What you'll do

One Hour Family Sailing Cruise on Monterey Bay

This trip is 1 hour and 15 minutes. It is great way to experience Monterey Bay from the water. If you would like to spend more time on the water, look into booking a private experience on one of our monohull boats. During this experience, we will enjoy a short harbor tour for a chance of sighting sea otters, seals and sea lions. After exiting the harbor, we will set sail and enjoy cutting through the water with no engine noise! This is an eco-friendly and exciting way to see Monterey Bay and a piece of the Pacific Ocean. We serve complimentary wine on all of our cruises for passengers 21 and over. Although we cannot guarantee marine mammal sightings, we frequently see seals, sea lions, sea otters, and sometimes whales and dolphins! Also know, you can save $10 per ticket by booking through our Sail Monterey office or website.

My name is Paul, I am a manager, captain, and sailing instructor here at Sail Monterey. All our captains, myself included, have years of experience sailing the Pacific Ocean. As well, all of us are US Coast Guard licensed captains. Here at Sail Monterey, we are passionate about our bay, Pacific Ocean, and of course sailing! Some of us have crossed oceans, some of us have dreams of sailing around the globe, but mostly we just love showing you the magic of a boat under sail. If you sail with us, you may have myself, Dan, Landon, Eric, Wim or Danny as your captain. Ask us any questions you can think of. We hope you have a wonderful experience!

Capt. Paul was truly gifted at understanding what we wanted from the experience. I was celebrating my 60th bday and very clear with him ahead of time regarding expectations for the experience. He offered great suggestions after the tour on what else we might be interested in doing that we actually hadn't found out about.

Paul is a fantastic host. He is very personable, passionate, and genuinely interested in getting to know you. He was so welcoming and easy to talk to which just added to the gorgeous ride. The boat is really fun and the location is beautiful. He knows his sailing and teaches you as you go. I would highly recommend this experience and even a step further in taking sailing lessons from him!

Fantastic experience! Captain Paul was lovely, the boat ride was perfect, and we really couldn’t have asked for anything more. We saw otters, sea lions, lots of bird life. Would recommend to anyone in the area!

This was a wonderful experience. We went in the off season and had wonderful luck with the weather. We basically had a private tour! Captain Paul was charming and engaging. He had fun facts about the area, but didn’t try to intrude when we wanted to hang out by ourselves. 10/10!

An amazing experience. We got to see jelly fish, dolphins, sea lions, and even saw a sunfish. Paul was really welcoming and the sailing is beautiful and peaceful.
