires boats to be returned at 5:00pm to accommodate our return. Overall, the operation is run very professionally.

Nothing short of exceptional! I wanted to plan a surprise sunset sail, but the weather had been less than cooperative. At the last minute, the weather cleared up and I called the same day in the morning to see if arrangements could be made for later that afternoon. Capt. Lucy made all the arrangements. She was extremely personable and accommodating!... More

I have always dreamed of sailing in exotic locations around the world. I have been on the ocean for years in the USN and privately on power boats. We found SCS this spring and told the owner Cptn.

I don't do reviews often but every once in long while i just have to acknowledge a firm and particularly a staff member when they just deliver a level of excellence that makes you feel really smart about spending your hard earned cash.
