    So unbelievably glad we went with this boat/ captain. The boat was beautiful and Athan and his first mate went above and beyond to make sure we had the best experience possible. Everyone had such a blast and this trip was perfect!!! Would give them more stars if I could!!!

  2. MM

    Athan was very professional, communicative, and patient. I messaged Athan many times with questions as this was an event for my team and he was very quick to respond every time. I appreciated how kind and helpful his team was to make sure we had a successful outing. The boat was very clean and luxurious. Definitely would recommend booking with Athan and looking forward to future bookings for myself.

  3. Tara

    We had an incredible time. The yacht is simply gorgeous. It had plenty of space to sit everywhere! Our captain took us around to see all the famous and beautiful sights in San Diego. The owner a s captain of the boat we’re both super cool, generous, and communicated well. We cannot wait to work with them again in the future.

I'm a laid back, relaxed native of San Diego and licensed United States Coast Guard captain with my 100 ton certification as well as sailing endorsement. I've captained boats all over the world since 2015. Having lived in San Diego my whole life I'm a great resource and very knowledgeable about San Diego and all the sights and history around San Diego bay. I'm also a licensed yacht broker, so I'm also a good resource if you have any questions about boats or if you are looking to become a boat owner. The ocean and the outdoors are my happy place. I like to be active and especially love sailing and working on my sailboat, surfing and fishing. I'm very respectful and was raised to always put family first and follow the golden rule. It's my primary focus to always be sure my guests and friends have a world-class experience and memories that last a lifetime...something I expect when I travel.
