Excellent Recommendations – Great Charter Experiences

The boat tour was amazing. We got to experience so much and see a lot of wildlife. Jane and Randy were so friendly and knowledgeable. We would go again and again if we lived in the California area. This is a must do when in the San Diego area.

My Aunt came to visit me from Florida, having never been to CA before, this had to be special! So, we booked a charter with San Diego Boat Tours with Tawanna as our Hostess and although it was cloudy that morning, the sun came out and we all had the most amazing and photographic adventure we could have asked for! Sea lions, pelicans, dolphins, great food and the best tour guide Tawanna, who made the trip truly memorable!

A lifetime goal for me was to charter a boat for my 50th birthday party.  After a great deal of research, I was excited to meet Tawanna and the friendly staff.  They were very responsive, helpful, and supportive!  I appreciated her insight and answers to all of my questions.

The day of my party was perfect.  The captain and crew made our outing enjoyable and everyone had a great time!  I hope to have the opportunity to be on board again because they made my milestone birthday very special.

Very pleasant and enjoyable yacht charter and very friendly staff. Both Captain Joel and 1st Mate Amber were very helpful and friendly and took care of us on our trip. The captain makes a big difference in the success of the charter. Saw such beautiful views. We went out in the morning because the wind does not generally pick up until later in the day. This kept the waves calm and gave us a smooth trip.  We were lucky in that we also saw sea lions.

Awesome tour with Capt. Dana!  Really thoroughly enjoyed the sights and sounds of the bay and of the San Diego skyline. My family loves the boat tour and we’ve made it a family tradition to catch a ride with San Diego Boat Tours every time we’re in town.

Thank you Tawanna for all the info and your many kindnesses.  Happy sailing and no worries… Couldn’t be better.

With the help of the amazing Tawanna and boat crew of San Diego Boat Tours, I planned a surprise 30th birthday party for my fiancé and I must say he was definitely surprised. Being that it was my first time throwing a big bash like this and having to keep it a secret from him for months was already stressing, Tawanna had helped me tremendously to take most of the stress away from the initial planning, responding quickly to my emails, answering all my questions, and even helping with the food/drinks set up! I can’t thank her and the crew enough for a wonderful night. We had 47 guests on the boat, and I was able to bring in my own food and alcohol. The catamaran itself was a beauty. It was spacious and clean and fit everyone outside to watch the sunset and inside when the weather became cooler. My guests are still talking about it to this day of how much of a fun experience it was for them. I recommend San Diego Boat Tours to anyone looking to rent out a boat for a special occasion, you will not regret it!

Captain Joel and host Richelle were fantastic and we loved our bay tour. The yacht was incredible! Thanks for your extra effort in putting together our charter so quickly. We will do it again in the future.

Thank you very much. The crew were wonderful and did a great job and it was a lovely morning. The whole family was pleased and impressed that you all could bring out the whales too!

We recently used San Diego Boat Tours and I highly recommend them to anyone. Tawanna was amazing and took care of everything for us. The Captain and our hostess exceeded our expectations. Next time we are in the area we will be booking another one of their tours.

The whole evening (wedding) was even better than we imagined it would be. The crew were amazing and actually felt very much like family to us. I think it may be great for LGBT couples to see some pics of a same sex wedding on the website and we’d love to help in that. I almost wish we could do it all over again every month. It was just such a magical experience.
Angie - July/2014

The trip, the captain, the hostess were all amazing. I would give them all a 10 and would highly recommend your company.
Debbie - July/2014

San Diego Boat Tours was absolutely incredible. Some of the most genuine, kind individuals who love their job and are eager to help. They went above and beyond in planning the perfect proposal. I cannot thank them enough! Rest assured you are in good hands with San Diego Boat Tours…Thanks again Tawanna!!!
Josh - April/2014

We got married with San Diego Boat Tours on one of their larger yachts and had a fabulous time.  I recommend this service to everyone!!! Top Notch service and thoughtfulness.  They went above and beyond to make sure our special day was great.  Thank you to all.
Angela - March/2014

My husband, Stephen and I, thoroughly felt relaxed, comforted and proud of the attention that the crew showed. Amber is a wonderful host, and her attention to details is superb! She also has a great personality for your business. The captain knows many, many facts, and has a leadership quality that is calming, polite and uplifting and we enjoyed all of the history about the San Diego area/Bay.
Carolyn - June/2013

The boat’s crew were excellent! I wouldn’t hesitate to use your services again. Thanks again.

It was a fantastic evening. She said YES! (engagement charter) I was very nervous, but I will put the pictures on my computer and e-mail them to you. Thank you so much for all your help! I might be using your services again soon.
Sal - May/2011

Words cannot describe the experience that I had on your yacht yesterday. Our captain was extremely knowledgeable. We hung out watching 4 – 5 whales, spout, fluke, breach and roll in the kelp. On the way out and way back we had 80 – 100 dolphins playing in the wake of our boat. That was an experience by itself. Wow! What a day!
John - April/2011

The yacht Charter was absolutely beautiful. From the very first phone call to the end, this was a wonderful experience, with all so very thoughtful in helping us plan this event. It surpassed all expectations, and we want to thank you for making it such a special day.
Elizabeth - January/2011

We all had a FABULOUS time and spent the entire time up with the Capt. (charming). EVERYONE had a great time and my Mom’s 85th was one of her most memorable (she told me!). Thank you for your helpful planning and follow-through. I imagine I will see you again as I like entertaining this way.
Kathleen - October/2010

This made for a great 30th Birthday for our group. It was a unique, fun, and exciting way to spend the evening. The night charter provided for wonderful views of San Diego, the Coronado Bridge, and the Hotel Del Coronado. The Captain was knowledgeable and really made the evening a great experience for everyone, whether you wanted fun facts or in-depth naval explanations and history he knew it all.
Steve - May/2010

This was absolutely a fantastic experience. The crew was very pleasant and accommodating from the very first phone call until the charter was completed – this crew handled the entire trip beyond our expectations. All of our friends and family commented how great this was and very happy to share this time with us. Again, thank you for all you have done for us and we would highly recommend your services to everyone. You were all great!!!
Lorraine - September/2009

Thank you all for providing such a great tour – Your service was great. All of you made our evening wonderful. The bay cruise was absolutely fabulous. The captain knew exactly where to take us and the views were spectacular. We all had a lot of fun and we had a very memorable night. Also, the food was excellent. I would definitely recommend your charter to anyone that is looking into an intimate party, or for a relaxing cruise around the bay. My 50th party was everything I hoped for! I loved it!
