From 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., sunset cruises in inflatable Goby boats glide from Marina del Rey to Santa Monica Pier, hugging the coastline of Venice Beach. From the boat, passengers catch glimpses of Venice’s colorful characters and often spot dolphins and other aquatic wildlife. Along the way, they can also snack on a spread of wine and cheese, augmented with meats, hot chocolate, and tea. And for a lasting memory, a videographer documents the whole trip free of charge.
Custom Scuba’s two boats aren’t typical leisure vessels—they’re inflatable boats, originally designed for Navy SEALS. And like Navy SEALS, the company’s captains use the boats to reach hidden channels and hard-to-access waterways. However, unlike Navy SEALS, their top priority is fun. With more than 10 years of experience each, the two captains helm snorkeling adventures, fishing trips, and sunset cruises that showcase the area’s natural beauty at sites often not visited by other companies. True to its company name, the team also offers scuba classes, teaching basic underwater skills and doling out dive certifications with a teaching motto of never rushing a student and always putting safety first and cannonball competitions last.
