The mere thought of Los Angeles evokes idyllic images of palm tree lined streets, movie stars, and white-sand beaches. The sprawling metropolis has dozens of neighborhoods and worlds inside of its county lines. While one trip to Los Angeles is never enough, one of the best ways to see the city, and often most overlooked, is via boat.
We live just two blocks from the ocean in the seaside town of Hermosa Beach where the ocean is a part of our everyday lives. While Los Angeles is a city on the Sea, most – including LA locals, have never seen it from one of its most important elements – The Pacific Ocean. While we’ve lived in Los Angeles for 10 years (gasp), we decided to rent a boat and see the city from an entirely new lens.
