I booked this with Katrin and we were not disappointed! This was a sunset cruise for 8 adults as a surprise birthday present. Due to high winds, we had to stay closer to shore, but we really didn't mind it. Katrin prepared apps and a delicious rum punch for everyone. We also added a small birthday cake and champagne toast... More

Katrin was very accommodating and she has fantastic communication skills. Plus her cooking skills are the bomb! Captain JJ did a great job making sure everyone made it back to the boat after snorkeling. The only negative was the marina where the boat stays is very industrial. But thinking if we had more time would have sailed to a more... More

From the booking process through the final goodbye's Katrin was a joy to work with. She and her captain (JJ) made sure we felt we were out sailing with friends as opposed to being customers. The boat itself is beautiful, clean, and extremely well maintained. The food and drinks far exceeded our expectations in terms of quality (and quantity). They... More

We had a great time on the Morning Star today. We had an early lunch tour with snorkeling and swimming. We left a little earlier because the weather was supposed to get windy so they were letting us know days in advance of how the weather would be and we shifted the departure time based on that. That shows they... More
