Cloudia sails out of San Diego Bay. In this two and a half hour adventure, you will experience San Diego from the deck of our vintage sailing vessel.  You are sure to be captivated by the local sea life, including sea lions, a variety of birds and possibly even dolphins.

We leave from America’s Cup Harbor in San Diego Bay and sail along Shelter Island past an amazing collection of marine birds and barking sea lions waiting for their chance at an anchovy.

Continuing along Point Loma on our way to the Pacific Ocean, we pass Fort Rosecrans, Ballast Point and the historic Point Loma lighthouse. Sit back, relax and take in the magnificent San Diego coastline on this breathtaking tour on the open ocean.

We encourage participation. It’s up to you, your ambitions, abilities and attitude. The captain will have ultimate control of the ship and its crew’s movements.

In The Movies

Although the Cloudia should have received a Hollywood Star for her unique design, history and splendor. She did make it as “the lead role” in her debut to the big screen in a Warner Brothers movie – The Sea Gypsies (1978). It’s a story about a family’s adventures on a sailing trip around the world. Your friends and family will love that you took you took a tour on a ship used in a Hollywood movie.

Thar she blows!!

Whale watching on the Cloudia – what a great afternoon! You take off from a real fishing harbor in a sloop with 10 to 20 other guests – so very personal experience, not like those big crafts 200+. The young crew was so informative about whales, sealife, San Diego’s marine history – and all the while taking up sails, showing us how things worked, and watching for signs of dolphins, whales, etc. We saw a grouping of Humpback whales and later Grey whales along with numerous dolphins. Thoroughly enjoyed it – feels like going sailing on a friend’s boat!

Whale watching

My wife and I live in the Arizona desert and we love it. When we want a change we head for San Diego. In the 30+ years that we have traveled there we had our best experience and most fun last month when we went whale watching on The Cloudia. The ship is magnificent. The owner, captain and crew made our trip one that we will remember forever. We saw many whales, dolphins and lots of other sea life. The price is right and the experience was grand.

Excellent afternoon of whale watching

5 of us had a picture perfect afternoon on a wonderful old wooden boat. The captain and crew were very knowledgeable and found numerous whales and dolphins. The seating was very spacious and we saw other people on the cattle boats crammed around the railings looking for whales as we sat on comfy cushions watching whales. It would be a really great boat for a sunset cruise around the bay.
