    Coming from Interstate 5/downtown San Diego: Follow the signs to the Airport. You are now on Harbor Drive. Between Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 is a stop light. Make a left at the stop light onto Harbor Island Drive. (at that stop light to your left is a sign saying “Harbor Island”) Drive ~200 yards and on your right will be the Sheraton Hotel Marina Tower- with a big “S” on top of the 12 story building. Park in the hotel parking lot or at a spot nearby. Walk straight through the lobby and exit through the large glass doors that enter into the Marina. You will see a Whale Fountain in front of you, make a right and walk ~200 yards to a gated entrance that will lead you to the marina’s docks. We will greet you at the gate. 


    Self Parking is available to you at the Sheraton Harbor Island Hotel & Marina. Also, we hand out tickets after each tour to provide you with a discount for day rate parking. There is also a public parking lot along Harbor Island Drive, as well as along the San Diego bayside.

    Note: We are so close to the airport that many times flight crews walk across the street from the airport to this Hotel.

    AT SEA
    Being a private charter company, versatility is one of our most prominent and unique strengths. Our twin engines can race you out to the ocean faster than any conventional sailboat, but we can also cut the engines at any time for a quiet, clean sailing experience. We can accommodate up to 48 guests plus crew on board at any time, and our interior and exterior spaces are designed so that in the unlikely event that the San Diego weather isn’t perfect, everyone can still fit comfortably in the salon. And while we have a wide variety of planned outings available, you can choose your own adventure, and charter the expedition that’s just right for you!

    One of the many things that set us apart from other sailing options in San Diego is that we are Coast Guard certified to sail in the open ocean, not just in the San Diego Bay. This leaves your options wide open for your custom yacht charter. San Diego has many amazing shoreline attractions for day trips, sunset sailing & sunset cruises, as well as unforgettable overnight trips to Catalina Island, where you can anchor for one or more nights and explore that unique, sparsely populated and idyllic island. For the wildlife lover, the months of November through April tend to be perfect for getting up close and personal with Gray, Finback, and even Blue Whales during their southern migration down to Mexico. Other amazing ocean creatures such as pods of dolphins, sharks, sea lions, and seals can be observed year-round as well. Our expertly-trained captain and crew make for a safe and non-disruptive experience for the wildlife, and a smooth and comfortable experience for our guests. On-board, we have modern audio-visual capabilities for corporate presentations or private celebrations with 2 interior flat screen TV’s and surround sound. Options abound for dining onboard the Aolani, from our fine selection of snacks and sandwiches, to gourmet catering from some of San Diego’s favorite restaurants. A full bar of premium liquors and wines is also available!

    With all of the versatility of this amazing catamaran, the options for how to enjoy your chartered adventure with Aolani are virtually endless! Let us help you custom design your ideal excursion on the water, with a no-obligation consultation.
