Pacifica Sailing Charters
There's nothing like a day out on San Diego Bay, where the breeze tousles your hair, the sun warms your shoulders, and the seabird sing you a never-ending song. Many in-the-know passengers make the trip aboard one of Pacifica's three storied yachts. The charter company helps groups hit the waves in luxury and safety, whether guests are gathering for a celebration, a relaxing cruise, or a retreat. On a given trip, you might catch a glimpse of sea lions and dolphins, the downtown skyline, or docked aircraft carriers and destroyers at the Naval Base San Diego. Whatever the trip, it's up to you whether your idea of a great day on the water is all about sightseeing, or more about lounging under the open sky with a BYOB beverage in your hand.
