My experience with Attitude Adjustment was awesome. They exceeded my expectations and were so helpful. I bought a boat that I knew nothing about and I hired them to help me move it from San Diego to the Bay Area. While along for the ride, Captain Mark taught me everything I needed to know about navigating my way in the future as well as docking the boat. I'd recommend these guys to anyone.Scott L.Yacht Owner
My husband and I have a 50' sailboat and we wanted to sail from San Diego to Hawaii without all the stress of navigating and handling the boat and rigging. We decided on Attitude Adjustment Sailing's captaining services and hired Captain Mark and two crew members to take us on our voyage so we could just enjoy it. We are so glad we did it. The weather got a bit rough for a bit and after going through that, we're glad we had professionals on board. The entire trip was so lovely and exciting all at the same time and we're glad we had the company of the Attitude Adjustment Sailing crew.Kelly R.Yacht Owner
I use AAS all the time to help me move and dock boats from one part of San Diego to another. They're so great to work with and their rates are the best around!Keith T.Marine Mechanic
