Lovely experience!! Beautiful view from downtown skyline San Diego and sunset. The captain of sailboat experience is super nice and friendly. And the playlist couldn’t have been better! I’m definitely doing it again soon!


Eco Boat Rentals sailing tour is fantastic. The sailboat is clean, spacious, and has some nice touches. Captain is an engaging, friendly host who knows a lot about the San Diego bay. The sailing tour is also very good value! Highly recommended if you visit San Diego with family!
