Captained charter recommendations near Los Angeles?

My wife and I are taking a long weekend in L.A. soon and Id like to do a few hours, maybe a half day, on the water. I found a lot of options at Marina Del Rey, but most started at around $600 for a few hours and others were double or triple that.

Would love recommendations on affordable options and fun captains who will indulge a wannabe sailor and his wife. Id like someone who will let us get involved with the sail, steering, etc. If $600 is reasonable, Id love to know that too, in which case I may try bribing one of you with some of Safeways finest boxed wine for a ride on your boat. Thanks.

Re: Captained charter recommendations near Los Angeles?

Thanks. I tried that site and they want $250 for a skipper for a half day rental, plus a $150 non-member fee, so it’s $400 before adding the boat, gas, insurance, and other fees.

This has been the least expensive site I’ve seen so far, so maybe chartering is a lot more than I expected. I was hoping to find a 2-3 hour rental for $200-$300 with a captain, but it doesn’t look like that’s happening.
