Want to get a taste of the cruising life?
Meet Esprit in sunny Santa Barbara for an adventure that highlights all the best that Southern California sailing has to offer! We will spend the first night anchored outside this lovely harbor as you get acquainted with the boat and settled in to you private cabin.
After a relaxed breakfast in the cockpit, we will set off for the Channel Islands! This island chain has been called the “Galapagos of the Americas” and is a marine sanctuary. The landscape of these rugged islands is absolutely stunning, and the wildlife is abundant! We’ll be joined by pods of dolphins as we island-hop, and may even see some passing whales! We will absolutely spend a day or two anchored off the renowned Catalina Island. This island is much more developed that the others and has a rich history. The two main ports, Avalon and Two Harbors, are gorgeous towns with plenty of shops and restaurants to explore!
The weather and our own curiosities will determine the pace and exact itinerary. There will be a couple overnight passages and plenty of time for exploring ashore. A true cruising schedule!
We will end our journey in San Diego, the southernmost port in California. Beyond that … MEXICO!
