    Such a great experience! The boat was beautiful and fit our whole family. The captain took us by the dolphins and we were sailing 2 feet from the dolphins for like 30 minutes. It was one of the best experiences ever. Could not recommend this boat and crew more, they’re truly awesome.

    All around spectacular cruise! With 6 of our friends, I surprised my boyfriend for his birthday and it was an absolute blast. Communication with Captain Mark over pre-trip info and boat details was a breeze. His enthusiasm and warm conversation was an added bonus to the experience. The sailboat was beautiful, clean, and incredibly cozy inside. We sailed for 2 hours and caught an amazing sunset, HIGHLY recommend that time to sail. Captain Mark is amazing. Can't wait to sail again!

    We had an amazing experience sailing with Mark. From the get go Mark was quick to communicate with me and let me know the best times to set sail so that we could experience a sunset cruise. He sent me a detailed email before we set sail with recommends of what to bring and what to expect and an itinerary of the direction in which we would sail. We took the trip with my family of 4, two adults and two kids and felt the boat was very safe and well equipped. It was nice to also have a bathroom on board! The weather was beautiful and we had a perfect sunset! Mark also took us to see sealions in addition to the pelicans and dolphins that we saw in the distance. It was a fabulous experience and I would totally recommend sailing with Mark and his beautiful ship!
