Sunset Sails Catamaran in San Diego. 2.5 hours. Small Groups

Catamarans really are more fun to sail with the special bow nets designed for sunbathing, and lounging around watching sea life, and water rush by. The swift and stable ocean design ensures a comfortable, and exhilarating ride without the rolling and leaning that often causes seasickness on other boats. When you are welcomed aboard, you'll feel comfortable right away because we really do like people, and with such small groups, you've escaped the crowds. We always say it's great to be a tourist, but better to not feel like a tourist. With cushioned seating with back rests, our catamarans are comfortable for all ages of guests from young kids to seniors. A perfect way to spend a lazy day, unwinding and relaxing, no cares in the world.
