Sail aboard Mayflower, a small traditional tall ship, from Newport Beach, CA to the remote island paradise of Catalina. Experience the adventure of charting a course based on the wind and tide to cross the San Pedro Channel. Relax and enjoy the adventure of a long sail in this olde-time mode of travel. Experience the thrill of sea spray on deck or take cover in the pilot house and enjoy the ocean views, where you'll see sea birds, sea lions, and possibly dolphins.
Once at Catalina, we will moor the boat in a harbor outside the tiny town of Two Harbors, where we will be able to kick back and enjoy the serenity of the remote island destination. We will spend some time relaxing on the island, hike to at least one scenic overlook, and have the opportunity to swim, snorkel, and kayak in the clear cerulean waters.
Two nights will be spent in our on-board sleeping accommodations (generous for a boat our size, but not for the claustrophobic). Two queen-sized bunks in the aft cabin and two single bunks in the forward cabin sleep a total of 6 passengers.
Six meals are included, and one will be free-for-all (there are food options on the island).
**If you would like to spend a day in Avalon, we can do a 4-day trip. We will show you around Avalon on the first day and sail up the coast to Two Harbors on Day 2--anchoring for lunch and snorkeling en-route. Contact us to make arrangements.
