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.

Perfect day aboard The Duchess!

Captain Skip was a pleasure from booking to sailing...the staff aboard the boat made it a perfect, relaxing day of boating, sightseeing and fishing. Caught lots of fish which they filleted for us and sent home...We had a beautiful breakfast, lunch and fresh fruit plate snack served to us over the course of the day, by Anna who was a delight! Five star all the way, will definitely book again!


Skip and his crew did a fantastic job. Thank you!!!

Family Outing on the Dutchess

I called Skip with the Dutchess and had a last minute request to book a sunset cruise and overnight. His communication was great, had me a price and itinerary very quickly and we stayed in touch via text prior to arrival. The yacht was amazing and crew friendly and accommodating. I can’t say enough good things about the experience. My kids and I made a memory that will last a lifetime.

excellent service

Captain Skip and his crew provide excellent service in a welcoming environment. I would definitely recommend. Thanks Captain Skip!

Incredible Service & Experience with this company!!

We booked the Duchess Yacht Charters through Skip who was absolutely incredible! I reached out initially to find out details when planning my brothers memorial at sea. Skip followed up with me within minutes each time I called and could not have been kinder. The day of his memorial the team that met us for the memorial was professional, extremely friendly and compassionate in dealing with every detail. I highly recommend them, knowing they would handle any occasion in the same manner. I’m sorry we met under these circumstances but so thankful they were there to help my family and friends send my brother off. An incredible experience during a very difficult time.

Scattering of Ashes

Our family was aboard The Legend October 25, 2018 for a cruise out to Catalina to celebrate the life of our late father. We had an amazing time. The Captain and Crew were absolutely delightful and catered to our every need. They were unbelievably accommodating as well as courteous. The yacht is stunning and comfortable no matter where you decide to enjoy the ride. We will definitely see Captain Skip and his crew again in the near future.

Highest Recommendation

I booked The Duchess for a sunset cruise to celebrate my birthday, and this experience truly exceeded my expectations. From the outset, Skip was easy to communicate with and gave great recommendations on when to schedule the cruise, where to go, etc. The boat itself was clean, luxurious and fully stocked with seemingly unlimited food and alcohol. Captain Skip and his stewardess, Anna, were also the perfect hosts: they let us do our own thing but were right there if we needed anything at all. I can't wait to book another excursion with them in the future! 5 stars.

Fantastic memorial service on a beautiful yacht. The boat was gorgeous, the crew outstanding and the amenities were first class.

Exceeded my expectations.
