This was a fantastic experience. Cheryl made the process seamless and I would definitely recommend anyone book with her. It was my first time and she helped with booking a captain and addressing any of my concerns beforehand. My boyfriend and our friends had a wonderful time, and I will definitely be booking with Cheryl again!
Eric was very reliable and made the day wonderful. The sail boat was beautiful and accommodated all our needs. Captain Eric catered the sail to what we wanted making it an unforgettable sailing trip.
Kahar was the most amazing captain! My friends and I went on his boat for my birthday and he was so sweet and accommodating, even changed the date and time for me because the weather was bad initially. The boat was so nice and clean and had everything we needed. Also much bigger than I thought! I will 1000% be booking with him throughout the summer!
Amazing experience! Kahar was an extremely nice and respectful host. He put great effort to show us a good time and to get us amazing views of the sunset. Boat was nice and clean. Definitely recommend.
Our trip on Justine was great, we had an amazing experience. The boat is beautiful - everything was top notch. Mike referred a great chief (Tony) for a fantastic catering experience. Mike's daily price is well worth it. Highly recommend.
My friends and I booked Kahar for a bachelorette party and words can’t describe how amazing the experience was. Kahar was so fun, attentive, and kind. We had such a fantastic time that I’m hoping my friend gets a divorce and marries a second time just so we can visit him again. 10/10 !!
