Channel Islands Sailing Adventures

Join us on our Catalina 34 for a live-aboard sail training opportunity with expert instruction and guidance.

We’ll be visiting the Northern Channel Islands including San Miguel, rounding Point Conception to Morro Bay, and we may get out to San Nicholas and San Clemente Islands. Of course we’ll visit Catalina, Santa Barbara Island, and even do some fun and easy coastal cruising between Oceanside and Marina Del Rey.

Every trip includes sail training, exploring, and opportunities for NauticEd certifications and endorsements. Get your Bareboat Charter Master certification, the SLC Mediterranean sailing license, and Captain rank training and assessment. Endorsements available include off shore passage making, anchoring, night sailing, heavy weather, and more.
