California

Contrasted coast line

This 1.400 km coastline offers a wide variety of landscapes from the soft sandy tropical beaches of San Diego to the rugged northern coasts.
In the southern part of the state, warm Pacific waters and the famous California surf attract many tourists to its palm shaded beaches. As you go further north, the coastline becomes more scenic, but the waters are cooler and sandy beaches are scarcer. In northern California, hiking along rocky cliffs and visiting secluded beaches to see seals, sea otters or whales are more popular than swimming

Cruising grounds

Many world cruises begin their grand itineraries from Los Angeles and San Francisco. Those cruises are heading for Baja California, the Mexican Riviera, Alaska and Hawaii.

California is said to be one of the best places in the world to enjoy sailing. There are sailing clubs and charters from Oregon to Mexico, and people are enjoying the wind and the weather from one end of the state to the other. Of all the places in the West to take up sailing, however, San Francisco is arguably the best.
Other places of interest to the yachting community are Northern California, Los Angeles, San Diego Bay Area, the Sacramento Delta, Southern California and inland, Lake Tahoe.

Yacht Charter

There are yacht charters available from the northern to the Southern of California. We can arrange for a charter of a fully-crewed yacht for a week-long sail along the coast, arrange for a bareboat charter or a day charter. The yachting community is very important, providing all facilities in plenty marinas and harbours, allowing you to enjoy the rich nature of the Pacfic coast inthe best possible conditions. Day charters can range from a half-day on San Francisco Bay to a full-day trip from Marina Del Rey to the Channel Islands or Catalina.
