Top Rated and Unique Team Building Activity in San Diego

 

Stars and Stripes of San Diego Team Building Program

Team building is one positive group development activity that has been practiced long enough to bring a sense of togetherness in the workplace. Leaders use this simple yet effective trick to achieve maximum results and to have fun. When we say maximum results, what do we mean? Effective working relations, solutions to problems, and target focusing.

You have observed that it is easy to succeed as a team than to succeed as an individual. All the success stories believe that “A business is as strong as its team.” 

To understand team-building more, this article explains.

What are the 5 benefits of team building?

Out of the many team-building importance, you need to understand the five most important.

Team-building improves productivity and creativity

The knowledge and performance of an individual are usually limited. But, with a team of expert planners, skilled creators, and experienced executors, productivity becomes unlimited. With talented players in your organization, you will win games. But, with a team of talented and intelligent members, you will win championships. This is one secret most people are unaware of.

It is essential to go for team building activities to learn new and creative ideas that you did not know.

Team-building can help you identify your weaknesses and strengths

When you work as a team, you are working with different talents. You might be good at working on the helm and tacking the vessel while another person is an expert at jibing and controlling the rudder. 

When you work as a team, you will learn the basics of whatever you were not familiar with.

Team-building helps set and define goals. 

Every achievement started as a target/goal. If you intend to accomplish a task, you need to work as a team and take steps at the same time.

For instance: If you want to sail to the shores with our Stars & Stripes USA-11 as winners, you need to have a goal in mind. Goals can be breaking a record or closing in on a previously set record. Work towards your goal as a team.

Team-building can help you solve problems easier

By combining different talents, abilities, and solutions, your team can achieve goals faster and easier.

Through team building programs, members will learn to work together as a compact unit. 

Our crew members onboard help, challenge, and teach other members the necessary sailing skills.

Team-building is one way to motivate your employees

If you want a healthy environment in your workplace, a team-building activity does the trick. Take your employees on a sailing trip to bond with each other and enjoy fun games at sea.

Employees need a season where they can enjoy the “outside environment.” Going on a sailing trip on a corporate sailing charter often helps them release the tension and stress encountered in the workplace. Who knows, maybe that is what they needed all along.

After a season out at sea, they will come back to work rejuvenated and optimistic.

Four Team building activities you can find in our San Diego sailboat charter

Building challenge 

Building a challenge on a yacht can get all the members to enjoy themselves and have a great time during a team-building outing. 

An offshore adventure can make team members get outside their comfort zones and achieve specific goals to win a challenge. An offshore challenge can include; participants are looking to solve puzzles by overcoming the set encounters. 

The idea is to improve teamwork and interdependence at the same time.

Group size – 10 -12 members

Time – 3 hours

This event is perfect if you need to learn the basic

  • Development skills
  • Creative and strategic planning skills.
  • Networking skills

 

Who catches the most fish fish at sea?

The idea is not to have a winner and give him a prize. The idea is to encourage members to work together and achieve their goals.

Who catches the most abundant fish can involve two members sharing ideas on the basic and most effective way to catch the most fish to win the challenge.

Group size – 2-3 members

Time 2 hours

The last man standing wins the challenge

This challenge is more of an individual kind of challenge. The idea is to show your members that no matter the situation, standing as an individual cannot always guarantee positive results.

The challenge involves individuals taking time to stand on one foot as the sail steers the swaying waters. Whoever stands the longest wins the challenge. 

When you are done, the sail members can add a little fun and make two members take the challenge while holding each other’s hands. You should notice that it becomes easy to work as a unit than working as an individual.

Group size – 1-2 members

Time – 1.5 – 2 hours

Scavenger hunt

A scavenger hunt embraces finding hidden accessories with and without clues. 

Select a team of three members and try the challenge. After the challenge is done, repeat the challenge with individuals. You will see that it is easier to work as three members than it is to work as an individual. 

The lesson here is that in a team, you need to combine ideas as you focus on the goal to achieve results fast and easy.

