Details & Itinerary

Public and Private 3 hour sailboat ride aboard Stars & Stripes USA-11, the authentic America’s Cup racing yacht sailed by Dennis Conner in 1982. Take the helm, grind the winches, or just hang on as we zip around San Diego Bay at twice the speed of the average sailboat. A truly unique and memorable experience. Soft drinks, water, & light snacks are included. After the sail, complimentary refreshments are served while viewing the days activities on our flat screen TV. 

  • Be sure to check in at our office 15 minutes prior to the sail.
  •  Or you could contact us by phone 15 prior to check in, and meet us at the dock next to the boat.
  • Our boat leaves the dock promptly at the time listed on your reservation.
  • If you are running late, please give us a courtesy call BEFORE your scheduled boarding time.
  • If you do not, the boat may leave without you.
What You Should Bring

Dressing in layers is a good idea as San Diego’s temperature can vary by time of day. It’s typically somewhat breezy in afternoon, with plenty of sunshine. Make sure to bring a sweatshirt and/or jacket, sunscreen, sunglasses and hats, along with comfortable, light soled non-slip shoes (no high heels or black bottom shoes of any type, please!). Barefoot onboard is better than flipflops.

What will I see on our cruise?

We always see Sea Lions, Pelicans and Gulls, and Dolphins are quite frequent playing in the bay. The Military is always active and we also cruise under the USS Nimitz Aircraft Carrier. There is also a brief but in depth history of sailboats, sailing competitions, and some famous local sailors, prior to the sail!
