    Max was a great host! Super communicative and accommodative. He was super chill also. I would definitely book with Max again. His boat was also the perfect size for our Bachelorette party of 7 (more could definitely fit!) thanks for a great time Max!

    Everything about this trip was perfect. The communication, customer service and the actual day were above expectations. I highly recommend. The boat was clean and comfortable with lots of places to sit. And the harbor was gorgeous! I plan to book with Jim again in the future!

    We had the best time - for us it was a last minute booking, a spur of the moment decision, but Captain was able to accommodate us and was very easygoing, nice and a great captain overall. Highly recommend renting this beautiful sailboat for a great afternoon!! 10/10

    Hunter and Savannah were incredible! We did a charter for a bachelorette party (12) of us and the boat was perfect. We enjoyed the bay tour and docking in Coronado. Both Hunter and Savannah were very attentive and professional. Highly recommend.

About San Diego

With a pleasantly warm temperature, steady winds, and inviting waters, it is hard to escape the lure of the lively beachside town of San Diego. This beloved coastal city in Southern California is a favorite for many travelers making their way through the highlights of the state. Although many believe that the welcoming climate is the primary reason why people love this place, boating is easily a worthy contender. From a laidback recreational pursuit to more adventurous races, San Diego is a boating city. This pastime is further nurtured by the 70 miles of Pacific Ocean beaches that offer ample playground’ to practice the art of cruising.

The best time of year to visit San Diego is during September and October when the temperatures are still pleasant but the peak tourist season has passed. Summer is the perfect time for warm weather, it never reaches unbearable heat in San Diego, but travel will be more expensive in June - August in the city.
