We have been operating in Marina Del Rey for 15 years. It all started when a teacher decided to purchase a boat. Through a love of marine life and sharing this experience with families, Capt Chris has developed the Dolphin Cruise into one of a kind experience for those visiting Los Angeles. Invite a special person for a romantic cruise, or all your friends for a party that will be long remembered. How about a sunny afternoon of drifting and swimming off the coast of Malibu? Or cocktails while watching a spectacular sunset over Catalina Island? Maybe champagne, stars, moonlight and the lights of Santa Monica sparkling in the water? Whether you are arranging a corporate getaway, a romantic interlude, or a party or family reunion, you choose the time and the vibe, and leave the rest up to us! Due to Los Angeles County regulations on Marina Del Rey’s Dock 55, we are not able to book cruises without 24 hours notice, and there are no single ticket cruise options allowed. Our pricing options for 6 person charters are: $600 for a two hour cruise $750 for a three hour dolphin cruise $200 for each additional hour Payment in full is required at the time of booking. THERE ARE NO REFUNDS UNLESS THE BOAT IS INOPERABLE OR THERE IS A CONFIRMED WEATHER ADVISORY FROM NOAA. (We reserve the right to cancel a charter if we feel necessary with a full refund) If you are looking for a trip with up to 12 passengers, we also can help you arrange a bareboat cruise which runs $300/hour plus processing fee. We can help arrange you with one of the captains who is comfortable with our boat, or you are welcome to schedule a sea trial if you have a USCG license and are open to taking a sea trial beforehand. Send us a request to see if we are available on your preferred date. If you have any questions, we can answer those through GetMyBoat’s messaging platform before you pay.
We love to spend time on the water and we are excited to be listed with GetMyBoat making boats more accessible to everyone that wants to get out on the water. We look forward to showing you the local area by water and doing everything we can to provide an amazing boating experience. If you are visiting for fun or simply looking for a relaxing time locally and want to get out and enjoy all the amazing waters this place has to offer.
