    Mark was a dream and his boat was absolutely spectacular! He was attentive and quick to respond. We couldn’t ask for a better captain. My party was running late, and I was freaking out a bit. I requested to move our reservation by an hour (pretty last minute), and he had NO problem! He was so calm about everything and reassured me that everything was going to be OK. Our experience with Mark and his boat literally made my 30th birthday celebration one for the books! If and when we ever travel back to this area, I am FOR SURE booking with Mark!

    Jared is the best captain and host! It was an amazing experience. I highly recommend his boat. We had a small group of 4 and spent a full day out at sea and it was well worth it. We saw so many dolphins and seals along the way. He also has a paddle board and kayak, so he brought us to a fun little spot where we could go out to paddle board or sunbathe and relax. We'll definitely be back for another boat adventure with Jared!

    I can't say enough about the experience. Jared is fun and super easy. He's a very go with the flow captain! Knew the area well, so took us to safe places to anchor, swim and sail. The experience was special and unforgettable. I'd sail with Jared anytime! Each one of my guests had nothing but positive things to say about him and our experience! Can't wait until our next trip!

    Mark was an amazing host, and the boat is spacious and beautiful. Mark was very friendly, knowledgeable, accommodating and all-around just pleasant to be around. He even taught me some basics of sailing. Also, the boat was sanitized and clean. Thanks Mark! Looking forward to doing it again sometime soon.
