When you get to LAX, take the Uber to Windward Yacht Center on 13645 Fiji Way, Marina Del Rey, CA 90292. We will be leaving from Marina Del Rey and sail for approximately 5-6.5 hours to Emerald Bay. We will most likely stay at Emerald Bay for about two nights and just enjoy what the island will provide for us. On the last day, we will cruise around part of the island prior to heading back to Marina Del Rey.
