Georgie and Harry, North Hampton, UK - Sept 12
I love a road trip to Central Coast Wine Country more than most. However, that's not always an option when I'm stressed and in need of a relaxing change. Put me on the Ohana Pacific with Amos as captain and Shari as first mate and my experience will always be first rate! The champagne, spectacular scenery, and ebullient conversation is the cherry on the cake of my day. Thanks for being such spirited company and for the kindness and generosity each and every time. This is the way to "Stay-Cation"!
Chrissa Chase, San Diego, Ca - Aug 12
It has been quite a great pleasure being here as guests on your yacht. The entire scene from booking on-line all the way till the end of check out was great! The hospitality you both showed my husband and I was awesome. The comfort of the yacht and it's location, perfect. The sight seeing on our cruise was definitely worth tearing ourselves outside the yacht. All together, the whole experience...unforgettable. Thank you, thank you Amos for your awesome vision and sharing it with others, including us. We will definitely be coming back with our friends and share this experience with them as well. Until then, take care and see you soon
Ramon and Chrystal Nunez - Aug 12
The memory that has been created for me and my kids the last few days has been one we will cherish for a very long time. Your gracious hospitality has been most appreciated. The yacht has been amazing and the cruise was terrific. So unique, so special, so incredible!! Thank you so much for a fantastic time. We will be back!
Lynn Petit and family, Tucson, Az - July 12
The yacht was an awesome experience! It was so relaxing. This opportunity made my first trip to San Diego amazing! Thank you for letting us know about all the wonderful places around town.
Amanda, Andrew, Tyler and Kyle, Phoenix, Az - Apr 12
How special to have stayed on your yacht for our 39th anniversary. It truly made this anniversary memorable and look forward to cruisin' again with you this coming spring / summer! It gave us a small glimpse on "Dock" side living, something we contemplate in retirement just around the corner. We really felt we "got away from it all"!
Chris and Brian, Canyon Lake, Ca. - Mar 12
What a wonderful and memorable honeymoon you helped provide us on the amazing Ohana Pacific! I couldn't have dreamed of a more wonderful experience then we had. Your yacht is amazing and beautiful and provided us the private retreat we were looking for. Your hospitality and accommodations are better than any hotel I have ever stayed at. The sunset cruise was magical and something I would never tire of doing in a hundred years! We will surely be back to enjoy this wonderful treat again. I was touched at how very kind you both were to us and helpful when questions came up.
Rachel and David Groben, Tucson, Az - Mar 12
This was the most amazing surprise and marriage proposal a girl could ask for, and it was all possible because of you two. You have made this the most memorable experience ever! Thank you so much for participating in our big day! We will make sure to send you some wedding pictures.

