What you'll do

COVID-19 UPDATE: When we begin running this experience again, I will be changing certain parts of the experience until we are free of the pandemic. First, the boat will be completely disinfected after each trip. Next, we will limit groups to four people, down from six. We will not be serving drinks, but feel free to bring drinks and snacks. My son and I will be wearing N95 masks the entire trip. We expect guests to wear masks unless they are all part of the same group. If you move farther than six feet from the rest of the group, you can, of course, remove your mask.

We'll prep and sail my 40' Hunter sailboat out of Marina Del Rey and up the coast toward Santa Monica Pier. We'll pass the famous Muscle Beach, the Santa Monica Mountains rising from the Pacific in front, and Catalina Island hovering on the horizon behind you. The trip will last around 2 1/2 hours.

If you've never sailed or are a seasoned mariner who just wants to escape hectic LA for peace and quiet, this experience is for you. There is nothing like watching the sunset from the cockpit of a boat -- you are literally surrounded by light, swimming in oranges and reds.
Other things to note
If you are sensitive to motion, look into over-the-counter remedies before you board.
Also please wear white or neutral-colored soled shoes. Black soles scuff the white decks. Thanks!

I've been sailing since I was a kid with my dad. I taught sailing as a counselor at a camp in Maine. I spent six months on a King Crab fishing boat in the Bering Sea. Since then, I've raced my dad's 27' trimaran on Penobscot Bay in Maine. I've owned this sailboat for over two years. I sailed it down from San Francisco during active March weather and often sail it to Catalina and Santa Cruz Island. Finally, I recently got my Coast Guard OUPV Captain's license.

Great experience sailing on the pacific ocean. Highlight of the tour was when we started noticing dolphins jumping under and around the boat. Overall, a great value for money.

Had a great time on this sunset sail! George was a great host and captain. We departed promptly and on time. It was an absolutely wonderful sail and experience. The Santa Monica shoreline was a great backdrop too. Watching the sunset from a sailboat is a must!

This was a pretty and relaxing sunset sail. The boat was large and George took us out peacefully to Santa Monica and back around to Marina Del Ray amidst the sunset. We even saw a few dolphins!

I took my girlfriend on this as a gift and we had an amazing experience, better than expected. George and his son were so nice. We were just trying to do something different during covid and this was the perfect getaway from our daily routine. We got to sit at the nose of the boat the whole time and even wished even wished we hung out with George more because he was so cool. We’ve already recommended this to our friends and would to anyone looking for an experience like this. 11/10.
