Perfect Evening

Steve, Michelle, and Francisco were the perfect crew for my party of 26 folks. They took us out on the Legend boat for about 3 hours+ and we all had a great time. Michelle and Francisco were extremely attentive to my party; there at every turn when someone was running low on their drink, be it water, soft drink, wine or beer. They kept track of what we all preferred to drink. Michelle took may pictures through the evening and shared them to us the next day. Everyone on the party has commented in the subsequent days about how fun the boat was and how well run the operation was. We all had a great time and would do it again. It was really fun.

Family Cruise Day!

Our trip out on the Duchess was amazing! We had a group of 18 people, ranging from a 1 yr old to a 65 year old (and even a service dog!). Skip's group was super friendly and helpful. Michelle was an awesome hostess and made sure everyone was comfortable with a full glass and snacks within reach! Skip was communicative from the very beginning and flexible with our needs. I would definitely recommend this beautiful day cruise to any large group looking to enjoy a unique view of the coastline!

A Memorable Trip

Eighteen family members helped scatter my parents' ashes off Marina del Rey. The crew of the Legend made it a memorable and wonderful experience. They were helpful, efficient, and kind. The scattering of the ashes was respectful and beautiful. I would recommend The Legend and her crew to anyone.

bachelor party

The whole day from start to finish was impeccable! We were greeted right on time and quickly boarded the ship to hit the water. Our whole group felt well cared for and supported throughout the day.

It was amazing!

HELFRIED’S Celebration of Life

Saturday was the most touching day and it was very important to me that everything go well. The Legend crew made it happen in so many ways. If i could, i would give them so many stars. Thank you Michelle, Fracisquito and Captain Steve. You are the greatest. Also Rick thank you for all your help

Very accommodating Crew and a beautiful experience.

The Captain and Crew were very accommodating and extremely professional. They went above and beyond to help us make our wishes to return my Mother to Santa Monica happen. Without Captain Skip's help and guidance, we would not have been able to successfully fulfill her wishes in our time of need. I would also like to thank them for their guidance and alleviation of stress with the bureaucratic requirements that we were initially surprised with. It was a very beautiful experience.

Exceeded expectations

Professional, images didn’t do the boat justice. Service was A +. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

Scattering At Sea

Very solemn adventure, Skip & his assistant we’re very accommodating and understanding...look forward to another charter, for a happier occasion



An Intimate Send Off

The Legend hosted our family member's burial at sea. The staff was very considerate of the occasion and maintained the highest level of respect and compassion for all of our guests. They are very generous hosts and I'm extremely happy with the service they provided.

Great Day at Sea

We had a wonderful time aboard The Duchess. Anna was a great host and was so fast to get us drinks and food the whole time. Captain Skip tried hard to find us some whales, but was not the day for it, but we ended up seeing a ton of Dolphins which was great! It got a little bit choppy out there, but we loved having the blankets to sit on the cushions in the front and enjoy the scenery.

Holiday Party

Simply the BEST! Would do this again many times over. Was perfect!

It doesn’t get much better than a day trip on The Duchess with Capt. Skip. Truly professional.

World Class Service

I want to start by saying that this was the most amazing experience I've ever lived. Proposing at The Duchess was just incredible, we had everything we could hoped for, Skip and his assistant Anna made sure to make this event something memorable for the rest of our lifes. I'm truly grateful for this. I highly recommend The Duchess services if you plan to do something special at sea. You wont regret it.

Well-run and lovely experience

Skip and his team were pros. Food was of good quality and more generous than expected. Boat is as depicted. Will rehire.

Great time!

The captain and the crew of the Duchess exceeded our expectations. We had a great time and would definitely book them again!

Fantastic service

Our time on the Duchess was fantastic. We did an ashes scattering and Captain Steve and Officer Francisco could not have been nicer or more professional. I cannot recommend them any more highly.
