Booking a trip with Jared is smooth sailing from start to finish. We had a beautiful day out on the water to celebrate a graduation. Jared was very responsive prior to our departure and provided extensive notes to help us locate the dock with ease. If you are looking for a fun and relaxing day on the water, you will definitely want to book with Captian Jared.
Mark is such a super skipper and host. Very great communication leading up to the trip. He navigated us through strong winds and choppy waters - truly skilled sailor. Amazing conversations that made this whole experience feel more like you’re just hanging out with good old friends. Plus, he’s a trove of interesting info about the area!
I didn't really know what to expect, but everything was stellar. Jared took care of everything, he clearly has a lot of experience with taking people out. The boat was in great condition. We got some amazing photos and videos, and we had a lot of fun. If I did it again I'd probably book for 4 hours, I was afraid we'd get bored after 3 but we were still having a great time.
Great experience! I was nervous because it was so quick and easy to book, that it felt like it was too good to be true. But it was exactly as advertised, and Jared was friendly, accommodating and an experienced sailor. Can’t wait to sail with him again!
Planned a afternoon cruise for my girlfriends birthday and could not be more happy! The communication as soon as I booked to the detailed email we’re all extremely helpful. Jared was the perfect host/captain. Extremely accommodating, friendly, and most importantly knew when and how often to check in on us. Cannot wait to head over again to book and sail the friendly seas!
Jared is the best! If you're hesitant about booking a boat please do yourself a favor and just book with Jared. Our trip with Jared was amazing. He's such a sweet and friendly host that you and your crew are bound to have an amazing time. Thank you again Jared.
