    15 Passenger X Large Duffy Style with Captain in Huntington Beach, CA

    We had a wonderful experience on this boat. It made my moms birthday very special. We felt the hosts and the captains are very kind and accommodating and went out of their way to make sure we had a nice time. We recommend captain Doug and Donna (and our captain Jimmy) very highly!

    Fantastic day on the water! This was everything we asked for.. amazing crew, great hospitality, great boat. We have been on a few charters and none have matched this level of quality. A HUGE thank you to Tomas and Kyle. They took amazing care of us and since it started raining the cabin was a great refuge until it cleared up. There’s no other way to rent a boat then this charter, thank you all so much!

    I wish I could give Daniel more than 5 stars! He responded to my messages quickly and answered all of my questions. I booked with Daniel to surprise my husband for his birthday. The trip was better than I could have imagined. Our friends are still talking about it. Daniel took us everywhere we wanted to go. It was truly an unforgettable experience. I highly recommend booking with Daniel, and I will definitely be booking more trips in the future!

Boating Guide - Santa Catalina Island

Catalina Island Boat Rentals & Yacht Charters

Catalina Island is a must-see gem off the coast of Southern California, 30 miles away from Long Beach. You can reach the island on the express ferry, which takes about an hour and departs daily from Long Beach, arriving in Avalon. Once you get to Catalina, the options for outdoor activities are endless. It’s a haven for boating enthusiasts, scuba divers looking to explore the magical kelp forests, and families looking to see dolphins, whales, sea lions, and all types of seabirds.

A private yacht charter with a USCG-certified captain on Catalina Island will give you an insider look at highlights of the island, including the developed parts of Avalon City and Two Harbors Village. Here you can explore the shops and restaurants on the island. So much of Catalina Island is inaccessible to people, as it's preserved nature, but you can see the natural beauty of the island the best from a boat. Overnight charters are available if you’re looking to stay on Catalina for multiple days, and want the experience of sleeping on board a boat, while also getting a full view of all angles of the island.

If you’re looking to go snorkeling, paddleboarding, kayaking, scuba diving, or just relax on a boat with a cocktail, you can find it with a Catalina Island boat charter. Cooling off with a swim is a must during the hot summer months. Another popular adventure for visitors to Catalina Island is a fishing charter. Catch Seabass, yellowtail, and halibut on your deep-sea fishing adventure in the Pacific. All equipment can be included in the price when you book a boat rental or charter, so let your captain or owner know what you’re hoping to do during your visit to Catalina Island.
