About California

They do not say “West Coast, Best Coast” for nothing. From the shores of the Pacific Ocean to the Great Salt Lake and the bed of the Colorado River, the West Coast of the United States has a lot to offer in the way of water. The Oregon Trail and Gold Rush of 1850 may have populated the region, but today the abundance of natural wonders and water resources have tourists and locals alike praising the land. California’s most popular destinations are often coastal, such as San Francisco, San Diego, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, and Monterey.

California Boat Hire

California— the nationally renowned “Golden State”— is located on the West Coast of the United States. This state is beloved by many travelers and residents because of its beautiful coastline along the Pacific Ocean, which makes it the perfect place to enjoy boating and other ocean activities.

Northern California conjures images of towering redwood forests and breathtaking stretches of coastline in the minds of many, but it is also one of the world’s premier fishing destinations. Its numerous rivers, lakes, and bays provide plenty of ripe territory for fishermen to explore. If you’re not into fishing, there are plenty of options for you to explore the Northern coastline of California too. Sailing, boating, and watersports all have their place on the water in California and beyond, and there are cities that can help you make the best choice on your next boating trip. Try visiting San Francisco, Sacramento, Lake Tahoe, Redding, and Emeryville.

Southern California is one of the most desired vacation destinations in the world. In addition to the appeal of multiple amusement parks, vibrant culture, and the legendary town of Hollywood, the beautiful Pacific Ocean is one of the primary reasons Southern California tops the lists of travelers from all over the globe. Boating is the best way to experience the stunning Pacific coastline, and it’s no surprise that Los Angeles, Orange County, and San Diego County are appealing to boaters and tourists alike.

    Beneteau 40 Cruising Sloop in Marina del Rey with Captain Mark

    Had an amazing first time sailing experience with Captain Mark. Mark was professional, friendly, and overall great! I booked a sail trip mid June from 12 pm to 2 pm. The timing and weather were perfect. I especially appreciated how Mark was prepared in having crackers and motion sickness oil for when I got seasick. He saved me from an embarrassing moment. I highly recommend Captain Mark anytime for time your sailing trips.

    52' ft Cruiser Yacht for 6 Guests in Newport Beach, California

    A three day trip to Catalina Island aboard the Quiet Place with Jessie and Mike is a great way to get back into travel after covid restricted existence. Actually -perfect anytime you want a mini break with this excellent team of experienced boaters and travel guides. The boat is very comfortable for four - sleeping aboard or could work as well for a family of six. Catalina looks spiffed up after being mostly closed for covid and is definitely ready for visitors. We couldn't recommend this crew more highly.

    Amazing experience! Rick is a well seasoned captain. He was a great communicator from inquiry to day of updates and safety. We felt lsafe and comfortable on his beautiful boat. He knew of all the good spots, great conversation and laid back vibez . When things got choppy in the SF bay he was calm and humorous! I can’t wait to book another trip on the Gentle Storm II.

    Luxury 33’ Double Decker Pontoon Boat in Mission Bay

    We had a blast! The boat was so much fun especially jumping off the top deck. We booked a 4 hour trip which was perfect to cruise, swim a bit then cruise back to the dock. Everyone had a great time and our captain was awesome. Highly recommend!
