    Sport Yacht 38’ Regal sport yacht 🛥 Seattle

    Oh captain, my captain! We, a band of land-lubbers, found James to be professional, knowledgeable, laid-back and accommodating. Salt of the earth (and the sea!). Looking forward to the next time we can shove off and sail the high seas with our trusty Captain. Ahoy!

    36' Catalina Sailing Yacht in Lake Union, Seattle

    The experience could not have been better in anyway. They were considerate and beyond accommodating, especially since we brought my 6 month old nephew. Definitely plan on booking with them again in the future.

    Seattle Scenery and Lake Cruising on 37' Tiara Motor Yacht

    Kirk was flexible and was a great fun captain! We did some sightseeing and a lot of relaxing while he took the lead on the boat. The bluetooth speaker system was key. It was great!
