Siren Sailing Charters Is the Way to Enjoy the Water
Cruise in the style you deserve. Siren is a magnificent 54-foot yacht built in 1977, sailing from San Pedro to Catalina Island and all along the Southern California coast.
Siren sleeps six plus crew in three private cabins with two bathrooms and two showers and a fully equipped kitchen.
The experienced and friendly crew will ensure your comfort and safety as you sail along Southern California’s beautiful coastline.
Captain John “Rags” Wolczanski has been a sailor since childhood, with extensive experience sailing local Southern California waters, the Channel Islands, and the Western coast of the United States. His passion for sailing started when he was a young boy sailing with his father.
Captain Rags began his professional career on the water in the U.S. Army, serving in Vietnam as a tugboat captain or “Harbor Craft Operator.” After completing his military service, he continued working on the water as a tug boat captain and has more than 35 years of professional sailing experience, including four years as an operations manager or “Port Captain” for Millennium Maritime. He has studied and applied a broad range of maritime skills acquired over the years from on-the-job training and practical hands-on experience in sailing, navigation, safety-at-sea, etc. Captain Rags currently holds a US Coast Guard 100 ton passenger vessel license with a sailing endorsement. He is current and certified in first aid and lifesaving.
