    Bayliner 32' So Cal Coast, Harbor Cruise, Emerald Bay, Catalina Island! Captain, Fuel & Cleaning Included.

    I highly recommend you book with Alan. He was amazing. Sent us a video to help find the docking location perfectly. He was the best Captain me and my friends could ask for. Took us out to the sea right before sunset and allowed us to jump in the ocean, pop champagne bottles for my birthday. This experience was by far one of my best birthdays I've had ever. If you're looking to have a good time with friends Alan is the Captain you want on your boat.

    Captain Ed was SO incredible! He made our family’s first boating experience out of this world! He was super knowledgeable, comforting, understanding, and engaging. He showed us the sites, taught me and my kids the ins and outs of sailing, and was so hospitable. If we were stranded at sea, we would TOTALLY want captain Ed there. Thank god we weren’t, wanna know why?? BECAUSE CAPTAIN ED IS THE BEST! Woot

    It was everything we imagined and more. I’ve never seen so many whales in my life! Our fresh catch was made into ceviche, pretty tasty I may add. The boat was super spacious, laid out nicely for comfort and fun. We will definitely book with them next time we are in Punta Mita. Thanks again!

    Look no further -- book Ed for your next trip! Not only is his boat wonderful (great, spacious front area to enjoy the breeze and sea, lovely interior space for a break from the sun), but he is also so sweet and accommodating. Ed communicated with us from start to finish about everything we needed to know -- from how to get to the dock to restaurant/neighborhood recommendations for a bite afterwards. Also provided us with ice and different water toys/floats for us to lounge in the water with. 10000/10 experience, great man!!
