There are two exclusive features that only Gone Sailing can offer out of all charter companies. The first is that with your charter you gain access to the pool and amenities at Hyatt Regency Mission Bay Resort & Spa on the day of your outing. The other is the opportunity to explore the open ocean. Every other charter service is only licensed for the coastline of San Diego (which is gorgeous), but there is more beauty to take in beyond it, and only Gone Sailing Charters can grant you that access.
The 42' Catalina yacht is a luxurious craft you will come to appreciate as you learn more about her during your expedition. Catalina is a US-based boat maker and considered a world leader in the industry. The architecture of the craft means she cuts through the water cleanly, making the sailing as smooth and comfortable as possible. Above deck there is ample space and bimini shades for anyone who may want out of the sun. Below deck you will find a fully equipped galley, seating areas, washroom, and more. The Catalina yacht is kept immaculate, while still being warm and welcoming.
Gone Sailing Charters has earned their excellent reputation through experience, service, amenities, and fun. Expect to be educated, entertained, and relaxed on a voyage with this world-class sailing outfit.
