活動內容

We will begin the day by loading guests and gear aboard Mayflower. We may board right at the dock or we may take one of our smaller boats out to her mooring on the other side of Lido Island.

Once everyone has picked out bunks and stowed their gear we will cruise through the harbor to head out to sea--visiting sea lions along the way--and set sail across the San Pedro Channel.

In usual wind conditions, we will sail from Newport towards Long Beach/San Pedro for several hours before tacking and heading towards the island. This may vary according to the wind and sea. Snacks and sandwiches will be served aboard during the sail.

Feel free to simply kick back and enjoy the sailing experience. Guests are also welcome to take the helm and/or try their hand at hoisting & adjusting sails. No prior experience needed! Captain Andrew is a tenured sailing instructor, always happy to share his knowledge and skills.

Once the crew has safely moored us at Two Harbors, we will collectively decide whether to dine aboard or go ashore to grill up dinner. After dinner we may play games, check out the island's entertainment, or simply turn in for the night.

Other things to note:
Guests should be confidant moving up and down a short boarding ladder.
The day-long voyage and possible lumpiness of the water makes seasickness a possibility--even for those who don't usually get seasick.

Day 2
After a hot breakfast aboard Mayflower, we will gear up for snorkeling and swimming in Catalina's cerulean waters, where you'll have the opportunity to swim with Garibaldi, Opaleye, many species of sea bass, sea lions, seals, leopard sharks, sea stars, lobster and crabs! (The shoreline faces East, so this is a great time to enjoy the water). After the morning's water activities, we will go ashore for showers and lunch (at each passenger's discretion), taking our time to relax at the island cafe and explore the tiny town, or sunbathe on the sunny shoreline.

Having regained our energy, we will then gear up to hike across the narrowest point of the island to the West-facing coastline, where we'll enjoy a grilled dinner with sunset views. After dinner we will hike back to the East side of the island, where we'll once again have the option to play games, check out the island's entertainment, or simply turn in for the night.

Other things to note:
Bring your own snorkeling gear or let us know in advance if you would like to purchase some. We are not currently lending equipment due to Covid-19

Lunch is not provided on Day 2, but is available for purchase in Two Harbors.

The island showers cost $2 per 3 minutes 20 seconds and only take quarters (there is an atm and two coin changers on the island).

Day 3
After a simple breakfast aboard, we will use the provided inflatable kayaks to explore the cliffs along the shoreline of Catalina before preparing for our journey back to the mainland around midday.

Lunch and snacks will be provided for the return voyage.

We will arrive back to Newport Harbor around sunset and sail back to our marina to dock Mayflower for passengers to disembark.

Other things to note
Guests will want to be sure to take seasickness medication again an hour before getting underway.

Andrew:
Sailing is my passion, my life and my career! I caught the sailing bug at the age of eleven and have been at it ever since! I grew up in the Sea Scouts program, raced for my High School's Sailing Team all four years of school, and taught sailing (even directed the sailing program) at Newport Sea Base for ten years before completing my Captain's License and starting my own sailing excursion business. I love being on the water and sharing that experience with others!

Missy:
I spent the last 18 years working in restaurants and coffee shops, but sailing captured my heart and now I can't give it up! On this adventure, I get to share both passions with you, as we take you on a nautical and culinary adventure across the San Pedro Channel!

I recommend you ask a lot of questions before taking this 3 day sailing trip. Do you really know what being on a sailboat is like? Are you OK with cramped quarters in exchange for beautiful ocean, sky, and of course Catalina island? If so, then by all means get on board! Andrew is an experienced sailor and a very nice person. We (my 3 sisters and I) liked him a lot and at times I felt very bad for him as he struggled with the battery, generator, and other issues with the boat that increased our discomfort. We think they spent FAR too long time at 2 Harbors. We took 2 hikes which were great but the kayaking and snorkeling were not so fun and there was no reason to be there for 3 days. One day would have been plenty. Why not visit Avalon??? Hopefully the boat will be fixed for the next group, but I encourage you to ask about electric, running water, and how many will be on board. We had 8 including crew and it was tight. There is really nowhere comfortable to sit for the length of time it takes this boat to get to Catalina (8+ hours there due to bad wind situation, 5-6 hours back). We mostly didn't have power for lights below deck, charging phones, or powering the electric pump for the bathroom sink water. At the end of the day we made the best of the situation. It wasn't at all what we were expecting but Catalina is beautiful. It was fun steering the boat and learning about sailing. Captain Andrew is extremely knowledgeable and Missy is a great cook. Good luck to them. I have a feeling they will improve this excursion moving forward.

Best Airbnb Experience - Exceptional Hosts & Thrilling Trip at Sea! Spectacular Signature SoCal Living Sailing Adventure - On Board Beautiful Unique Vintage Vessel. Wonderful Welcoming Captain Andrew and Missy Greeted us Daily with Enthusiastic Smiles. Delightful Company - Demonstrated Trustworthy Expert Experience as True Accomplished Professionals: Calm, Confident, Thoughtful and Considerate, Incredibly Attentive to Details, as well as Interesting and Engaging with Impressive Intricate Knowledge. Great Communication & Reliable Response - Appreciated that the confirmation email and post Provided Well Organized and Specific Trip Details with Clear Instructions about parking over the weekend. Captain Andrew and Missy are Charismatic - Seamlessly Personable and Friendly - relating well to all of us, from our Senior Granny, (enjoying retirement in her 60's) to our 15 year old with typical teenage angst (Captain Andrew really Connected to him with Absolute Patience, soon Encouraging him to "Take the Helm" often - so very Kind). Our Beds were Very Comfortable - With Incredible Ocean Views - and each of us Rested Well, feeling very Relaxed throughout the journey. Excellent Meals and Snacks - Very Delicious - each Healthy and Completely Balanced for the island water activities: kayak, snorkel, swimming, hike and sail travel. We Laughed hard learning new board games (Catan now our Family Favorite) and very Quickly felt Comfortable Lounging Together on Deck, Enjoying Spectacular Sunsets and the Gentle Rhythm of the Seas - Very Peaceful. Includes Fantastic Special Treat - Captain Andrew and Missy sharing special stories and singing serene songs. The sail to and then back from Catalina Island was an Exhilarating Adventure - still feel the Sensation of Sea Spray on Deck and Waves Lapping the Sides of the Boat. We Wholeheartedly Thank Captain Andrew and Missy for making our Weekend Trip So Fun & Amazing. 100% - Highly Recommend and Eager to Invite Friends To Join Us to Sail with Captain Andrew Again :)
