Set sail from San Diego on this small-group sailing tour! Choose from a daytime sail in San Diego Harbor or a sunset sail on the open ocean. This three-hour adventure on a Catalina-style sailboat is limited to just six people, allowing you a comfortable, semi-private experience (or, grab five friends and fill up the whole boat!). Sit back, relax and enjoy the complimentary beer, wine, soft drinks and snacks as you soak in the warm sun or watch it drop into the horizon with the glistening city lights behind you.

Whether you’re on vacation, celebrating a special occasion or just looking to take advantage of a beautiful Southern California day, this small-group sailing trip in San Diego is a great way to spend time on the water with your loved one or a group of friends. Choose from two sailings – either a daytime adventure in San Diego Harbor or a sunset cruise that takes you out on the Pacific to watch the sunset. Both tours are three hours long.

No matter which sail you choose, your captain will ensure that you have the best possible time on the water. As you admire the views, enjoy the complimentary beer, wine, soft drinks and snacks. If you get chilly, grab one of the provided polar-fleece jackets, blankets, hats or wind-gear. If the sun is too bright, slather on the complimentary sunscreen or don a pair of provided sunglasses. And use the provided binoculars to admire the coastline or look for wildlife! You can even bring your own music to plug into the boat’s surround-sound system.

Please note:
The boat is limited to six (6) passengers. To make it a private adventure, book all six spaces and bring along five friends!

While the sunset cruise was overcast, we still had a great time. Kevin was our captain for the cruise. We enjoyed hearing the vaious bits of information about the area as we cruised the harbor. Kevin was very knowledge and capable. The boat was great - clean and compfortable.
