My husband & I took the 2 pm trip, on July 23, and had a wonderful adventure! Captain Mark is very courteous, friendly, knowledgeable about marine life, and an excellent sailor. We highly recommend this trip and look forward to sailing with Captain Mark again sometime soon!

Recently my husband I took a trip with central coast charters. It was the best time we have had in a long time and it was money well spent. Our Captain was very knowledgeable on May different levels; history of the area, the waters, the animals and sailing in general. I would highly recommend a voyage with central coast charters... More

We enjoyed sailing with Captain Mark so much that we went twice during our four day stay in San Luis Obispo. The Spirit sailboat was lovely, clean, and comfortable, and Captain Mark was so knowledgeable and entertaining; full of fun facts and stories on the history of our surroundings and the wildlife that we were encountering. We were invited to... More

Captain Mark was on time... soooo very friendly and aware of our surroundings. He was a wealth of information on the wildlife and made the trip comfortable and entertaining. The SPIRIT is a beautiful lady of the sea and very clean and well kept. Unfortunately, we didn't see many whales this outing, but, that had nothing to do with the... More

We sailed with Captain Mark on the Saturday 10:30 cruise. He was so great. He called us the night before because the forecast was for foggy morning in Avila Bay and offered to book us on the afternoon trip. We were unavailable for that time and thought we might have to cancel. We were very disappointed. Captain Mark said not... More

Our family had a wonderful experience celebrating our sons graduation with an afternoon sail. Mark is a great host, and we look forward to going out again.

Took the whole family and grandparents. Mark gave both kids a chance to sail the boat and went out of his way to show us the sea life and provide history of the area. Very personable and the boat is very well cared for. Would go again net time we are in the area.
