Selecting Your Trip

Private Charters are exactly that, private. Select one of these options if you want the boat all to yourself.

Open Adventures on the other hand, let you book individual spaces. It takes a booking of 2 people or more to start an “Open” trip on any given date, after that, the system will allow single bookings.

We guarantee you plenty of space and the best service around by limiting our sales to no more than 6 passengers on any trip. Whatever option you choose, your day will be guided by a knowledgeable and friendly, fully certified USCG licensed Captain.

"Completely spectacular experience! I will bring people to Catalina just so we can do this again. The guide was knowledgeable and friendly and the boat was surpassingly beautiful. The best way to see the island is sailing around it. Really lovely. Absolutely would recommend."
