HALF DAY CHARTERS

Come join the crew of Blue on your private yacht for a relaxing half day cruise along the beautiful Ventura coastline. After leaving the docks, we will head out a few miles into the amazing Santa Barbara Channel. We are fortunate that this area hosts one of the largest concentrations of marine mammals found in the world, so we will keep a lookout for sea lions, dolphins and depending on the time of year, one of the many species of whales that visit the channel. The cruise includes a variety of snacks and non-alcoholic drinks in case you get hungry or thirsty along the way. As with all our charters, you are more than welcome to bring along any alcoholic beverages you like. We will supply the ice to keep all your drinks nice and cold.

While underway, we will be on the lookout for sea lions, dolphins and the many species of whales that make the channel their home. Once reaching our destination, the crew will prepare a gourmet lunch while you and your guests enjoy sitting on BLUE’s decks soaking in the beautiful sights of nature that surround you. After lunch we will continue our journey around the island before heading back across the channel to our home port. This cruise includes a gourmet lunch, along with a variety of snacks and non-alcoholic drinks.
