We had a fantastic time aboard the catamaran with captain Oscar. It was a little windy and rough but the boat handled it very well. The drinks were strong and the sound system was great. We really enjoyed luring the dolphins close with some loud AC/DC.... who knew they were loyal fans of rock and roll. The whole experience was... More

My wife and I, along with another couple took the three hour sunset cruise aboard the Del Mar catamaran. It has a capacity of 18 persons max and our trip only had 12 people on board. The Captain quickly covers the safety procedures to follow during the trip, explains the events to follow and lets you know to make yourself... More

What a great time ! Captain Oscar was so awesome, very entertaining telling us about the area, giving us tips on restaurants and other things to do during our 10 day stay. We were so lucky to have a private cruise with just us and our friends since it was a Tuesday ! Oscar had a port for our music... More

We booked the sunset cruise through Del Mar Charters after reading the great reviews. We were not disappointed. Oscar and his crew did a great job of making sure everyone had a great time. Sailing back was a special treat. We will definitely recommend this to out friends .

Captain Oscar .... YOU ARE THE BEST! I have done a lot of sunset cruises in my day, but this one was extra special. Of course with it just being us 4 friends on the boat on a Tuesday evening made it feel like we were ON TOP OF THE WORLD! We loved the music, the beer, the crews attentiveness,... More

The best! Captain Oscar is a dream. He is very knowledgeable, funny, attentive and happy with his job. We did the sunset cruise and were not disappointed. See the posted pictures. When we come back for whale watching we will hook up with Oscar and DelMar!!!

It is always fun to be with Capt. Oscar. He is knowledge, fun and always amazing. Thanks Oscar for the experiences. The sunset cruise is about 3 hours much more than the others.

If you want to do some snorkeling, spend some time on the water and swim with the Sea Lions, Go See Captain Oscar at Del Mar. Very conscientious and friendly! They use a smaller, FASTER boat so you spend more time at Bird Island and less time traveling. Also, you get a more personalized experience as there are never more... More

We absolutely loved it. (FYI, I'm an old boat-yard rat who started life as a yatching service provider in Ft. Lauderdale back in the 80's. Not easily impressed, but Capt. Oscar did). Natalia was very helpful on our walk-in booking, and we had no issues with our bill or e-mailed in oice. Tempo is a catamaran rated for up to... More

What a nice sunset cruise. First boat out and last back. Comfortable catamaran provided a smooth ride. Margaritas and cervezas to wet your whistle offered by an attentive crew. Captain Oscar is the best at entertaining his guests and made this an enjoyable time. Be ready to swim if you choose and they have floats and easy access into and... More
