What you'll do

COVID-19 UPDATE: When we begin running this experience again, I will be changing certain parts of the experience until we are free of the pandemic. First, the boat will be completely disinfected after each trip. Next, we will limit groups to four people, down from six. We will not be serving drinks, but feel free to bring drinks and snacks. My son and I will be wearing N95 masks the entire trip. We expect guests to wear masks unless they are all part of the same group. If you move farther than six feet from the rest of the group, you can, of course, remove your mask.

We'll prep and sail my 40' Hunter sailboat out of Marina Del Rey and up the coast toward Santa Monica Pier. We'll pass the famous Muscle Beach, the Santa Monica Mountains rising from the Pacific in front, and Catalina Island hovering on the horizon behind you. The trip will last around 2 1/2 hours.

I'll provide drinks: ice cold Coronas, soda and water. You can help sail the boat, steer, pull in sheets or just sit back in one of the three comfortable sailing lounge chairs available and enjoy the ride. If you've never sailed or are a seasoned mariner who just wants to escape hectic LA for peace and quiet, this experience is for you. There is nothing like watching the sunset from the cockpit of a boat -- you are literally surrounded by light, swimming in oranges and reds.

I've been sailing since I was a kid with my dad. I taught sailing as a counselor at a camp in Maine. I spent six months on a King Crab fishing boat in the Bering Sea. Since then, I've raced my dad's 27' trimaran on Penobscot Bay in Maine. I've owned this sailboat for over two years. I sailed it down from San Francisco during active March weather and often sail it to Catalina and Santa Cruz Island. Finally, I recently got my Coast Guard OUPV Captain's license.

This was amazing! The sunset was so beautiful. George has a great knowledge of the area and shared fun facts throughout the ride. He also shared some fun stories about past boat trip experiences. 10/10 would highly recommend booking this if you are thinking about it!

George was very responsive before the trip. Every time I had a question, he answered with details within the hour or so! He was super friendly during the trip and allowed us to walk around, take pictures and offered drinks/blankets as well. I will definitely recommend this experience to anyone looking for a fun activity :) He is also very easy to talk to. Towards the end of the trip, my entire group just chatted with him while watching the sunset.

This by far was one of my fondest and most memorable airbnb experiences. Not only is George truly knowledgeable, he made my husband and I feel very welcomed. This experience is one of a kind. Highly recommend this.

Going out on George’s boat was the highlight of our trip. Fortunately for us the weather was calm and the sunset was perfect. Also came across a pod of dolphins and a friendly seal. I would recommend the trip to all

Highly recommend the sunset sail with George. Sunsets in LA are beautiful, and extra special if you’re on the water. George is a great host and made us feel very welcome.
