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.

Location and Destination Guide

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.

What type of yacht should I charter?

No matter what type of yacht you choose to charter, we know that you will have a fantastic time on the water. If you are more about the journey, and want a relaxing time aboard, then choose from one of the many sailboats on the platform. If you are more about the destination, and going fast, check out the powerboats on Sailo. For an exclusive experience, Sailo recommends chartering a luxurious yacht for the day. Finally, Sailo has access to many event boats as well for group outings from 50 - 1,000 guests. If you are still unsure, then just ask! more...

What should I bring?

Bring yourself, and some comfortable clothes suitable to the season you are going to be out on the water. Please keep in mind that it is often 10 degrees cooler out on the water, so a jacket or windbreaker is never a bad idea. We also recommend bringing a hat, sunscreen, and sunglasses, as well as a swimsuit if appropriate for your charter location. Please coordinate with your captain regarding any food or drinks that you wish to bring aboard. For term-charters, Sailo recommends using soft-sided luggage, and keeping it simple. more...

How long does a rental last?

The basic daily rental is structured as either a quarter-, half-, or full-day. A quarter-day is two hours, a half-day is four hours, and a full-day is eight hours. You can also discuss a custom trip with the boat by contacting the owner through Sailo. Most term charters (weekly rentals) are from Saturday to Saturday. Keep in mind that the boat generally needs to be back at the dock by Friday evening, and you will need to be off the boat on Saturday morning so they can prepare the boat for the next guests. more...
