Step aboard one of the premier Sportfisher yachts on the West Coast, the Marlin Magic, and enjoy a day trip to Catalina Island. Not available for private charter, the 92’ Marlin Magic’s expansive indoor and outdoor social spaces will provide a first-class experience as you and your seven guests spend a day at sea.
Your day begins at 8 a.m. when you board the 92’ Marlin Magic in Newport Harbor. You’ll enjoy breakfast prepared by the yacht’s private gourmet chef as you set off for Catalina Island. Once you arrive in Catalina, you and your party can hop off and spend three hours exploring Catalina on your own if you choose to do so. We wouldn’t blame you though if you didn’t want to leave the comfort and luxury of the Marlin Magic! When you return from your island excursion, the chef will serve you a carefully crafted lunch as you sit back, sip a delicious cocktail and enjoy your relaxing cruise back to Newport Harbor.
Date to be mutually agreed upon with donor & winner. Passengers board shortly before 8 a.m. departure and disembark at 3 p.m. Activities/excursions while on Catalina Island are not included.
