Tour description provided by Viator

Sail away on San Diego Bay on a thrilling sailing adventure aboard an America's Cup racing yacht owned by Dennis Conner. With a maximum of 20 people per boat, this small-group sailing experience is a unique way to enjoy the Californian coastline. Also included in your nautical day is access to the Maritime Museum, spend as much time as you like at the museum before or after you sail.

Your vessel on this exciting sailing trip will be either Stars & Stripes from the 1995 America's Cup, one of the most famous racing vessels in America's Cup history, or Abracadabra from the 2000 America's Cup. If its a busy day, both yachts will go out and you'll be treated to the exhilaration of a real race as the 2 boats race side by side along the bay.

Within 5 minutes of leaving the dock, the crew will have the sails raced and engines off. Catching the wind you'll cruise smoothly and quietly across San Diego Bay enjoying fantastic uninterrupted views from anywhere on the 80-ft boat. You can pitch in and feel like part of the crew, or simply sit back and relax on the decks.

This once-in-a-lifetime racing-boat experience in San Diego will not only be an unforgettable nautical adventure, but also give you second-to-none bragging rights at home.

Also included is admission to San Diego Maritime Museum. The museum preserves one of the largest collections of historic sea vessels in the United States including the world's oldest active ship 'Star of India'. Visit the museum before or after the cruise, the choice is yours (must be on the same day as your cruise).
