Best time on the water... - I surprised my wife with this sunset sailing experience and I have to say I was very pleased as well. Stuart was an awesome captain. He explained parts of the sailboat to us that we did not know and he was very informative about the area in which we sailed. We all had such an amazing time, relaxing on the water, no sound other than that of newly met friends and the breeze pushing us along. We even got to see some sealions. My wife and I had a wonderful time and would recommend this event to anyone wanting to sail and chill. Thank you team...

The best sunset tour in SD - We did a tour with Captain Nick and it was truly spectacular. To see the downtown skyline from the water was incredible and then to add to it, we saw seals as well as dolphins! We had six girls for a bachelorette and I couldn’t recommend this tour anymore! Just the easiest best experience all around. ❤️❤️

THE BEST SUNSET SAIL - The best way to enjoy sunset in San Diego is always on the water. Beautiful sailboat, wine and chocolates. Captain was kind and easy going. Shared his yrs of experience sailing and sailed us by sea lions. Also took lots pics for us to capture the killer sunset. 10/10

Needs a Captain who talks and knows the area - Skipper was terrible. Didn't point out anything we were passing and seemed annoyed when we asked any questions. Didn't seem to know any history of the area or sites and was silent most of the time. Taken lots of small groups cruises and a good Captain/Guide is key. This was the worst despite beautiful scenes and a nice boat.
