Before the pandemic, HGTV star Tarek El Moussa and Selling Sunset's Heather Rae Young were frequent travelers. We're still jealous of their romantic Thanksgiving getaway to Europe. Though life has put many things on hold, it hasn't stopped this adventurous couple from making memories that will last a lifetime.
The pair just spent the entire weekend on their boat in Newport Beach, Calif., where they recently relocated to a new home situated only one block from the beautiful Orange County coastline. After a night spent drinking wine, ordering food, and watching movies, the pair drove to Catalina Island, which is about an hour's trip on a ferry.
"Special days like these," Heather wrote in one of several Instagram posts documenting the weekend. "We are having the best quality time weekend together."
For the first time this year we made it out to Catalina Island! . We decided to spend the entire weekend on our boat in Newport, it’s something we haven’t done! . Last night we watched movies and we headed to the island around noon today! . It was a gorgeous ride and we saw a bunch of dolphins! We then parked in front of Descanso beach and had a great lunch! Check out my story it was really cool! . To me...it’s starting to feel like summer. How about you!?🤷♂️ .

Heather was hoping to be able to see dolphins during the journey, and sure enough her wish came true. Tarek captured the moment on video, in which Heather can be heard saying: "There are so many!"
After the "gorgeous" ride, the pair parked in front of Descanso Beach, where they enjoyed lunch. "To me ... it’s starting to feel like summer. How about you!?" Tarek asked.
As it turns out, the couple has a mutual affinity for yachts. Tarek honked his boat horn at Heather to get her attention the day they first met. At the time, she already had a boyfriend and turned him down.
Tarek was first publicly linked to Heather when photographs of their cuddling and kissing session on a luxury boat at the Portofino Hotel & Marina in Redondo Beach, Calif., were published by TMZ on July 29, 2019. Within the next two weeks, the pair made their relationship Instagram official, and El Moussa even introduced Young to his two kids.
"The first time I saw her smile she 'did that thing to my tummy,' and I knew right away I needed to get to know her," Tarek wrote of Heather as he publicly used the word "girlfriend" for the first time.
