It’s big, bold and very glitzy. Los Angeles is probably one of the world’s most glamorous and crazy cities, making it both enthralling and exhausting. But with the ocean right there on the doorstep, sailing in Los Angeles is a thrilling way to recharge those batteries and enjoy a whole other side to LA LA Land.
Most of our Sailo yacht charters in Los Angeles can be found in Marina del Rey, a mere stones throw from Santa Monica.
