About the location
San Diego is one of the premier locations in the USA for sailing. In addtion to the near perfect weather year round we also have abundant sea life with sea otters, seals, sea lions, porposies, Finback whales, Blue Whales, Orcas, Humpback whales, and California Grey whales are the most common. In the spring they migrate close enough to shore to see them by eye and by boat they are very close and the young babies are very inquisative. This year a Beluga ( white whale ) was spotted but this was probably and escaped Russian whale which they use for military purposes.
During the summer snorkeling and swimming are always fun either in the harbor or out in the kelp beds offshore where you can drift swim down the coast to Mexico.
In addition to San Diego harbor and near shore you can also sail up to Mission Bay area.
San Diego is a wonderful spot to vacation with many things to do - including Balboa Park, Motorcyle riding the mountains and coast highway, mountain bike rides, also there is a paved bike trail around San Diego harbor where you have to take the San Diego ferry to complete the ride for a full 360. Nice views of the harbor when you do this.
In addtion to sight seeing San Diego harbor is the largest Naval base on the Pacific Ocean - and when sailing your see them in drydock and anchored. In addition to the active ships you can visit the USS Midway and also the USMC air museum at Mirmar Naval Airstation. You can also watch the Navy Seals train some times and at night when they are firing there 50 cal machine guns it can be intersting on the beach watching their tracers. The North Island Naval Air Station has lots of the helo's, tilt wings, and navy jets coming and going all the time - can get nosiy when they fly over your boat when sailing. There is also a sub base here which is fun to sail by and see not only the US submarines but sometimes subs from other counties visiting the USA for tours and refits. I have ID guides on the boat to tell the type of Naval ship and aircraft the you are seeing.
One of the new items I have seen this year are submarine drones that surface when they are coming into the harbor.
For any questions on anything in San Diego will be glad to help out.
