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.

I WOULD GO INTO LENGTHS about how amazing of an experience this was but it would literally be an in depth book. THIS EXCURSION was AMAZING!!! I 15/10 recommend captain Cade, 110% the coolest captain roaming the sea!!!! thanks for an amazing time and I will most def
My husband had a wonderful birthday on the boat, enjoying the scenery in the harbor and speed on the ocean. Nassar is a pro at what he does: clear, pleasant communicator with a nice sense of humor. And very sweet to my dog too. We will remain in touch for our next ride:)
All around spectacular cruise! With 6 of our friends, I surprised my boyfriend for his birthday and it was an absolute blast. Communication with Captain Mark over pre-trip info and boat details was a breeze. His enthusiasm and warm conversation was an added bonus to the experience. The sailboat was beautiful, clean, and incredibly cozy inside. We sailed for 2 hours and caught an amazing sunset, HIGHLY recommend that time to sail. Captain Mark is amazing. Can't wait to sail again!
We had an amazing experience sailing with Mark. From the get go Mark was quick to communicate with me and let me know the best times to set sail so that we could experience a sunset cruise. He sent me a detailed email before we set sail with recommends of what to bring and what to expect and an itinerary of the direction in which we would sail. We took the trip with my family of 4, two adults and two kids and felt the boat was very safe and well equipped. It was nice to also have a bathroom on board! The weather was beautiful and we had a perfect sunset! Mark also took us to see sealions in addition to the pelicans and dolphins that we saw in the distance. It was a fabulous experience and I would totally recommend sailing with Mark and his beautiful ship!
I had an wonderful afternoon celebrating my birthday with my family! Eddie was an awesome captain and even let my teen son drive the boat for a bit. We cruised north out of the Marina harbor and anchored in Paradise Cove to enjoy the spectacular sunset! Can’t wait for our next boating adventure with this crew!
I rented my boat from him in October of 2020 for my birthday trip to Cali. It was the best experience ever !!! He was very professional and I loved the captain ! Everything was perfect and worth my money ! When I go back to Cali I an def renting this boat again ! Thank you so much !!
