Charter Ideas
Sunset Cruises

Sunset is a wonderful time to enjoy out on the water. The late afternoon is when a lot of the marine life in the harbor is most active! Seals, sea lions, and various species of birds are easy to spot. Enjoy drinks and hors d'ouevres, or even dinner aboard against a backdrop of the setting sun on the Pacific Ocean.

To book a sunset cruise, simply choose how many hours you'd like to rent the yacht, then choose a time near to the sunset of that day. For example, in the winter, book a charter beginning between 4:00pm - 5:00pm. In the summer, the sun sets later, so book a charter beginning between 6:00pm - 7:00pm.

Birthdays and Celebrations

Celebrate your birthday on Calico! We encourage you to bring any decorations you like! Turn up the music and enjoy our crisp sound system integrated throughout the yacht. Make photos and memories against a backdrop of Marina del Rey harbor. Rent the yacht for longer to cruise to the Santa Monica Pier or Malibu.

Great for engagements, graduations, or any other celebration. Bring your preferred food and/or drinks to fit the occasion and your style. At booking there is space to let us know about any special occasions! We can help you get things onboard in advance if you require.

Marriage Proposals

There is no better way to propose than on a yacht. Pop the question with champagne, roses and that perfect song. Option to have a hidden photographer onboard, waiting below to catch the perfect moment against a backdrop of the Pacific Ocean and Marina del Rey. After that "yes!", celebrate with complimentary champagne and a dozen red roses.

At Calico Yacht Charter, we have ensured the success of dozens of romantic proposals! Your captain can pretend like it's a normal harbor cruise, so your partner is never the wiser. He will work directly with you to ensure that every detail is how you imagine it. After booking, give us a call when you have a secluded moment. Let us know what you envision, and we'll make it happen!