Group size – 6-7 members

Time – 4-5 hours

Here are five reasons why team-building on a liner can help achieve your goals.

Develop excellent communication skills: Not only is communication skills, the basis of a comfortable working environment. It is one skill that can be effective if you want to achieve the same goal without any trouble. Excellent communication skills aboard a sail can make you tackle even the strongest of winds and the toughest of tides.

Create an inclusive environment: When you are together in a room, you will feel involved in most of the decision making. Team building is one way to get members to feel included in whatever that goes on around and outside the open. Members can choose to participate as much as they can without limits and boundaries.

Experience leadership skills: A leader should not be self-centered. A leader should be more of a role model and a motivator to others. He should not be the one making all the rules without consulting with his team. These are the few necessary leadership skills that one can learn during a team building activity.

Discover Some Fun Things to Do in San Diego for Adults

Sometimes it really is just frustrating trying to search through a multitude of websites in desperate hope of finding something worth doing… Well, I’ve condensed your searching into one article! Whether you live in the area and are wanting to do something different or you are on vacation and wanting to make every moment worthwhile… This should help!

Get out on the water

The Gondola Company

The Gondola Company is basically your Passport to Italy as it allows you to experience the magical tradition of Venice… in the United States. You will have the chance to softly cruise in a private gondola – a flat-bottomed boat with high points at each end, rowed by one oar – through the beautiful canals of the Coronado Cays. 

There are different options for these gentle cruises such as, Pasaporto Cruise – relaxing and romantic, Sunset Cruise – a twilight gondola cruise, Carolina Cruise – for families, Fleet Cruise – to celebrate special occasions with family, friends, or coworkers… You may have up to six gondolas travelling side-by-side, seating up to forty-three people at once. Whichever you choose, you can upgrade your cruise with a professional mandolin or violin player.

La Jolla Kayak

With this kayak tour you will get to kayak through the La Jolla Ecological Reserve. This reserve is home to leopard sharks, Garibaldi (California’s state marine fish), kelp beds, sea lions, and sometimes even pods of dolphins.

Depending on weather you may even have the chance to enter into the sea caves! Prepare to get wet!

San Diego Whale Watching Cruise

One specifically thrilling, yet relaxing, thing you are able to do in San Diego is whale watching!

You will sail San Diego waters aboard a replica of an infamous sailing schooner – the world’s first America’s Cup trophy winner. Throughout the experience your guide will share interesting and informative commentary about any marine life in the area, as well as about some US Navy sites you will pass.

Along this cruise you have the chance to spot migrating whales and/or dolphins! Exciting!

Go sightseeing

Sunset Cliffs Natural Park

Sunset Cliffs Natural Park is a city park that sits on a unique coastal landscape. It has a three-mile family-friendly (aka, rather easy) hike along the shoreline.

There are several amazing points to access on the trail which include Ladera St. and Sunset Cliffs Blvd. in the Hillside section. From these access points, you can find stairs that lead to tidepools as well as to the path that meanders along the coast. Along this said trail you will have the ability to see the Sandstone Arch and Cormorant Rock.

The Meditation Gardens

More specifically called, Encinitas – The Place: Self-Realization Fellowship Meditation Gardens.

At these gardens you are said to lose yourself in thought as they are peaceful and “cleansing.” Here you will find yourself walking on stone and dirt paths, surrounded by well-manicured gardens filled with tropical plants, trees, beautiful vibrant flowers, and potted plants. There are also small, soothing creeks and miniature waterfalls that lead into little ponds – which are filled with colorful koi fish.

Now, if you are not wanting to walk the whole time, do not worry. There are benches located along the paths and some more hidden in remote corners so you can sit down, and soak it all in. Maybe even meditate.

Stonewall Peak Trail

This trail, located in the Cuyamaca Rancho State Park of San Diego, is actually one of the most popular in San Diego. Upon hiking this trail, you will have the opportunity to see breath-taking three-sixty views from Cuyamaca Rancho State Park to Anza-Borrego Desert State Park.

