Kayaking is one of the added treats on a daylong sail
On fair weather days, you can kayak Frenchy’s and Cathedral Coves or explore tide pools near Cat Rock

Not a sailor? Want to learn? Capt. Dan is happy to teach even if you don’t specifically sign up for lessons.

We can sail about 330 days a year. We’re southern Californians and avoid sailing in rain and extreme winds. It’s almost always cool on the water, but winter to summer average highs are only about 10 degrees apart. Capt Dan’s favorite time? Just about anytime you want to go!
