My boyfriend and I did a two hour private tour and it was fabulous! WE were treated like royalty and the tour was wonderful. Will definitely do it again! Captain Mike was awesome.

We were super excited about this tour. Found a Groupon so it was even a better deal. I called to ensure we'd get to go during good wind times and that there would be champagne (even the cheap stuff) on board. We were greeted by the captain and were told this was his first tour with this company. It was... More

My wife and I rented a private sailing sunset (2hr) tour with their captain Charlie. We had the option of the city bayside tour or back bay tour. We opted for the back bay tour and it was very interesting. If you are new to San Diego I think you might prefer the city bay tour better however we have... More

My friend and I wanted to see the city from the bay, and this tour did not disappoint! Even though it was overcast we still.had a great sunset and enjoyed our wine and cheese.

My wife and I recently had our 3-year wedding anniversary and decided to go on a sailing trip. Jeff was our captain and along with 3 other people, we sailed out into the Bay for a great 2 hours.

We spent two hours out on the water with Captain Charlie. It was wonderful, he was very knowledgeable about the things we could see including the navy seal/dolphin training base, air craft carriers, local bridges, Star of India and the maritime museum to name a few things we saw. There were drinks (non-alcoholic, beer and wine) and snacks available if... More

My husband and I took our niece on a 2-hour sail. She gave it the ultimate compliment: "I am normally bored with everything, and I wasn't bored once!" Captain Curtis did a great job of pointing out wildlife, navy vessels, etc. He was engaging, fun and knew what he was doing. I would highly recommend this sail.

If you envy the very rich who sail out on small, elegant yachts, this in your chance to pretend - for a few hours anyway. The smaller boats and limited passenger list makes this a real treat.

Customer Service was wonderful, and we had 2 wheelchairs and you were so accomodating. Everyone had smiles, and our skipper for the seal tour was awesome. We will be back next year.