The trail is not too difficult, and it has a few places to stop if you want a break. Maybe have a picnic in Paso Picacho Campground – located along the trail.

Something especially cool about this trail is that you will be upon rounded hills of granitic and metamorphic rock… This rock is the ancient roots of a once actively volcanic, Peninsular Range. Do not worry, it is totally safe now.

Visit all sorts of parks

Balboa Park

Balboa Park is considered central to the story of San Diego as it started up one-hundred and fifty years ago when leaders took the step of setting aside the mesa overlooking downtown to establish a city park. It is ethnically diverse, historically rich, culturally abundant, and naturally breathtaking.

This park includes seventeen museums and seemingly infinite gardens. There are different tours, restaurants, shopping places, and theaters. It is seen as one of North America’s most “iconic” urban parks – it definitely seems to be a must-see.

Belmont Park

Belmont Park is actually an amusement park but that can still be fun for adults… Right?

There is access to laser tag, sky ropes, sky climb/rockwall, mini-golf, and a seven-dimensional theater. Who knew there even was such a thing?! Not only will you be able to participate in said activities but there are also many rides, as it is an amusement park. Some include The Giant Dipper, Beach Blaster, Control Freak, and so on.

 

Petco Park

Petco Park is a Major-League baseball park located in the downtown area of San Diego. It is also sometimes used as a venue for concerts, soccer, golf, and rugby sevens

This Major League ballpark differentiates itself from others built in the same era with its absence of retro-style red brick and green seats. The stadium is garbed in Indian sandstone and stucco. Any exposed steel is painted white and the (about) forty-thousand fixed seats are dark blue. It’s a truly unique design, making for an even more special experience.

 

Laze on the beach

Black’s Beach

Black’s Beach is definitely one for adults only… You will see why in a moment.

This beach is perfect for surfers as the coastline has big winter swells. But, for non-surfers, the beach is known as San Diego’s nude beach. Nudism is indeed unlawful in San Diego, but it has persisted at this beach for decades.

If you are looking to surf, the surfers tend to head south, of the Glider Port Trail, to the main peaks. If you are looking to laze (18+ style), the nudists hang out more north. If you are not interested in either, keep reading as La Jolla Shores may be for you.

La Jolla Shores

La Jolla Shores is one of the most popular beaches in all of California – it is actually on a peninsula, surrounded by three sides by the sea.

During the summer and fall months, the waves are gentle, and the waters stay warm. This is perfect if you are just looking to float in the sea, maybe even lay in a raft. Or, if you are wanting to simply stick your toes in the water… ass in the sand.

Ocean Beach

Not only can you surf or sunbathe here, you can also walk amongst a wooden pier that extends an entire half a mile out to sea – you are permitted to fish here, too.

Also, there is a sub-beach to Ocean Beach called Dog Beach. On this beach pets are not only allowed, but heavily encouraged to come at any time!

See some animals

San Diego Zoo

Some exhibits include; Monkey Trails and Forest Tales, Owens Aviary, Scripps Aviary, Panda Canyon, Urban Jungle, Polar Bear Plunge, Discovery Outpost, Ituri Forest, Elephant Odyssey, Gorilla Tropics, and so on.

San Diego Safari Park

Some exhibits and attractions include; Asian Savanna and African Plains, Tiger Trail, Nairobi Village and Gorilla Forest, Hidden Jungle, Lion Camp, Condor Ridge, African Woods and African Outpost, and more.

 

SeaWorld San Diego

Some exhibits include; Aquariums, Explorer’s Reef, Dolphins, Killer Whales, Wild Arctic, and Seals and Seal Lions. There are also rides such as Bayside Skyride, Ocean Explorer, Riptide Rescue, Electric Eel, Journey to Atlantis, and the list goes on!

All in all, there really are so many different, fun things to do in San Diego. From sailing San Diego waters to hiking up an inactive volcano, you have hopefully found what suits you!

