Liberty is a classic sailboat that is classy, roomy, comfortable, and looks like something you'd spy alongside the Black Pearl in a the Pirates of the Caribbean film. Liberty has a wooden mast, is gaffed-rigged, and has authentic decor accents.In addition, the captain only uses traditional sailing methods. We are a perfect choice for individuals or small groups.
All sailing tours, whether around the harbor or on the open ocean, include craft beer, white wine, soda, water and light snacks. They are 3 hours in length, unless otherwise noted. You will get up close and personal views of the downtown San Diego skyline, Coronado Bridge, the Maritime Museum and her flagship 'Star of India', the USS Midway, the USS Carl Vinson, wildlife such as sea lions and dolphins, and the Pt. Loma lighthouse.
Whale watching is best from December- April; Tours are a half day (typically 4 hours in length). Sighting whales is not guaranteed, but a good time out on the open ocean is a sure bet.
Let the wind, tides, and Captain Philip's expertise guide your experience. Or heck, you can take the helm for a while if you'd like. Participation welcome and encouraged!
