Orca (named after Quint's boat in JAWS) is a 40 foot sailing sloop docked in San Pedro California. configured with deep keel and classic main options, this Beneteau Oceanis 393 offers great comfort and secure sailing with generous accommodations below deck. She's equipped with two staterooms, two heads (bathrooms), full galley, radar, GPS and all manner of safety and communication gear.
When joining us for a sail, please observe the following:
1) Soft sole shoes or sneakers please. In winter months, dress for somewhat cooler air on the water.
2) Orca is not available for charter. We sail with friends and friends of friends!
3) While Orca always has drinks and snacks aboard, we always welcome more. So bring a drink for the Orca!
4) Don't forget the sunscreen and sunglasses! Hats are also a good idea.
5) If you are prone to motion sickness, take Dramamine pills 2-3 hours prior to sailing. Wrist bands are also effective for many sailors.
6) Yikes! Please don't cancel at the last minute! Doing so means you may have kept someone else from sailing in your place.

Orca sails out of Cabrillo Way Marina. We chose this location after learning that it has the best sailing grounds and conditions. It's also the closest run to Catalina island and offers more local harbors and attractions to visit vs. Marina Del Rey. Recent renovations have placed Cabrillo among the nicest marinas to keep a boat and offers uncrowded conditions and tons of free secure parking, which Marina Del Rey does not. 22nd Street Landing is within walking distance and has the best clam chowder on Earth, while San Pedro hosts great restaurants and the only "real" pizza I've enjoyed in LA in the last three years at Bonello's New York Pizza!