Have a blast with whichever one (or more) of these exciting adventures you choose!

Check out the Famous Sailboat You Can Charter to Sail San Diego Bay

Yes, sailing and boating is already fun, but would it not be better knowing you are on an infamous boat/yacht? One that that has been around and raced for decades? I think so – but read for yourself!

What is it and why is it famous?

This specific sailboat is called Stars & Stripes USA-11. Now, this boat/yacht was awarded the first America’s Cup trophy winner – on August 22nd, 1974. 

The history of the boat/yacht (called America) began with five individuals in the New York Yacht Club. These individuals decided they wanted to build a “state-of-the-art” schooner (a sailing ship with two or more masts) in order to compete against British ships in co-occurrence with England’s Great Exposition of 1851. 

In June 1851, the individuals set sail from New York City’s East River to England. The man that had the role of captain was called Captain William H. Brown and he had a crew of eight. They crossed the Atlantic in just three weeks. 

Finally, on August 22nd, triumphed in the fifty-three-mile race. Queen Victoria watched from her royal yacht and, after seeing America come over the horizon, she asked her attendant, “What is second?” And he replied, “Your Majesty, there is no second.” As in, there is no second-place prize. 

Within ten days after the victory the America was sold to an Irish lord for twenty-five thousand dollars. 

But the America’s Cup racing continued regularly.

In the 1970s, a man called Dennis Conner had been twice defending the America’s Cup trophy. In 1987 he built four boats and called them all Stars & Stripes. He began taking on crew members and they tested the boats one by one. Then he was left with one and called it Stars & Stripes USA-11. 

Conner raced with this boat for fifty-three days until the challenger was defeated. Now, the Stars & Stripes USA-11 remains in San Diego, where it last raced (and won in 1992) with Dennis Conner, and you can hop aboard! 

See for yourself on the website – https://sailusa11.com/ – where you will learn all about Stars & Stripes USA-11 sailing San Diego.

Is it limited access? Does it cost more?

Nope and nope! If you decide on a public charter it will be $125 per adult and $75 per child (ages five to eighteen). Just like any other public boat/yacht! 

And, if you are thinking you want a private charter, it is a minimum of $1,500. Again, just like any other private boat/yacht – You can also fit up to twenty-four people aboard. 

Is it really better than other sailboats?

Well, if you do not want to take my word for it, take a multitude of reviews left on Tripadvisor. (I sourced the reference link in the italicized font, if you want to look yourself); 

Great time, lots of fun! We reserved some time with the Stars and Stripes crew for a sailing tour of the San Diego bay. It’s hard to find activities that can accommodate a large group (17 people) but this was perfect! Everyone got the chance to steer the boat and crank in the lines. The boat was really impressive and felt spacious and safe…” 

The Best .period. Exclamation Points !!!!!Truly awesome, a very enjoyable adventure & tour. Everybody gets to help crew the boat as much as they want, or not at all. The ride is a forever experience, the crew was as much a tour guide as a sailing tutor, no matter what your degree of knowledge was of either. Way more fun than some ‘sit on your hands harbor tour’. Have already recommended this to friends and family and would love to do this again on my return to San Diego. Thanks USA-11.” 

Best adventure activity in San Diego. This is the best adventure experience in San Diego. Well worth your time. San Diego, the home of Dennis Conner and port of call for two America’s Cup races, has this amazing boat from the 1992 campaign. The boat is big, impressive, and staffed with first class sailors. The bay tour is extensive and a lot of fun.” 

AWESOME!!!!  This is the best thing to do for sailing in San Diego. Did a private charter one summer and it was nowhere near as good as this was. The hosts are wonderful and tell you a lot about the America’s Cup, along with taking pictures aboard and they are included. It was a great day!!!” 

So, if you will not take it from me, take it from these reviewers that loved being able to sail San Diego water on the Stars & Stripes USA-11. 

What time of year am I able to charter it?

