It’s been said that a change of perspective can change your life.

Life on the water surely affords such a change, and while a three hour champagne sunset cruise on JADA probably won’t change your life (though we’d like to think it would!), it can definitely break you out of your terrestrial ennui. Life on land is boring!

Step aboard JADA for a sunset cruise, and leave, literally, the world behind. Well, at least the part that isn’t covered by water. A sailboat like JADA can take you places you’ve never been, literally and figuratively. JADA’s sunset cruise will afford you a perspective on San Diego you never thought possible. Gaze across the bay at a long phalanx of San Diego skyscrapers, a testimony to the inexorable march of progress, and realize that you, suddenly, are not a part of it.

You’re on a sailboat, far away. Miles of raw ocean separate you from the hustle and bustle, the traffic jams, the crowds. You can reach out and pinch the One America Plaza between your fingers. Hold out your hand and have a friend take the obligatory picture of you holding the entire city on your palm.

Even better, recline on the deck and let one of JADA’s expert hosts serve you what they describe as “light snacks” but in reality could be half a dinner. Gourmet cheeses on a variety of crackers, chicken and apple sausage bites, thin sliced cucumber with a delicate swirl of cured salmon. The champagne, wine and beer are part of the package, as well, and they flow freely.

Sail around for a bit and as the sun sets, Captain Dave and his crew will take you on an up-close and personal visit to some of the harbor’s most interesting sites: the USS Midway, the Star of India, the USS Ronald Reagan, the HMS Surprise and the last remaining Swift Boat on the planet (hey, John Kerry! Are you listening!?), are part of the tour. Captain Dave and First Mate Gene have an encyclopedic knowledge of all these things, and their narratives, alone, are worth the price of admission.

As you ease back into the dock and rejoin terra firma, there will be a letdown, I assure you. You have to release yourself from the freedom of the sea and return to the struggles of the land. Cars, traffic, crowds.

But don’t worry! JADA will always be here to take you away again!

My family had such a wonderful, peaceful, and memorable experience spreading my father's ashes thanks to the kind and friendly staff. Carole was amazing coordinating with my mom who was having a bit of a tough time organizing the service. She gave my mom all the needed information for our guests and spoke with her several times before hand to make sure everything went smoothly. The crew was there to help and were so incredibly friendly. They even had a bluetooth speaker for us to use to play music and served us while aboard. Carole even recommended some nice local dinner spots as we were not local. Overall they were extremely accommodating and things could not have gone better to honor my fathers wishes. When I thanked carole for her kindness she told me that weddings and funerals are two ceremonies that people remember for years to come so it was important to her to make sure that our experience was something to remember. I was very touched to say the least.read more

Definitely a must do in San Diego! Top Notch. I wouldn't think twice about bringing family and friends to enjoy a day like this again and again. Carole and her crew were absolutely wonderful, she even had a naturist to show us all there was to see and enjoy !! Very personable. She was eager to get us the best whale watching experience possible. She continued to make sure we were comfortable and fed as we sailed the ocean. The Jada is a beautiful historical vessel.Thank you very much for the great trip, you guys did an amazing job, we enjoyed the tour very much! highly recommend!!read more

What an awesome ride! Everyone was so friendly and the view was great! It was a little bit of energy to navigate to the back of the hotel, but there is tons of parking and really pretty easy to find your way. It is definitely worth it! The marina was so pretty and the boat was great. read more

I have been on this beautifully restored boat for a number of sails, both private and public, and have always had a great time; that’s saying a lot for someone who was never crazy about sailing! But Carole, and her crew have made a convert of me. They are the perfect hosts for a smooth, safe sail around the harbor, all the while serving yummy refreshments, sharing their knowledge of San Diego Bay and landmarks, and making us all feel so at home. I highly recommend this for a wonderful sailing experience.read more

Had a fabulous time on the Jada celebrating my 60th birthday with a costumed Pirate Party! It turned out to be a beautiful day for sailing, and many of my 24 swashbuckling guests all said it was the most fun birthday party they ever attended! The captain and crew were very accommodating in every way, from giving us the safety talk, to serving refreshments, to making sure everyone was safe on board while we were having fun sailing. I couldn't have wished for a better way to celebrate this milestone birthday, proving that, at any age, we're all still kids at heart! It was just the perfect day in every way!read more