Sasha Robert, San Diego, Ca. - Jan 12
So glad we chose to stay on board the Ohana Pacific for our second visit to San Diego. We've all had a great time... Such a unique holiday experience. We'll be taking many special memories home with us.
Susan, John, Hannah & Jared Markey, Barnsley, South Yorkshire, England - Dec 11
When Lori found your yacht, I said, "This is too cool not to do". Chris and I have been to San Diego many times in the last 25 years but this is the one thing we've never done. Very unique experience. Lori is celebrating a birthday this month and Chris & I have been together 25 years as of the 22nd. We didn't come specifically for the occasion but it has quite a memorable trip anyway. Possibly the best weather we've ever had at this time of year and what better place to enjoy the sunrise and sunset than your beautiful yacht.
Theresa & Chris Zerohesto, Arizona - Nov 11
Thanks so much for having us on your beautiful yacht. It was relaxing and both of you are excellent hosts. I would recommend your luxury services to everyone. We'll definitely be back!
Braviea - Oct 11
Our 2nd visit was just as hospitable as the first. The cruise was exceptional. We especially admired the history lesson that accompanied the cruise. our compliments and sincere thanks to you and your family.
Elena & Tom Cheney, New Jersey - Sept 11
Thanks so much for the beautiful accommodations for our 25th wedding anniversary! Loved all of it!
Alan & Anne Thornton, Arizona - Aug 11
We are so so glad that a last minute change of heart over a hotel booking brought us here. This has been so much fun, and we have been so comfortable. John has enjoyed plane spotting, the girls have enjoyed all the DVD’s, and I have enjoyed “just sitting”. (oh …and the fab shower!) thank you for the cruise, and for making this possible.
Sue, John, Rebecca & Clare Ashworth, Buckinghamshire, England - Aug 11
Thank you so much for not just the pleasant experience in America’s finest, but for the hospitality and caring that adds so much to the experience. Your interest in us as people and our own experiences, make you special.
Jim Brunner & family, San Diego, Ca. - Aug 11
We had a great time cruising the bay and open ocean last night with you and the Crosby’s. The experience of cruising with the dolphins jumping in the wake over the bow was incredible. We were literally over the top of these wild dolphins, watching them from just a few feet away. Then, docking to go for a nice dinner at Peohes restaurant and watching the fireworks show over the bay from our table with the city as our back drop was fantastic!
Craig, Stacy & Izabel, Scottsdale, Arizona - July 11
Wow – where do we start…Fantastic, Relaxing, Just what we all needed!! We all found a part of San Diego that all loved. The Ohana Pacific was pure joy to reside on, and to relax on. The Fourth of July fireworks was something we will all remember forever. Thank you for our trip out to view them and the tour. Wonderful! We plan on seeing you again in the future.
Jim & Lavina Platt, Alyson Platt (soon to be Butcher) & Tim Butcher, Yuma, Arizona - July 11
We had a great time and can’t wait to do it again! Beats hotel staying any day! You have an incredible setup and have inspired us to pursue our own dreams even more. What a fun way to spend a surprise birthday weekend!
John & Shonda, Peoria, Arizona - June 11
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the absolutely wonderful accommodations on this boat. This has been the best idea we’ve had in a very long time! The Ohana Pacific feels like my second home and you are so lucky to have it. The memories that my husband and I will take with us will be for most the yacht and our stay aboard it. Thank you for allowing us to share your home and we’re gratetful for your hospitality. No goodbyes here! I’ll say “til we see each other again”.
Mr and Mrs Paul DiNielli - May 11
Thank you for the beautiful yacht & sunset cruise. My husband set this up for our anniversary celebration and he kept it a surprise the whole time. I was truly surprised by all of it! I love the serene and relaxing feeling the yacht provides and the exciting and adventurous sunset sail it produces. Thank you for making our special celebration such a delight!
Sally & Murray, Poway, Ca. - Apr 11
This experience gives new meaning to the word “WOW”. Your warm welcome made us feel like family. We had a wedding to go to in El Cajon. We decided to take the Ohana Pacific instead of the car. “Just Kidding”. We will for sure be back. You’re the best!
Tom & Elena Cheney – New Jersey and Linda Somma & George Aromin – Redondo Beach, CA - Apr 11
We just got here, but I know it’s going to be a great stay! The sun shines on the water and is so unbelievably pretty. We are from Colorado, so we are used to a whole different scenery. Temp is in the 80’s right now – we drove through snow on the way here! Well thank you for your kindness and everything provided here. It’s magnificent!
Hannah, Rachel & Suzie - Mar 11
A fantastic stay on a superb boat with wonderful hosts in Amos and Shari. We had a relaxing stay and even caught a few fish. Everything was absolutely first class and we shall be recommending the Ohana Pacific to all our friends back in the U.K.

Thank you so much for sharing you beautiful yacht with us. We could not have asked for a more beautiful trip. The weather was amazing and you did such a great job making us feel at home. The whale trip was incredible. You were so awesome to stick with it until we spotted some. It was truly a moment that none of us will ever forget.
Wayne & Janet - Jan 11
The weekend was amazing. Everything you said it would be and more. We really enjoyed the cruise and your tour commentary. This was a great way to turn 50!

Eric & Paula Casolo, Jorge & Cynthia Meda - Oct 10
Thank you for the wonderful tour & gracious hospitality!! The Ohana Pacific was such a pleasure. We're looking forward to coming back to this special location of our engagement.
Dallas & Janna - Sept 10
What a lovely weekend we've had! thanks for making Don's dream come true. Your yacht is beautiful, the cruise was wonderful and the weather perfect. Our only regret is that we didn't spend enough time aboard (to much to see in SD!) Thank you for making this special experience available and for your kindness.

What a day - my husband, a boat on San Diego Bay and amazing company. You made Russell's 42nd birthday so special. All I can say is I'm bringing the girls back for a Girls Night Out!
Yolande (Guest of WineSellar & Brasserie), San Diego, Ca - Jun 10
Thank you for sharing your "home on the water" with us! We had a wonderful time enjoying the water, air, and peacefulnes!! And, such a gorgeous and comfortable accomodations. It was a great break from the heat of the Sonora Desert and a wonderful ambience to spend time with our good friends!
Bob & Patty Boggs, Tucson, Arizona - Jun 10
Everything could not have been more spectacular. Amos was very accommodating and took care of every request or need that I made. The yacht was in great condition, very contemporary, and very clearn. It had every amenity you could ask for on a boat. We enjoyed every minute being on the Nani Ula and did not want to leave. It is truly an experience everyone should explore at least once in his/her life.
Vivian Howard, Atlanta, Georgia - Jun 10
Thank you for letting Alexandrea and Talia ride on the boat. We had a blast on the boat. I think it is very cool that you own two boats. Thank you! P.S. Thanks for a beautiful wedding too!
Heather & Mark Schander - May 10
We are visiting from Ottawa, Canada. As travellers, we wanted a relaxed experience of San Diego. Staying on your yacht was a real treat and helped make our vacation very memorable. You have a beautiful ship and we felt very much at home. Amos, your warm hospitality and cheer speaks very well of your business and San Diego!
Alison, Genevieve, and Gabriel, Ottawa, Canada - May 10

