What you'll do

Meet your skipper at H & M Landing on Shelter Island, a well-known area of San Diego where some of the best seafood restaurants are located. The captain will meet you there & walk you to the yacht "Green Flash." After brief safety instruction, we'll set sail. Complimentary wine & bear will await you (you are welcome to bring your own favorite food & drinks, too - no red wines please). We'll depart from America's Cup Harbor & cruise on San Diego Bay along downtown while enjoying the city’s magnificent skyline. As we approach the Maritime Museum, your skipper will share interesting facts about some of the ships that constitute the museum: old wooden ships, steam powerboats, & even submarines as close as 30' (10m) away. The "Star of India" & and the "Berkeley" are California & National Historic Landmarks. Nearby is the massive "USS Midway" which is now a museum & #7 most popular tourist attraction in the U.S. & #2 in San Diego. The retired aircraft carrier is now a live symbol of freedom. You will enjoy a relaxing sail with a glass of good local wine & pleasant company along with a sense of unity with nature that comes with being under sail. Go Green - Go Sailing!

Your hosts

Two friends running this experience for you. About Captain Russ, I'm originally from Moldova. I spent 10 years traveling & working in different countries, including Turkey & Thailand. In 2014 I won the Green Card Lottery & got to come to California! After a couple of seasons of commercial fishing in Alaska, I was able to get Captain License & managed to buy my own sailing yacht "Green Flash". Now you can find me sailing in San Diego Bay almost every day About Captain Chandler, I've been sailing for 25 years and am originally from New England. I've sailed everything from Sunfish to Maxi Yachts and in between. After moving to CA I decided to follow my passion and earn my Captain License. When I'm not sailing you can find me racing sailboat or teaching new sailors. I'm an open book and love learning from everyone, so share your stories

Where you'll be

San Diego Bay is a very protected place with the best scenery that makes it a good place to enjoy calm sailing for everyone. My sail yacht will take you on the unforgivable experience of your vacation. Meet local sea lions, seabirds and maybe we will see how navy training dolphins in the bay. It is also one of the biggest NAVY bases in the country so we will most likely see NAVY flying helicopters, operating huge ships during the tour.
