Why We Like This Place

When it comes to choosing a place to get married, few conjure up romance quite like a wedding at sea. Whether you set sail under the California sun or beneath a starry night sky, you get to leave the rest of the world behind as you celebrate with the glorious Pacific Ocean as your backdrop.

Their affordable wedding packages offer so much more than just the yacht, food, and beverages. From suggesting innovative invitation ideas (think messages in bottles or custom-designed wedding passports), to weaving your color palette into great fabrics, linens, and florals, to planning the actual wedding-day itinerary, menus, and to-die-for displays, they’ll put together an event with that special touch.

This high level of service is matched by their elegant fleet of five luxurious private yachts. Between them they can easily accommodate an intimate gathering of your closest friends to a party of 300 guests. Vintage romance is a hallmark of the Electra, a 100-foot, all wood classic fantail yacht. At 83 feet, the New Orleans-style paddle wheeler Newport Princess is a charming, Old World Mississippi riverboat with a lot of character. Athena is a modern 110-foot motor yacht decked in marble with a Greek motif. The 125-foot Destiny features an abundance of glass and ultra-modern décor. Electra Cruises’ newest and largest yacht is the 140-foot Eternity, which is ADA-approved and outfitted with an elevator. All of their yachts have multiple levels, a main salon with full bar, baby grand piano, leather couches and spectacular views.

With Electra Cruises, you won’t have to settle for just another event. They’ll customize your big day, make your guests say “Wow!” and do it all at a reasonable price. For an exceptional wedding, reception or commitment ceremony, you can count on these dedicated professionals. Give them a call to arrange a complimentary event consultation and see what they can do for YOU.
