GetMyBoat customer reviews for boat rentals in Newport Beach.
Our entire experience was amazing for my 25th birthday. Landon was kind and communicative throughout the booking process. In addition, Captain Mike was extremely friendly and accommodating to our requests and made our experience out in the bay pleasurable. He pointed out what was going around us, made sure we were safe and offered suggestions for a better experience. Thank you so much to this crew for a wonderful time!
Mike’s brother Jamal took us out along with an intern Malik. Both were amazing people and took us out to the ocean by giving us an amazing experience whether it was just cruising or going at a good speed. They stopped to show us sea lions, jump in the ocean and took pictures. Jamal is a very cheerful human being who enjoyed along with us with dancing. Really recommend him and mike to everyone. They are wonderful brothers who care and make sure you have an amazing experience. Felt like I have known them for years
I'm at a loss for words at the experience that Trevor and his crew provided for my 40th birthday party! His customer service is top notch! if I could give him 10 stars I would! Im so detailed oriented and ask a million questions and not once did he ever seemed annoyed or frustrated with the amount of questions and emails I sent him. He even gave suggestions and was so accommodating to my wants and needs. I literally can go on and on! His crew was amazing and so fun to party with! Cant wait to dobit again!
A great way to celebrate a birthday! The boat was clean, the trip was amazing and Scott was super helpful throughout it all! Explained how to drive a boat well (considering we didn’t have any experience) and is super fast at responding! Scott wanted nothing but for me and my friends to have fun during the trip. Would definitely go back and recommend to others!
We had a great Mothers Day evening cruise. Captain Elliott, and First Mate Laura were great. Very knowledgeable, and personable. Will definitely be back to do a Catalina trip, or an overnight offshore fishing trip. Thanks again for a great time on the water. Rob Allen
The boat was clean and spacious. Captain Nassar was an excellent host, very friendly and flexible with us on how we wanted to spend our day on the water. He even got us to see a bunch of dolphins swimming along the front of the boat. Amazing experience, highly recommend!
