Beautiful sail!
Kim_S, May 2023
We had a very enjoyable experience (even though Mother Nature did not provide the "sunset"). Passing by the naval ships, Coronado, under the bridge, and by Seaport Village was spectacular. Also, very beautiful to see the city lit up at night. We enjoyed our conversations with Cpt. Phillip too.

Captain Phillip was a very accommodating and pleasant host. The whole experience was a nice relaxing retreat, another perk of our fine city. Can’t wait to go out again.
Beautiful sunset sail
Jennifer_M, Mar 2023
A beautiful ride in the bay getting to see the San Diego shoreline at sunset. We enjoyed the ride and the company, it was a great group of people.
Nice trip
Daniel_S, Mar 2023
We had a very nice time. The boat is beautiful, the captain is friendly, we saw dolphins and sea lions. We had a great view of the city skyline at night. Overall we would recommend. Our only recommendation is that they play some soft music or something because at times when the wind is dead and the conversation stopped it felt like we were just floating is silence.
