GetMyBoat customer reviews for boat rentals in Marina del Rey.
Mark was able to squeeze us in last minute after another cancellation and I was so grateful. The boat was clean and had everything we needed. We had 6 people and plenty of space to move around everywhere. Mark communicated fairly quickly and was able to help answer any questions I had. He stayed out later so we could catch the sun set and made everyone feel welcomed. It was a great birthday so I highly recommend booking with Mark!
We had a wonderful time with Mark, he is very personable and has great stories. Communication was AMAZING. I booked the trip for a bachelorette party, and he checked in with me daily in the few days prior to our sail to give updates on the weather and to see if I had any questions. His boat is beautiful, highly recommend!
All the staff, including the captain, the assistant, and the chef are very pleasant and ready to help you at any time. The boat is very beautiful and well tidied up, which makes it very nice and comfortable and to be in it. Overall everything was great, and I really enjoyed the trip.
Mark was very easy going- It felt like he was part of the gang! If you want to learn a bit about sailing he is very willing to show you, or if you just want to sit back and enjoy the ride he will mold to what you want!!
I would recommend this to anyone that is looking for a great time privately in the water. The captain Jim made us feel comfortable the entire trip. Although there were people on board who get motion sickness, this ride was so great they didn’t feel a thing!
We had an amazing experience with Jared for our sunset sail. The boat was clean and perfect for the 4 of us, but could comfortably fit more. Our favorite part was hanging out on the front of the boat. Jared was very proactive and knew exactly the type of experience we wanted and what we needed when we were on the boat. Wouldn’t hesitate to book with Jared if looking to do a sailing trip.
