Whale WatchCabinSail

There is nothing as spectacular or exhilarating as standing at the bow of your privately chartered boat, viewing the dazzling sight of San Diego's skyline. San Diego is well known for its Gray Whale watching season (December-March), and it’s an incredible experience to witness first hand!


The Adventuress is a gorgeous 60 foot sailing catamaran. Her beautiful teak interior and spacious outdoor decks are sure to impress. The Adventuress is an ideal offshore yacht for private whale watching San Diego because her wide beam makes her incredibly stable. Catamarans sail flat and do not heel like traditional monohull sailboats making for a more comfortable and relaxing offshore experience. (Includes lunch)
