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.

A+ Fishing charter

The guys from The Duchess were awesome! The vessel is beautiful, they had everyone out catching fish in no time, being as accommodating and friendly as possible throughout the whole trip. I'd highly recommend them to anyone looking for a day cruise mixed with some great local fishing.

50th Birhday Celebration

We had a wonderful very memorable party on The Legend. Skip, Michelle and the whole crew were truly amazing - nothing was too much to make our night perfect! Many many thanks

A perfect day

Thank you Skip and the Legand crew for the perfectly beautiful enviornment you provided to say our good-byes to our loved one at sea. Your hospitality and sensitivity were so appreciated - we couldn’t have been in better hands.

Celebrating Pop’s 77th Birthday

Our experience on The Legend was AWESOME and one that our family will be talking about for a long time. The service of the Capt. and Crew was World Class! We actually caught 99 Fish! (However, 3 of them were lost at sea.) I would HIGHLY recommend Duchess Yacht Charters for your next event, we will definitely use them again!

Amazing Day

Captain Skip and his crew made a cloudy day into something special. They went above and beyond our expectations. Great day with good friends!!

Exceeded expectations

It started with an on-time arrival, a lox breakfast and smiling crew. The crew of three picked up the sardines and we were off. On the journey out we ate and drank --a great breakfast. Stopped for some great fishing and then had lunch. After lunch, we fished some more and caught some more. The yacht is in great shape and the crew is truly awesome. We will definitely be going again. We did an all day and it was worth every penny.

We had a great day on The Dutchess going to Catalina Island. The boat was beautiful. Skip and his crew answered all our questions and made the day for my family a great experience.

Everyone kind and respectful. Would definitely recommend for scattering ashes at sea.

The Legend

We, 20 family and friends, had a fabulous time celebrating my son’s 15th birthday aboard the gorgeous Legend. The boat, the captain and the crew were wonderful. Everything was perfect! Looking forward to another experience in the future.

My Mom’s Memorial

We chartered the Legend on 8/12/18 for our mother's memorial service to scatter her ashes at sea. We could not have chosen a better way to honor her final wishes. The boat was huge and better than we could have imagined and staff were wonderful. They took care of our every need and served great appetizers and wine. We were all so impressed. I would highly recommend this company to anyone who’s looking to do a memorial at sea, or a pleasure cruise.

Amazing Yacht, Amazing Service, Amazing Time!!!

Wow... I felt like we were on one of those TV shows where we are being taken care of like a celebrity!! The entire crew from the Captain to the Servers were top notch. Professional, super friendly, always there a minute before you needed them and with attention to safety and security that allowed us to relax and truly enjoy. Really wonderful and memorable experience!!!

Lasting Impression!

Where do I start? Our experience with The Legend was unforgettable. I had the idea to celebrate my father's 55th birthday on a Yacht about 4 days before his actual birthday. The team at The Duchess Yacht Charters was incredibly easy to work with and made the experience of booking so last minute stress-free. Our captain and crew were fantastic, accommodating and made the experience so much fun for my family and me. We loved The Legend and my dad had the best 55th birthday. Thank you Duchess team for an incredible experience!

Amazing Experience!

We took a small group of clients out on the Duchess and had the absolute best time. The boat is immaculate and Skip and his crew are top notch! Can't think of a better way to spend the day on the California Coast and will certainly be back again one day!

Great day at sea

My family and I had a fabulous and memorable day with Captain Skip and his amazing crew on the Dutchess. Highly recommend you book. You won’t be disappointed!

An awesome day at sea

I rented The Legend to celebrate my birthday with my 11 girlfriends. The captain and stewardess were friendly and helpful. The yacht was clean and comfortable and pictures defiantly didn’t do it justice. The front of the boat was big enough for all of us to lay out and relax as well as take lots of scenic pictures. We were free to have fun and didn’t have to worry about anything all day. The stewardess Michelle was attentive at refilling our drinks and replenishing snacks. The highlights of the day included seeing a pod of dolphins and jumping in the ocean from the boat. All in all it was an epic way to spend my birthday. My only negative critique was that the speakers on the boat didn’t work and so we had to use a small portable speaker which was a bummer considering how expensive the excursion was. Other than that it was a perfect day and I would definitely take The Legend out in the future. All my friends were very impressed and I shared the contact info with them to use The Legend for their next event.
