    ⚓️Bayliner 32ft Enjoy the So Cal Coast, Harbor Cruise, Emerald Bay, Catalina Island! Captain, Fuel & Cleaning Included.

    We had such a fabulous time with Alan on our boat trip to Catalina. He was very attentive to all of our needs and made my sister’s bachelorette party better than what we even expected. He makes you feel welcome and taken care of the whole day and the music on the boat created a great atmosphere. Highly recommend for anyone looking for an unforgettable time.

    Kahar was an amazing captain & host! He was very accommodating with the timings and showed us some great spots on the lake. We requested for a sunset and city skyline view for a beautiful proposal and he made it happen. Thank you so much Kahar, we had a great time on your boat!