Anytime – America’s Cup Sailing San Diego offers both summer and winter sailing tours! 

Just remember that if you go on a summer sail then you may want to bring sunglasses, sunscreen, a light sweater and/or jacket, and sneakers or rubber-soled shoes.

If you go on a winter sail then you will still want the sunglasses, sunscreen – you can still burn if it is cloudy! Wear sunscreen! – and sneakers or rubber-soled shoes. You will probably also want and/or need a warm jacket (dress in layers), long pants, and warm socks! A hat or something to cover up your ears would probably help a lot, especially if you get cold rather quickly. 

Do keep in mind that you will be out on the boat/yacht for three whole hours – whether you are sailing publicly or privately… So, do dress accordingly! 

I am interested, who do I contact?

In order to charter a boat/yacht, visit this website and contact them there – https://sailusa11.com/. 

If you do not wish to message and/or email them then you can call! America’s Cup Sailing San Diego’s customer support number is (619) 255-4705. 

And, if you cannot seem to find the place – the address is 1551 Shelter Island Drive San Diego, CA 92106. 

They are open every single day from nine in the morning to six in the evening.

Have a blast on the Stars & Stripes USA-11and hang on tight!

10 Best Sailing Charters for Your Next Visit to San Diego

Going sailing sounds super exciting… Right? Right! Well, as long as you go to the right places and, lucky for you, you do not need to do excessive research because I have done it all for you! Here are the top ten best sailing charters that sail San Diego waters/coastlines! Do keep in mind, after the first three, there is no longer an order of best to less great – and I will no longer apply review references.

  • Sail Stars & Stripes USA-11

The best sailing charter so far, at least to Tripadvisor and yelp reviews, would definitely have to be Sail Stars & Stripes USA-11. This charter has you cruising around San Diego Bay aboard the authentic 1851 America’s Cup racing boat/yacht.

This racing boat/yacht goes twice the speed of an average sailboat so hold on – you’re in for a wild ride! 

There are both public and private charters so choose whichever you please – soft drinks, water, and light snacks will be provided completely free on either charter type. The crew member aboard the boat/ship will also be taking photos and videos to later be posted on Google Web Albums – again, entirely free! So, sit back and enjoy the ride. 

And, to prove that it is a well-loved experience, these are some of the first few reviews left on Tripadvisor about Sail Stars & Stripes USA-11; “Fabulous sailing experience.” “Wow! What a wonderful experience!” “Joy and awe! Amazing day and a crew who loved being on the boat.” 

  •  Classic Sailboat Sunset Sail

This sailing charter is one of the most calm boat/yacht experiences you could possibly find. Not only is there a beautiful sunset that you have the chance to watch, there is also wine, craft beer, and light snacks provided! 

On the two-and-a-half-hour route you will pass landmarks like the USS Midway and the Old Point Loma Lighthouse. You may just see some sea lions, dolphins, and other wildlife around the San Diego Harbor, too! You will have the chance to take some photographs if you want to wish to document your fun experience. 

This is also an all-inclusive, small-group, cruise! So, whether you want to make it a date or a family get-together, it works! 

The first couple reviews left on Tripadvisor were; “Excellent sailing!” and “Amazing! A sailing boat trip was on my bucket list and way exceeded my expectations.” 

However, I did come across one negative review, “Owner did not provide pictures and enough information about the sailboat,” but the company quickly reacted and apologized profusely. Keep in mind, that is the only negative response I came across.

  •  San Diego Whale Watching Cruise

Love seeing wildlife? See a lot with this cruise! 

You will be cruising on the ship America, sailing San Diego waters, spotting migrating whales and see dolphins skipping in the Pacific Ocean. As you are watching the wildlife, your expert guide will share informative and interesting commentary about grey whales, dolphins, and whatever else you may see.

And, a bonus, the boat/yacht that you will be aboard is a replica of the historic, 1851, first America’s Cup sailboat! 

