Charter 55ft Irwin sailboat In Marina del Rey, California. PLEASE READ THE PRICES UNDER "READ FULL DESCRIPTION" BEFORE MAKING AN INQUIRY!
We had the most incredible time and are so appreciative of captain Richard Andrew! The boat had everything we could’ve needed and stopping to swim was a huge highlight! We were lucky enough to be some of the only few who got to enjoy the ocean on 4th of July during a time when the beaches were closed. Definitely booking again!!
I highly recommend this boat and the owners / captain are very welcoming and made our day fun. The boat is clean, well kept and is newer than most of the listings here. We also love the fact that it had an amazing sound system! We will definitely book with you guys again! Thank you!
Mark is amazing. He contacted me with instructions to meet him and even where to park. The boat is absolutely beautiful with plenty of space to relax and bring snacks and drinks if you want. We loved being able to drive the boat a bit and learn about sailing as well as have time to sit and chat and relax. We went for a sunset cruise and would have been a gorgeous view if the clouds weren’t blocking our sun, but the ride itself was so great, it was perfect regardless. Mark is great! Very personable and extremely well versed in boating, flying.. you name it! Hope to join again soon!
My friends and I had an incredible time with Jared. He was able to accommodate my booking (even though the website was inflexible), had sanitation protocols in place, was friendly and accommodating to my groups' needs, and overall provided an amazing and refreshing experience during a time when we all needed it most. He even helped served the drinks we brought and took lovely pictures for us to capture the unique memories. I would definitely book him again for a charter!
Really fun day out on the water with Scott. Big, nice boat with everything you need to enjoy a day out on the water with friends (including a killer sound system). We cruised up to Paradise Cove in Malibu. Weather was perfect and Scott was a great captain - had a lot of great info about the area. Even saw a school of dolphins on the way back!
