Past Flotillas and Adventures

Local Destinations

Local Destinations

We're very thankful to be located in a destination in and of itself. When we're not crossing oceans, we're taking adventures in our own backyard (if you consider the west coast of the continental USA our backyard!). Whether it's crossing the ocean to the Farallon islands or heading up the San Pablo Bay to Benica, our little slice of the world promises excitement, adventure, and that refreshing pacific breeze.

Africa does not disappoint on land or well off the coast. Our trips to Tanzania offer spectacular sights, wildlife like you've never seen, and enriching time spent with the locals and their culture. Well of its coasts and into the Indian ocean are unspoiled sailing destinations like the Seychelles, which feature an abundance of white sand beaches, truly premier snorkeling and diving, bird and wildlife sanctuaries, unique vegetation, and even rock climbing.

Previous OCSC Vacations:

  • Curated We choose the best destinations and the best dates, then we reserve several boats for the location. For example, recent flotillas have explored Greece, Tonga, Mexico and the British Virgin Islands.
  • Preparedness We host a series of planning parties to explain the details and answer questions from anyone interested in going with us.
  • All Skills Levels Flotilla charters are ideal for first-time skippers, since OCSC helps in cruise planning, introduces individuals to others interested in sharing a yacht, and sends an experienced OCSC group leader along.
  • No Stress Guided by OCSC, the whole process is immediately less stressful and much more enjoyable.

Giving Back

Since it’s founding, OCSC has been committed to environmental protection. We have always felt that especially since our business is built on enjoying nature, we are compelled to support organizations  that work as guardians for all of us. Part of our approach has been to focus our efforts and appreciation on areas that we are privileged to visit on our bareboat flotillas.

To this end your participation in our flotilla includes an additional contribution of $50 per person. The funds we collect are donated to an  environmental protection initiative in the region we visit.

We are looking forward to a spectacular vacation with you! Please contact us at the club if you have any questions. We're available Monday through Friday at 800.223.2984.
