“LOVE boating with my family and friends...ultimate adventure in So Cal exploring the islands and harbor hopping! ”
Aboard since 2015
From Marina del Rey, CA
I can't express enough how Captain Scott took care of my guest. This was my first time booking with boatsetter so I was a little apprehensive with the process. I had many options to select from but decided to go with the one with the best reviews... Not only did Captain Scott live up to his reputation, he exceeded them. He took the extra time and effort to make the occasion a most memorable one. I am forever indebted to him. I will be booking again and there is no other boat service then Captain Scott. He is my forever go to guy. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience. I wish I could give him 10 STARS!
Scott was an amazing host with a beautiful boat. Very personable, flexible and accommodating. He is definitely a highly skilled boater with great knowledge of the waters and landmark destinations on the waters surrounding Los Angeles. 5 out of 5 and we hope to cruise with Scott the next time we're on the west coast!
My family & I had a most enjoyable, fun experience with Captain Scott aka Captain Shahrouz, who was warm & personable. We highly recommend him as we shared a great afternoon with him, gaining a different perspective of Marina Del Rey-Santa Monica-Pacific Palisades-Malibu from the water. And the dolphins that swam along side his boat were awesome to see! I really appreciated his courteousness, sensitivity & attentiveness he showed to each passenger as well as professionalism & his knowledge of boating / the ocean. In addition, his Regal boat was lovely & kept very clean. My son, who loves sailing & being on the water, loved having him as our captain & the boat ride itself. He begged that we go boating again soon with Captain Scott / Shahrouz, which we definitely plan to do! A million thanks for a wonderful experience!
We recently treated ourselves to a cruise up the coast with Captain Scott. The experience exceeded our expectations. Captain Scott is such a great guy; accommodating, knowledgeable and very personable. The boat was clean, comfortable and spacious. The trip was both adventurous and relaxing.
Just minutes after leaving the harbor, we encountered a couple of gray whales, awesome! Overall, it was great just being on the ocean, basking in the sun, looking back at the beautiful coastline and snow capped mountains. We topped off our trip with plenty of food, good wine and the companionship of great friends.
We’re all looking forward to new adventures and trips to Catalina and Malibu in the near future with our new friend Captain Scott aka Shahrouz!!!
Really awesome trip out with Scott. Great boat and super friendly. It was a little choppy when we headed out to Malibu but Scott was still able to find us a nice sheltered spot. Everything is as advertised on this post and in the comments. Only draw back was not having the BBQ on the boat which was something we were really looking forward to. Would definitely be keen to go again.
An incredible trip with Scott to Malibu to celebrate my husband's birthday. The boat was beautiful and well equipped. We were surrounded by dolphins at one point, it was magical. Even though we have lived in Southern California for 25 years it was amazing to experience the coastline this way. Thank you, Scott for an unforgettable experience!
One word, awesome! Scott is very hospitable, ensuring everyone is having fun and sharing in his love for boating. He even had bracelets that helped those who were motion sensitive. Finally, he shared details on his favorite spots up and down the coast. As for the boat, perfect! So well maintained with a great sound system, comfy seats and super clean. We went to Catalina which is Italy for the day for So Cal, so pretty! Avalon Grille and golf carts are cool! We will definitely do this again, a big thanks to Scott, boater super hero!
Scott was incredible. He clearly loves boating and entertaining without being intrusive. He will be as involved as you desire which is a wonderful quality. He was flexible about boarding and picking people up. After that the trip was just lovely. He made an effort to ensure that everyone in the party enjoyed themselves. He is an affable person and we would definitely charter with him again. We cruised around Malibu and spent the night on the boat which was extremely comfortable with 4 guests. He suggested we check out the Channel Islands which had great diving and he provided ski doos for snorkeling. We saw a whole bunch of dolphins and it was obvious that he wanted the experience to be positive. He succeeded! The whole experience was an absolute pleasure. He takes pride in his boat which shows - it is in beautiful condition. His love of the water is contagious and you will have a great time if you decide to charter with him.
Definitely five stars!!! He was so accommodating to our crew of seven!! We had never been to Catalina and he sure made it an experience we won't be able to top! He had blue tooth connection for music and plenty of space to store our food and drinks! Anything we wanted we got! Cheers and thanks again for an amazing day!!!
