AN UNFORGETTABLE WILDLIFE ADVENTURE TOUR AWAITS

A popular use of the Aolani is watching marine life from aboard our beautiful catamaran, for an unforgettable day cruise. San Diego offers amazing opportunities for close encounters, and aboard the Aolani is about as close as you can get! Because of the Aolani’s unique versatility, we can use our powerful, twin turbo diesel engines to get you out to the open ocean twice as fast as a conventional sailboat, and then cut the engines for the tranquility and calm necessary to view the glorious San Diego marine life from an intimate vantage point of Gray, finback, humpback, and even blue whales can be commonly found in the area, as well as dolphins, seals, and various other marine creatures.

While November through April is the peak season for blue-whale watching in this part of the Pacific Ocean, the beautiful San Diego weather can accommodate marine-life viewing all year round. Our dual-hull catamaran ensures a stable, safe and smooth ride for your whale watching excursion every time, so you’ll enjoy your expedition with minimal turbulence. The Aolani is a clean, non-intrusive option for viewing the wildlife of the San Diego Bay while ensuring the safety and comfort of our guests. Make the most of the natural treasures of the San Diego area, and book a day cruise with Aolani today!

AT SEA
Being a private charter company, versatility is one of our most prominent and unique strengths. Our twin engines can race you out to the ocean faster than any conventional sailboat, but we can also cut the engines at any time for a quiet, clean sailing experience. We can accommodate up to 48 guests plus crew on board at any time, and our interior and exterior spaces are designed so that in the unlikely event that the San Diego weather isn’t perfect, everyone can still fit comfortably in the salon. And while we have a wide variety of planned outings available, you can choose your own adventure, and charter the expedition that’s just right for you!

One of the many things that set us apart from other sailing options in San Diego is that we are Coast Guard certified to sail in the open ocean, not just in the San Diego Bay. This leaves your options wide open for your custom yacht charter. San Diego has many amazing shoreline attractions for day trips as well as unforgettable overnight trips to Catalina Island, where you can anchor for one or more nights and explore that unique, sparsely populated and idyllic island. For the wildlife lover, the months of November through April tend to be perfect for getting up close and personal with Gray, Finback, and even Blue Whales during their southern migration down to Mexico. Other amazing ocean creatures such as pods of dolphins, sharks, and seals can be observed year-round as well. Our expertly-trained captain and crew make for a safe and non-disruptive experience for the wildlife, and a smooth and comfortable experience for our guests. On-board, we have modern audio-visual capabilities for corporate presentations or private celebrations with 2 interior flat screen TV’s and surround sound. Options abound for dining onboard the Aolani, from our fine selection of snacks and sandwiches, to gourmet catering from some of San Diego’s favorite restaurants. A full bar of premium liquors and wines is also available!

With all of the versatility of this amazing catamaran, the options for how to enjoy your chartered adventure with Aolani are virtually endless! Let us help you custom design your ideal excursion on the water, with a no-obligation consultation. Contact the 2016 A-list winner for San Diego boats and call today and start planning the trip of a lifetime!
