    Sailboat Charter in Alameda CA

    We had a wonderful afternoon sailing with Captain Brad. My husband is a sailer so we wondered what it would be like to have someone else at the helm, but Brad was very willing to let my husband take a turn. We had a fun afternoon and I look forward to going out with Captain Brad again soon!

    The sailboat is fast and well equipped; the skipper knows his way around and takes you sailing with the wind blowing from the right direction and with the best views of the San Francisco Bay area. it's the best way to get an idea of a huge touristic region.

    I booked this boat for my wife's 40th birthday as a surprise for her and her friends. When she came back she was smiling ear to ear. She had an epic time and the boat was perfect. Lots of space to sit and enjoy inside, outside and all around. Great photos to from any angle of the boat. The ability to hang out, enjoy the weather, good food was the best! The owner allowed food on board so the girls got to bring what they wanted and also access to the bluetooth speakers on board allowed them to enjoy their favorite tunes while cruising the bay. She said that this was a very memorable experience and will never forget it. Highly recommend this boat and captain!

    Amazing trip with a very experienced skipper. We sailed along SF skyline and views were breathtaking. The boat looks great like brand new.

Boating Guide - Santa Cruz

Santa Cruz Boat Rentals

The Monterey Bay is a desirable boating destination, and there’s no better place to rent a boat than Santa Cruz. The stunning stretch of coastline in this California city invites people from all over to rent a pontoon, powerboat, charter a yacht, or book a boat tour for a fun day of exploring on the waves. Board your boat at the wharf in Santa Cruz and head out on the Pacific. Check out the Santa Cruz Boardwalk, Natural Bridges State Beach, Pleasure Point County Park, or the cliffs of Davenport from your boat rental.

For a truly unique water experience, you can also try stand-up paddleboard yoga in Santa Cruz. It’s a popular activity for locals and tourists, especially in hot spots like Capitola, the Santa Cruz Main Beach, Mitchell’s Cove Beach, and Waddell Beach.

Want to rent a surfboard or try a surfing lesson in Santa Cruz? With at least 11 world-class surf breaks, it is clear that Santa Cruz’s reputation as one of the world’s premier spots for surfing is well-earned. This city and its waves have inspired references in dozens of songs, and many professional surfers have made Santa Cruz their home. Whatever your level of surfing experience (even if you are just starting out) the expansive and diverse coastline of Santa Cruz will provide excellent waves, and there are many top-rate instructors available to teach you.

Miles of scenic coastline and a delightfully moderate climate are just a few of the natural features that have put Santa Cruz on the map. This beach resort community in beautiful central California also goes by the moniker “Surf City,” and offers many other watersports and activities for boaters to enjoy.
