Latest 5-star Yelp review

So proud to keep getting 5-star reviews! Here's the latest from 9/25/17. I think this time, the sea lions may have had something to do with it;)

Had a wonderful time and an amazing tour with Captain Phil. Very knowledgeable and highly skilled in navigating the sail boat.  The vessel was beautiful. Captain Phil has over 50 years of experience that really showed as we navigated through the waters. He even got us close up shots of sea lions that were sleeping on various buoy's and docks. I would definitely recommend this tour!

Weekday Sunset Special

As all good things must come to an end, so, alas, must summer!  This means an earlier sunset time, especially once daylight savings takes effect. Never fear!  We will still be offering sunset sails on a daily basis.  This calls for a slight change in our schedule, so that from Sept 25, weekday sails (Monday-Friday) will be 2 hours in length, starting at 5:00, then as winter draws nearer, departures will eventually be at 3:00. The sunset doesn't get any less beautiful, no matter the season, so let's have happy hour early, and afloat!

Team Building Program

Turn your staff into a crew! We are pleased to announce that we have launched a team building program for small groups. Captain Philip will direct your staff to steer, hoist sails, serve drinks, and perform general duties.  

By the time your staff disembark, they will be more unified and have improved their capacity to work together - and have a lot of fun in the process!

Gorgeous sunset sail!

My husband and I went out on the sunset tour last evening. It was an unforgettable cruise. There were only two other passengers on the tour with us as we sailed around San Diego harbor on a beautifully refurbished sloop. Captain Phil was friendly and engaging and knew just when to let us enjoy the sunset, the water and sound of the sails in the wind. I would recommend this tour to anyone!
