If You Have a Full Day...

You’re the ultimate leisure traveler! You could easily pair a couple of activities from the quick-stay sections, or indulge in one of the following signature sightseeing opportunities.

  • Charter a private skippered yacht and sail along the Los Angeles coastline. Enjoy views of popular landmarks like the world-famous Venice Beach Boardwalk or the Santa Monica Pier’s amusement park. Time: 3+ hours, up to you.
  • Join an open-party fishing trip into Santa Monica Bay for an ultimate deep-sea experience with Marina del Rey Sportfishing. This same vendor offers whale-watching excursions, which are especially successful between January and March. Time: 5-9 hours.
  • Catch the Hop-on Hop-Off Starline Tours bus at Fisherman’s Village for a narrated tour on the Green Line, which includes Marina del Rey, Venice Beach, and Santa Monica. Hop off at your leisure to explore, then catch the next bus (they’re every 30-45 minutes) back to beautiful Marina del Rey. Time: 1.5-hour loop (without disembarking).
