GetMyBoat customer reviews for boat rentals in Marina del Rey.
5 out of 5 stars. We had a great booking with Ryan for my boyfriend’s birthday. We brought food and drinks and cruised the coast for three hours listening to a playlist I had made. Ryan was very accommodating and wanted to make sure we were comfortable the entire trip. He answered questions and explained things relating to his yacht, other boats we saw, the coast, and wildlife. We were even able to see dolphins (for the first time) and sea lions. I would recommend booking three hours or more. Although two hours is the minimum time required to book, I don’t think that’s enough time to get the full experience. We will definitely plan another trip.
Izzy was welcoming, open line of communication, hospitable, and the vessel was clean. We were a party of 11 and everyone had a great experience.
Super fun spontaneous trip. Booked last minute. Ryan made it all easy. Would definitely book again!
Had the best time ever! Boat is exactly as depicted. And Gustavo was very attentive and responsive. Captain Andrew was the best! Def will book with them both again!
Ryan is the best!!! He found a school of dolphins and led us to them, and was an amazing and thoughtful captain for my mom and I!! Can’t recommend him enough, you’d be lucky to get him. !!!!
Really amazing experience. The boat, “Ray” is powerful and elegant. Super smooth and comfortable. The captain, Ryan, is an absolute legend. He felt like one of our best friends within 5 minutes. The canadian accent will make you feel instantly at ease and ready for a beer. Couldnt recommend it anymore. 6 out of 5 stars
