Enjoy the cerulean waters of Catalina via a Private Cruise aboard our classic schooner for up to 6 passengers. Lively is a 1976 Willard Marine custom schooner. She was designed by Hale Field and constructed at Willard Boat Works in Costa Mesa. She has spent most of her life in Newport Harbor, occasionally venturing up or down the coast to cruise or participate in the America's Schooner Cup--which she won in 2016--or across the channel to Catalina Island. She is a dream to sail and flies up to five sails at a time: gaff-rigged main and fore sails, with a gaff topsail, a fisherman topsail, and a jib on a self-tending boom. Her auxiliary propulsion is a 30 horsepower Yanmar inboard engine. Down below she has a dinette table that seats four comfortably, a small galley (kitchen) with an icebox, and a head (restroom).

Our mission is to provide access to the beautiful waters of Newport Harbor and the nearby coasts through Sailing Lessons, Bay Cruises and Ocean Expeditions aboard traditional sailing vessels.
The Lively is a beautiful ship, and captain Andrew and crew are knowledgeable in it's history, use, and I'm all sorts of interesting topics, from history to biology to where to get the best bagels. We had a wonderful, relaxing, time on the water. A delight.
It’s a really great experience. The captain and crew really know there stuff and are very friendly.
Such a great experience with Captain Andrew! Everything we wanted from our first sailboat excursion.
Excellent service. Andrew tailored our trip to our needs. We saw lots of wildlife. Everyone had a wonderful time. Well worth every penny!
