    A perfect Captain for our young family! Captain Jared has such a nice demeanor. He was very accommodating with our family of four. He even let our kids steer! The boat was very clean and it really appears Captain Jared takes pride in his boat. Jared was very knowledgeable about sailing and knew a lot about the surrounding area. It was our first time out on the ocean and Captain Jared really made it fun and relaxing. we never felt rushed and Captain Jared was very focused on our enjoyment and it didn’t feel like he was watching the clock. I highly recommend! Looking forward to booking an all day voyage next. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

    I can’t say enough about how great this experience was. It was incredible and Izzy and crew made us feel so welcome, and really made our friend’s Birthday a special one. Izzy listened to what we wanted and made great recommendations as to Where to go and what would be most fun for our group. Communication before and during the trip was top notch and also made sure we felt safe and covered all safety angles with our entire group. I would strongly recommend Izzy and his beautiful boat to anyone looking to have an amazing time out on the water. If you’re celebrating or just looking to have a great time, book w/ Izzy.

    Incredible trip! The captain customized everything to exactly what we wanted! It was a bit windy so after a quick trip out on the ocean we came back to the Marina for a more comfortable experience. He played great music and had entertaining stories. Would love to do it again!

    Matthew has well over a decade of experience, hosting many sailings weekly. We instantly knew he was a pro and felt completely safe and that he was in total control. But we also felt he was just part of our group. The timing and itinerary were spot on. His hospitality, appetizers, and wine were all top notch! We will for sure be back and highly recommend. Thanks for a great time!!!
