Open to the public, by reservation only. A 25+ year tradition aboard Ventura

Boarding begins at 6:15, - 6:30, then after the captain's welcome aboard chat, off we go, return 9:00 (ish).  Sometimes wind and tide bring us back a bit later. 

Along with the sound of waves and wind on a wooden hull, the friendly atmosphere aboard is accompanied by the buzz of pleasant conversations and our selected fav sailing tunes.  Unique among charter vessels, Ventura encourages our guests to bring along their favorite wines or beers (no hard alcohol permitted).
