Join a Fishing Charter or Just Have Breakfast on
Your Private L.A. Tour
We prefer early morning tours in the winter months when they are not too early. No matter what time the sun rises we can have our private Los Angeles tour guests somewhere on the coast to see the early risers take to the surf and the sea. On a recent visit up the coast to Malibu we got to the Malibu Pier early enough to see a fishing charter preparing to depart from the pier’s end. This great historic pier attracts surfers (a famous 3-point break) and fishermen and, of course, anyone loving beach culture. We like it mostly for the views, the air and the food. For a quick stop we visit the Malibu Farm Pier Café for a quality snack or stand up/walk around lunch. For something a bit more formal there is the Malibu Farm Restaurant at the foot of the long wooden structure. All foods here are organic and locally sourced according to Helene, the owner, and we can state that we are always very happy for an opportunity to eat at the Malibu Pier whenever we get a chance, sightseeing with our adventure seeking guests or just playing and hanging out by the sea with our own family and friends.
Kids on a Private Tour of Los Angeles
If you want your children to experience the joys of fishing in a controlled, safe and dry environment, let’s head up over the Santa Monica Mountains on your Los Angeles tour and stop for lunch at Troutdale in Agoura. This is a fun luxury Los Angeles tour adventure for young ones. The regularly stocked pond is full of fresh farm raised trout and everything is provided for catching and cooking up a fine fish lunch. The environment is peaceful and perfect for picnics. After lunch we can explore the elegant celebrity homes in and around Calabasas while we are up here and drive past the Peter Strauss Ranch Park and the Paramount Ranch as well as the Motion Picture and Television Country Home and Hospital. Most of our private Los Angeles tour guests, even those who live near Los Angeles, are completely unaware of the existence of Lake Malibou in this same part of the mountains where you could do some real fishing.
A Fun Private Los Angeles Tour to the Santa Monica Pier
While many of our guests stay at seaside hotels in Santa Monica, others are happier spending their nights in Hollywood and Beverly Hills, maybe even downtown Los Angeles. Wherever our custom tour guests are staying the Santa Monica Pier is a visitor destination not to be overlooked. Even if we arrive early (or late) in the day and are met by the marine layer (coastal fog bank) there is no June Gloom on our tours. The weather is still warm and the fun lies ahead. A historic carousel awaits at the head of the pier and there are thrill rides and carnival attractions between the carousel calliope and the surf sounds at the end of the pier. Oh, and food. Circus and fast food, yes, but also a couple of restaurants. Fine dining, well, not really, but fine fun dining. The first concrete pier on the west coast has been attracting crowds since 1909. In 1925 it attracted Olaf Olsen, a retired sailor, who opened a recreational fishing business that kept commercial fishing away and who donated part of his profits to local needy families. A Santa Monica hero he was the model for Elzie Seger’s comic strip character we all know as Popeye! While not a good place for your skateboard, the Santa Monica Pier is probably the best fishing spot on the bay. Bring your reel and creel and let out a line.
