Captain Reed was born and raised in Newport Beach, where he started his boat chartering business five years ago. What began as a side job to support his daughter Kennedy has now turned into a full-time career and brought him financial stability. His trusted vessel is a high-end powerboat that can accommodate up to 6 guests and it's perfect for small group gatherings, family get-togethers, and celebrations like bachelorette parties and birthday parties. Captain Reed has always found peace in the ocean and believes that it’s his calling to serve the community and show them the beauty that the sea has to offer.
Getmyboat is a platform that Captain Reed has used to reach new customers and seamlessly plan boat rides and water experiences for the past five years. He says that Getmyboat has helped him expand his charter business and allowed him to upgrade to a new boat.
Captain Reed has been acknowledged as a Super Owner on Getmyboat for constantly going above and beyond for his customers and providing the best possible service out on the water. He has even started donating free boat rides to the CASA OC Foundation - a nonprofit organization that advocates for children who have experienced neglect, abuse, and abandonment.