Thank you again for the wonderful time. We really enjoyed ourselves. The spectacular sunset was certainly a highlight. Have a great 2010.
Tony Pardi - Jan 10
Kathy and I spent my 50th Birthday aboard. Everything was smooth and essentially perfect. We have no negative feedback whatsoever. We cruised the harbor, used the Sheraton workout room, jacuzzi, restaurant and bar. We were pleased with a very nice breakfast the following morning. The accommodations were entirely comfortable. In fact we plan on returning and enjoying the experience again. We recommend Amos as a Good Captain of a nice vessel.
Greg & Kathy Good, Tucson, AZ - Nov 09
Thanks so much for everything! The look on my husband’s face when he found out he was going out on the boat was priceless. Our 20th anniversary cannot be topped, so I guess we will just keep coming back here! Everything was perfect!
Gary & Marianne Baxter - Sept 09
We feel like we are the privileged friends of a great couple who loaned us their yacht for a week. What a pleasant experience it was! The yacht is very nicely equipped and extremely comfortable. The tour of San Diego Bay was one of the many highlights of our week, made especially nice by the pleasure of your company. Thank you very much.
Todd & Sheryl Carlson, Richardson, TX - Aug 09
This was the most relaxing three days we have had in a long time. We forced ourselves to leave the boat. Enjoyed the cruise on the bay as well as the captain and first mate! Hope to be back again.
Randy and Rebecca Fulker & Serdar and Margaret Erdine, Monterey, CA - Aug 09
Our stay on your boat was unbelievable. Your hospitality was exemplary and I was especially impressed with your attention to detail to make our stay more memorable. Wow, that was an understatement. Let's try that again. In our 15 years of marriage, this anniversary trip tops them all. You should be be very proud of what you have accomplished in your business. You certainly understand people and you understand the meaning of making your customers happy. As I am sure you are aware, in our world today there is a definite void of what I call excellent customer service. You certainly found the right combination, including the followup after our stay. Good luck in the future and we will certainly pass on to our friends what a wonderful adventure we enjoyed and we will be back again.
Dick & Jacque Zinn - Jun 09

We had a great time aboard The Ohana Pacific! It was just as good as the first time. Thank you for your friendly hospitality. Hope to see you soon!
Bruce Mitchell, Breckenridge, CO - Feb 09
We have been home here now for about 2 weeks and believe me when I say "we had the best time in San Diego"! We really enjoyed our stay and we truly mean it when we say that meeting the three of you had a lot to do with it. You made our visit very comfortable and enjoyable, you really have a great thing going on there. When we left we felt like we not only had a great vacation but had made some really nice friends. We are attaching a few pictures of our visit and I hope you enjoy them. However, I really thought I had taken more the day we were out in the harbour. Anyway, I guess this only means we just have to visit again...
Laurie & Brian Watkins, St. Marie, Ontario - Jan 09

Thank you soooo much for the great “vacation” for our New Years Eve celebration! I don’t want to leave! The cruise was super fun with the fireworks show, too! Happy New Year to you both and we hope to do this again soon.

Linda E. - Sept 08

Thank you for a wonderful experience! The yacht is beautiful and exceeded our expectations. Everything we needed was provided and your hospitality was beyond exceptional. The cruise was incredible and was truly a highlight of the trip. Our kids didn't know about the yacht...we had wanted to surprise them. The looks on their faces when they saw where we would be staying was priceless - they'll be talking about it for a long time! Thanks for making our vacation so special...we will be telling everyone about The Ohana Pacific!
Greg, Susie, Chris & Brittany Hall, Richmond, VA - Aug 08

Ray & Barbara Hooper -  Tucson, AZ - Jan 08
Thank you for your hospitality during our stay, I have completed the guest review survey with glowing praise! I will tell my friends in Seattle and San Diego about our incredible stay. I also noted that your boat was worth a trip to San Diego. I didn’t mention your personal service, or gift of wine in the review so as not to obligate you to do the same for future guests. I do however want to thank you personally as it made our arrival feel very welcoming and warm. I would give the entire experience 5 stars!
Jeff & Ann Pace -  Covington, WA - Dec 07
We enjoyed our stay on your yacht immensely. Both MaryAnn and I being water lovers, enjoyed this as the perfect place to stay and relax. It was so nice to meet you and Annabelle, no hotel could compare to this retreat. Our anniversary is the 4th of July, if available, we would like to reserve.
Dean & MaryAnn Bloyer - Half Moon Bay, CA - Oct 07
I just wanted to say "thanks" for the day yesterday. Besides a birthday celebration it was a day that created a great memory for my entire family. So again - THANK YOU....
