Im looking at possibly chartering a boat in October for a week to 10 days. It doesn't have to be Oxnard but we do want to be in that general area. I would like to sail around the Channel Islands and Catalina etc., but open to suggestions also. My wife and I are just wanting to sight see the area and experience sailing on the Pacific. We are looking for suggestions on a charter co to use and some suggestions on an itinerary. We have sailed Florida many times and the Vi many times. Just wanting to see the west coast area.

Thank you so much for the info. We found a company called Blue Pacific I believe out a Oxnard. Spoke with them today and was somewhat impressed. I do not know anything about them but felt comfortable with them. You may know something about them and your more then welcome to pm me if its anything I should be concerned about.

I hate catching moorings when you have a perfectly good anchor on board.lol I looked up flights from Louisiana and its $321 a ticket to Lax. What did you mean by late in the season and watch for a weather window? Looking at the map it looks like the Channels are not as protected as Catalina. What kind of weather and sea conditions would we be likely to deal with. Thanks in advance. Im embarrassed to say I know nothing about the west coast but would really like to see it.

Thank you so much for the information. Im going to order that cruising guide and some charts and call it good. On a side note: My wife and I were watching shark week on Discovery last night and they had a lady on there saying October is when their is the most number of Great Whites in California! I guess no swimming for us!lol Im starting to get excited about going. Hopefully tomorrow I will have a boat reserved and plane tickets. Thank you again for the help.
