If you’re looking for a unique ocean adventure this summer, you’ll want to head to southern California. Whether you live nearby and want a day trip or you’re a first-time visitor from thousands of miles away, an outing on the Pacific Ocean, such as a San Diego private yacht charter, will undoubtedly be an extraordinary excursion. When you climb aboard and set out on your voyage, you’ll get stunning panoramic views of the Pacific and California coast in all its glory. Southern California offers many beautiful location options for chartering a yacht. Here are just a few of them.
1. Long Beach
From Long Beach, it’s easy to charter a yacht to the Channel Islands. One of the best locations for fun activities in this area is Farnsworth Bank, a spectacular series of underwater mountains on the backside of Catalina Island. You’ll see the sharp pinnacles of the massive underwater mountains surrounded by clear, deep waters and an extensive wealth of marine life. Dive in and take in the view of California purple hydrocoral, as multi-colored life such as moray eels, crabs, shrimp, greenling and electric torpedo rays glide about. There are strong currents here, so even if you’re a skilled diver, you’ll need to wait until the seas are calm to be safe. Whether relaxing on the boat or diving, Farnsworth Bank is a southern California vacation must-do.
2. Redondo Beach
Redondo Beach is a hub for yacht charters, partly because it’s the only beach community in South Bay with its own harbor. Honeymoon Cove is not just for newly married couples; travel here by yacht to view this beautiful, wildlife-filled cove with turquoise water and a stunning cliffscape.
3. San Diego
If you’re an animal lover, you must charter a yacht for a whale-watching adventure. In addition to whales, there’s an excellent chance you’ll also see dolphins and sea lions. Setting sail from San Diego, you’ll observe San Diego’s beautiful skyline as a backdrop. Choose a whale-watching private dinner cruise for a unique and romantic once-in-a-lifetime experience.
4. Newport Beach
From Newport Beach, you can hop on a yacht and travel 22 miles into the Pacific Ocean to Catalina Island. This island has something for everyone. You can spend the day exploring on foot, bike or golf cart. There are countless varieties of activities to enjoy in the perfect climate of this area, such as snorkeling, scuba diving, hiking, golf and tennis.
5. Marina Del Rey
From Marina Del Rey, travel to the Palos Verdes Penninsula to see the Point Vicente lighthouse. From your yacht, you can look up the 130-foot cliff on which this 67-foot tall, majestic lighthouse sits. The lighthouse has been in use since 1926. Its 1,500-watt bulb’s beacon can be seen as far out as 20 miles, flashing every 20 seconds. For the paranormal enthusiasts, people have also claimed to see a woman in a flowing dress haunting the lighthouse since the 1940s.
Are you ready to have an experience of a lifetime aboard a magnificent yacht? Whether you arrange a whale-watching excursion or a private party boat San Diego, your entire family is sure to have fun headed for sun-drenched adventure on a chartered yacht as it sails the Pacific.
