our reviews

This experience was 10/10! It was a great way to see Santa Monica Bay and an amazing sunset! The other couple
that was supposed to come did not show up so the captain was kind enough to let me and my boyfriend have a
solo cruise. So much fun!

The best Tour! Mike was the best! So friendly and informative of the area and the sea lions! I would recommend
this tour to couples or friends!

A fantastic date idea!
I booked this cruise for my first wedding anniversary. The boat was magnificent and captain Lucas was a pleasure.
The tray of assorted meat and cheese was a nice compliment to a beautiful trip around the harbor.

This experience was incredible! Amazing tour guide on the cutest boat, decorated perfect with pillows and
blankets. Perfect for a group or a romantic date. We went at 4:00 and watched the sunset while enjoying
champagne and red wine. The charcuterie was great as well. The meet was easy and the directions they gave us
was perfect. Amazing for showing friends and family the Marina. Best ride we have been on! We will definitely be
going again.

- Jordan

This was very romantic and fun. The Marina is big so we just made few stops out in open water. And got some
good shots of the sunset. As an extra bonus there were a boat parade and fireworks this evening. Our driver Mike
was amazing, and the other guests were so great to hang out with. We are really happy with our tour

- Antony

Our tour guide Mike was fantastic. Helped make the tour very enjoyable and took us to a few places in the Marina
where we got to see Sea Lions. If you have the chance, I would highly recommend this experience!

Marina del Rey relaxing Kayak tour
The tour was fun, relaxing and the harbor area was beautiful. Our tour guide Walker was very informative and
made the experience enjoyable.

Worth it!
I was a little suspicious about this… didn’t think we’d actually see sea lions. I was wrong! Totally awesome
experience, saw a number of sea lions and loved the whole experience. Our guide was great!

- Shnokumhl

Great experience
Alexy was an absolute delight to get to paddle board with for a few hours. He is kind and filled with joy. We got to
see a few sea lions and had a relaxing time on the water. I’d go again for sure.

- AngelaMBurch

Our guide Walker was just great with lots of info about the sea lions and the boats. We didn't realize we were
going to be paddling inside a marina which made for easy paddling. But just different than we thought the photo<br. depicted. Looking now it does look like a dock.

Alejandro was amazing! Was a bucketlist trip for one in our group. Everything was perfect. Thank you

Wow! Excellent Day Trip to Malibu
Title says it all! Stephen and Justin were outstanding hosts to my girlfriend and me. It was truly the highlight to our
trip to Santa Monica. We started at the Santa Monica pier where they picked us up in their vintage VW bus. The
bus was in great shape and super cool to take pictures with. Then, we hopped on board for our wine stop at a
local wine tasting room. This room was right on the water, newly renovated, and featured a great wine flight
selection. Stephen also offered cheese, crackers, and meat as a tasty supplement. Don't forget to try the wine
Italian ice! It was surprisingly delicious. Next, after wine tasting was over, they took us on an awesome coastline
drive (the PCH) to Malibu. We drove past Pepperdine University, through Malibu hills, and up to a secret surf spot
at Point Dume. All I can say is WOW. What a view. I certainly can't find this in New York. After some more picture
opportunities, we headed back to our drop off point. Overall, the best $$ value I have spent on an experience. This
experience may be still working out some logistical kinks, but Justin and Stephen's love for the area and hosting
ability were truly top notch. HIGHLY recommend, don't miss out!

Vino and vintage VWs - how could you go wrong! The tour around Malibu was amazing and I enjoyed the wine
tasting. For me as a solo traveler it was important that everyone was friendly - the atmosphere was nice and the
vibes were chill. Stephen, our guide, went above and beyond to make sure we were taking care of and we
definitely had the time of our life. So far this tour was the best thing I’ve done in LA!

- Maria

What an awesome tour of Malibu! Our guide, Alexy, was great! He took us to very beautiful and iconic spots. The
wine tasting at Rosenthal’s was a nice experience complete with music, and cool ambiance. Being in the 1972
Volkswagen van, we were a tourist attraction ourselves. What a fun trip. Highly recommended!

- Marlene F.

What an amazing way to discover Malibu! The VW van looks fantastic and has it’s unique character. Our guide
was very knowledgeable and showed us beautiful places along the way. The wine tasting room was nice and cozy,
I liked the outside installations, really cool for pictures. Outstanding views and unbeatable hospitality. Definitely
recommend this one in a lifetime experience!

- Anna

What an incredible way to discover Malibu! I have never been there before and now I feel like I saw its best parts.
The guide was very attentive and went above and beyond to give us the time of our life. I enjoyed the cute wine
tasting place with its hip ambiance. And of course the van was super cool. Overall fantastic tour, the best I’ve done
in LA so far.

I booked this tour as a birthday present for my boyfriend. We had such a fun time. I highly recommend. Although<br. the listing says that this tour could be with up to 6 people, we were the only 2 people on our tour with two surf
instructors/organizers. They picked us up at our Airbnb and drove us out to a couple view points along the Malibu
coast, including a walk out on the Malibu pier where we were able to grab a coffee. Since we are very much
beginners, we headed to a quieter surf spot farther up the coast where the hosts gave
us some surf tips and gave us wetsuits and surfboards. We had about 2 hours of surfing before lunch (hot dogs, chips, soda/water). They
kindly were even able to accommodate my dietary restrictions (gluten free) and also had vegetarian options if
needed. We were able to shower off at the beach and then headed back to our Airbnb in Venice. It was such a
unique experience (we loved the van) and we had so much fun!

- John Doe

What a wonderful way to spend the day in Malibu! My teenage daughter and I agreed that this was our favorite
experience during our week In LA. I cannot say enough about our guide Alejandro. He was an amazing host and
teacher. We plan to do the tour again on our next visit.
