About Channel Islands Charter - Tours
Sail with Capt. Sean and Captain Mark on a Private sailing day charter in the beautiful Channel Islands. Often referred to as the Galapagos of North America the islands are alive with a tremendous amount of sea life including dolphins, sea lions and whales. Our private excursions will allow you to explore these beautiful islands in the luxury of your own 50 foot sailboat with captain and crew. Having grown up in the area, captain Sean will share local knowledge and experience to make your trip truly special. If you prefer sailing in the Los Angeles area, we also have a boat in Marina Del Rey for quick trips to Catalina or Santa Monica Bay. Come join us for an adventure of a lifetime.

I booked a half day sailing trip to Anacapa Island for our Family of six. We sailed on the "The Good Wife" which is a well maintained and outfitted 49' Jeanneau Sail boat . Our half day charter left from Channel Islands Harbor at 1 PM for a quick trip to Anacapa Island with Captain Sean returning around 5 PM. We had a wonderful time and will hopefully be booking a longer all day trip to allow us more time to anchor and kayak in the future as this was a big hit with the family. Sean is a skilled sailor with a engaging personality and he has a lot of local knowledge that he was able to share with us. The boat was provided a fast, safe and smooth sail out and back. This is the probably the perfect sized sailboat to consider for for a group of 4-6 that want to see or visit the Channel Islands.

Thoroughly enjoyed a 3 days trip with Captain Sean to Anacapa and Santa Cruz Islands. Kayaked, snorkeled, and explored such a beautiful coastline with amazing kelp forests. Some folks clearly love what they do and are just so enjoyable to be around with great energy and kindness - Captain Sean is one of them! Highly recommended.
