We booked the Other Office for a private whale watch excursion. It was nothing less than amazing. This boat is luxurious, comfortable and complimented by the perfect captain. Captain G made us feel like the boat was ours. I strongly encourage booking this excursion. -Mike

We booked the trip for sailing. The weather was good (overcast at the beginning and sunshine later in the day). The captain was courteous and accommodating to our group. His knowledge of the waters was great. His was sociable and personable. Though our ultimate purpose was to enjoy a few hours of sailing and relax, the encounter with the whales... More

We booked a sunset cruise and spent the night on Bella to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. Captain Christian was so easy to work with. His enthusiasm and love of sailing are infectious. He played great music while we were sailing with the wind in our hair - so fun! He even rigged the harness so I could swing over... More

We sailed with Captain Christian today and had an amazing time! What a great way to end our vacation. Christian was great to work with -- very personable -- from booking our appointment, to ensuring we were having a great time on the boat. The boat was beautiful and we couldn't have asked for a better day. If (or more... More

My husband and I booked an evening sail and night on Christian's beautiful boat. Even though we were late arriving Christian still accommodated us and took us out for a beautiful sail. The boat was very well equipped for the evening as well. We brought a bottle of wine and some snacks and even took in a movie before heading... More

We chartered the boat on a weekday afternoon and had a great adventure on the bay. Our teenagers got to steer the boat which they loved. The captain, Christian, was very friendly and made our trip fun. We were lucky to have a warm, clear day but apparently it isn't always that way so bring a jacket. High recommend this... More

Myself my wife and my two children 8yrs and 11yrs went on a 4 hour charter with Captain Christian. He was a great host letting the kids steer the boat and making sure we were comfortable. We had a brilliant experience. We saw lots and lots of whales and seals. The whales were so close it was breathtaking we felt... More

My wife and I went out with Captain Christian for an afternoon sail this past week. It was unbelievable. Christian is great and took care of everything while we were out there (sailing, ensuring our wine glasses were full, getting us pillows to make sure we were comfortable, giving us dinner and hiking recommendations etc.). There was another family with... More

The boat is amazing for both sailing and to sleep on. Christian the skipper made this trip a memorable one, he's friendly, knowledgable and lots of fun. Would highly recommend both the trip and an overnight stay.

We wanted to scatter my father's ashes in the ocean that he loved so much. And we went out on the sunset cruise to spread the ashes, and about 30 minutes later a humpback whale emerged near the boat - as if my father was saying good-bye. Thank you Christian, you were so thoughtful and caring during our little ceremony.... More
