Sailing San Diego Bay FAQ
Q: How do I redeem a Groupon or Living Social
A: Simply click the REDEEM COUPONS banner at the top
of this website - Follow the simple instructions and schedule your cruise.
Q: What happens if my coupon expires before I
can use it?
A: The value of your coupon purchase price will be
applied towards another date you are available. Simply pay the difference for the type of cruise
you purchased and we will get you rescheduled.
Q: I want to book a cruise using a coupon, but the coupon is only for two
people and we have a third person that wants to go. Do we need to purchase an additional coupon for
just one more person?
A: Yes, each coupon is for two people only. These coupons are basically half off,
so purchasing an additional coupon for your guest is still an amazing deal and you are still
Q: When I call your phone number, all I get
is an automated response, why can't I talk to a real person?
A: We spend almost all day sailing, so we are
unable to answer the phone. Many of the questions that are are typically asked can be
answered here if you continue reading. If you can't find the answer you are looking for, simply
send an email to our office and we will get right back to you when we return
Q: How do I know what days are
A: We suggest you send us the days YOU prefer to
sail, as we do our best to accommodate you.
You can always view our calendar and see
what days are available. There is a delay on updates to our calendar, so some days that seem to be
available may already be booked.
Q: Do you have an office?
A: We are using the power of the Internet to keep
your costs down. By NOT having an office and employee's, we are able to pass the savings on to you.
This is why we are less expensive than EVERY other Sailing Charter Company in San Diego.
Q: Can I bring my own food and
A: YES, We allow BYOB and encourage you to bring your
favorite beverages and munchies. We recommend finger foods (small sandwiches, cheese and crackers,
etc), as they are easiest to eat on the boat. We call it BYOB for a reason, as we do not keep
cups,plates, and napkins on the boat. While having a bit to drink on a boat is a lot of fun, having
too much to drink can be a safety hazard, so we request people have a great time, but not
overindulge. We do not charge a corking fee!
Q: Will we have the boat to ourselves or will
there be others sailing with us?
A: If you want to have the boat to yourselves, you
may book a PRIVATE CRUISE. This does not apply to discount coupon holders. Discount
coupon vouchers may have an additional couple or two sailing with you. So far, we've seen some
fantastic new friendships made on our cruises, so don't worry about sailing with strangers, as
they could end up being your newest best friends and sharing their wine and food with you. We
don't sail with more than 6 people per cruise, so there is plenty of room to have
Q: Can I bring my dog?
A: NO - We don't want our furry friends to get sick,
so we discourage bringing any pets.
Q: What about service
A: Sorry - No Pets !!!
Q: Can I bring our
A: No infants please. Unless you have reserved
the entire boat for a cruise, no infants are allowed!
Q: Are children allowed on your
A: Yes, children over the age 7 are allowed. Sailing
with kids under 7 can be stressful for the parents and the crew. We don't have time to
help you babysit your child and there are plenty of ways they could get hurt.
We discourage bringing children along unless you reserve the entire boat. Kids from 7-10 are more
mature and seem to follow instructions and can get involved in the sailing of the boat.
Q: How long does a sailing cruise usually
A: Our cruises are between 2.5 and 3.0
Q: What will I see on our
A: We always see Sea Lions, Pelicans and Gulls,
and Dolphins are quite frequent playing in the bay.
Q: What should I wear to go
A: This depends on the time of year we are sailing.
Summer is hot, and Winter is much cooler. We always send a list of what to wear, what to bring, and
what not to bring along with every confirmation we send out. We suggest dressing in layers
(T-shirt, sweatshirt, wind jacket is the minimum of what we'd suggest, long pants or wind pants are
recommended in winter. Any extra warm clothes can be kept down below inside the boat if you don’t
use them. Hats that can be tied on are also good.
Please wear soft-light soled shoes such as tennis shoes or sneakers; No black bottom shoes, heels
or cowboy boots, which can become slippery on the wet decks. Try to wear shoes that are non-marking
(white or light soles sneakers preferred) Also, don’t forget your cameras & sunscreen!
For winter trips dress warmly. We recommend a warm jacket, gloves and a hat that doesn’t come off
easily. You can also wear long underwear and or wind-pants if you get cold easily. Remember it will
be cooler on the water than on the land because of the wind.
Q: What if the weather goes bad and we can't
A: We will cancel trips the day of the trip if
the weather is bad and you will receive the choice to move your reservation to a better day
or receive a full refund if you live out of town. If the fog is drizzling or there is
absolutely no wind you will be given a choice. You may go out anyway because you want to see
the ocean and all the sea creatures that live there or you may reschedule to another day OR
receive a full refund if you live out of town, if that would be your
Q: What is your cancelation
A: If you must cancel less than 48 hrs
before your trip please understand that we have probably turned other guests away while
holding your spot so unless we are able to book another charter for the same time & duration,
no credits or refunds will be
issued. To be fair if we can re-book the date we were holding for
you, we will give you a full refund or reschedule you for the next available cruise you had
