Great experience with an experienced, yet approachable captain. - Captain Liz and her sailboat were much fun. There is something magical about being on a small sailboat powered by the wind, and Liz demonstrated it. She was great with our kids, allowing them to steer the ship and hoist sails. She was also very happy to share her knowledge, has great pride in her ship, and clearly wanted us to have a great time. I think it will be a forever memory that will bring a smile to our faces. Thanks, Captain Liz.

Great! - Our private morning sailing trip was a tranquil escape that exceeded expectations. The journey unfolded as a perfect blend of relaxation and enlightenment. Captain Liz not only navigated the waters with skill but also shared insightful information about the surroundings, turning the trip into an educational experience. The serenity of the open sea, coupled with the captain's knowledge, created a harmonious atmosphere. From the gentle sway of the boat to absorbing interesting facts, every moment was a soothing embrace for the mind and soul. A morning well spent, leaving us with a sense of tranquility and newfound appreciation for the art of sailing. Highly recommend for those seeking a peaceful and informative maritime escape.

Great Thanksgiving Day Sail! - Our family of 6 adults had a wonderful time sailing with Liz on Thanksgiving Day! Communication prior to our sail was great & Liz was very fun & laid back during our holiday sunset sail. We were able to move around the boat freely & had drinks & a snack bucket to choose a few snacks from included. Liz even had a couple of blankets for our use. It was a beautiful way to end our holiday together. I would recommend sailing with Liz if you're in the San Diego area!
