Central Coast Charters is now operating sailing excursions at Avila Beach, California within 20 minutes of San Luis Obispo, Pismo beach or Morro bay. Come out and enjoy life on one of our spectacular Sunset Sails, afternoon excursions or our educational kid friendly Sea Life Sails. If you are here for a vacation or a local looking for something new to do that the whole family can enjoy, what could better than sailing together on a beautiful 44 ft yacht. Come out and enjoy the sun on your face, the wind in your hair and the sparkling water all around you as you learn to steer a real ocean going yacht through the waves! Participate as much as you like in the sailing of the boat or sit back enjoy a glass of local wine and take in the sights. On all of our trips we serve light snacks, sodas, juice, beer and wine.
To ensure a safe, enjoyable atmosphere aboard “Spirit” all of our excursions are limited to only six passengers with plenty of room for all to sit back, relax and take in the scenery.

Mornings along the Central Coast tend to have light winds and calm conditions that are ideal for observing wildlife. This is a perfect time for new sailors and families to enjoy a relaxing adventure while learning about the natural world that surrounds us. Enjoy the narrative in the cockpit or sit up on the bow of the boat and take in all wonderful sights and sounds of this rich environment. While out on the water we commonly observe sea lions, sea otters and a large variety of seabirds. SeaLife Sails depart daily at 10 am and return at 12:30 pm. $59 adult, $49 children under 12
