Super relaxing sail with Captain Phillip. His sailboat is beautiful and his knowledge of sailing is immense. You do not want to miss this tour of the Bay. I will do this again and hope others see this review and decide to go. It was better than a spa day if you can imagine that! Lovely trip

A wonderful afternoon with a fascinating captain. We had a lovely sail on San Diego Bay in a classic sailboat and along the way learned the history of the vessel and Captain Phillip's painstaking hand restoration of the boat. He's happy to share his wealth of knowledge about sailing and sailboats in this intimate setting of six guests or fewer. My wife loved riding the waves from the foredeck and tried her hand at steering the boat was Phillip made it ready to return to the dock. No better way to get the feel of sailing on San Diego Bay.

The experience on the Liberty with captain Philip was awesome! It was an very peaceful and relaxing sailing. Captain Philip is very knowledgeable and experienced and made you feel comfortable on his boat. Would definitely recommend this to friends/family and anyone interested in trying a sailboat excursion.
