    Jim helped me accommodate a day of sailing request after another trip we booked with a different company got canceled. Jim’s boat was amazing and the crew (Aaron and his wife) were great. They made sure we had a chance to swim, see the sunset, and view the city lights after dark. They even did a cute photo shoot of our group while on board! Highly recommend. 5 stars.

    Everything was as advertised! Our captain, Aaron, was the BEST!! Jim answered every question promptly prior to booking and Aaron called immediately and addressed any other questions we had. The weather was predicted to be bad. Aaron communicated with us regarding the weather throughout the day. He was a great guide and photographer for us!! We will definitely recommend and book again!

    My party and I had a great time chartering this yacht with Jim and Aaron. The boat was very clean and well kept. Aaron was a knowledgeable captain and pointed out various sights during our trip. Would highly recommend to my friends and family. Also a big thank you to Aaron for assisting with my friend’s proposal!

    John is a very communicative, kind and accommodating host and captain. He was very flexible when it came to suggesting & adjusting the itinerary based on the weather and our plans. The boat itself was super clean and comfortable. We had a group of 18 people and it accommodated everyone! I highly recommend his service!
