Sailor, from Seattle
My boyfriend and I had such an amazing time on Christian's boat! Not only was the sunset cruise perfect, but the boat was cozy and equipped with everything we needed - a comfortable bed, cold beer and breakfast in the morning! You can tell Christian is a special person with a love for what he does. We will most certainly be back!
Comfortable, friendly, and reliable. Another word: Otters. He even set up a Valentines day ballon and flowers. Very Nice.
This was our first time sleeping on a boat, and we really enjoyed the overall experience and feel of gentle waves lapping against the boat. Having coffee on deck at daybreak was wonderful. The salmon frittata we chose for breakfast was great. Although the barking of sea lions was noisy during the day, we didn't notice them during the night below deck with the hatch closed. Christian was very friendly and accommodating. Parking was no problem for us, but the lot closest to the slip might fill up at busy times of the year. We also took the 4:00 - 6:00 cruise on the boat. While it was a joy to be on the water, there was minimal wind so we couldn't sail; be forewarned that you will have a motoring cruise if there isn't enough wind.

This without a doubt was one of the best one night stays I have had in my 45 years of traveling the planet. Believe me I have stayed a lot of places but the sail along with the accommodations were so special. Captain Christian is the ultimate host and what a great captain at sea. We saw whales, dolphins, and a plethora of sea life. The sunset was OFF THE CHAIN!!! Not only would I recommend this to others… I will be back!!!!
Crhistian's yacht is amazing! Super clean and spacious (for a yacht). I felt like I was in a cozy living room. My favorite part was watching the sunrise on the front of the boat, and having sea otters and lions play around us in the bay! It was pretty surreal :)
Staying on Christian's beautiful boat was an unforgettable experience. First, Christian is a super friendly host, passionate about sailing! He showed us how the boat works, and made it very quick and easy to get settled. Not only that but he left us with a fresh crab caught just hours earlier, which made an excellent dinner. I'd highly recommend anyone who's into the fun and unusual to try this. It's nothing like any other place in Monterey, and waking up on the water is just super relaxing.
We had a wonderful time on the yacht. Our sunset sail was awesome, the weather was fantastic cool but nice and clear. We went to dinner at the Fishhopper and then spent the night on the boat. It was clean and quiet and Christian was a great host making us feel right at home.
Truly an experience to remember! Christian is so nice and thoughtful, we never had a worry during our stay. We boarded promptly for our sunset sail with another couple who had booked his charter. The weather was clear and sunny, and Christian even provided blankets for when it cooled down. When we got back we dropped the other couple off and Christian gave us the run down of the boat. We went to a great local restaurant suggested by Christian and came back to a warm and cozy cabin thanks to the space heater Christian provided. The next morning Christian came back with our delicious breakfast orders of eggs, bacon and potatoes (though you can get anything you want!) from a nearby deli, all included!
The boat is very clean and comfortable. My boyfriend is 6'5" and had no problem moving around or with the bed size. This is such a unique Airbnb stay and I would highly recommend it to anyone!
Thank´s Christian for a wonderful stay at your nice boat and thanks for the sailtrip! And so many whales we saw! Susannes crepes in the morning was the best crepes I ever have tasted. Say hello to the whalewatsher John from us. He was so nice. We love Monterey! Greetings from Anki and Totte in Sweden.
We did a sunset sail, left for dinner and came back to stay overnight on the yacht. It was incredible weather and Christian came through with everything as offered in the package and more!
I would recommend both to anyone who just wants to get away and do something besides the typical expensive hotel thing.
Christian made us feel extremely comfortable. We hope to come back with friends for another sunset sail or longer.
