Now offering overnight cruises to Catalina Island starting at $2000 per trip! All multiple-day sailing cruises include Bed & Breakfast aboard Mayflower for up to 6 passengers, as well as a leisurely crossing to the island and back to the mainland (on separate days) aboard this traditional wooden tall ship. Each additional day (+ night aboard) after the first two is $500/day. Get a taste of life on the High Seas sailing from Newport Harbor to the cerulean waters at Catalina Island aboard a small tall ship! Enjoy the crossing from Mayflower's spacious deck, with her captain and crew acting as your private guides. You can feel free to sit back and enjoy the sail or learn about traditional sailing and the island's history from the captain and crew. What To Expect Onboard: Mayflower is a 1960 Square-Topsail Ketch designed by Hugh Angelman and built by the American Marine shipyard almost entirely out of teak, in a design that harkens back to the 1700s. She flies up to seven sails at a time inducing the gaff main and mizzen, stay sail, jib, flying jib, square topsail, and course. Any salty old mariner will surely have a smile on their face as they take the helm either on her aft deck or inside the pilot house if the weather is not very warm. On deck there is plenty of room for lounging and taking in the beautiful coastal views! Below decks she is appointed with a Great Cabin at the stern, with two single bunks that are convertible to doubles, and can be divided into two more private sleeping areas with a bulkhead in between. Forward of the midships pilot house is the main cabin, which houses the galley and dinette as well as two additional single bunks. Mayflower is the perfect vessel for adventuring over to Catalina Island for the weekend, or more adventurous jaunts circumnavigating Catalina or voyaging to the Channel Islands and beyond!
