Lunch, brunch, and more on a cruise of Morro Bay harbor

—What better way to enjoy the beauty of Morro Bay than from the deck of the Chablis? Get up close and personal with the wild inhabitants of the bay, watch sea lions, harbor seals, egrets, white pelicans, and of course those adorable furry sea otters.

Chablis Cruises offers public cruises and hosts private charters for all occasions. Lunch is offered daily including weekends from noon to 2 p.m. for $38. A special brunch cruise is offered on the second Sunday of every month from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

“You get to experience the beauty of Morro Bay from the water and enjoy fresh made-from-scratch food and hand-crafted drinks,” says owner Annie Clapp. Along with farm-fresh and locally sourced food, the Chablis features a full bar with craft beer, local wine, and mixed drinks. The signature Bloody Mary comes with locally sourced and pickled vegetables.

Planning a wedding? The Chablis is the place for an exceptional and memorable event. All the details of the special day are taken care of by the Chablis planning crew. A three-hour cruise, cake, catering, officiant, photographer, DJ, black linens, and flowers, all included. You have three complete wedding packages to choose from.

The elegantly decorated interior with its panoramic windows and rooftop deck is the perfect setting for parties, business meetings, bridal showers, weddings, receptions, and events of all kinds. Check out the website for help planning your event.

The bottom level of the boat has a spacious dining room and the open-air upper level has a viewing deck, perfect for sightseeing or an al fresco dining experience.

A family business delivering family fun

Chablis Cruises is a woman and veteran-owned family business. Annie, her mother Patti, and sister Shasta operate the vessel, including captaining, catering, reservations, and other services.

Chablis is a unique, 50-foot, two-story flat-bottom riverboat that sails guests along the calm waters of the harbor. In 2007 Big Rock Charters LLC purchased the Chablis and sailed her from San Francisco to Morro Bay. A cruise on the Chablis is perfect for the whole family, a wonderful way to experience the natural beauty of the area and create lasting memories.

Chablis Cruises aims to please.

Chablis Cruises is located at 1204 Embarcadero, in Morro Bay between the North and South T-pier, across from the Maritime Museum. To make reservations for a cruise, lunch, brunch, a private charter, or for more information visit, or call (805) 772-2128.
