Experience a romantic night on the water with beautiful views of the wharf and Capitola. Dove IV is a cozy 36 foot sailboat at anchor a short dinghy ride or water taxi from Capitola pier.
This is as much (if not more so) an experience as it is a place to rock to sleep. It is not for the feint of heart, but for the bold and adventurous.
PLEASE NOTE!! This sailboat is on a mooring, not a slip in the harbor. As such one cannot simply walk here.
Dove IV is a 2002 36' steel hulled sloop. She has a 'spacious' (for a 36' boat) v-berth that accommodates a couple, and two couches that can sleep one person each. Her interior is laminated pine with solid oak flooring. She is bright and roomy inside with a sink, stove, oven, and small refrigerator ice box. Please note there is no hot water, although you can heat water on the stove.
From her pilot house you can view your surroundings while being protected from the elements, and the deck has space to lounge about.
Our neighbors include several sea otters, harbor seals, and sea lions. Occasionally dolphins and whales will come visit. Seagulls, cormorants, and pelicans are all to be found nearby.
Capitola is a just down the point from Pleasure Point, and just up from the State Park. The area abounds with great surf, dining, shopping, and outdoor recreation.
