Overview

Daily sailing adventures aboard 2 beautiful ocean going large sailing catamarans. Help sail, or just relax on an afternoon whale watching (seasonal), sunset cruise, or on one of our sailing/sea kayaking combo tours. Our Captains are experienced and friendly, but our catamarans are really the stars of the show. My 1st catamaran "Tigress" is spacious and comfortable, and carries our sea kayaks for our combo tours. My 2nd catamaran "Wind Drum" is the Ferrari of the sailing charters. Very fast, exciting and also comfortable. You can charter one of our catamarans privately, or join in, and pay per person. Small groups insure that our tours are fun and informal. After you come aboard, you will feel like a friend going for a sail with friends. We are very non commercial/touristy, and there are no phone #s or signs on our boats. We focus on quality, not quantity. We are of course Coast Guard licensed Captains with over 28 years experience taking San Diego guests out on the ocean. Catamarans are more fun.

Yes, you can get a quote. I think that if you go on their website and ask a question, Captain Rod responds fairly quickly.
