My first sailing experience was disposing of a loved one's ashes at sea. It was a difficult time, yet it was handled so professionally and respectfully by the captain that there was a sense of peace. The second and third trips out were just for...More

Sailing w/ Carrera Sailing and Capt. Gene is a great way to experience Monterrey. My kids (age 9 & 7) have never been sailing before and both walked away wanting more! Saw lots of wildlife and sunshine!

Thank John R
Carrerasailing, Owner at Carrera Sailing, responded to this review

Dear John R., I am glad the kids walked away wanting more sailing which is precisely what we strive to achieve, especially with kids. Your review is greatly appreciated.

We hired Carrera Sailing for the purpose of scattering my parent's ashes, pursuant to their final wishes. Traveling from Texas, we relied on the email and phone contact we had prior to the trip with Captain Maly. He was professional and courteous every step of...More

I booked a 1 pm sail on Monterey Bay for me and a friend visiting from Texas. When the day arrived, instead of sun, Mother Nature delivered an overcast morning with the threat of rain. Capt. Gene called me around eleven to offer a cancellation...More

Dear Kathleen P, good thing that the weather forecast was wrong and that the sun and the sea life cooperated as much as it did that day. Thank you for your wonderful review.

We did a late morning sail with Captain Gene, and had a lovely time. It's really different being out on a sailboat than on a big impersonal cruise boat. With the sails up and the engine off, it's a totally different experience. I love the...More

I had a absolute wonderful time. The captain phoned me letting me know it's quite overcast and if I wanted to cancel that it would not be a issue. I personally understand he has no control over the weather . I still came and enjoyed...More

Carrerasailing, Owner at Carrera Sailing, responded to this review

Dear Crystal K., thank your for your prompt review and I am glad that the sunset sail met your expectations. I think that the whale sightings and what ended up a lovely sunset was due to the birthday boy's lucky star.

Dear julesandlisa2016, it was great sailing with your family and I greatly appreciate your review. Unfortunately this year July and August were averaging 5 degrees Fahrenheit less than the norm, but at least the sea life was cooperating!
