    Carver 60 Motor Yacht Charter for 12 People in Marina del Rey, California

    We honestly could not have asked for a better experience! The crew was top notch from the moment they arrived and greeted us at the dock. Once we got aboard the yacht, the captain explained the safety protocol and then the bartender started making mimosas! Safety first, but drinks second! Also, throughout the trip the crew was so hospitable and on top of things. There was never a dull moment and I can honestly say this was one of the best experiences I’ve had renting boats:)

    😎 Cruise In Style On Roomy Sailboat ⛵ with Captain Jared

    I love being on the water and was looking for an experience for my family to go sailing. We don’t have a boat but live close to the marina. After posting on Facebook and asking my peers where to rent a boat or charter, I finally found the getmyboat website and Jared’s listing. His listing was a standout and within an hour we had an amazing adventure planned for our first Sunday free in a long time. I consider it an early Mother’s Day present. We brought homemade cookies and drinks and Jared was easy and low key about eating on the boat and playing our Spotify list. We spent most of the cruise at the front deck of the boat rocking and rolling to the soothing waves and tunes. My kids loved it and it was a relaxing and exciting way to bond. On the way back Jared took us through the harbor to see Sea Lions and my girls stood up and danced on the deck. It’s a family memory we’ll never forget. I can’t recommend this experience enough!

    Mark, the boat, and the experience is fantastic. He’s very kind, communication is clear and on point, and the in boat experience is the best we’ve had. It was my father’s dream to be on a sailing boat in the Pacific and Mark made the experience fantastic.

    We were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary and had a great afternoon sailing. Captain Jared has a great way of reading you if its gets a little too rocky he makes trip adjustments that are spot on to keep you comfortable.
