I brought my sister in law out with Captain Mark during her 2 week visit to the central coast, this was her first time out of the mid atlantic area. Captain Mark is so laid back and created a custom experience for us. The high light of her trip west.

What an experience! Captain Mark was knowledgeable, informative, and entertaining. This was the perfect gift for Dad's birthday.... and the kids loved it as much as he did! I would recommend this trip to anyone and everyone.

Captain Mark is first class. He took our 6 folks out on the Spirit 46 foot sail boat on a gorgeous birthday sailing day in October. It was like sailing with Jimmy Buffet, fun, a little daring on the high seas when we went outside the protected Bay getting salt spray in our faces as we laughed it off. "Hey... More

Captain Mark is the best you could hope for in a tour guide. Super nice, welcoming guy with tons of great stories. Very knowledgeable on the local history, folklore, marine life and more. Such a fun trip! We took the 2:00 sail and got to rig the sail and steer the boat. Saw dolphins, seal lions, otter rafts and more.... More

Me and my wife had an amazing day with central coast charters. Neither one of us had ever sailed before and it couldn't have gone better. We would definitely recommend a charter to our friends and plan on going again ourselves!

We had a great time on our cruise. The boat is clean and Mark is so nice and easy going. It was all about fun and relaxing. Of course the highlight was seeing about 10 whales all around us with dolphins interspersed. It was awesome!

Captain Mark made us feel at home right away and then we were out to sea! We were lucky enough to see whales and dolphins and heard some good stories and local history. Captain Mark allows you to try to work the boat if you want which was great fun for me! I will definitely go on another trip with... More

Missed the whales but saw a lot of other marine life. You can actively participate or just do what you want. Captain Mark has a wealth of historical and animal life knowledge. It just feels great to get out on the water. Snacks, beer and wine were top notch. You do have to be somewhat mobile as you have to... More

The trip was absolutely worth every penny. I will definitely be taking the tour again. Captain Mark was very educating on the history of Avila. We saw about 25 whales. What an experience.
