About Old Plank Adventures
Old Plank is a boutique luxury sailing charter and aquatic company with gourmet 5 star cuisine. Founded by Captain and Chef Matthew Mancini and supported by a crew of lifelong watermen, we live by the currents, plan by the tides, and follow the sun. We share a deep passion for quality food and the belief that everyone deserves the opportunity to experience the profound peace that comes from an alignment with the rhythms of the ocean. We’ve been fortunate enough to have been immersed in the ocean and gourmet foods our entire lives and derive great joy from sharing these experiences. WHAT DO WE DO? We take our guests out into a safe sailing environment on the Santa Monica Bay or beyond, where they have the opportunity to experience first-hand the joy of sailing, the rhythm of the ocean and unique pairings of gourmet foods and wines in the sweet briny sea air. We catch sunrises, bake in the mid-day sunshine and relax as the sunsets and the moon rises under starry skies. We play with s

We had a lovely morning cruise with Captain Mancini. He was engaging, funny explained a lot about sailing, and the hors d'oeuvres were delicious. A refreshing escape and a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend.

My group of girlfriends can not say enough about our experience here. Not only was Matthew an amazing captain who made sure we had help if we needed it getting back and forth to the helm, but also brought us refills on our white claws when they were low! The sunset was stunning, and the three hours flew by. My favorite part was hanging our feet off the end and dipping our toes in the water. Worth every penny. Thank you Matthew for everything and best of wishes to you in your future endeavors. -Wendy

I was looking for something different to do in LA to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We always wanted to go sailing and had such a wonderful experience with Matt. We loved it so much we hope to do it again sometime soon with a few more friends.I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to get away from the everyday LA and relax for a few hours .

Out of the ordinary memorable experience with Captain Mancini! We had the seadoo experience and got to see hundreds of dolphins around us. Unbeatable experience in LA. Captain Mancini was a great guide and true gentleman giving us good tips for the rest of our trip.

Looking for something to do our last day of Vacation in Marina del Rey and just lucked upon Old Plank Adventures. Booked a 2 hr excursion and the owner contacted me immediately to let me know that time slot was taken and suggested that we come for a sunset cruise and catered it for a time that was convenient for us. Matt is a wonderful host, Captain and Chef. It was the best thing we had experienced our whole vacation. I felt like I had know Matt for years and that we we old friends catching up on lost time. My wife and I want to go back to California now to just hang out with him. I would like to mention that he opened a bottle of delicious wine and served some very tasty hors d’oeuvres for our perfect sailing excursion. Thanks Matt you’re the best. We will be back someday.
