We offer thrilling San Diego boat charters for the general public, private parties, and corporate events. Our interactive excursions across San Diego Bay take place aboard the famous Stars & Stripes sailboat, an authentic America’s Cup racing yacht. Fully restored to pristine condition, the Stars & Stripes sailboat is one of the fastest and most famous sailing vessels in the world. You’ll feel like one of the crew as you help raise and trim the sails or take your turn at the helm to steer the boat. We sail on San Diego Bay at twice the speed of an average sailboat. If you’d rather sit back and relax, that’s fine, too. Learn more about our affordable rates, what to bring with you, and what to expect on our San Diego boat charter. Our office and Stars & Stripes USA-11 are located at the Kona Kai Resort & Marina on Shelter Island, San Diego Bay. Parking is plentiful and free, and there is no sailing experience necessary to join us on our charters.
