    We can’t recommend Reed (and captain Robert!) enough. The boat was beautiful, clean, and exactly as described. Their service is 5 stars — there was champagne on ice waiting for us and they were so accompanied about everything. Robert’s extensive knowledge and random facts about the area were hilarious and a fun addition to our trip. They spotted dolphins and took us over to them where they proceeded to keep up with us for about an hour; an unforgettable experience. Thank you Reed and Robert! We will be back soon

    Jessie and Mike were gracious hosts and capable mariners! Had a lovely day on the water to Catalina, with a brief stop in crowded Avalon and then a tour of the private island coves. Saw whales and dolphins and Mike took his time to find and re-find the wildlife. Highly recommend!

    Would highly recommend this experience. Every member of our family was extremely pleased with how our trip went. The captain and co-captain helped us unload our belongings and were extremely knowledgeable. They showed us a great time. The boat was beautiful, clean, and met all of our needs. We saw dolphins and were told the right time and best place to view them. It was a wonderful birthday.
