The sunset, but it was a big disappointment not to go out in the Ocean and just staying in the Bay, where there was no wind! We could have taken a motorboat instead. The captain was great, but the food and drinks options were terrible for the price! No wine!! No fruits, nothing healthy…
icon Response from Host , Aug 2022
Hi Carlos, I'm sorry to hear we did not live up to your expectations. We had a very unusual week of very light winds when you went out with us. Also, we make it very clear that our drinks include complimentary Tecate, Coors Light, Budwesier, Variety of Hard Seltzers, Soda and Water as well as plenty of light snacks to enjoy for FREE while underway. Guests are always welcome and encouraged to bring their favorite drink or food with them during the sail. As for pricing, we are actually the most affordable charter business in San Diego and believe we are still the only company that takes people out for 3 hours versus 2.

The captain said this never happens but we had a mom and baby dolphin swim right up to our boat. We had not gone out to the ocean. Also, the sunset was absolutely amazing.

The sunset sail was amazing! My husband and I did this sail for our anniversary and it was so fun we want to do it again! It was my first time on a sailboat and I thought I might be afraid (especially since I have a fear of the ocean) but not at all! Captain Jake was terrific and I was at ease the whole time. Highly recommend!

We had a great romantic sailing trip. The captain was friendly and the boat was clean and it was stocked with food and drinks. We were out for 3 hours, headed out to the pacific instead of downtown.

The most memorable part of the sunset cruise was all of us being together experiencing the Pacific Ocean. We saw sea lions, pelicans and from afar we saw Tijuana. Our captain was great.!! Thank you Captain Frank.
