Every aspect of this sailing trip and Central Coast Charters was top notch! Captain Mark was a fantastic guide and is a great guy to hang out with, too! We had a fabulous time and learned interesting things about sailing and the local area. Mark shared quality snacks and drinks and also let us sail SPIRIT. The whole afternoon was really laid back while still feeling totally safe and responsible on the water. Central Coast Charters is right on course and we definitely will book again when in the SLO area!

What a great experience - you will not be disappointed. Clean and safe boat, light snacks and beverages, and a personable captain, all along a stunning coastline. We just did a tour today and we are already looking at booking another when we have company in town. If you charter for six people, it makes for a very reasonably priced experience. CCC and Mark are treasures!

What an awesome experience we had with Mark as our captain on the Spirit! If he was in sail boat sails everyone would walk away with one! If given the opportunity everyone should try this here on the central coast! We are from Texas and will remember this for years to come!

While on the west coast visiting with wonderful lifetime friends, I wanted to surprise the group with a day of sailing as a thank you for their hospitality. My goodness; so glad to have found Mark @ Central Coast Charters! Mark is very welcoming and personable, His Boat is beautiful, clean, and comfortable, he shared his knowledge of the area and sailing, he offered a delightful snack and refreshing drinks. I love sailing and was thrilled when Mark asked if anyone was interested in helping with the sail & steering. My friends from 3 areas in Cali intend on sailing again with Mark - taking their family's as they all enjoyed it so very much! You can't go wrong on this one!

This was given as a birthday gift to my husband who LOVES to sail...what a great gift! The afternoon was sunny, the ship (Spirit) was gorgeous, the snacks (including wine and beer) were perfect, but what really elevated the experience was the captain, Mark. He made sure the trip was individually tailored to please each passenger aboard...from experienced sailor to landlubber. We all had the time of our lives! If you want a gift that WOWS, or you want to give yourself a memorable day, we highly recommend sailing on Spirit with Captain Mark!
