With the past heat wave we just experienced in San Diego it's time to think about Summer - Summer in San Diego on a Yacht! Have You Ever Just Wanted To “Slip Away” For A Few Days From Everyday Life? Most people do, but end up staying in the same old generic hotel room. When was the last time you called a friend and said, “You should see this place, it’s fantastic! Can’t remember?” Plan to get away on one of our beautifully appointed yachts: Slipaway - a 45’ Hardin Ketch; Silver Cloud – a 46’ Sea Ray Express Cruiser; Sea Horse - a 47' Beneteau; Ode To Our Joy - a 50' Bayliner; or our newest yacht to our fleet Elegante - a 82' Classic Motor Yacht. All of these fantastic yachts are moored at the secluded Shelter Cove Marina. For about the same price as a hotel room you can be sleeping on the water in San Diego’s famous America’s Cup Harbor. With our yachts you are not renting a room, you are living in a fully functional vessel. Come experience what it is really like to live at sea.

Another Satisfied Guest


We love to make our guests happy – and it shows. Here is another great review from a recent stay! And, this lovely couple submitted a few photos from their stay!

“It was our 25th Wedding Anniversary and we wanted to do something a little different. So we booked a 2 night stay on Ode to our Joy. It was absolutely perfect! The owner, Shaun, met us and couldn't have been more helpful. The boat was beautiful, spacious, airy, light and had everything we needed for our stay. The bed was very comfortable and cozy. The weather was glorious and spent a lot of time sitting on deck enjoying the marvelous views and bobbing about on the water. We plan to stay again very soon.”

Come and Sail Away!

Now is the perfect time to not only sleep aboard one of our great yachts, but also an ideal time to pay a little extra for the opportunity to go out to sea with our chartering program!

Most of our boats are available for charters for 2 or 4 hours, or if you have a special event, you can even rent out one of our yachts for just an afternoon event. Be it a wedding, remembrance service, or a birthday, we can help you have a very special occasion to remember.

We hope to see you soon on one of our six lovely yachts.

Boat Bed and Breakfast–Reviews


Here are a few recent reviews from some of our guests:

“The Crazy Notion was absolutely one of the best experiences I've had in a long time. We live locally and wanted a fun weekend staycation and this was the perfect place. So, much more interesting, exciting and romantic than staying at a hotel. It is very spacious inside and we loved waking up in the morning and having coffee out on the deck while the sun was just coming up and spending the evenings with a glass of wine watching the sunset. Also, many very good and convenient restaurants all within walking. We will certainly be back to try the rest of the fleet!!”

Gwyn G. – La Mesa, CA August 15, 2013

“My wife and I stayed on the Silver Cloud for the 2013 Memorial Day weekend this past May. We a were little apprehensive, and now we can say that it was absolutely the right choice. We were pleasantly surprised that there was plenty of room for the two of us. If there had been another couple (or possibly three people) things would have been a bit cramped, but it would have been o.k. as long as they were close friends and not high maintenance types. The amenities all work wonderfully, and morning coffee on the back deck is awesome. We had to tear ourselves away from the serenity of the scene. We never used the heat or A/C - just opening and closing the hatches allowed sufficient temperature control. The bathroom/locker rooms on shore were clean, and there are three showers with partitions and locking doors, no lines (in the men’s anyway). The fitness facility could use a little updating, but it was sufficient (the lone treadmill is very new/updated, though). We went to a concert and dinner at Humphrey's by the Bay which is about a five minute walk; also, the beer/sausages at Fathom are divine. Driving to Sea World is under 10 minutes, and La Jolla was 15-20 minutes depending on traffic. We are already planning another stay on another vessel. A great vacation for being active, or just relaxing and sunbathing.”

Cory L. – Santa Monica, CA May 29, 2013

“This boat (Slipaway) is amazing! Plenty of room for a couple. Everything you need is provided on this boat. The Shelter Island marina is clean, quiet, and secure. The harbor is conveniently located to get around town. We took advantage of some of the restaurant discounts and found some great new spots. If you like being close to the water this is a great option. Can wait to go back!”

Heather K. – Phoenix, AZ July 8, 2013

We’re glad to see so many happy people come and stay with us, we hope that you too can join us for a relaxing stay on any one of our six yachts in our growing fleet! We go out of our way to make your stay memorable, enjoyable, and unique.
