There are many ways to spend time in San Diego, whether visiting or enjoying a day off. Spending time on the open water is a popular activity, and an all-day sailing trip is a good choice, especially when the weather is warm. Whether you want to explore the ocean or chill in the sun, this tour suits families, friends, and coworkers.

What’s an All Day Sail?

When you spend the day sailing, you have the time to relax and enjoy. This exclusive day trip is available for private parties of up to 12 guests. Because it is a private tour, you can choose how you want to spend the day. You have six hours on the water, and you can cruise into the Pacific Ocean and look for sea creatures, such as sea lions, dolphins, and turtles, or you can choose to anchor the sailboat in San Diego Bay and jump in and swim in the soothing water.

An all-day sail is a perfect option for many get-togethers. Some examples of occasions that this trip is good for include:

  • Small family get-togethers
  • Corporate events
  • Bachelor or bachelorette parties
  • Overdue time with friends
  • Weddings
  • Birthday parties

No matter the occasion, get ready to have fun and relax on the open water.

What To Expect

Besides a lot of fun, you can expect a customized ride on a 46-foot sailing yacht. Let your captain know what type of day you are looking for, whether you want to anchor or keep going. During the six-hour trip, you will enjoy lunch and snacks, which are included in the price. You can also help yourself to complimentary beverages, such as beer, water, sodas, seltzers, and other non-alcoholic drinks.

Once you have a drink, you can relax while viewing beautiful San Diego from the water. Enjoy the wind in your hair as you take in the sun and see various types of wildlife. When you get tired of relaxing, ask your captain to anchor the yacht, and you can dive into the refreshing water and swim to your heart’s content. When you are ready to move on, let your captain know, and you will be on your way.

For the best experience, arrive 20 minutes before your reserved time. The check-in location is at 2720 Shelter Island Drive, and free parking is nearby. You can then enjoy a unique experience around San Diego.

What To Pack

Your day trip will be even more enjoyable if you prepare for the sail. It will be cooler on the water, even on hot days, so you may want to pack layers if you get chilly. If you forget, the yacht also has blankets onboard for your comfort. If you plan on getting in the water, wear a suit underneath your clothes to quickly get in. Sunglasses are imperative, as it is almost always sunny, and the glare off the water can be intense.

Sunscreen is also essential, as you will be in the sun all day, and the sun’s effects are even more significant on open water. You may also want to wear a hat for sun protection. If you’re going to enjoy the wildlife, you should bring binoculars so you can see better. A camera is always a good idea; you will want to capture many of your moments on the yacht. If you forget anything, you can also purchase what you need at the store before you embark on your trip.
