GetMyBoat customer reviews for boat rentals in Newport Beach.
Nassar remains to be the best. Every time we rent from him I see the character in him. The boat of course is everything promised and in great shape with all safety features. As renters we had an issue of not understanding an operational procedure and Nassar was there to help us throughout and was as friendly as professional as I'd expect form the best. Great boat; unbelievable guy. Rent from him - you won't be disappointed !
It's for real. Nassar is a very friendly and reliable person. The boat was everything promised - plenty of power for the open ocean and roomy enough for an evening bay cruise for 6+. Nassar was there on time, boat is in great shape and Nassar gave an excellent orientation to the boat, instruments, safety and operation. It's a winner.
It was incredible! Could not have been a better experience on the boat with Jessie and Mike. This was for my engagement and they were SO helpful and kept the bubbly flowing for the entire ride. Not to mention we saw some dolphins, sea lions and all around had an incredible experience. Will 100% be using again in the future
