About Amos Zolna

Let us introduce ourselves. We are Amos & Shari and we moved from New York City to San Diego in 1995. We have a beautiful teenage daughter, Annabelle, off to UC Santa Cruz, and a beautiful German Shepherd named Bella who we foster for a rescue.

Amos and I instantly fell in love with everything this magnificent city has to offer. From the sea, to the mountains, to the desert wildflower explosions, this is so much more than a city. Then to discover the Gas Lamp District, Little Italy, and a multitude of cultural venues and events, we knew this was the place for us.

It was easy to acclimate to San Diego’s great year round climate, and were especially drawn to it’s unique coastal way of life. After many years of owning vacation rental properties on the island of Maui, Amos came up with the idea to combine our knowledge of the vacation rental business with our passion for boating. And so we did. In March of 2007 we opened Ohana Pacific, LLC. A unique San Diego business offering overnight accommodations aboard a yacht. Soon after, we became United States Coast Guard OUPV Captains, licensed to 100 tons on coastal waters.

This yachting business has evolved into a full service Yacht Company that now offers our customers a fantastic fleet of privately owned yachts for overnight accommodations and charter. We are now the go-to company in San Diego for private charters, being recommended by the San Diego Concierge Association and a network of businesses all over Southern California.

Thank you for checking out one of the most unique highly rated Vacation Rental properties in San Diego!

Why Amos Zolna chose Midway District

You're looking for something unique and awesome. Why choose the same old thing? Stay on a yacht in a prime location on the water, not simply looking at the water. Surround yourself with boats, water, sea life, and gorgeous sunsets. And, we're just minutes from the San Diego Airport and down town.

What makes this yacht unique

What makes the Ohana Pacific so unique is that you can charter our yacht for a professional and unforgettable San Diego Bay cruise and stay aboard as no other high end vacation rental accommodation can provide. Typically, you'll find either one or the other. We do it all!!

We specialize in personalized cruises for up to 12 guests and offer you the luxury of a live-a-board yacht for 4 overnight guests.

J.J. and I enjoyed every minute of our yachting experience! You and your family are what we call in Texas "Good People", which means genuine and honest. From driving the boat, to watching the sun drop into the Pacific, it was all incredible. We will definitely see you guys again.

A better way to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week on the Ohana Pacific. The location was perfect and we had everything we needed. The owners were immediately available both before and during our stay to answer any questions. It was a wonderful way to relax and enjoy San Diego and felt much more secluded and peaceful than staying in a hotel.

Go for something different

  • 5 of 5

Amos is prompt, professional, and accessible from the booking process to check out. The yacht itself is nicely appointed and an unique experience for a vacation base. The scenery, privacy and tranquility at the marina and on the yacht is a plus in such a big metropolitan area. The yacht is stationed at such a great location that it is easy to access all of San Diego's sites and experiences.

Hotel??? NOT - Get a Yacht!

  • 5 of 5

If you had a thought about staying at the Hilton or Sheridan, DON'T! From the second I met Amos and stepped on this yacht, I didn't want to leave. In town for a conference, it was a great escape from the hustle and bustle of the hotel, yet close enough to walk to my meetings and get the fresh sea air breeze! I loved the comfort of my own space and the ease of booking, and being pampered! I will never stay in a San Diego hotel again! Thanks Amos!

Very unique alternative to a hotel

  • 5 of 5

My son and I were in Southern California looking at colleges he's applying to and wanted to try something different from the standard hotel stay. This was the perfect alternative and so much more enjoyable. We each had our own bedroom and bathroom and the boat is cozy, but you still have plenty of space and we never felt cramped. There is something incredibly relaxing about waking up in the marina - the lapping of the water against the boat, the slight squeaking of the ropes as the boat moves, it was all very enjoyable. Some good restaurants on the island, right across the street from the airport, and easy access to plenty of great spots downtown. Neither of us had ever spent any time on a yacht, and Amos was fantastic in explaining everything to us and made the experience easy and fun. Will never stay in a hotel room in San Diego again!

Unique, affordable accomdation from an honest owner

  • 5 of 5

I was is in San Diego for a conference and searched VRBO and found the yacht. How can you ever stay in a hotel when there are places like this. Amos was super helpful and accommodating in ever way. An easy Uber ride to downtown, several nice restaurants nearby and the piece of being on the water. If I'm ever in San Diego again, I'll be back.

Relaxing and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Amos was super accommodating and quick to respond--he let us stay until 4pm the day we checked out without charging us. We stayed on his stationary newly renovated harbor houseboat and had a fabulous time. It was clean and beautifully appointed--even pretty mosaic tiles were placed in the kitchen and bathroom. The two bathrooms and master suite were comfortable and we easily hosted guests for cocktails. We spent two beautiful days in the harbor for the same price as a hotel room with taxes/parking/and fees. I totally recommend dealing with Zolna Yacht Charters. The entire experience was unique and first class.
