San Diego is a veritable water wonderland for sailing and boating enthusiasts. From the pristine Pacific Ocean to big bays, San Diego’s 70 miles of coastline and adjacent blue waters beckon to be explored.
Pick up anchor and sail the waters around San Diego’s bay to see the spectacular sights of the city from a whole new view. Set sail from any of the harbors throughout the region, from the Embarcadero downtown and Point Loma, to the Oceanside Harbor, and enjoy a variety of sea excursions. Whether it’s on a sightseeing charter boat, a whale watching excursion, a romantic moonlit dinner cruise, or a leisurely trip around the Bay, there are plenty of options to try out your sea legs in San Diego. Experienced sailors have the option of renting a boat and charting their own course, and less experienced landlubbers have plenty of lesson options to get them familiar with boating before embarking on their sea-bound journey.
