Sailing Adventures to Ensenada, Mexico

Join us for a trip from Long Beach to beautiful Ensenada, Baja California.  And you can join us for the return trip north as well!  Both the Southbound and Northbound legs are limited to 3 crew, so get in on the fun now and reserve your spot!

Southbound to Ensenada
Our departure date from Long Beach is Saturday evening, October 19th.  We’ll sail overnight down to San Diego, and stop for the afternoon.  We head out Sunday night the 20th with plans to arrive in Ensenada early-morning, October 21st.

The southbound trip is a great opportunity for two nights of sailing, flying the spinnaker and getting time on the water.   Santana Sailing / NauticEd students can also get skill endorsements for night time navigation, spinnaker, and offshore passage making.

You can step off on San Diego, or continue with us down to Ensenada.  In Ensenada, stay for a few days at the beautiful Hotel Coral Marina (or another hotel of your choice) or head back to San Diego!

Northbound to Long Beach
Our return trip back to Long Beach is planned for October 26th, subject to change depending on weather conditions. We plan for a late afternoon departure, and an overnight sail to clear in to San Diego in the morning. 

You can step off on San Diego, or continue with us up to Long Beach, with a possible stop in Dana Point.  Santana Sailing / NauticEd students can also get skill endorsements for night time navigation, offshore passage making, and possibly heavy-weather, depending on conditions.

Thanks for being a great instructor on the Channel Islands trip!  I learned so much as you patiently answered all my questions.  A lot was covered and I feel like I made so much progress in the “big boat” category.  Chrissie was especially helpful in coaching me on the bow and stern anchoring too!  As well as staying on the compass heading during my night watch :). Tell her thanks again.  Hope to fit in another trip soon.  Smooth sailing and fair winds,
— Susan O., October 2017
