Beyond Amazing, Captian Christian is the best there is. His sailboat is beautiful and there is nothing you will do in Monterey that will compare. Do not second guess booking with him if you are in the area, you will not regret it. My wife and I had a unforgettable day on the water, and yes we saw some great sites ( including Whales) but it was Christians personality and love for what he does that made it special. Thank you again Christian, Your friend forever.

If there’s one thing you do in Monterey I would advise you make this the thing to do!! I was a little apprehensive of a boat trip as I’m not a big water fan, however Captain Christian made this one of the best experiences of my life! Christian met us with a warm smile and his infectious enthusiasm made for a great trip. We saw dolphins, seals and respectfully followed hump back whales. We took some food and wine and Christian made sure we were comfortable at all times, giving us a go at taking the reins. My advice would be to pay the extra and do a private charter with Christian who will tailor the trip to make sure you get what you want. For us, this was a once in a lifetime experience and Christian made it so!

Don’t second guess booking. Such a great value vs larger tourist boat trips. Captain Christian will ensure an awesome day on the water. We lost track of all he whales and seals, too many to count. Book it!!

We are a family of four, our youngest is 7. We loved our sailing with Christian. He’s a lovely guy and made us feel so welcome. The boat is really nice and we saw lots of dolphins and sea lions. It was by far the best thing we did on our trip to Monterey. I couldn’t recommend this highly enough.
