Cruising around San Diego on a boat rather than in a car is a refreshing and exciting way to take in America's Finest City. Novices and professional yachtsman alike agree that nothing beats a relaxing summer afternoon soaking up some rays aboard a sailboat, schooner or yacht. You'll find many of these in port in both Mission Bay and Diego Bay.
Favorite sailing areas in San Diego include Mission Bay, San Diego Bay, East County lakes and the ocean. Tranquil San Diego Bay remains the most popular, offering unforgettable views of the Coronado Bay Bridge, Cabrillo National Monument and the Downtown San Diego skyline. Sailing in San Diego is easy to enjoy, with more than 30 boat and charter services in San Diego alone. If you're planning a floating party, you can also find a boat rental for any size group.
One of the great pleasures of San Diego is the abundance of beautiful bodies of water: the Pacific Ocean, Mission Bay, and San Diego Bay. Almost everywhere you turn, there's a postcard-perfect picture. But for a different approach to enjoying San Diego's scenery, try viewing the city from the water. There are daily harbor excursions that cruise the waters of San Diego Bay. As you enjoy downtown San Diego, walk west to the San Diego harbor where you'll see the San Diego Maritime Museum at the Embarcadero, along with the famous Star of India. Here you can choose from many boats that will take you around San Diego Harbor. A San Diego Harbor excursion through San Diego Bay is the perfect way to tour San Diego and to smell the clear salt air and listen to the sounds of San Diego Bay, including the bark of seals and the cries of seagulls following tuna boats coming home with their catches.← Activities Home
