I had an amazing experience with Captain Joss and 14 friends yesterday! I'm so lucky that we booked this less than a week out and this vessel was available as it is the ONLY vessel that can take 15 people in the area. It is exactly as advertised and is clean, spacious, and comfortable. The bathroom was bigger than an airplane and the Bluetooth speaker system was loud! Captain Joss was extremely communicative before our trip and during. He was happy to take pictures for our group and even learned our special pose! 10/10 5 stars absolutely would recommend and would go back. I can't wait to plan another outing and utilize Captain Joss again! Thank you for an unforgettable experience Captain Joss!
We were blessed with a large pod of dolphins swimming with the boat! It was the most magical moment. Captain Joss slowed down for the dolphins to feel safe while they played, feasted, jumped, and swam alongside us. Even if this didn't happen the boat was a beautiful experience. We brought food and drinks and music for a work party and had a stunning time with perfect summer weather and a gracious captain. Booking process was smooth, questions answered immediately and clearly, and parking info was sent as reminders. It was especially meaningful that Captain Joss shared the same values as my team of sustainability consultants: respect wildlife and be a responsible steward of our ecosystems. I live in Venice and will definitely book again.
What a memorable adventure! Everyone in our party (7 adults and 7 kids) had a great time; seeing dolphins was a particular hit. Captain Joss is so friendly and communicative, and the whole experience was positive and easy. We will definitely rent from Captain Joss again!
For my birthday I recently had an incredible sunset boat cruise experience with this company. The views were breathtaking, the boat was luxurious, and Captain Joss was attentive and friendly. If you're looking for a remarkable way to enjoy a sunset on the ocean and create lasting memories, I wholeheartedly recommend it. You won't be disappointed!
If you’re looking for the best time, book this boat with Captain Joss! Communication was great before the trip and he will make sure you and your friends have so much fun! We celebrated my friends birthdays (total of 12 people) and we brought sushi, champagne, snacks and watched the sunset in the Marina! He’s the best and I will sure have to book with him again during the day to see some seals! Thank you again Captain Joss!
Allow me to introduce myself Captain Joss Martinez, Born amid the vibrant streets of Paris, France, I grew up under the sun-kissed skies of the southern region (Montpellier). My family lineage steeped in seafaring tradition, my two brothers charted their courses as commercial sea captains, and thus I embarked on my own odyssey as a fisherman. With the Mediterranean as my canvas, my nautical voyage spanned an impressive 28 years, a substantial portion of which I dedicated to serving as a first officer on a fishing boat. Two decades etched in the salt and spray, I honed my skills and developed an innate understanding of the sea's rhythm. As the sun dipped below the horizon, I did my time in the Mediterranean. Seeking a new horizon, I set my sights on the United States, a move that transformed Los Angeles into my home since 2008. Transitioning from the travel industry, I adeptly navigated the intricate waters of licensing with the US Coast Guard. Soon, Marina Del Rey became my realm, where I commanded yachts as a captain with unparalleled finesse. The year 2015 marked another milestone as Captain I unfurled the sails of his entrepreneurial spirit, founding a sea charter business that echoes with my passion for the open waters. However, my legacy transcends even these feats. My heart finds resonance in sharing my vast maritime experience, guiding and mentoring new captains as they embark on their own voyages of discovery. A true sea sage, as a Captain I continues to leave an indelible mark on both the waters I treads and the aspiring seafarers I guide.
