Our Catalina Adventure is for the sailor that wants to take the next step from coastal cruising to blue water cruiser. Step aboard a legendary Tayana blue water cruiser and enjoy a 4 to 5-day excursion that will give you the experience of what world travelers have enjoyed sailing around the world. This sailing adventure is for the sailors that want the hands-on learning experience of sailing from port to port and building the knowledge and experience needed to take the next step in their sailing career.

Gone Sailing Charters offers sailing from San Diego to Santa Catalina Island where we give our cruisers a few choices of destination:

  • Avalon
  • Two Harbors
  • Selected Anchorages

Our Catalina Island adventures starts with your selection the following:

  • Night motor sail
  • Early morning departure (day/sail)

These private yacht charters take approximately 8 to 13 hours depending on your selected destination. Sailing to Catalina from San Diego can be split with an overnight stay in Ocean Side or Dana Point.

The majority of the time night motor sails are normally calm with the sea magically lite by the moon and stars when full and clear skies permit. You will see the coastal lights dip into the distant horizon sailing up to 40 miles offshore. The skies become alive with lights of the stars shining brightly into the horizon.

Gone Sailing Charters offers comfortable and excellent sleeping conditions. When you awake, breakfast will be waiting and Santa Catalina Island will be off our port side. The view of Santa Catalina Island is spectacular! The island at sunrise from this vantage point is a special event few get to experience.

Gone Sailing Charters provides a safe and enjoyable experience that can host your next adventure, no matter the plan. This can includes diving, camping, hotel visits or just a relaxing getaway onboard Vision.

Some adventures include whale and dolphin sightings.
