We had a great time sailing. The captain was knowledgeable, understanding, and patient with our 6 and 7 year old children

We booked the sunset cruise the night before Easter....we were freezing. The captain couldn't have been nicer but he probably should have cancelled the trip..just too cold!

One of the best experiences I've ever had on the island. No joke. We will definitely be doing this again and are looking to bring friends along to possibly charter a whole day. The sail boat captain takes you past lovers cove. Then you float off some shear cliffs where seal lions dwell by the dozens. We spotted whales as well. The sun slowly sets with the island to the right. The vast open ocean to the left. After sunset the boat comes back into the harbor where gleaming lights sparkle off the dark water... As small as Catalina is... It's grandiose I tell you.

This was an incredible experience that was worth every penny. I was looking to sail out to Catalina Island and have an adventure/ romantic experience for the girlfriend at the time to propose to her on a sail boat. Captain Ryan was in frequent contact with me before the sail helping me to plan and coordinate a most excellent sailing adventure. Captain Ryan arrived on time to pick us up and was real classy carrying our luggage to the boat, giving us a detailed tour of the boat and making us feel most welcome on the vessel. The boat was beautiful and both of us where so happy to be sailing out across that beautiful blue water on such a stunning ship. Out on the water we saw see lions, several pods of dolphins, and even multiple blue whales less than 20 yards from our boat! It was magical. Ryan had extensive knowledge on sailing , the ocean and its creatures, Catalina Island's local history and wildlife, as well as activities to do once on the Island. In addition Captain Ryan helped me stage the whole proposal, and when it came to popping the questions I got a 'YES"!! Catalina Island and the ocean surrounding it is incredible and I can't think of a better way to experience them both then on the boat "Thesis" with Captain Ryan. I can see myself doing this trip again!

I have wanted to "go sailing, take me away..." for a very long time. Captain Ryan was amazing. He was stern as I would expect a Captain to be, but he was also very informative and made us feel at ease on the boat.I'd definitely sail with Captain Ryan again and he has my highest recommendation for fellow visitors to the Island,
