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.

August 18

Captain Skip and crew have really given us an event to remember. We booked a half day fishing trip... to start with Skip was thorough in making sure we were clear on instructions and expectations. He arrived right on time, and we got every minute out of the trip. Getting on board the Duchess, you really feel comfortable and prepare your mind for a great time. Beautiful Inside, and beuatiful chairs in the front for the sunbathers. We made our way out to the fishing, and we were on the fish in a out 20 minutes. Tuna wrent rinning so we were just pulling up rockfish, but we caight about 20-25 in 2-3 hours. Then came the mako shark!!! That was fun, but obviously we had to let it go. They just made it perfect. We will be back!

Fishing Trip with the Duchess

What an AMAZING day we had! The boys fished off the back whilst we sunbathed on the front of the boat! The service was amazing my drink was constantly full, the food was lovely! Beautiful boat and lovely staff! Thank you so much!

Beyond 5 Stars

Skip and his crew are amazing to work with, and the Legend yacht is spectacular. It is very well appointed and the details and upkeep are impeccable. The Legend is an elegant and classic Cris Craft yacht that has been restored to perfection. Our group had a great time cruising outside the Marina Del Rey harbor and the inner port after sunset. The crew is very attentive, fun and engaging. The food and alcohol that were included in our package were top notch. We highly recommend this company and the yachts they have for charter. We can't wait for our next trip!!

Amazing time aboard the Duchess!

Skip and his crew took my guests and I out for an amazing day of fishing! They couldn't of been nicer and the boat was beautiful! Everyone had a blast! Can't wait to do it again!

Fireworks, Food & Fun aboard The Duchess

The 4th of July also happens to be my birthday, so we figured why not bring some friends and head out for a sunset dinner cruise on the Pacific and end the night floating a short but safe distance from the fireworks barge in Marina Del Rey for a front row seat. Why not indeed! The evening was perfect, and Capt Skip and his crew took such good care of us. The food was fabulous and the views were stunning. Highly recommended.

Burial at Sea aboard The Duchess Yacht-first class operation

Three of us came from out of state to fulfill our loved ones wishes to be laid to rest out on the water out of Marina Del Ray. The mortuary had us set with a 32ft sailboat-but I found The Duchess online and booked this beautiful, classy 65ft yacht. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!! Dignified, respectful way to go-captain and first mate were thoughtful and accomodating...just the best given the circumstances.

Birthday Trip aboard the Dutchess

Great time the crew was great the service was excellent. I enjoyed every bit my guest were happy and my husband loved it! I would definitely do it again. It was a great time we caught fish, ate well, drank well. What more can I say rent the Dutchess with Skip and crew you won’t be disappointed!! 😊

Perfect 4th of July!

We had a great time aboard of The Duchess last 4th of July, I took my family for fishing time and everyone enjoy the day. The yatch is awesome!! they bring food and drinks.... it was the best day of my vacations in California! For sure we will see Captain Skip and his crew again in our next trip to CA. Thanks so much Captain.

Vacation Highlight

This yacht was the highlight of our 4th of July. It was a great activity for both the LA locals and out of town guests. When one of our guests was running late, they had no problem waiting, and just started the fun while we were docked. Skip and the entire crew at The Duchess Yacht Charters were incredible! They were always wandering the yacht, making sure everyone had a refreshment in hand. They handled everything we brought on board with care. Not to mention, the food was fresh and delicious, including a nice spread of fruit, meats, and fish, something for everyone! The ride itself was beautiful and scening, everyone able to catch up, dance, and enjoy the ride. When we stopped out at sea, we had a blast jumping in the water and cooling off. Cannot recommend this enough, and so looking forward to the next one!

Cruising with Skip

Our family of 6 had a fantastic day cruising with Skip. It was easy to arrange, and boom, we are out in the water enjoying a beautiful day. Skip and Ana made us feel totally at home and relaxed. There is nothing that could have made it better, all great! We will be doing it again soon. Thanks so much!
