Had an awesome time in the intercostal and disappearing island with my friends! Carlos was very accommodating and available if anything came up during the day. Great boat!
It was pleasure meeting Nathan. I delivered the boat to the water because he had no means of towing it ,which is an additional service I provide. We went over all necessary items and operation of the boat . He is an experienced boater so he caught on quickly. The boat came back as it left, clean and all in tacted. It was a pleasure and thank you for your business. Will definitely rent to Nathan again.
We recently had a fantastic week-long charter of Cariblue with Bob. This was the third time I've chartered a Hunter for a week-long trip, and of the three (the others being and Hunter 33 and Hunter 45), Bob's Cariblue was the best sailor. Bob keeps Cariblue in great condition, and has included helpful optional features on his boat that I did not have in the other Hunters, such as a feathering prop for improved sailing speed (we hit 8 knots at one point in a 12 knot breeze, speed over ground), and a radar with contact tracking functions that was a comfort to have when navigating through shipping channels. Six of us stayed on the boat throughout our trip to Catalina, where we visited Two Harbors, Avalon and Emerald Bay, having a great time at each port of call. The fresh water tanks were big enough for us to get through the whole week without refiling - with some careful water use and provisioning. We also made good use of the Bose entertainment system for movies and music during evenings. Bob was also very responsive throughout the pre-chartering logistics, and even during the charter when I had a question about returning the boat. He was there to meet us the beginning of our charter and when we returned to LA, and had a wealth of tips for boat operating and on ways to explore Catalina. I would recommend Cariblue for anyone looking to have a great bareboat charter sailing experience around LA and Catalina.
My experience chartering to George and his crew of 5 was exceptionally good. George and his crew arrived at the time we agreed to board my boat. He displayed very good boating/sailing skills, good judgement and attention to detail. His crew was likewise experienced and very respectful of my boat. His 8 day charter to Catalina was trouble free. He returned the boat on time, clean and in great condition and he settled his post charter expenses promptly after the charter. It was a pleasure to charter to George and his crew and I would be very happy to charter to him again.
Really friendly and helpful. We had a blast fishing all day on his boat.