You will be provided light snacks and non-alcoholic drinks, but if you wish, you can bring your favorite bottle of wine to sip onboard. 

I think the first couple Tripadvisor reviews sum up the experience quite well; “The tour was lovely.” “No whales but still lots of fun… We did see a HUGE pod of dolphins.” 

  • Gone Sailing Charters

These charters are actually more towards those wanting to have a party or celebration while onboard. 

They specialize in setting up romantic dates, proposal settings, wedding receptions, graduation parties, birthday parties, anniversaries, and the list goes on. 

Similar to Sail San Diego, they also have private and public charters offered openly. 

  • San Diego Sunset Sail

With this charter you will end up on a very comfortable, cozy, yacht and cruise along, sailing San Diego’s coastline. You will have the ability to take in views of scenic waterfronts, military vessels, and historical landmarks. 

And, if you pay close enough attention to the water, you may just see some marine wildlife! Make sure to take some pictures! 

This tour is specifically for small groups, up to six people, and is usually taken by couples that want to enjoy a glass of champagne (included) on the water.

  •  Sail Away San Diego

For these charters, all are private, no exceptions. Some options would be Proposal Cruise, Sunset Cruise, Dinner Cruise, Day Sail, Wedding Cruise, and the list goes on. 

You will be provided champagne, no matter which cruise you decide on, and non-alcoholic drinks will also be available. 

Sail Away San Diego is a family owned and operated business, so they like to make each of their trips feel as comfortable and easy as possible. 

  •  Cast Off Sailing

This charter gives you private and public charters, again, similar to Stars & Stripes USA-11. Sadly, they do not have boats/yachts large enough for a group quantity over ten. 

When setting sail, you can watch the sunset, go out on the water for an entire day, or do seasonal whale watching! 

Cast Off Sailing encourages their guests to take control and sail the vessel, but you do not have to. If you would like, you may sip on some wine.

  • Imagine Sailing San Diego

Imagine Sailing San Diego gives you options to pass by Bayfront Water’s Edge at San Diego and experience the Downtown Skyline from aboard your sailboat. You can also pass by San Diego Bay and Coastal Waters – this option only allows six people onboard. 

Either way, you will be on a private boat/yacht, sailing San Diego’s coastlines.

Please know that this is not wheelchair accessible, infants must sit on laps, and it is not recommended for travelers with back problems – or any serious health condition, for that matter. 

Snacks and bottled water are included, you can bring your own alcoholic beverages if you wish. 

  •  Lucky Sol Sailing

Lucky Sol Sailing is available for groups up to six people. The most popular tour given by them is the San Diego Bay Tour. 

You will pass all of the landmarks that the Bay has to offer including the USS Midway, Star of India & Maritime Museum, Coronado Bridge, NAS North Island, and so on.

You will see shore birds and if you are lucky, sea lions and maybe even a dolphin or two. You will be provided water and light snacks – feel free to bring your own, too!

  • San Diego Dinner Dance Cruise

This charter offers a three-hour cruise along with a three-course dinner (with choice of entree). You can also purchase cocktails and wine. Beverages included would be water, champagne, or sparkling cider!

Something different about this compared to the others on the list… There is an onboard DJ! So, dance the night away.

Another note, there is sadly a dress code of business casual, so you will have to put your blue jeans away.

Have fun sailing!

The Best Guide to Sail San Diego by America’s Cup Sailing Charters

Going sailing in itself is an exciting, fun activity – but it gets better. Why not sail on a boat/yacht that was once used for racing? Sounds like a good thrill to me!

What exactly is America’s Cup?

America’s Cup is the single oldest international sporting trophy in the entire world – first being contested in 1851 in a race.

It has also been claimed to be the most unfair competition in all sports because the Defender, the winner, was awarded the ability to choose the venue of the next race. This then gives the Defender an obvious, unfair advantage over the other racers/sailors.

Still, though, because of its infamous status, the America’s Cup Sailing charter in San Diego – Stars & Stripes – it has almost one-hundred-percent positive reviews, this for those interested in sailing San Diego coasts.

