Captain Gene was a big help when I proposed to my girlfriend. I chartered a private sail on his beautiful boat for the early afternoon and we had a great time. We saw lots of otters, seals, sea lions, and tons of birds. The boat was clean and well maintained, and Gene was very friendly and knowledgeable. He even helped me pull off part of my proposal surprise. I'd highly recommend him to a friend, and if I'm ever in Monterey again I'll book another cruise.

Capt. Gene is a fascinating person, sharing his knowledge and experiences along with providing a safe and exciting sunset sail. We couldn't have dreamed of a more pleasurable sailing adventure. Thank you Capt. Gene.

We had a great time on our trip out with Capt Gene on the Carrera on Oct 4, 2020. We had 3 adults and 3 kids on board, and everyone enjoyed the experience. It was a bit foggy, but still very enjoyable. Also, Capt Gene patiently answered all my questions about his adventures on the seas, which added to our adventure. Highly recommended!

Fantastic time sailing, great boat, and great caption - Gene. I highly recommend Carrera sailing, we had a great time and went about 6 or 7 miles off shore, great weather and good size boat for 6 people. Very reasonably priced to.. definitively worth it!

We had an amazing time out on the sailboat with Capt. Gene on Sunday, August 16th for a surprise birthday celebration for a friend. The day was gorgeous but the Monterey Bay was a little rough the farther we went out and Capt. Gene made everyone feel comfortable with his professional and calm demeanor, even the first-time sailors! The boat was very clean and well-cared for, and Gene followed COVID and safety protocol to a "T." I definitely recommend sailing with Carrera; I know I will again soon.

Dear Happiness440189, first of all, thank you for your lovely review that explains that the Monterey Bay is an open bay exposed to the ocean conditions and points out that we follow all the COVID directives set for boat charters.
