Hopefully I will get to update this review with more information, but our booking was postponed due to the Safer at Home order. It was supposed to be a surprise birthday party for my husband, and Christine was amazing, offering different suggestions on how to pull it off. She has been so helpful and communicative, and I look forward to taking this trip with her soon!
We had a fantastic time on the yacht as an activity during my best friends bachelorette weekend. It was an amazing experience. The yacht was beautiful with a white modern inside. Aaron's hospitality was incredible, he arranged everything for us and was available to talk about our plans at any time. The captain and first mate were amazing as well. We wound up seeing beautiful dolphins on the trip, they were very fun and were great at pointing out anything that we might have missed! Our time on the yacht turned out to everyone's favorite activity over the course of the entire bachelorette weekend! Thanks so much again for everything, we truly had a fantastic time!
Aaron and his crew were absolutely wonderful. Communication beforehand was very easy and the experience was everything we expected. We had the best time aboard and would definitely book the Side Hustle again!
Linda and her captain were amazing hosts. I had an exceptional time and they genuinely cared for every passenger on board with the utmost hospitality. I highly recommend going with the Bella out on sea!
The trip was great! We had such an amazing time - everyone got the chance to be a actively involved (or not, at their preference) and the views and sunset were so picturesque. We can't wait for our next ride out with Captain Mark!
Mark was perfect for my family and I. Being from Chicago I didn’t have the best sea legs but Mark was informative, attentive and hospitable.
