| Sail Southern California's Channel Islands with Capt. Dan
Sail Channel Islands is Southern California's premier small ship sailing charter service exploring the pristine Channel Islands and the Ventura and Santa Barbara Coast.
Luxury crewed sailing yachts - Indulge yourself for a few hours or several days aboard Sancerre, our luxury 46 foot Jeanneau sailing yacht. Let us create the perfect adventure tour around the islands for
your family, group or special occasion. Anchor each night in a secluded cove, enjoying hearty meals at each stop. Explore the islands, kayak the kelp beds, take the dinghy and scout the anchorage or just relax and soak in the scenery. Abundant wildlife provides photo opportunities of elephant seals, dolphins, sealions and maybe even a whale encounter. Take a day cruise with captain and crew to Anacapa Island, an overnight to Santa Cruz Island or stay with us for four or five days and visit all of the northern islands. Sit back and luxuriate, or bear a hand at helm and winch. CALL TODAY FOR AVAILABILITY AND RATES - 805.750.7828.
Stay-Cation & Eco-tour - The Islands of the Santa Barbara Channel are known as the Galapagos of North America. Separated from mainland U.S. by 20 miles or so, there are numerous species that live only here. We'll cruise these waters under sail power, leaving only momentary bubbles. We use biodiesel, we recycle and we encourage you to come by train. In fact, we'll even pick you up at the station and drop you off on your way home.
Sailing on a budget - Looking for an economical way to sail these waters? Book a crewed sailing charter on Wiley, our seasoned Catalina 36. Enjoy a no-frills charter that can run from two hours to a full day.
Learn To Sail - Take private sailing lessons at our Capt. Dan's Sail Channel Islands Sailing School. Capt. Dan will take you from a novice sailor to a competent skipper at your own pace and on your schedule. We offer one-on-one, hands-on sailing instruction, navigational training and clinics that are customized to suit your needs and experience.
Celebrate! - Let us help you arrange your next celebration: birthday, wedding, promotion, anniversary - do it in style aboard our luxury sailing yacht. We're experts in small weddings. And, on the somber side, we're also here to help make final arrangements for a loved one.
Gift Certificates are available for any lesson or custom cruise package aboard our small ship. Call Capt. Dan at 805.750.7828 and we'll send your personalized certificate within a few hours. Just print it out and present it.
