In this modern age we need to remember that our nautical roots are based in wood, canvas and craftsmanship. Keeping this legacy alive is my goal. I am a licensed captain with over 50 years experience sailing and restoring classic vessels.
It took over two years of hard work to restore our Friendship Sloop “Liberty” so that she could become a working example of the diverse legacy of American maritime tradition. You will fall in love with her wooden mast, teak accents, and classic lines. Join me for a once in a lifetime sailing adventure -there's a good chance of spotting sea lions, pelicans, cormorants, and maybe even a dolphin !

Where you'll be

Depending on the direction of the wind, Captain Phil will sail you past; the Coronado Bridge, military ships, Pt. Loma Lighthouse, and the Maritime Museum ships. There is always tons of activity on the water, and plenty of wildlife, too!

Philip is very personable, and great with kids. He was super accommodating and helped us store our luggage from just coming off the plane, and generous with snacks for three hungry girls. Philip let two of my girls steer for a bit and that was awesome for them. This is not a budget friendly experience for larger groups. I had told Philip a few times, once via Airbnb, and then in person, that this was our first ocean experience, so I would have liked some follow through with explaining more about the boat, the sea, and San Diego in general. We would have liked to see more sight seeing (points of interest, sea lions, etc.) and knowledge passed (learning about San Diego) from Philip for the price paid. The trip was more about watching him sail, but no talk about what or how he was doing it, not even the basic mechanics of sailing. That said, Philip does have a beautiful classic, so if you already know about San Diego and just want to take a ride around without the tourist guide approach, this is a relaxing experience and he has beer.

Such an amazing experience. Phillip had a great knowledge about sailing and made us feel at home during our trip. Straight perfection.
