GetMyBoat customer reviews for boat rentals in Marina del Rey.
Beautiful clean spacious boat. Captain Gustavo was very understanding versatile with the price and great communicator. However, the captain he suggested was quite rude towards the end of the trip. Greatly appriciated the safe trip but Captain Stephen should learn some manners.
To start, I booked this for my 21st birthday and due to the festivities from the night before I was running a bit late. Totally my fault, but Mark was BEYOND accommodating and did not miss a beat. The boat was pristine, and perfect for myself a few friends. Mark was a perfect host, and made the experience so much fun. Definitely my best birthday to date, and even my guests agreed it was the best day of the summer. Thanks again!
What a beautiful experience we had today with Rayan !!! . The boat is in a very nice condition. The captain is a wonderful man with hospitality skills and great manners. I mean if someone is looking for the best option. Book this boat for sure. U won’t regret.
Spending the day on Mark’s sailboat with 5 of my friends was easily one of my favorite birthday celebrations to date! He’s super kind, knowledgeable, and easy going. He’ll let you get involved, and teach you about sailing if you’re interested. We could play music on his Bluetooth speaker and enjoy the snacks and drinks we brought. 100% would recommend!
The trip was amazing! The owner, Izzy, was such a great communicator in the days leading up to the trip and after. The boat was in such a great condition and was big enough to comfortably fit all 12 of us. It was such a blast enjoying the sea sites from the front of the boat to getting some shade inside the vessel. Definitely would 10 out of 10 recommend booking with Izzy.
Mark is an excellent captain. His boat is beautiful, well maintained and just as described. He could not have been more accommodating and welcome to myself and my friends. We had a wonderful time and will 100% be booking with Mark again!!! Many thanks!! Kelly & Justin :)
