Looking for sea lions and marine life on a dining cruise

Do you ever get to see any marine life?

Spotting marine life in Marina del Rey is a regular treat. As dining cruises leisurely glide through the harbor, keep your eyes peeled for sea lions basking on the docks or blue herons and brown pelicans snagging bait off the fishing boats.

What is the dress attire?

Brunch cruise calls for casual vibes – think khakis, nice jeans, dresses, and button-up shirts. Signature dinner and holiday-themed cruises up the game with cocktail attire like sports coats, slacks, and dresses. Leave casual jeans, t-shirts, shorts, gym shoes, and flip flops onshore – they're a no-go!
