John & Alicia created a perfect day on Mission Bay for my family. They were extremely responsive and helpful. We received a thorough orientation to the boat and surrounding waters. We wanted to water ski & wakeboard and the boat was very smooth & powerful. Perfect for our plans. Thank you!
It was a pleasure renting John's boat. John and his wife were very friendly and easy to get in contact with. The day went very smoothly and the boat was great! We especially enjoyed the tower for wakeboarding. I would definitely rent from John again.
Had an excellent time. Hospitality was very excellent. John was a professional and very thorough at assisting us with every aspect of the boat and procedures. Hes made a customer for life. Crazy holiday weekend and he still went beyond all of our expectations to make sure we had the utmost excellent experience. I truly appreciate you guys. Thank you and i will see you soon.
Sunshine Daydream! Had a blast on the water. John and Alicia were super friendly and accommodating. The boat was perfect for our group of ten. Tubing and chilling. Will definitely rent from these fine folks again. Thanks so much.
Captain John and Alicia were the absolutely best. We had an amazing experience, and will definitely do it again! We rented the boat captained to do water-sports for 4 days. The boat was clean, in excellent condition and provided a week of extremely exciting family fun. If you are coming to San Diego and need a boat don't go ANYWHERE else but here! They are fantastic!
We had the most wonderful time! John and Alicia are so professional and kind. They take it to another level! First class service. Well worth getting the captain too vs just renting the boat. They even busted out a wakeboard and help teach my husband. We got to go on a special spot on the bay and also sightseeing in the ocean. They take service to a hole new level and treat you like royalty! The boat was clean in great condition and perfect for our day trip! We had a blast and they exceeded expectation and then some. No doubt we will book them all over again. Stellar service and stellar boat!
We had an awesome day on the water with John's boat. He was really thorough, punctual and the boat ran great. As a boat owner myself, I really appreciate renting out your toy. It was even better than we expected! We had two full families on the boat - four adults and five kids (ages 3-9) and we had plenty of room. We all had a blast! It was a really memorable vacation activity and a super fun way to see the area.
If I was able to rate with 10 stars I would! Couple of friends and I rented John and Alicia’s boat for Labor Day and we had a blast! John and Alicia are the best! I definitely recommend renting from them. We definitely look forward for a next time. Thank you so much!
What an awesome experience renting this boat truly was! Great and helpful communication before, during and after the entire process, as well as friendly, calm and thorough detail given during our onboarding that day. The boat ran perfectly with no issues whatsoever, and was outfitted with everything needed for an exciting and relaxing day on the Bay. Thank you to John and Alicia for making our day even sunnier, we hope to do it again next summer! Renting this excellent and good looking boat is HIGHLY recommended by this Arizonan!
John and Alicia were amazing hosts! They communicated expectations thoroughly and made sure we were setup to have a great day on the bay! I would not hesitate to rent from them again.
The Chaparral was meticulously maintained and well cared for. That thing can really kick a wake and is perfect for skiing, wakeboarding or throwing your friends around on a tube! We had a blast!
John and Alicia’s boat was awesome, for an older boat it was really kept up and in great shape. The boat ran really well for a cruise on the bay and towing a hot dog on the bay. My whole family of 10 really enjoyed their time on the boat. Will rent their boat again. Great boat owners!
Thank you very much, John and Alicia!
John and Alicia were very nice and their boat handled absolutely beautifully out on the bay. Would very much recommend to anyone looking to spend a great day out on mission bay!
What a great experience! John and Alycia were awesome, very prompt in returning emails and text. Dropped boat off on time and were ready to pick up on time. Boat ran great with no problems (as advertised). We will be rentin this boat again soon. Thank you for a wonderful experience, I would HIGHLY recommend renting from them.
John was awesome! He was on time and made an effort to deliver the boat to a spot outside the designated zone. Boat was in great shape and all worked out perfect. Will definitely book this boat again on my next SD trip.
We had a great time on this boat! John was very promt in responding and getting everything organized for us. The boat ran great and John showed us where to pick up a extra wakeboard to rent, very easy to get to. We stopped for lunch at the Barefoot Bar and then went out for more wakeboading and cruising. John met us right at the dock to return the boat. It was seamless, organized and fun!
