Why not do it with just the two of you?
My wife and I left Gig Harbor on August 22 and arrived in San Diego
October 1. It was her first trip offshore. We stopped in:
Half Moon Bay
we never had more than one over night and really enjoyed the sight seeing and the trip.
I've done the trip several other times and have also stopped in and enjoyed
it is a very easy and comfortable trip for two if you pay attention to the NWS forecasts and plan on making a lot of stops.
My wife loved the trip and it made her much more comfortable when we left San Diego
for some longer passages.
