  • Safe Harbor Sunroad - Come experience the “Catamaran Difference”. We have over 30 years of experience taking guests sailing in San Diego, and you will feel welcome right away on our cats. During our sail we will explore the harbor, and sight see areas such as the downtown skyline, Coronado Bay Bridge, the Embarcadero, and Midway aircraft carrier. We always see sea lions, seabirds, and often dolphins. Since we only take small groups, you’ll feel like you’re just out sailing with friends. Since we truly love to sail, we turn off the motor as soon as possible so you can just experience the quiet of the wind in the sails. Our catamarans are very wide and spacious, and they are comfortable for all ages of guests. There are several seating areas on the boats to find your perfect spot. Of course there are convenient bathroom facilities aboard. If you would like to take the wheel, and feel the power in the sails, you are welcome. We may not be the cheapest option, but my guys are “World Class”, and are paid well. You’ll get a great vibe on the boat right away, and make some great memories.

Additional Information

The unique bow nets of catamarans offer an exceptional experience, allowing individuals to sunbathe, relax, and observe marine life and the rushing water. Their fast and sturdy ocean structure ensures a thrilling, yet comfortable ride, eliminating the swaying and tilting typically associated with seasickness in other boats. Aboard our catamaran, you’ll immediately feel at ease, not just because we genuinely enjoy hosting people but also because our small group setting allows you to avoid crowded spaces. We believe that while being a tourist is great, it’s even better to not feel like one. Our catamarans are fitted with cushioned seats and backrests, making them suitable for guests of all ages, be it children or elderly individuals. They present an ideal option for indulging in a laid-back and carefree day.

Beautiful Experience! - I bought two tickets for my husband and I to enjoy a sunset catamaran cruise on San Diego Bay on Valentine’s Day. Boy I’m so glad I did! We couldn’t have asked for a better experience! I loved the small group size and the value is exceptional. We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day to be out on the water - clear, sunny skies, basking sea lions and wintering waterfowl. It was awesome! Captain Matt was very personable and easygoing. Highly recommend this cruise to anyone wanting to see a different side of our beautiful city!

Incredible sunset cruise - Had an unexpected solo sailing trip with captain Rod aboard his ‘Wind Drum’. Since his captain called in sick and it was my last day in town (and the sailing trip could not be postponed on my end), he spontaneously decided to take me on his own. He was incredibly friendly, welcoming and we had nice chats. Incredibly professional captain who will always make you feel safe aboard. Trip and views were simply mind blowing and will be remembered:). Although there was hardly any wind, his fantastic boat allowed us to pick up some pace with the sails alone. Also great views of downtown after sunset. Really thankful for this unique experience and can highly recommend it to anyone who is coming to San Diego! Thanks again…
