Large Blue Water Sailboat. Lots of teak and large walkways. Very comfortable with lots of seating.
Sloop rigged with a 51 foot mast. We encourage guests to help hoist the main sail and trim the sails using large chrome winches. We teach the basics of sailing and go over a few sailing terms. We actually set sail and begin looking for dolphins and whales within the first half hour. Oceanside Harbor is a fairly small harbor, this gives us the advantage of real ocean discovery within minutes/ unlike the larger harbors. Guests are welcome to bring their own food and drink. The captain and crew usually provide light snacks and La Croix waters. add ons like champagne is available- Just ask! We hope you enjoy your super relaxing ocean adventure.
For groups larger than six, please contact us.

Location and Destination Guide

Usually this boat operates around Oceanside, CA.

From sightseeing to whale watching, do more with a sailing charter in San Diego. There’s a good reason San Diego is called the finest city, so come find out why with a private boat rental from Sailo.

When it comes to Californian lifestyle, we think San Diego is the city that most encapsulates the Golden State ethos. Year round sunshine? Check. Beaches and surf culture? Check. Laid back but buzzing city? Check. And, of course, lots of opportunity to play on the water with your very own yacht charter!
