It is a one-of-a-kind tiki boat charter experience based in the heart of the Newport Beach harbor, one of California's hotspots and surrounded by famous restaurants and coastal activities.
It has found a unique, untapped concept. It differentiates itself from the competition with its signature boat called The Big Bamboo, a 24' Godfrey pontoon boat decorated with authentic bamboo, thatch, and it even has two palm trees to capture the Tiki experience. Complete with a comfortable couched dining area, small dance floor, and customized hardwood furnishings throughout and a sit-up bar, the Big Bamboo provides people a distinctive experience of exploring Newport Beach in an island vibe setting.
Spacious enough for six people, its agile design can accommodate any occasion. Since its launch in 2020, there has been wine tastings, business meetings, and every kind of celebration on the Big Bamboo. They also make available various pre-packaged options from, for instance, Hawaiian happy hour, Tiki Lunch, and the most famous sunset cruise. Early birds book the sunrise cruise while it is peacefully serene to enjoy the exquisite magnificence of what the harbor offers. Custom cruises are available to anyone's request.
An excellent middle-ground for boat charter experiences available in the market. The very concept of the Big Bamboo is unique in itself - it is not a boat where there is little room to move around. It is also not a yacht that has a high rental rate. provides a small, intimate venue for people to enjoy their friends' company and have a great time without having to break the bank.
Usually this boat operates around Newport Beach, CA.
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 can be found in Marina del Rey, a mere stones throw from Santa Monica.
