Perfect day on the water
Eric_Z, Dec 2022
Perfect trip! 2 hours on the water was the right amount of time for our work group to see the area and different views of the city as well as some celebrity homes. Fernando was very knowledgeable about the area and I highly recommend him if you are able to specify a captain for your excursion.

Just OK
Asal_S, Oct 2022
The boat ride was fine, nothing special and definitely not worth $450. We were brought back 22 minutes early even though we paid for 1:30-3:30. We docked at 3:07. We were shown a few celebrity houses and that’s about it.
Response from Host, Oct 2022
Thanks Asai for your feedback. Glad to see the boat ride was fine. You onboarded the boat 30 min before your start time as you got there earlier ( we advice our customers to get there ahead of time in case there are issues finding the location) so your tour last the full two hours you paid for.Also just to note that you did not pay 450$ for your booking. Looking forward to seeing you soon onboard again

Must Do
Maverick_J, Oct 2022
Not sure why it took so long but we finally took a boat out when we had friends over. Download a playlist and bring your own booze, and the vibes will be good. Two hours is a good amount of time to see the river and bay. You might catch a few dolphins, too, like we did.
Response from Host, Oct 2022
Hi Maverick,we try to ensure we provide you guys with the best possible set up for your tour.Glad you guys had a blast
