Central Coast Sailing Charters is offering wonderful sailing excursions for the whole family departing daily from Avila Beach, California within 20 minutes of San Luis Obispo, Pismo beach or Morro bay.
A wonderful real life experience is awaiting your discovery with Central Coast Sailing Charters. We would like to share with you the stunning beauty and vibrant natural history of our Central Coast waters that abound with wildlife at every turn. On your voyage you will be treated to a variety of conditions from the calm, gentle waters in San Luis Bay that are protected from the prevailing winds and swell by the Montana de Oro headlands to the exciting wind and waves of the outer bay. This creates a perfect opportunity for the first time sailor to experience the joys of sailing from the comfortable, secure cockpit of our 44-foot sailing vessel “Spirit" and then once every one has thier "sea legs" we can venture to the outer bay for some more exhilarating sailing. Along the way we commonly travel in the company of sea lions, sea otters, dolphins, occasional whales and the abundant, ever present seabirds that live and nest here.
2.5 hr Day and afternoon sails are $69 for adults and $59 for children 12 and under
6 passenger maximum occupancy insures that its never crowded
Getting to and from the boat requires that each person in your group be able to walk up and down one flight of stairs. We will do
everything we can to assist you, but some agility is required to board the boat. The trip logistics require that you load from a floating dock into an inflatable "Zodiac" type boat (7 passenger
13 ft. long) then ferry out to the sailboat. Were you will then be required to climb 2 steps to get aboard. There are good handholds but you must be able to hold on and pull yourself up a few
feet while stepping off a boat that is moving slightly. If you feel this might be an issue for you please consider booking a private charter so that we can help you aboard without delaying
other guests. To this day we have had many people with moderate to severe handicaps aboard SPIRIT and would be happy to help you go sailing. Please call if you have questions.
