Our Story

Our story began in 1988 when Sail San Diego was founded by Rod Jones, a sailing enthusiast who decided to turn his passion and sailboat into a business. After a few years of different owners, we decided it was our turn at the helm. Starting with just a name, one small sailboat and a half sunken panga we worked tirelessly to make our new concept successful. Our focus was caring for each customer like family and, in turn, earned their long-standing loyalty. Soon enough, Sail San Diego started to grow. We choose to expand our fleet, offering larger sailboats and different sailing options. The new and improved Sail San Diego now offered guests a unique way to explore San Diego and experience the thrill of
sailing from a first class operation.

Today, after 32 years, Sail San Diego has established its reputation as San Diego's premier yacht charter company. Our award-winning captains and charter fleet now include 3 Catalina 400's and a Vision 42 by Bavaria Yachts.
