47'Luxury Italian Racer Cruiser sailing yacht for your personal and intimate pleasure for sailing our beautiful Monterey Bay Sanctuary. Bring all your own goodies and party with Bella on the Bay Monterey. All amenity's you will need on board. Only 6 guests per cruise for our groups so its spacious and intimate. Or private Charters for up to 6 max. Please! its just me and my boat so if I don't answer right away leave me a message and I will return the call as soon as I am able. Thanks Your Captain Christian...;)

      My Whale watch trip is 4 hours and goes from 10am til 2pm its my half day special for 650.00 for up to 6 total guests. You bring your own lunch and goodies for the trip, beer and wine is OK too. Its private only so it would just be you guys . We will see whales almost for sure on my half day special and plenty of time to enjoy them . The seas and wind is usually calm in the morning and will pick up typically around 12 or so for a great sail coming home.

      My 2 hour group sales are 85.00 per person and go from 2 to 4 or 4 to 6. You also can bring your own beer and wine and snacks if you wish. On the 2 hour sails we see whales and dolphins all the time but there are definitely no guarantees to see everything every time because they need to be in the area we are sailing and close enough to get to them in the one hour out that we sail.

      We are blessed to have some whales here year round and plenty of Dolphins come through all year too.

      My private sails are 175.00 an hour with a 2 hour minimum for up to 6 total guest and we could go any time that I am not already scheduled. Again you can bring your own goodies aboard .On the 2 hour sails we see whales and dolphins all the time but there are definitely no guarantees to see everything every time because they need to be in the area we are sailing and close enough to get to them in the one hour out that we sail.

      Hope to see ya here for something .

Thanks You

Your Captain Christian....:)

PS The evening sail is rare to see whales..

Okay, I didn't see the whale come out of the water but my better half swears that he did. We did have seals come close to the boat and check us out. It's worth a visit. Rent a kayak or sail boat, get out on the water.

Captain Christian makes your trip fun and educational. You can't really see the Monterey Bay unless you are out on the water. I give Captain Christian a call whenever I have family or friends visiting. He's taken my guests who range in age from 22 to 87 and they've all been thrilled with the experience.

Christian was a very fun and gracious captain. We had a blast sailing with him in Monterey Bay and would not hesitate to sail with him again if we come to Monterey in the future. Definitely recommend!!!

OMG, we have just had the most fantastic day out on the water with Capt Christian and all of the wildlife of Monterey Bay. We saw at least thirty humpback whales, over two hundred Dolphins, countless sea lions, sea otters, etc. We did a four hour charter, and you need this time to get out to where the sea life... More

We stayed a week at Spanish Bay, played Pebble, Spy and the such however the highlight was the afternoon we spent on the Bella on the Bay sailing excursion. The sailing was great only exceeded by the service and personality of the Captain Christian. One Word, Fabulous

Christian was awesome! We had some crazy winds coming from a hurricane in Baja and had quite the adventure! It was exhilarating, scenic and such a fun adventure. I highly recommend this trip. Christian is amazing!

Amazing. Words will not do this justice. This was the most amazing experience ever. Ever. We felt alive! The most beautiful water and weather. An amazing beautiful Italian sail boat.

My wife was planning our trip to Cali a couple of months back, and asked me about staying on a boat one night in Monterey. I jumped at the chance to experience the night on the water. After confirming our stay, she asked if I had any interest in taking a cruise on this same boat with its captain, to... More

we were staying in half moon bay, and it wasn't whale watching season down there. trip advisor explained how wonderful Bella Monterey Bay was, so we drove about 2 hours down and had a whale watching tour with Captain Christian. My teen girls loved the whale watching. Having a private tour is really the best so you can be flexible.... More
