Overview

Sail with Capt. Sean and Captain Mark on a Private sailing day charter in the beautiful Channel Islands. Often referred to as the Galapagos of North America the islands are alive with a tremendous amount of sea life including dolphins, sea lions and whales. Our private excursions will allow you to explore these beautiful islands in the luxury of your own 50 foot sailboat with captain and crew. Having grown up in the area, captain Sean will share local knowledge and experience to make your trip truly special. If you prefer sailing in the Los Angeles area, we also have a boat in Marina Del Rey for quick trips to Catalina or Santa Monica Bay. Come join us for an adventure of a lifetime.

Absolutely the real deal. I’ve chartered 20+ boats over the last 15 years and this is the best. Captain Sean is a great guy, works his tail off and has a great boat. He’s patient and laid back but nothing is left to chance. The...More

We took our company out Anacapa for the day. Sean of Channel Islands Charter helped us organize two boats and a great day. The boats were clean, and both captains very easy going. Our whole team had a great time - I highly recommend.

Half day/Full day/Multi-day options. We went out for 3 days (2 overnights) and it was great. Alcohol is allowed although it is BYOB. And you could easily do 6 guests plus the captain and a mate.
