    Bayliner 32' So Cal Coast, Harbor Cruise, Emerald Bay, Catalina Island! Captain, Fuel & Cleaning Included.

    I originally did not want to rent a vote from a company that I was not familiar but from the first time I talked to Alan he made me feel comfortable. I told him what the special occasion was and what I wanted to do and he gave me ideas. I was worried about the weather since a day before we had some rain but he kept me updating about the weather and told me it would clear even though it looked cloudy. He always stayed positive and the clouds really cleared. He really made the best out of our trip. Excellent service. Alan really made my wife’s bday celebration special. Thank you Alan

    We had a fantastic time on Abdallah's boat. I could not recommend it highly enough. We rented the boat out for a birthday and sailed around the islands then stopped off for a swim. The trip was better than we all expected, we all had a great trip. Abdallah was a fantastic host!
