Wonderful Experience

We planned a small memorial service for my mother with The Duchess Yacht Charters, and Capt Skip and Ana made sure that it exceeded all of our expectations. The logistics were seamless, they were friendly and gracious, and our family was able to have a peaceful and tranquil goodbye. The customer service, professionalism, and beautiful boat allowed us to have the memorial that we envisioned. Thank you!!

Royal Treatment on the Duchess

What an absolute treat to have the opportunity to spend a day at sea on the Duchess, with Capt Skip and his crew. Beyond professional, the entire experience from speaking to Skip beforehand and deciding what trip met our needs, to easy directions to the yacht, to spending the day at sea. We cruised, we fished a bit... and I should really say we caught some really great fish as opposed to just fishing, we anchored off the Malibu coast... and we enjoyed a really lovely breakfast and lunch prepared by Anna. We will do this again, and I look forward to working with the Duchess team again. They anticipate your needs, they treat guests like family, and they are a class above. Cheers Skip... and thank you.

Testimonial #78

My family and I had a really wonderful day out on The Duchess with Skip and his crew!! The boat itself is beautiful. Skip, Joe and Ana were all very kind and made the experience fun for everyone! I would definitely do this again the next time we are out in Marina Del Rey!

Incredible day we will do again!

We had such a special day for my husband's birthday! My 9 and 13 year old loved fishing, and kept saying it was their favorite day. Delicious wine and Anna even played with my 9 month old while I fished a little! Will be back for sure. The Berg family

Awesome Birthday Experience!

I had an awesome 40th birthday on The Duchess with Skip and Anna! I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I did a lot of research to find an experience that had a personal touch and it was well worth it. We had a 4-hour trip with brunch and whale watching. The boat was in immaculate condition and Skip and Anna made sure my friends and I had a great experience as well as kept a look out for whales. I would definitely recommend The Duchess. I look forward to taking another trip in the future.

Nothing better than The Duchess

The Duchess was everything and more that we could have asked for. Skip and his team took care of everything, making the experience one we will never forget. Can’t recommend it enough. Thanks Captain Skip!

60th Birthday was a blast

My family celebrated our mom's 60th birthday with a fishing trip aboard The Duchess. Greeted with drinks, a light breakfast, and snacks, we were immediately on our way to the fishing grounds. Rock Fish were aplenty with some sole mixed in. The Duchess crew did a great job of teaching us how to fish for these fish, re-baiting and assisting where needed. After all was done, we had a relaxing trip back to port on the boy of the boat. The expansive views of the California coast were breathtaking. By the time we were pulling up to the dock, all the fish had been cleaned, filleted, and packed for our ride home. Best of all, our mom had an absolute blast. Thank you, Skip and The Duchess crew! You have an amazing setup. Hope to return in the future!

First Class Experience!!

We hired The Duchesse for our company holiday party and it was SO much fun! Captain Skip and his crew is first class and so is his Yacht! It created an experience for my team that was elegant, special, and fun. I look forward to our next Voyage on The Duchesse!

Wonderful Wedding Experience

We had a wonderful experience from start to finish with our wedding planning and ceremony aboard the Duchess. Skip and the crew did a fabulous job of coordinating our wedding ceremony details, treating our family like their own, and taking care of our every need and were very responsive in doing so. They made all of our wedding dreams come true. The yacht was beautiful and classy and they were very professional from start to finish.

Absolutely Great Experience on the yacht "The Duchess"

Absolutely Great Experience on the yacht "The Duchess" Big THANKS to Captain Skip & Joe and Anna! Guys, with you we had an unforgettable experience! This fishing trip was by far the best organized, well prepared, and enthusiastic fishing trip I have ever been on! The Captain took us to places where we caught multiple rockfish (brown, red, black...). Joe prepared octopus bait, and coasted all the fishing rods reeling fairly quickly. On the way back to harbor all fish was cleaned, and a group of seagulls was super happy by catching in the air fresh leftovers. After the trip, in the hotel we had the best fish dinner ever, all cooked by our Brazilian chef. We don't regret that we have several pictures to document our awesome day. Thank you for it. We wanted to see all of you in the future, like old good friends. I will never forget this experience!!!

Wonderful experience

We had a fantastic trip and a good experience throughout. Captain and crew were great and I would highly recommend the Duchess.

Family Farewell

On Saturday morning following Thanksgiving weekend this year our immediate family came to Los Angeles and commissioned the Duchess for a two - hour trip from Marina Del Rey to scatter my son's ashes and those of his mother. It turned out to be a memorable way to bring closure for the family to the loss of our beloved son and brother. Skip and his assistant, Anna, managed the trip with dignity and kindness. We couldn't have been in better hands. They The Duchess is an immaculate and beautiful boat. I am pleased to be able to recommend Skip and the Duchess to you for a wonderful experience. Skip can give you my phone number if you want to know more. Sincerely, Paul Borden

Magical

Skip and his crew were exceptional in every way. My family and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Thanks Skip!

BEST DAY EVER!

Skip & Anna made our Sunday a complete FUNDAY! Great wine, great company, and a world class skipper. Skip is the man!

Great sea experience!

We had a great time and were taken care of by a small crew of wonderful people lead by the capitan Skip. They were patient and accommodating, warm and personable and went an extra mile to make sure everyone had a good time. Highly recommended.

Testimonial #62

Our family decided last minute to book a cruise with Duchess Yacht Charters. Not really knowing the area or the weather (we are from the SF Bay area) Skip suggested a four hour sunset cruise and it was spectacular. The cruise was mellow and the sunset even knocked the socks off of my somewhat hard to impress children. The appetizers and wine were top notch, as well as the service provided by Anna and Skip. The cruise was relaxing, punctuated by sights of dolphins and pelicans diving for fish. If you are looking for a first class charter for the afternoon, I can personally recommend The Duchess Yacht.
