Great sunset sail
Sep 2021 • Couples
We had Bogart as our Captain. He was fun and energetic the whole time. He took great pictures of us and talked to everyone the whole time. He made the experience very fun. It was totally worth it. We were on the boat exactly 3 hours. We were with 2 other couples. Plenty of room.

Lovely San Diego Evening
Sep 2021
Four of us went on Sail San Diego's Sunset Sailing Excursion while visiting the area and had a fantastic time. Captain Jared was skilled, informative, and accommodating throughout our trip, providing interesting information about the landmarks along the San Diego coastline. We brought our own wine and snacks, along with a much-needed blanket and sweatshirt once the sun started to go down. We had two other people on our boat for a total of 6 passengers --- it was easy to chat and wasn't awkward (although I guess this is dependent on the individual personalities of the participants).

Highly recommend this excursion and felt that it was good value for a semi-private experience on a lovely boat that was well managed.

Best part of our vacation!
Sep 2021
Looking for an unforgettable adventure? This is it! Of all the things we did while in San Diego, this was the one I enjoyed the most. The weather wasn’t the best as there was overcast, but I didn’t really care because the experience was incredible and it was so peaceful.

The directions or the marina were easy to follow as there are photos the clearly direct you where to go.

Captain Bogart was AWESOME! He explained everything regarding safety and what to do in case of an emergency. He played a variety of good music and made sure everyone was comfortable, had drinks, and had snacks. It was my first time being on a sailboat so I had a lot of questions and he happily answered them all. He described areas as we sailed by and gave us an excellent history lesson regarding Point Loma.

If I ever go back to San Diego, I would definitely book the sunset cruise again. It was an amazing adventure!

Great way to spend 3-hours!
We had a lovely time on the sunset cruise. Wonderful way to spend a few hours, see and learn about the city and watch a beautiful sunset. Our Captain was engaging and entertaining and got us involved in the actual sailing of the boat which was fun!

Magical Sunset Sail, every time
Aug 2021
This is my second time in a year doing the sunset sail. First time with Captain Frank and the second time with Captain Greg. Different experiences and sails but equally fun and lovely. The views of the city are spectacular and you can participate in the sail as much as you like. I can't wait to come back next year, maybe in July when it's warmer, and do a day sail and jump in the water! The folks at Sail San Diego were really nice when I called them right before the sail.

Sailing in San Diego!
Aug 2021
We went out on 8/23/21 with a small group sunset cruise. Our Captain Trevor was great! He was fun, friendly and knowledgeable. The boat was perfect size for our group, just 6 all together.

The ride was at times exhilarating and relaxing. A good mix of both. They had snacks and beverages available, and it was nice to have a below deck with bathrooms.

We were lucky to have perfect weather and see an amazing sunset. So glad we chose this activity while in San Diego. It was convenient also, as we were staying on Shelter Island and was so close. Definitely tell others about it and do it again!

Nice bay tour
Aug 2021
Of all the days we were in San Diego, we picked a cloudy one for our sunset sail. In spite of this, it was an enjoyable time. We had to use the motor due to low winds. Jared, our guide, did a great job with what he had! He was very easy-going and was nice to get to know the short time we were on board. Snacks and drinks were provided. My husband and 24 and 27 year old children went with us.
