    I can’t say enough great things about Eric and the experience. The boat is a classic beauty sure to impress just about anyone. The captain has the right mix of professionalism and know-how while keeping things comfy and fun. Have no doubt when booking. This is the perfect sailing adventure you’ve envisioned.

    Hosted by such a professional, helpful and kind captain, we had an incredible time on board! The boat is in excellent condition and very comfy, clean and cosy... the perfect place to experience everything ocean has to offer including hundreds of dolphins that we saw on the way. We didn’t want this trip to end. Thank you captain Bill!!!

    Sometimes everything is just right. You know it immediately and you are blessed by it. That’s what this experience was like. It was perfect, and we appreciate all that Captain Bill did and said to make that happen. Couldn’t recommend him more highly 🙌🏻

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. 

To get to San Diego, catch a flight to its international airport, which is close to downtown. Renting a car is a good way to get around, but you can use the public transport system as well. You can also arrive by car on the major highways from other US Cities, or Amtrak train.
