    Mark was full of positive energy and so much fun to be around! My family & I truly enjoyed having him as our boat Captain! Mark was even gracious enough to take us out for drinks after, first round on him! We all enjoyed one another so much that we made plans to meet up again next month! You can trust that Mark is very experienced & knows his stuff! He knew the perfect spot to release my mother’s cremation remains and truly helped make the experience special. He also had an assistant on the boat who was phenomenal and also so much fun! I am forever grateful to the both of them!

    We had a great time with Captain Mark! Two of us were experienced Sailors, and the other three in our party were looking forward to a sailing experience.

    Due to what was referenced as issues with the weather, we ended up doing a eight hour boat ride of the Intracostal waterway via motor, rather than sail.

    We had different expectations.

    Thanksgiving Day sail with Captain Mark was amazing! He was very entertaining and also educated us on sailing terms and practices. We will be back!

    Captain Mark was great. He helped us have a wonderful send off for my father in law’s ashes and suggested a route that included some sandbar time, which the 5 little kids on board enjoyed greatly. He gave the older kids opportunities to learn a thing or two about sailing, and be ready for conversation as he enjoyed telling us a lot about the homes, boats and history around us and anything else that came up! We made some good memories :)

    Captain Mark was SO great! My family and I had a wonderful time with him on his boat. He is super friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating.

    This trip is a great value for the price! We really appreciated his precision in timing for the drawbridges, so we didn't waste any time waiting for the openings.

    HIGHLY recommend - would definitely do this trip again if I find myself in the area.

    I enjoyed my time with Captain Mark. He’s a very good communicator and has an extreme love for his craft. Very personable, was bummed we didn’t get to stay out later as he mentioned on our call prior to the tour. Also, didn’t get to see some of the places we were told we would see. All in all still a solid experience.

    Our trip on The Naked Truth with Captain Mark was exactly what we were looking for. We had two young children so wanted a relaxing trip with comfortable accommodations. The boat and captain provided everything we were looking for and more. We can't wait for the next opportunity to sail on The Naked Truth again!
