Sailing in the Golden State

Exploring the Golden State by a Sailo boat charter

Year round sunshine plus lots of stunning places to discover by your private yacht charter make sailing in California one of America’s best boating experiences. From San Diego to San Francisco, discover the Golden State with Sailo.

The West Coast is a magnet, not just for wannabe movie stars, but also for sunseekers and boating aficionados. In fact, California has on average 284 sunny days each year, meaning it’s the perfect playground for outdoor funseekers.

Most visitors to the Golden State will pass through one of her oceanside cities, and a sailboat charter in Los Angeles or San Diego sailing charters make for a great day trip or sailing experience.

From classic sailboats or catamarans, to luxury motor yachts and party boats, you’ll find plenty of ways to get out onto the water with Sailo.

See the city from a different side

Undoubtedly, one of the best ways to experience a city such as San Francisco or San Diego is from the water. A sunset cruise with a Sailo catamaran or sailboat rental in San Diego or Los Angeles could be both a romantic occasion, or the perfect venue for a party. Sailing California and more precisely San Francisco Bay is on the bucket list for man, for good reason, with the icons of the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz the perfect backdrop to a day out with a yacht charter.

Explore offshore

Beyond the beautiful shores of California, there is a whole other side that most visitors never get to see. Sailing in California with a Sailo sailboat charter means you can head to the Channel Islands or Santa Catalina Island at your leisure. Intrepid explorers might also enjoy taking their boat rental to explore the coastal towns of this stunning state.
