    Beneteau 40 Cruising Sloop in Marina del Rey with Captain Mark

    Mark was FANTASTIC! My wife and parents went out with him for a sunset cruise and it was an incredible experience and fun time. Mark was timely and clear in his communication leading up to our outing on where to go and what to expect. During our outing, Mark shared some great stories with our family, pointed out key landmarks, and allowed us to explore all of the Marina up to Santa Monica. We saw a great sunset, dolphins and had an amazing time. If you are looking for a great time on an awesome boat with an incredible captain, I strongly recommend booking with Mark.

    Beneteau 40 Cruising Sloop in Marina del Rey with Captain Mark

    Had an amazing first time sailing experience with Captain Mark. Mark was professional, friendly, and overall great! I booked a sail trip mid June from 12 pm to 2 pm. The timing and weather were perfect. I especially appreciated how Mark was prepared in having crackers and motion sickness oil for when I got seasick. He saved me from an embarrassing moment. I highly recommend Captain Mark anytime for time your sailing trips.

    We had such a great time and wonderful experience as our first time sailing. Mark is very nice and entertaining. He has such a good sense of humor and made our sail even more fun. His boat is spectacular. We highly recommend and would love to book again with him in the future.

    New Mastercraft Nxt 22 Wakeboat with Professional Captain in Austin

    Jake was a fantastic Captain, was super patient teaching my crew wake surfing and was so professional and kind. Cleaned up the whole boat for us. The boat was in pristine condition and the wave for wake surfing was perfect and massive! One of the best waves I've surfed on Lake Austin. Derrick was wonderful to work with and was so on point with communication. Definitely will book again.

    Beneteau 40 Cruising Sloop in Marina del Rey with Captain Mark

    Mark was awesome from the moment we made our reservation. He was so easy to communicate with. The sailboat was beautiful and Mark had it very accommodating. There are two working bathrooms, an area to change clothes, a fridge to store our food and drinks, a blue tooth speaker to play music on, blankets for if we got cold (we took a late afternoon ride)....he has thought of everything! One person in our group began to feel sea sick (even after taking Dramamine) and Mark was so kind about it. He suggested we go back into the Harbor, where the water is calmer, and we rode around looking at the beautiful boats and seals on the docks. He made sure we still had a great time! We could not have asked for a better experience, or captain!
