The girls and I had an amazing time celebrating a birthday with Calico Yacht Charter!! Thank you Captain Colin for being so accommodating and hospitable during the boat trip.We didn’t get to see the sunset because the weather decided to give us fog instead, but the scenery was perfect to start off spooky season.Onboard they provide you with Bluetooth speakers, blankets, cushions, glassware, soft drinks, plates, utensils, ice and just about anything you need to have an amazing yacht charter experience. Highly recommend, you won’t regret it 🙂

Unforgettable day trip to Emerald Bay.This experience was extraordinary, and it wouldn’t have been possible without the incredible team on board, Captain Colin and Sarah. From start to finish, it was an unforgettable journey.From the moment we boarded the (upgraded :)) yacht, our little group of 6 enjoyed every single moment. The cruise, the paddleboard, the floaties, Emerald Bay on a thursday with almost no one around, the perfect weather.The setting at Emerald Bay was nothing short of breathtaking.And we lost count of how many dolphins we encoutered up close.Captain Colin and Sarah were the heart and soul of this remarkable experience. Their expertise and dedication to ensuring our day was perfect were evident from the moment we set sail. Captain Colin’s knowledge of the local waters, as well as his impeccable piloting skills, made us feel safe and allowed us to enjoy every moment without a care in the world. Sarah, with her warm and friendly demeanor, provided impeccable service throughout the day, attending to our every need with a smile. Her attention to detail and commitment to making our day special did not go unnoticed.We did multiple boat trips in the past from Marina Del Rey, multiple ones more expensive and supposedly more luxurious than this one, this one was the most enjoyable we’ve ever experienced.Thank you again to Captain Colin and Sarah who exceeded our expectations over and over again.

Overnight stay in Catalina with a sunset proposal, couldn’t have gone any better. I would give Colin and Sarah more than 5 stars if I could. They went above and beyond in every way. Colin found a great place in Emerald Bay with crystal clear waters for us to hang out at, helped me set up the perfect proposal at sunset with roses, made sure our drinks were filled, snacks were always available like assorted cheese boards and fresh cut fruits, and you’ll see Sarah is an amazing. Coffee and Breakfast in the morning was delicious. I had French Toast and my fiancé had Eggs Benedict. They made sure the rafts and paddle boards we ready at all times. The water was warm and clear. I highly recommend you take at 1 night/2 days to enjoy the entire experience. Thanks Colin and Sarah for making the proposal special and this trip one of our best experiences we’ve ever had!

We had such an amazing time. The boat was clean and well decorated. They even went the extra mile to put up a happy birthday sign and took drone pictures of us. The Marina Del Rey was also stunning, the view was great and felt peaceful. Great experience!

This was everything! Danny the captain was amazing. He took the time out to take pics for us and was just an overall cool person. The whole experience was detailed and smooth sailing from beginning to end. I will definitely book again! I was also able to have a charcuterie board ordered and waiting for us to nibble on during the ride it was great!

Our group went on the 50ft’ yacht for a birthday party and it was perfect! Sarah and Danny were outstanding, so kind and personable, and made us feel safe the entire time. We chartered for 3 hours and were able to boat out to Santa Monica/Palisades area and stop to swim for an hour with time to get back. We got great pictures and most importantly had so much fun. After researching a ton of options for this party I can confidently say I would choose Calico again every time!

We had an absolute blast out on the boat. Colin was our captain and he was super helpful with everything from finding the boat to finding a swim spot. He even found us some dolphins to watch. Our group had the best boating experience yet! We will be back.

What a great boating night with Daniel and Sarah! We had the most amazing experience for Fourth of July in Marina del Rey. Daniel expertly got us as close as is possible to the barge with the fireworks and navigated safely around the hundreds of boats. We will charter with Calico again ANY day. Thank you guys, that was super special!

We spent our 10th anniversary taking the boat to Catalina and it was incredible! Collin and Sarah created the best experience for us and their hospitality was off the charts! Sarah anticipated our every need and Collin kept managing to find amazing pods of dolphins along the way – it was a truly magical and special experience with such lovely people! If I could give 10 stars I would!

We enjoyed a wonderful day on Calico with Colin. I asked my girlfriend to marry me on the boat and we have enjoyed almost 4 weeks in the USA since. I must say, that boat trip for obvious reasons was a highlight and i highly recommend Colin and team for that special experience.

My family and I had a beautiful afternoon on the sea with Captain Colin and Sarah. They were professional and friendly. They were really helpful getting my kiddos settled and comfortable on the boat. The boat is in really good condition. The music was easy to connect to and made our outing that much more enjoyable. It had everything we needed for a wonderful sunset cruise. We even had some dolphin and seal sightings. We all agree we will book with them again. Thank you for a memorable day!

I booked Calico for a surprise proposal and it was the best day of our lives! Captain Colin and Sarah made sure that everything was special and coordinated the hidden photographer to capture the perfect moments throughout the cruise. Service was impeccable, and they were such fun and lovely people to spend our evening with. I can’t recommend Calico enough for any occasion. Looking forward to bringing family and friends with us next time!

It was by far the best experience we have had. The cruise and team made the experience very, very memorable. They did “everything” right to include making sure we were in place for the sun to set for my marriage proposal. I would highly recommend Calico Yacht Charter. We plan to use them for future events to include family event. Colin and crew, to include the photographer, my fiancée and I can not thank you enough. The Champaign and Red Roses were splendid. I was a bit nervous and you all helped to put me at ease. Thanks is not enough, but thank you so very much. See you soon….March 2022 – Milt & Stephanie from Washington DC

I booked a charter with Calico for a special life milestone celebration . My expectations were exceeded by miles. They even allowed me to bring my little dog aboard which was also part of my requirements. All of my friends were equally thrilled with the sunset cruise. The communication and service is top notch. I would love to go again in the future.

Just had the best time on this charter. This was my first time on a yacht and it was so pleasant. I had a small gathering for my birthday and the experience was even better than I could imagine. I did a three hour charter and my group and I had so much fun that we wished we booked it for longer. This is the only place I would recommend if you are searching for a luxury activity to do in LA. Best service and price available. Can’t wait for our next time.

This was an amazing trip we took for my parents 25th wedding anniversary. Collin and Sarah were phenomenal, and they exceeded all expectations. They consistently went above and beyond to make this trip super fun for the whole family (we all range from ages 10-50). If you ever get the chance to sail with them, you better take it! Best crew ever!!

We wanted to do something special for my Mom’s 57th Birthday and we couldn’t have asked for anything better. From the reservation process with Colin, to the Absolutely Lovely Outsider Yacht, to the Marvelous service that we received from Captain Johnny and crew member Alex, to the many schools of dolphins we saw, and the Beautiful day out in the waters. On behalf of my family, we thank you All Infinitely and Highly recommend to book your trip with these Amazing people.
