    John was super professional, extremely easy to communicate with, conscious of our safety and such a great vibe. He made our friend’s birthday so special and we cannot wait to book with him again. From the city tour to time in the playpen and everything in between, it was a perfect and awesome experience. Thank you so much, John!!

    John was a wonderful host for us all and we had an amazing time on his boat. John was very welcoming and his boat was beautiful. It was exactly as the pictures and description were. We will definitely be booking with John again in the future!

    Capt John was wonderful! Flexible with some weather worries, great communicator, and a chill captain. Boat was gorgeous and comfy. We had fun swimming, playing on the lily pad, and sunbathing on the prow. Can’t wait to go out with him again!!

    Great afternoon out on the water with John! He was very professional and friendly, the boat was clean and as advertised and he was very accommodating to any requests. I would not hesitate to book SeaVibes again! Thank you!

    John was really helpful and communicative when we had to reschedule because of waves. His boat was exactly what our group was looking for. We were able to hang out and get a good view of the city during sunset. Highly recommend and would sail with him again.
