GetMyBoat customer reviews for boat rentals in Marina del Rey.
If you're hesitating -- don't. Ryan is by far the best captain I've experienced. We booked his boat for our friends' birthday and it was absolutely perfect. The sound system (bluetooth) rocks, the route was perfect, we saw sea lions, dolphins and a gorgeous view of the Santa Monica pier + Malibu. It does get breezy, so if you get cold easily you might want to bring a jacket. There's a small fridge on the boat that held several champagne bottles, but bring a cooler for anything else. We're looking forward to booking with Ryan again.
Captain Andrew and Ozzy were the best guides, we had the best day out of the water. They found a great area for us to anchor and swim around and also took us down the coast to Malibu. It was a perfect day, can’t wait to book with them again.
I’ve never been on a sailing boat before but Captain Mark has showed us the great time. Everyone in our group really enjoyed the trip and left with a lot of joyful memories. Captain Mark deserves 10 stars out of 5 stars
We had a magical time. The trip was everything we' hoped for and more. My family were entranced by the beauty of the coastline, and made to feel 100% comfortable, at home and at ease. Would do it again in a second.
Mark is amazing! I would definitely recommend him. He’s very friendly and great with communication. He was informative and safe, while still allowing us to have a fun time. The boat was lovely and clean. An overall excellent experience.
Such an exhilarating experience. We did the sunset ride and it was beautiful experience. Mark was great captain and was well prepared. Anyone would have an amazing time hanging out with Mark!
