    40' SeaRay Motor Yacht in San Diego - Mission Bay

    Great experience and recommend for your large celebrations!! Reasonably priced! No coolers needed the boat has an awesome large ice chest that requires about 4 large bags of ice. I would recommend this boat for a younger party because to get to the front of the boat may be a little tricky for older people. Justin was an awesome captain and was great for our large group!!

    Chris was a great host and captain! Our group of friends had an awesome time being out on the water for Labor Day to cool off from the heat wave. We got to bring our own snacks and beverages, play our music on the Bluetooth speaker and anchored for a quick dip. 10/10 would recommend.

    This boat was absolutely amazing! It was even nicer than I expected and had such a beautiful layout. The crew was very friendly, the bartender was great with all the people and everything ran smoothly. Ankur helped answer all my questions throughout so I could plan as best as possible. Definitely plan to book this again! Thank you!

The crew went above and beyond, ensuring that we had the best time possible. I did a lot of research to find a reliable, affordable, and fun yacht.

    Chris is an amazing host and an incredible captain. The boat was more than spacious and adequate for me & my guests, as well as clean. Being out on the water with Chris is an opportunity well worth experiencing. Not only does he make sure you’re comfortable but he also makes sure that you are having a great time. The boat is also one of the better boats in the entire area. I recommend him highly for any and all activities.

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.
