About Los Angeles

Los Angeles or LA is the most populous city in California. Known as the City of Angels, it’s a cultural epicenter of the West Coast of the United States. It sits near the Pacific Ocean and is surrounded by smaller cities and communities that make up the Greater Los Angeles area. There is an endless list of things to see and do in Los Angeles, and no visit to the United States is complete without a stop in LA.

The best time of year to visit Los Angeles is during the shoulder seasons of summer when prices will be more reasonable since kids are in school, and you won’t get trapped in a blistering heat wave. You’ll still have sunshine and warmth so you can enjoy the beach and all the outdoor fun that LA has to offer.

To get to Los Angeles, finding a flight to the massive airport LAX is accessible from any major city, both in the United States and worldwide. It’s one of the busiest airports in the world. You can also arrive by Greyhound bus, or drive if you plan on making a road trip. Be aware that traffic in and around Los Angeles is infamously terrible, so plan on leaving with extra time whenever you try to get anywhere.

    Owner, captain and host were all very nice people. Boat was very well maintained. First time renting a boat and I was unsure of the process or experience. I am glad my first time was with such great & easygoing people. Boat is beautiful and I’d book with them again.

    😎 Cruise In Style On Roomy Sailboat ⛵

    My group absolutely loved Jared. He was kind and very informative and his boat is absolutely gorgeous. We brought 6 people with us which was the perfect amount, not to crowded but we had more than enough room to wonder. He handles with covid 19 with care and maintains his boat to upmost cleanliness as possible. He neatly placed our alcohol in the inside of the boat and had a disposable bag to discard our cans. Wonderful perk is that he has a restroom! Jared is a phenomenal driver! He saved our lives, another boat almost crashed into us due to their negligence but Jared saved the day by skillfully avoiding the situation. Thank you Jared for being the best captain I’ve ever experienced. You and your boat were the highlight of my best friends birthday and will be remembered as the greatest Golden Birthday ever. I will definitely be coming back in the future! Thank you 💕
