Our brand new 2022 Catalina 385 sailboat BarcoIris is on the island and ready to go! Please call or text Raphael at (310) 569-9843 to book your sailing adventure today!

Selecting Your Trip

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

Adventure Cruises let you book individual spaces on the boat. It takes a booking of 2 or more people to start an Adventure Cruise trip; after that, the system allows single bookings.

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

About Catalina Adventure Sailing

We offer both Adventure Cruises and Private format sailboat excursions for all ages, little ones all the way to old Salts!

When you cruise with us you get to experience the tranquility of having the engine off and the sails up. We’ve found that the peacefulness of sailing attracts more wildlife. We’ve had pods of dolphins swim with us for miles, it’s a thrilling sight to see.

We know the local waters, and we do our best to make you feel welcome and comfortable while aboard.

Our vessel BarcoIris is always clean and ready to go, providing unforgettable good times for families, couples, and groups.

Check out our 5 star reviews on TripAdvisor or Yelp and make your reservation today. We limit the number of guests to 6 plus crew on all excursions, so space fills up quickly.

If you don’t see what you’re looking for here, and want a custom quote on a different itinerary, just drop us a line on our contact page. Someone will get back to you usually within one business day.


"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."
