Nick was an excellent captain. We loved it! - Nick was an exceptional skipper. He actually sailed the boat, not just motored around the harbor like other boats. He was polite, had yummy refreshments and was exceedingly knowledgeable about the harbor and what we were seeing. His boat was in excellent condition, better than our own! We were very impressed!

Top of the line - Had a great time with a great captain. Nick Sanchez is very professional and customer service is top notch. Perfect candidate for a raise if sustainable.

A great way to view San Diego! - This sailboat ride in the harbor was a great way to see San Diego. My husband and I were visiting our family, which includes our two grandchildren, ages 7 and 4, and who love boat rides! Captain Stu was very welcoming and did a great job of communicating the safety rules for the trip. He was very knowledgeable and pointed out numerous sites of interest! We all thoroughly enjoyed the day!

Great but you may have company. - Great time with knowledgeable captain. Wish we had known in advance that the cruise would be shared with another group. There were two women also in attendance, pretty anti-social, who only wanted to do selfies on the deck. No interest in sailing or in the sights being pointed out. But the cruise itself was great and again the captain was very engaged and a nice person.
