A Boat Tour on the Beautiful San Diego Harbor

Escape the hustle of the city without leaving San Diego. Get out on the water, take a breath, and relax. This is your time to feel the famous SoCal sunshine, ideal prevailing winds, and calm waters in our unique protected marine environment. On our San Diego boat tours, keep your eyes open for regular sightings of sea lions, dolphins, and, if it’s the right time of year, breaching whales.

More time on the water.

Our 3-hour Day and Sunset Sails offer more time on the water than any charter company in San Diego.

Everything is included.

Complimentary beer, soda, and snacks are included with every charter, so all you have to worry about is your SPF.

Safe, comfortable boats.

Our meticulously maintained fleet is helmed by US Coast Guard-certified captains.

More Sailing, Less Stress

Great Way to Start the Day! Morning Sail

We did the morning tour and this was one of the best San Diego experiences we have done. From start to finish everything was easy. The sailboat was beautiful. Check in was quick and on time. Our group of four found the experience awesome. We live in San Diego and saw so many things we had never seen or even knew about. I'd definitely do this trip again.

Sail Away | Sail Away! Morning Sail

We went on the morning sail and it was a perfect way to start the day. This great deal allowed all 3 of us to have the most memorable 2 hours of our trip to San Diego. Wish we could’ve sailed all day! Our capt Greg was fun and knowledgeable and we had the time of our lives. Thanks for the memory Sail San Diego!

What a Wonderful Morning Morning Sail

What a wonderful group to work with. We had the perfect morning, saw so much wildlife, learned about the military in the area and saw beautiful sights. Our daughter was able to steer the sailboat for awhile and learned about how the wind impacted the sails. If you go, use Sail San Diego. You wont be disappointed. Make sure you check out the membership opportunities.
