GetMyBoat customer reviews for boat rentals in Marina del Rey.
Jared was an amazing captain. We sailed across the channel to Catalina for 2 nights. It was the perfect experience - a combination of sea romance and reality. I wanted to learn as much as I could about sailing and Jared was happy to teach hands on. He's a very nice guy as well. He gave us our space at anchor during the day. Living on a boat can get tight at times. The harbor at Catalina was beautiful and I got plenty of opportunities to swim. It was a great experience. I hope I have the opportunity again.
Mark was The BEST ! Hands down the best boat ride I been on , it was my birthday & I was running late but he still worked with me & made the best of it I had so much FUN . Really enjoyed myself on his boat . It was clean in Spacious for me and my girls will most definitely recommend to Anyone & will be booking again. Thank you Mark we had a ball.
Fabulous day touring the Santa Monica Bay with Captain Mark! Five star service - from entertaining conversation, perfect sailing weather and an extra tour around the marina to see the boat slips and marina wildlife. An unexpected treat included being environmentally sensitive and allowing the group to use the net to retrieve some party balloons that had been floating along the bay. We had an excellent day with Captain Mark and would absolutely recommend this trip with a wonderful captain!
Mark was an amazing Captain. He was very informative and a great communicator from our initial inquiry, to booking, and all through out the actual sail. Weather was gloomy but that did not stop us from having a beautiful and relaxing sail. I highly recommend.
If you're thinking about renting this boat... DO IT! My friends and I had experience we wont soon forget! Logan and Miles were a great time. They were so kind and fun to hang around with! The boat was clean and as advertised. We all had such a fabulous time! Would love to do this again!
Mark was wonderful! Right from the booking I felt taken care of. He reached out within 24hrs with all the information we would need, he was very responsive to questions about guests and items permitted on the boat, and when we arrived he was friendly and attentive. Mark's boat was clean and had lots of amenities (like a fridge to keep drinks cool or extra sunglasses and sunscreen). The ride itself was so fun and Mark made us feel safe the entire time. I would highly recommend him if you're looking for a relaxing time on the ocean with family or friends.
