After a 22-year career in Law Enforcement, Captain John in San Diego retired from the force and took to the water as a full-time boat captain. He's now been a captain for the past five years. His venture into this transition as a second career came from a suggestion from a friend after he had purchased a yacht with the intention for only personal use. By providing incredible customer service and customizing special experiences for his guests, success came quickly for John. He soon was able to purchase a second yacht, as well as start referring business to partners in his network, which represents 25 yachts in the San Diego Bay area.
When it comes to GetMyBoat, Captain John uses the platform as a marketing tool to reach more customers looking to plan the perfect water experience with ease. He says “GetMyBoat has been great about promoting our charter business and managing our customers' experience with bookings. We've enjoyed a significant increase in business revenue as a result of GetMyBoat efforts.”
Being a yacht captain is a dream job to many, as you’re always invited to the party! From sunset cocktail cruises to bachelorette parties, family gatherings, and weddings, there’s no limit to memories that can be made with Captain John while cruising with him out in the San Diego Bay.
One of his favorite aspects of being a yacht captain, in addition to earning a living being out on the water, cruising on his boat, is being a component of helping others have a special day and making memories with their loved ones. He’s fostered relationships with many customers who stay in touch and enjoy multiple events onboard his yacht. He’s also had the honor of performing four weddings, getting to take part in joining together couples on their special day.
“We are so happy we booked with Captain John and the Bella Luna for my husband's surprise 50th birthday party. Captain John was extremely accommodating and informative. The boat offers multiple areas for socializing-plenty of shade and sun opportunities with different vistas from each area. It was a wonderful tour around the bay and we all really enjoyed seeing the sea lions perch! We would definitely do it again and highly recommend it to people looking for an unusual, memorable and relaxing event site! Thank you, Mike and Captain John for everything.” - Kendra
