Just left the Sea Peepers this morning and already missing it. Great location and super friendly check in hosts. More space than you think. Shortish walk to Queen Mary was worth it. Lots of bars and restaurants close by. Not too noisy and we were there Friday. If I'm in this part of the World again it will be a... More

We were treated to a getaway from my folks and enjoyed a lovely night on the Sea Peeper! Lyndsey was a wonderful hostess, and we settled into our private yacht at Rainbow Harbor. Our teens and their grandparents joined us for the afternoon, as we sat on our back deck with an unobstructed view of the Queen Mary, lighthouse and... More

We celebrated our "25th" Anniversary enjoying a stay on the "Pasta Too" at Dockside Boat and Bed. We enjoyed ourselves very much. We were on the smallest boat at Dockside but it fit us perfectly. To do over again I would not come in the heat of summer unless you do like the humidity. Mornings and Evenings were delightful but... More

I surprised my husband with an overnight stay on the Sea Peepers. He loved it. We arrived a bit early and Molly gave us our parking pass at the nearby lot. It was quite packed but we found a spot. I was worried about leaving the car at the other end of the bay but there were no problems. I... More

We just spent 2 nights on Sea Peepers-what a great experience!!! Our boat was at the end of the dock so we had an unconstructed view of the Queen Mary, Shoreline Village & the lighthouse! We just sat on our deck & watched the boats go by-very relaxing!! Our only issue was the bathrooms being very tight but it is... More

Thank you for your kind review- we think we are a pretty cool concept too !! And yes, sadly we do have to agree that boat bathrooms need to be a bit bigger !! So great to hear that you both enjoyed your stay and "got" our concept... just kicking back on the back deck and enjoying the marina lifestyle.... More

An excellent way to get away from it all without really going too far. Spending the night on one of their yachts is a great way to get a feel for what it is like to live on a boat without the expense of actually owning one. The staff was incredibly accommodating. This is a great way to see the... More

made a last-minute decision to stay overnight on a boat, not a lot of opportunity for that up in MN. Was greeted kindly by staff. Beautiful area, located within feet of bay area shopping and restaurants, and a gorgeous view of the bay, including a front-row view of the lighthouse.
