My experience chartering to Duke was exceptionally good. He displayed a great deal of professionalism and attention to detail. He voluntarily provided me with a detailed float plan and itinerary for his intended charter well before he arrived. Duke arrived at the time we agreed to board my boat. He displayed very good boating/sailing skills and good judgement. His 5 day charter to Catalina was trouble free and he voluntarily kept me informed at the end of each day. 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 Duke and I would be happy to charter to him again.
Hi - Sascha was very friendly and a good boat handler. His communication was only OK, which resulted in a number of missed appointments to pick - up the boat. In addition, the boat came back very late at night and with 1/2 a tank of gas less than it went out with.
Really excellent. Dan was friendly, skilled, fun, and made the afternoon supremely comfortable and enjoyable. We had him skipper the boat and he is clearly an experienced hand. Everyone was at ease hanging out, helping out lightly, and sipping Champagne. Boat was well stocked and in great condition. Dan kills it. Highly recommend.
Aman and his friends were amazing. He chartered the boat to take his girlfriend and friends out for his girlfriend's surprise birthday party. His friends came to the boat early to decorate and he was in constant communication with me before the event. They took great care of the boat and left it as clean as they found it. We had such a good time together that we spoke about doing a longer cruise to the Island over the summer. They are wonderful people. (5 stars)
Richard was a great captain, he was very accommodating and mindful of any of the passengers getting motion sickness. I reached out to him regarding a surprise bday for my GF and he was very organized and kept in constant communication with me. Everything went smoothly and I would definitely use Richard and Catalina 36 again for future sailing events.
We had an outstanding time with Captain Joe and First Mate.! They were attentive and made our family feel at home and safe on the boat. A memorable experience.
