Great day on the ocean. We wanted a relaxing trip for our family. Nothing to intense for our small kids, who had never been on the ocean. We toured the marina, saw some sea lions, did paddle board and kayak and listened to great music. Captain Stephen was an easy conversationalist and is great with kids too!
We had such an amazing time. We went on a quick 2 hour trip as we were first timers and wanted to "test the waters". Capitan set us immediately at ease and was super knowledgeable, kind, and personable. We will definitely be back for another cruise hoping sooner than later! :)
This may have been the best boating experience in a very long time. Linda and her partner were so friendly, punctual, safe, knowledgeable, and generally professional. What more can you ask for? Actually two more: 1) they are gods at finding and riding w the dolphins- found at least 4 groups that swam w us 2) there’s something about eating freshly cooked burgers (beef and veggie) out in the open ocean in plentiful sunshine and breeze. Boat was in fantastic shape... even the towels they provided were of high quality and style. Can’t recommend them enough and I’m already thinking about my next trip w them.
An amazing day at the ocean with Scott. My family (2 adults 2 kids) were totally taken care by Scott starting from his inquiry as to the age of our kids for providing the appropriate life vests to asking what interests us to plan out our adventure, answering every question we had and pretty much planning an incredible day on the boat. Scott also proved to be very personable and knowledgeable. We had a great time and can’t wait to do it again.
Mark was a dream and his boat was absolutely spectacular! He was attentive and quick to respond. We couldn’t ask for a better captain. My party was running late, and I was freaking out a bit. I requested to move our reservation by an hour (pretty last minute), and he had NO problem! He was so calm about everything and reassured me that everything was going to be OK. Our experience with Mark and his boat literally made my 30th birthday celebration one for the books! If and when we ever travel back to this area, I am FOR SURE booking with Mark!
I book this trip as an anniversary gift for my husband. Is.was an exquisite experience. Mark is so kind, and such a cool captain. He went above and beyond making us feel so welcome. We had a great time! We even sail ourselves :)
