    We had such an amazing time on the Duffy celebrating my birthday. There were 7 of us with plenty of space. I was surprised by how much room there was! We brought food food and set it up nicely on the tables. We were given clear direction of where we could explore in the Marina on the duffy. There are bathrooms nearby if you need to doc up and take a quick bathroom break. We had such a beautiful time on the water and will definitely be booking again! Highly recommend if you are looking for a peaceful, fun time on the water. The host was so nice, helpful, and communicative!

    Duffy Electric Boat, Marina Del Rey

    We had such a fun time! The entire process from booking, to pick up and drop off was easy and went smoothly. Instructions for parking and pick up were sent to us the day of, and met all of our expectations. We were able to bring our own snacks and drinks for the ride. Learning to navigate the boat was easy and just took some time to get used to. Otherwise a really safe and fun experience. I would definitely recommend to others.

    Sailing Charter in Marina del Rey

    Captain Mack is the best. He took us all the way down to Paradise cove where we BBQ-ed. Mack gave us a tour on his dingy and taught us a little bit about sailing. It was an amazing day, started of somewhat foggy and ended in sunshine. We saw seals, dolphins, the sunset and the moon coming up. Definitely will book him again!

    😎 Cruise In Style On Roomy Sailboat ⛵

    My group absolutely loved Jared. He was kind and very informative and his boat is absolutely gorgeous. We brought 6 people with us which was the perfect amount, not to crowded but we had more than enough room to wonder. He handles with covid 19 with care and maintains his boat to upmost cleanliness as possible. He neatly placed our alcohol in the inside of the boat and had a disposable bag to discard our cans. Wonderful perk is that he has a restroom! Jared is a phenomenal driver! He saved our lives, another boat almost crashed into us due to their negligence but Jared saved the day by skillfully avoiding the situation. Thank you Jared for being the best captain I’ve ever experienced. You and your boat were the highlight of my best friends birthday and will be remembered as the greatest Golden Birthday ever. I will definitely be coming back in the future! Thank you 💕
