Los Angeles’ Most Popular Experiences

Los Angeles can be a good place for fishing. Here are three of the most popular places to fish in Los Angeles.

Fishing Straight from the Boat
Apart from Rodeo Drive and Hollywood’s bright lights, Los Angeles offers plenty of attractive fishing locations just off the shore. You can easily reach these attractions on a day trip if you arrange a boat rental in Los Angeles.

Catalina Island
If you arrange your boat rental in Los Angeles, it will only take you four hours to reach Catalina Island from Long Beach. This is a great place for nature lovers and other outdoor enthusiasts. You can pack hiking gear, explore the many trails on the island, and watch for whales, dolphins, and crayfish in the private coves.

Channel Islands National Park and National Marine Sanctuary
The Channel Islands National Park and National Marine Sanctuary off the coast are some of the world’s richest marine habitats for whale watching and marine wildlife sightings. Many whales, like humpback whales, blue whales, orcas, and gray whales, can sometimes be seen.

Los Angeles’ Best Bodies of Water

Point Mugu State Park

This park in the Santa Monica mountains national recreation area features up to five miles of ocean shoreline with sandy beaches, rocky bluffs, and dunes. Large trees and wide grassy valleys border two major river canyons. This park can easily be reached on your Los Angeles boat rental.

Santa Monica Pier

Sail your boat rental to Santa Monica Pier, where you’ll find the Santa Monica Yacht Harbor. Since 1933, it has hosted a large collection of yachts, fishing boats, and even a cruise liner to Catalina Island. Today, much of that is gone, but you can still sail your boat around the pier.

Marina del Rey

The Marina del Rey Marina is an excellent location for a memorable date. Dock your boat rental at the guest slips and watch an outdoor concert in the park while sipping from bottles of icy champagne. Enjoy snacks on the boardwalk, take a casual stroll, or sail along the bay to watch the sunset.
