Sail on Monterey’s only Coast Guard inspected sailing vessel!
Sail Monterey is the oldest and largest sailing center in Monterey
Experience beautiful Monterey Bay with friends and family.
Departs every day about 1 hour and 30 minutes before the sunset.
Sailing is an eco-friendly way to see the bay. Our sail boats use the power of the wind on 90% of each trip, burning diesel only to exit and enter the harbor. Meanwhile, other boating trips consume huge amounts of fossil fuels.
Professional and Safe
Our captains are well trained, professional, and they always put safety first.
At maximum capacity, we carry 16 passengers for our public sailing cruises. Those that prefer a more intimate experience appreciate our small passenger capacity.
Have you always wanted to learn to sail? Our licensed instructors have taught and certified boat loads of happy students. We proudly offer American Sailing Association certified courses. ASA certifications are valid for life and recognized internationally. We are dedicated to teaching safety and seamanship and give you the confidence on the water. Once certified, you can qualify to rent our boats.
If you would like a casual pace, we also offer individual sailing lessons for those that want more time on the water to hone their skills.
