Frequently Asked Questions

What Can I Bring? 

You are welcome to bring a snack or beverage, favorite CD/ IPod, binoculars and, of course, your camera. For overnight charters we will have a list of items to remember. 

Will I Be Safe? 

Safety is our first and foremost priority for our Guests as well as the crew. The Windchime is a well maintained wood sailboat. The boat is inspected regularly. We will have a safety meeting before departure.  

What About Bad Weather? 

It is out intention for every one to have a most excellent adventure every time out, sometimes is not the case. Things such as the weather and how different people do on the water is beyond our control. We can not offer rain checks or refunds.

We will speak with you 1 or 2 days prior to the trip about the weather and guests to make sure we have a good mix. If weather conditions are not in the best interest to go out, we will either refund your reservation fee or another date can be reserved at the Guest digression and boat availability. 

Will I Get Seasick? 

Although the Windchime is very stable if this is your concern, we suggest you visit your drug store for any over the counter medicine to ensure your well being.

What to Wear?


 Flat shoes and flip flops only will be allowed aboard. Deck shoes are the best.

San Diego is well-known for having one of the best climates of any city in the world. We happily have an abundance of sunshine and warm, comfortable days. With an average of only ten inches of rain a year, we usually experience rain only in February and early March if we have a rainy season at all. It is usually slightly cooler on the water so we recommend that you bring layers of clothing such as jackets or sweaters so that you are comfortable throughout your cruise.
