We just got back from a night on the Sea Peeper. What can I say except totally awesome!!! The view was spectacular and you are right in the heart of Shoreline Village and all the fun. We got to look on a few of the other boats and out of them all, Id say Sea Peeper and Perfect landing would...

A most enjoyable, relaxing three day experience. We enjoyed sitting on the aft deck and waving to all the tourists as they went by on the tourist boats and watching all the other boats come & go along with a playful seal that would pop up here and there. Everyone seemed so friendly and it was a pleasure to meet...

We really enjoyed spending the weekend on this boat. It's a different experience than a traditional hotel - so I just wanted to note some Pros/Cons. It was great being directly on the water and we would stay again. I would probably not choose the Perfect Landing a second time because the chairs on the deck were uncomfortable and there...

We stayed on the Sea Peeper on the night of July 28th, 2012. This was a great experience. We were right in the middle of the action. Only a few minutes walk to the Aquarium of the Pacific. Tons of restaurants around. The ship was a bit dated, but very clean, and well stocked. There is a refrigerator and a...

This past winter, my wife clipped a New York Times article entitled "36 Hours in Long Beach, CA" in which Dockside was mentioned and booked us for two nights there - one of which was our fifth anniversary! Our stay on "Perfect Landing," one of the two boats whose stern faces the lighthouse, was really lovely. The vessel (a 42'...

Stayed here for two nights. It was an awesome experience. The boat had lots of room and we sat on the back to eat and enjoy snacks as we watched everyone on other boats go by. The staff is very friendly. You can take food to BBQ on the dock instead of eating at a restaurant. The morning breakfast is...

We had a nice cozy intimate night on board the yacht. They send over a tasty breakfast basket with fruit and muffins.I got a great deal through a living social type website, but would be happy to pay full price to enjoy the luxurious get away in the future.

The boat we stayed on was called the Ranita, We were very dissapointed,it smelled like mildew, and it was not very clean..Airfreshners were placed in the master bedroom along with a candle in the living areas..Sorry but they only masked the problem and made the smell worse...The boat needed a good deep cleaning. For the cost of the stay, we...

We are very sorry to hear that this guest did not enjoy her stay. We pride ourselves in providing a positive and unique experience to all of our guests. While we are confounded by the claim that there is mold everywhere in the boat, we really wish during her 2 night stay that she had alerted our staff of her...

I bought this deal way back in Septenber, and made my reservation for my 7th Wedding Anniversary, January 12, 2012. All things DO come to those who wait. I was so excited I was ALMOST afraid I would be let down. Fortunately, it was everything I had hoped for and more. I stayed on the Crown Jewel, a 50's retro-style...

We had a great time on the Perfect Landing ~ everything was clean and neat. Beautiful weather. We parked in the PF Chang's parking lot for $24 over night as it was closer to the dock. Upon arriving to our car the next morning, it had been broken into and personal items taken - nothing of great value as we...
