Hop on the Bushman's Friend and "take the helm" on your adventure, literally and figuratively! Want to sit sideways on a windy afternoon? You got it! Prefer a mellow sail paired with your favorite drinks and apps? No problem! Guests can go for a swim, help with the sails, play their own tunes, and wave to the sea lions. With Jolly Sailing you get to craft your adventure.

Jolly Sailing offers affordable private charters for up to 6 guests on a 32' Ericson sailboat. I launched this business after achieving my 100 Gross Ton Captain's License and working professionally on various vessels in New Zealand and SoCal. Every summer I have the pleasure of racing Catalina 37' sailboats and in 2015 I was a crew member on the first-place vessel in the Newport to Ensenada race. I am a people person and love what I do for work. Who wouldn't? As someone who has done a fair share of travel, I welcome customers of diverse background with "open arms" and my customers truly enjoy their outings.

This is a legal commercial sailing business approved by the City of Long Beach Marine Bureau. The vessel is annually Coast Guard Inspected for safety and I am currently Red Cross CPR and lifeguarding certified.

Where you'll be

The glorious Pacific Ocean! We will start at Shoreline Village, pass by the beautiful Queen Mary (troopship used in WWII) and head about three miles out to the Long Beach Breakwall. Along the way we will sail around the astronaut islands and if its a clear day, we'll enjoy amazing views of Catalina Island on one side and the Los Angeles mountains on the other.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 17 reviews.

GO ON THIS EXPERIENCE! Captain Max was amazing! He was knowledgeable, professional, and yet still made feel like I had known him for years! I wish I had done this excursion with Max and Jolly Sailing LB sooner. In addition, he gave me great local tips. The boat was clean and had brand new sails. I could tell that Max’s main concern was safety and making sure I felt comfortable and that I was having fun. He truly cares and his guests experience. BOOK THIS EXPERIENCE NOW!

Max is an incredible host on his sailboat. He was so friendly, on top of everything, and relaxed. The space was really created for all of us, including Max, to create wonderful memories, have a special time, and feel and experience the magic of being on the water. I wish I could recommend Max more than is allowed on this site. He is so worth every penny and moment. Thank you, Max, for helping to create a lifelong memory for myself and my friends.

We had an amazing time in the ocean! Max was a great host and a guide. His sailboat was super clean and comfy 5*! Max shared his experience and nice stories about his passion- sailing. Also, he did not mind teaching and showing the guests how his sailboat works, we could even control the steering wheel ! Moreover, Max was very hospitable and friendly- communicated with every single guest and offered his private water, sunscreen and a hat. My boyfriend and I had a really pleasant and relaxing trip. We definitely recommend you guys to grab this tour and enjoy an amazing sailboat experience! Thank you Max!!
