    AMAZING 60' YACHT FOR CHARTER + JET SKI AND MORE !!!!!!!!!!!!

    Huge thank you to Mike and his crew for helping us throw the best bachelorette cruise. The boat was beautiful with an awesome area in the back to chill and the massive bow. The captain not only drove but also played the best music so we didn’t need to worry about that! We went right into an area where you could see the space needle which was super cool. Stopped a few times and went swimming! Overall we had the BEST time. Highly recommend!

    Custom Yacht Charter in Kirkland

    Greg and his crew provided an absolutely incredible day at Seafair for our group. From the get go his communication was great. Months before our excursion Greg contacted me to check out his boat. It is so cool! It is huge and has lots of available lounge space. The entire experience surpassed my expectations. The customer service was truly outstanding. They took care of everything and even helped us load in and out, set up, pass out drinks and food and clean up. Thank you Greg, Don and Paul for a fabulous day we will never forget!
