Sailing in San Diego

See an aircraft carrier up close; enjoy views of the Coronado Bridge, the downtown skyline and fabulous sunsets. Observe dolphins, seals, and whales while sailing along our picturesque shoreline. Sunny and 75 degree temperatures allow for year round sailing. Comfortable seating is available in a protected cockpit so no one gets wet! Sailing is done on the flat protected waters of San Diego’s stunning bay or the passive Pacific Ocean.
Pack a basket for a picnic lunch or sunset dinner!

San Diego sailing is at it’s finest between 12 pm and sunset.
Rent a boat, hire a captain and enjoy a day of sailing on the bay or ocean!
For more information or scheduling, please call  Harbor Sailboats at 619-291-9568.

Hazards to Navigation
A good source of boating and navigation information for all boaters is the U.S. Coast Guard’s Local Notice to Mariners.

Point Loma
At the entrance to the San Diego Bay there are several areas to watch. To seaward of Point Loma and the lighthouse are thick kelp beds, which run for about 1.5 miles south of the point.While the fishing is great, it’s very easy to get kelp caught in engine intakes. Just inside the kelp line, there are breakers near the tip of Point Loma.To the east of the San Diego Bay entrance is a submerged jetty that runs for approximately 2 miles offshore; rocks are visible at low tide. This borders the Zuniga Shoal, further to the west.

North Island
At approximately 32° 41′ 10.2″N 117° 13′ 40.7″ W, near North Island, is a submerged jetty.

Shelter Island
There are shoaling waters near the entrance to Shelter Island. Be careful when entering near the southern tip and follow the marked channel.

Coronado
There is a shoal just west of the Coronado Ferry Landing and east of the carrier basin on the Coronado side of the bay. Another shoal is just at the first dogleg heading south on the south side of the Coronado Bridge heading towards Chula Vista and the entrance to the Sweetwater Channel. One more shoal is between the #1 green buoy and the amphibious base southeast at the entrance to Glorietta Bay. It can be trouble on average tides and to smaller vessels at low tides.
