This was an AWESOME adventure!!! I’ve been a resident of San Diego for over 23 years & decided to do something special to celebrate my Best Friend’s birthday . Although I have enjoyed the gorgeous San Diego Bay from the shores of Shelter Island, Coronado Island, Harbor Island, Point Loma and Downtown San Diego, it doesn’t compare to the absolutely stunning views from a sail boat floating on the winds of the bay !! It’s truly something that she experienced by anyone that loves the beauty of the ocean. Our Captain Trevor was so skilled at sailing that it was a smooth & gentle 3 hours of peaceful , beautiful fun :) . I highly recommend this adventure on the water ! The other passengers were delightful and really added to the fun . My Best Friend and I enjoyed a day that we will never forget! Thank you Trevor and Sail San Diego!

Very nice walk and wonderful captain. The sunset and views of evening San Diego are stunning. They swam past the fur seals that were lying and basking on a platform in the ocean. The cost of a boat trip includes sparkling water, beer, wine, chips, nuts. We were delighted with the walk.

Great evening afloat!!

Happy Cap’n Greg was a true professional, and a delight. He obviously knew his sailing and, as we discovered as the trip progressed, his history, geography, and US Naval ship recognition as well. His knowledge, quick wit, friendliness, skill made the evening a real treat. Definitely ask for Happy Cap’n Greg when you book with San Diego Sails!!
