The Perfect Summer Picnic and Sail

Ahh, summertime! There’s nothing quite like feeling the sun’s warmth on your skin, the sound of waves crashing, and the aroma of a freshly-prepared picnic lunch. For the ultimate summer experience, why not combine these two activities and enjoy a Picnic and Sail? Perfect for a family outing or a romantic date, a picnic and sail is an ideal way to spend a summer day.

Pick your Boat

San Diego Bay offers plenty of options when it comes to boat charters, such as sailboats, motorboats, and catamarans. 

Sea Monkey Adventures offers our 35-foot yacht for the perfect setting of a picnic at the bow. It has seating for up to six passengers, so whether you are looking for a romantic sailboat ride for two or something larger to accommodate your family, Sea Monkey Adventures is a great option for a picnic set upon the water.

What to Pack

When planning a Picnic and Sail, a few items are necessary to bring along. For a romantic date, a charcuterie board, mini sandwiches, and chocolate-covered strawberries will make a lovely picnic. If 21 and over, our crew will provide wine glasses and a bottle of white wine made from French Muscat grapes. 

Bring swimsuits, sunscreen, and appropriate clothing if it’s a warm day and the whole family is going, as you can anchor and take a dip in Glorietta Bay (for 3+ hour trips). The Sea Monkey will provide complimentary snacks such as popcorn, carrots and hummus, banana chips, and unlimited Bananas!

Additionally, drinks like fresh juices, water, and if 21+, a bottle of white wine and a 12-pack of beer, are provided. You can also bring your own food and drinks as desired ($50.00 corkage fee on 25% alcohol/volume or higher).


Your picnic and sail can include a wealth of activities. The captain can take you anywhere in and around San Diego Bay. 

We can go past Point Loma, where you get to experience the tranquility of the open sea. Or we can sail across the bay toward Coronado where we can anchor and take a dip in Glorietta Bay, float around with some floaties, or simply enjoy the scenery while paddling around. 

Alternatively, if you’re looking for a more leisurely experience, you can sunbathe on the boat’s deck and watch the world go by. And for those feeling adventurous, searching for seals and dolphins around the bay is a great activity.

Enjoy beautiful San Diego Bay this summer with us at Sea Monkey Adventures for a wonderful sailing picnic.
