You are invited to participate in our October 13 - 20, 2012 Catalina Newport Flotilla.
Our fleet of approximately ten boats will sail the same itinerary and gather for cookouts, dinners ashore, dinghy races and other activities. Experienced skippers and first-time crew are both welcome! Your flotilla leader will be on hand throughout for advice and guidance.
About 25 nautical miles offshore lies beautiful Santa Catalina Island. Pristine waters surround the island, nearly all of which is a nature preserve. There our fleet will visit Avalon, jewel of the island, with fine dining, jeep tours, zip line, and an underwater park, as well as rustic Isthmus Cove for an exclusive cocktail hour at the hilltop Banning House, hiking or spotting wild buffalo. Then we’ll enjoy a typical downwind crossing, spotting dolphins and perhaps migrating blue whales, to visit Newport Beach and Long Beach where you may tour the Queen Mary or visit the renowned Aquarium of the Pacific.
The flotilla departs from and returns to Marina del Rey, CA. To charter, call (800) 398-8830 and ask about the ASA Catalina Newport Flotilla.
To participate in your own boat, email Capt.
If you are a qualified captain or interested in being crew, we have boats looking for both.
This trip is designed to accommodate beginners and experienced sailors alike. Families are welcome.
We look forward to seeing you next summer in Southern California!
