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 a brief safety instruction, we'll set sail. Complimentary wine & snacks 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 to the Pacific along Point Loma while enjoying the city’s magnificent skyline. As we approach the Submarine base, your skipper will share interesting facts about some of the ships and wildlife in the bay. Near bait barge, we will find a family of Sealion who will pose for your cameras and all kind of Bay Birds including big pelicans. Waiting for Sunset just out of the San Diego Bay and sail back after dark when all city lights are on. The high light of your trip. 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.
This experience is not like commercial companies ones. Benefit for the small group! you really deal with me, the true owner and Skipper of the boat, that makes all difference! About: My name is Ruslan and I'm from Moldova - a country "known" for its wines. I spent 10 years traveling & working in several foreign countries, including Turkey & Thailand in the position of the tour guide. My karma must have been positive in 2014 when 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 a U.S Coast Guard Captain' s License & managed to buy my own sailing yacht in San Francisco. I christened her "Green Flash" & sailed her for 6 days south to San Diego. Now you can find me sailing in San Diego Bay almost every day.

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 and operating huge ships during the tour.
