Captain Christian is one of the kindest, personable individuals my wife and I have ever met, and his cruise was awesome! We highly recommend this cruise - you will not be disappointed!

I have traveled alot and done alot of cool things on those trips- but this seriously was the best excursion I have ever booked on a vacation in my life. The whole experience was a perfect 10. Booking was easy- I called and left a message for captain Christian (who was out on a sail) and he called me back... More

I can't even begin to describe how awesome these 2 hours of my life were! When we were planning our trip to drive the PCH with our best friends, the idea of a boat ride in the cold sounded like a not fun idea. However, the leader and birthday girl INSISTED and for that we will always be grateful! Christian... More

Seriously, one of the best vacation experiences I've ever had! If you don't give this a 5 star review, the problem is with you! Christian ran a top notch trip for a group of 4 of us. He was the captain, the skipper, the chef, the bartender, and wait for it...the best Whale finder you could ask for! On top... More

On our first full day in Carmel - October 26th - my boyfriend and I decided to make a trip up to Monterey to go for a sail boat ride, and boy did we have a sail boat ride! The winds were strong that day and there was never a luff in the sail. Rather than a calm ride, drinking... More

What an incredible experience! My husband and I have been on safaris in Eastern and Southern Africa and this is the closest experience we have had in the US. We say many hump back whales, two of which came right up to the yacht. The highlight for me was seeing a pod of over a hundred common dolphins swim along... More

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
