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.

    Cruise In Style On Roomy Sailboat - 36' Catalina

    Jared was an amazing captain. We sailed across the channel to Catalina for 2 nights. It was the perfect experience - a combination of sea romance and reality. I wanted to learn as much as I could about sailing and Jared was happy to teach hands on. He's a very nice guy as well. He gave us our space at anchor during the day. Living on a boat can get tight at times. The harbor at Catalina was beautiful and I got plenty of opportunities to swim. It was a great experience. I hope I have the opportunity again.

    Beneteau 40 Cruising Sloop in Marina del Rey with Captain Mark

    Fabulous day touring the Santa Monica Bay with Captain Mark! Five star service - from entertaining conversation, perfect sailing weather and an extra tour around the marina to see the boat slips and marina wildlife. An unexpected treat included being environmentally sensitive and allowing the group to use the net to retrieve some party balloons that had been floating along the bay. We had an excellent day with Captain Mark and would absolutely recommend this trip with a wonderful captain!

    Mark was an amazing Captain. He was very informative and a great communicator from our initial inquiry, to booking, and all through out the actual sail. Weather was gloomy but that did not stop us from having a beautiful and relaxing sail. I highly recommend.

    24' Four Winns V8 Bowrider Rental In Incline Village, Nevada

    Go with Jay! If you are looking to have an epic day on the lake enjoy all Tahoe has to offer you need to experience Big Blue by boat. We’ll rent from Jay again and then again. The boat is in good shape and is the right size to feel comfortable and safe when the wind kicks up. Five star.

    30' Luxury Fast Boat Chaparral, Sun Tanning Bed, Emerald Bay Ocean Charter

    Captain Reed responded quickly and was really easy to get ahold of to answer my many Pre-trip questions. He was friendly, knowledgeable and respectful. I have two children, ages 6 and 8, and he was great with them. I openly admit that I am hard to please, but Captain Reed exceeded all of my expectations. We can’t wait to head out on another adventure with hi !
