Discovering California by boat…

California is home to some of the best boating destinations in the United States! Many say that you can’t beat the opportunities on board in Southern California… but what about the state’s amazing lakes? Here are our recommendations of the best places to set sail:

Santa Catalina Island is a must! Discover the towns of Avalon and Two Harbors, home to stunning anchorages full of marine life and towns offering shopping, dining, and entertainment options. Depart from Los Angeles or Newport Beach for smooth sailing to the island.

The San Francisco / Oakland area is perfect for a full day of on board a sailboat. View the Golden Gate Bridge from a whole new view and learn the ropes of sailing in the bay.

You can also beach/town hop the SoCal coast. Charming waterfront towns like Santa Monica, Newport Beach, and Long Beach are worth enjoying by boat and making excellent day trip opportunities.

For the more adventurous, make the long journey to the Channel Islands with a yacht charter.. And on the way, you might just get to go whale watching!

Head to San Diego if you are a passionate angler! Click&Boat offers a variety of fishing charters available for rent in the area.

If you are looking for the best of both worlds this summer, head to Lake Tahoe for the fresh mountain air and the perfect lake boating destination.

Are boat rentals available with a skipper in California?

Yes, they are! With Click&Boat, most boat hires in California are available with an experienced captain and crew. All you have to do is sit back and relax while the skipper and crew take care of everything from mooring, navigating, and more! This is also a great option for those who are planning parties or celebrations on board!

Our captains are local experts who know the area best! Allow them to show you their favorite places: from sandy beaches and coves. They might even have recommendations on the area’s best restaurants and bars if you are interested in docking’n’dining.

For those interested in bareboat charters and who have the proper sailing qualifications, don’t hesitate to contact our owners on Click&Boat for more information and availabilities.

What type of boat should I rent?

For longer stays on board, we recommend chartering a sailboat or catamaran. Sailboats are perfect for accommodating couples or small families. While catamarans are known for their stability, spaciousness, and comfort, making it easy to sleep about 6 to 8 guests (depending on the model and length of the vessel) on board.

Those interested in hourly or daily rentals might prefer a motorboat or pontoon boat. They are relatively easy to navigate and manage, and you can cruise at faster speeds compared to sailing boats. An added plus with motorboats is that you can also practice water sports like wakeboarding and water-skiing.

Pontoon boats or party barges are great for hosting parties and get-togethers, due to their open deck plan and deck plan. Some even come with a built-in bar and cup holders as well as a fridge and Bluetooth audio systems, perfect for a party on Lake Tahoe or in Fremont.

If you have a higher budget and are looking for a luxurious stay on board, then a luxury yacht charter is for you!
