    Mark was FANTASTIC! My wife and parents went out with him for a sunset cruise and it was an incredible experience and fun time. Mark was timely and clear in his communication leading up to our outing on where to go and what to expect. During our outing, Mark shared some great stories with our family, pointed out key landmarks, and allowed us to explore all of the Marina up to Santa Monica. We saw a great sunset, dolphins and had an amazing time. If you are looking for a great time on an awesome boat with an incredible captain, I strongly recommend booking with Mark.

    Greatest experience!! Lee was the best! His communication could not have been better- he answered all of my questions/ concerns in a timely manner and was always available for me. If I couldn’t get ahold of the captain he made sure to call him himself and then would check in with me to make sure I did get ahold of him. Our captain (Alex) was the best also! So kind and made our trip better than we could have asked for. We are SO glad this worked out and recommend this to everyone!! This is one trip/experience we will never forget!

    Had an amazing first time sailing experience with Captain Mark. Mark was professional, friendly, and overall great! I booked a sail trip mid June from 12 pm to 2 pm. The timing and weather were perfect. I especially appreciated how Mark was prepared in having crackers and motion sickness oil for when I got seasick. He saved me from an embarrassing moment. I highly recommend Captain Mark anytime for time your sailing trips.