Do I really have to race someone?

No, there is not necessarily any racing in America’s Cup sailing. But, please note that you will be going rather quickly as the boat, yacht specifically, you board was once used for racing.

For example, if that is something you take interest to and you want to try it out – and you are specifically looking to sail San Diego waters – check out the website, https://sailusa11.com, and the yacht for you is called Stars & Stripes USA-11.

But, if you decide you do want to race, you can sign up for Team Building races. In these races you will have employee members with you that will steer the boats/yachts so you can just sit back and enjoy the thrill!

Or, if you like more hands on things… You can steer, too! It is an interactive tour. 

Another plus with this one is that you will be given jackets, polo shirts, t-shirts, and caps; just like the actual America’s Cup sailing crew(s)!

Again, you do not have to if that is not something you would be interested in.

Do I have to sail with strangers?

You can choose to either sail publicly or privately. If you are looking to meet some like-minded people with at least one interest in common with you – sailing – then you may want to decide on a public charter.

However, if you just want this to be a family experience, or something else of the sort, then there is an option for you, too – private charters!

Who all can come aboard?

Almost anyone can come aboard!

You can go alone, you can go with your partner, with friends, with your family, etcetera. If you have a child, ages five to eighteen, that wants to go sailing then they are welcome but an adult must accompany them.

And, something crazy is that, on private charters, up to twenty-four people can board at a time! That is a lot of people!

Sadly, though, this is not handicap-friendly as it is not wheelchair accessible.

How much does it cost?

Well, for public charters, adults and children pay differently. Adults have to pay $125 and children, $75. Remember, this is PER PERSON. Another note, this is specifically for those that are looking to sail San Diego waters/San Diego bay. The prices – listed on the site, https://sailusa11.com – for all public charters. And, will be provided complimentary water and light snacks.

For private charters, it works differently. They cost a minimum of $1,500. But, this is as a whole, not per person, thankfully. Private charters provide soft drinks, water, light snacks, and complimentary photos and videos. These photos will be posted on Google Web Albums where you can access them for free!

When is the best time to go?

Anytime – America’s Cup Sailing San Diego offers both summer and winter sails!

Just remember that if you go in the summer you may want to bring sunglasses, sunscreen, a windbreaker (or light sweater and/or jacket), and sneakers.

If you go on a winter sail then you will still want sunglasses, sunscreen, and sneakers. You will probably also want and/or need a warm jacket (dress in layers), long pants, and warm socks!

Do keep in mind that you will be out on the boat/yacht for three whole hours – whether you are sailing publicly or privately!

What do the reviews say?

On Trip Advisor I could find nothing but positive reviews. But I’ll list a few anyways; “Exhilarating, Fast, Beautiful, with a dose of San Diego Bay’s history sums it all up. HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU CHECK THIS OUT – SAILOR OR NON-SAILOR!” This person seems quite ecstatic about it.

What happens if I get seasick?

Do not worry! You will be sailing on smooth waters; therefore the boat/yacht will not be rocking you back and forth, making you nauseated.

But, if you are still too nervous about the possibility, then it would be smart to take something an hour or so before you set sail. It is recommended that those wishing to go out and sail San Diego bay to visit this site, https://sailusa11.com, and they do indeed guarantee no seasickness.

If somehow you do end up feeling a little bit seasick then ask for a turn at the helm. (They encourage everyone to take a turn at the helm anyways!)

You know how sometimes people become car sick if they are just sitting there but they are fine when they are the one driving? It might be like that. Give it a try!

I am interested, who do I contact?

If you want to call beforehand then America’s Cup Sailing San Diego’s customer support number is (619) 255-4705.

If you are feeling spontaneous and just want to see it straight away – the address is 1551 Shelter Island Drive San Diego, CA 92106. 

They are open every single day from nine in the morning to six at night.

And, just for some more information, their website is https://sailusa11.com.
