Wow! Where do I start! My first contact with UNIQ was with the lovely Regina. I say lovely because she explains everything so well. She is very patient , especially with me I was a first time Charter booking person. She made it so seamless and easy. Even once booked she was available at all times for any question or concern I would have, and I had a lot. Babies, kids, older people, parking ... I had a lot to ask her about ! Day or night she responded.
We choose the Leight Star as to us it was the largest and so impressive. We went to see the boat and Mario showed us around. Mario is with the crew and has been for years - his enthusiasm and friendliness was a real testament for me. The boat is so spacious , modern, just lovely ! The boat is kept extremely clean, this was very important to us.
There are soooo many different areas to lounge in. Indoor or outdoor you and your guests will feel you are in your own magical world. And so much space each guest can be in their very own space if that's what they want.
Now for the day of. We had direct contact with Captain Bob who is beyond generous with his time in explaining things. It is so evident he loves what he does, and he genuinely wants all on board to have a good time.
We had kids of board which I'm sure some may frown upon, as it's more work for sure. However Captian Bob was so happy to have kids, mentioning how great it is to expose these little young minds to the sea.
The crew is unbelievable. Vicky and Anna gave us such a warm welcome and went above and beyond to make sure all were comfortable and safe throughout our journey.
David and Mario were also on deck they were so helpful, and made us felt at ease at all times. Even when we had a bit of stronger currents, they were right there !
We went with the companies recommendation for the Chef and Katheryne didn't disappoint. We planned the menu a few weeks in advance. I actually wasn't expecting too much but we were blown away! The dishes, the flavors , wow wow wow! I think some people had the best tacos of their life on board , and also the best steak too. We had a few food restrictions and allergies and she was very accommodating. Everything was so delicious , and fresh, and of high quality.
The actual charter was so lovely. It was a great time and the memories formed will last a lifetime. The family and friends we treated to this experience are STILL talking about it. I don't think they will ever stop.
We enjoyed it so much that we booked for the next weekend AND and we have another planned too.
The captain and crew treat the boat as if it's their own home, it's so obvious it's such a well cared for environment.
My family will charter this boat a few times a year from now on. My only regret... living in town for so long, why hadn't we done this sooner ?!
Thank you to Regina, Captian Bob and all the incredible crew for making our experiences so special , so memorable , so incredible. You are all so much apart of our experiences and we are so grateful.
Dreaming of the next trip...
We booked a charter for Saturday during Labor Day weekend and it was AMAZING! Our captain, George, was knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating. We booked a later 4 hr trip so we were able to see the sunset.
We will definitely be booking with UNIQ again! And, requesting Capt George again!!!
Wow this was a fabulous excursion. My hubby Dennis set everything up with the owner Dmitry. He's a class act!! He actually took the call himself, answered all our questions and walked us through the process. We chose the 70 foot UNIQ Johnson Yacht and it was everything it said it was. Actually looks better than the pictures. I was impressed!! We were a group of 12 adults and the yacht was beautiful and spacious. Upon arriving crew member Regina met us on deck. Once on board we met Captain Kyrie and another crew member Bianca. After a short briefing explaining the trip by our captain off we went. After about an hour out we docked and some of us went swimming. YAY!! Captain Kyrie, the crew members Regina and Bianca were very helpful and fun to be around. We couldn't ask for a nicer crew. It felt amazing out there on the water and to get away for a few hours. Everyone had an incredible time and we can't wait to do it again. Thank you Dmitry!! It was a great escape.
I must say this was such an amazing experience. From the moment I reached out to get information about booking until the end of the trip. They were extremely responsive and strive for quality service. The yacht was clean and spacious, the crew was professional and friendly. I will definitely be booking with them again in the future and recommend using their services. Thank you for making my husband's bday unforgettable.
Man, oh, man. I can NOT thank Dmitry enough for saving what was a disastrous day!
A few days ago, I booked a yacht with a different company (who shall not be named because I'm nice) in the same marina and they left us literally stranded on the dock because neither our point of contact or captain was reachable. And yes, we were on time. They ended up cancelling our booking, so my friends and I frantically started looking for another company.
As Yelp always does, it came through for us. We found UNIQ Charters and they answered my call by the 2nd ring. Dmitry was on the other side of the line and listened as I explained our situation to him and he was SO understanding. In a matter of 5 minutes, he was able to find us a yacht that met our needs! It ended up being the same yacht model we booked with the first company but for a much cheaper price! Granted, the closest slot was 2 hours later but the first company couldn't even accommodate us with another time at all! Between the first call and the time of our trip, I called Dmitry about 5 times with questions because we wanted to make sure the load we had with us was acceptable on the boat. We had alcohol, snacks, decorations (for my friend's birthday), and floaties (but didn't get a chance to use them). But for all 5 calls, Dmitry was patient and responsive. When we met up with him, he even helped carry our beer! What a guy!
All 6 of us had an absolutely fantastic time partying, drinking, and dancing. The birthday girl was ecstatic! Oh, and captain Patti was great, too! She wasn't strict with anything at all.
I would DEFINITELY book with this company again.
Special thanks to Dmitry for setting up our yacht trip around the Marina !! It was my mom birthday and it was kinda last moment request . Dmitry was able to provide us exactly what we wanted and what we was looking for! He also recommended us the best timing to cruise around, of course it was Sunset! Yacht was clean and in great condition! They even had complimentary snacks and water for us! ) different choice of music, cable to connect your smartphone and play your own music if you want ! Good times,great hospitality!
We rented UNIQ's 60' yacht for my wife's birthday and was not let down. Dmitry and his team were extremely accommodating to all our request and Everything went great. The captain Bobby was very professional and made sure everyone had a great time. Definitely would recommend if you're looking to charter a yacht in LA.
Uniq Charters gave us an amazing experience. I rented a yacht for my boyfriends 30th Birthday and the yacht was perfect. The captain and everyone were awesome and really nice to us. I would def rent from them again!!!
5 stars isn't enough. I booked the 30 foot yacht for my birthday and it was by far one of the best times we have all ever had! We were able to bring all our own appetizers and bottles of champagne. They were extremely accommodating and friendly, our captain was so helpful! A boat full of girls and he had no problem helping us around the boat and taking tons of pics of course! Couldn't be happier and I'm excited for the next birthday because we will definitely be using them again!
Fantastic, exciting, stress free experience! Communication before the date was prompt and clear, the yacht was in great shape, staff was super helpful. We had a lovely time. I would definitely recommend UNIQ Charters!
UNIQ Charters was a smooth and flawless experience. Dmitry was beyond helpful and very responsive. The Yacht was magnificent and breath taking. Our Captain and Crew mate did an excellent job, helped out whenever needed, and took service to the next level. I would highly recommend UNIQ Charters to anyone. It will be a memory we will never forget!!
This was my first time going on a trip in this wonderful UNIQ SUNDANCER yacht and the experience was speechless. I enjoyed a lot! Overall we had a great time! I will definitely book it again with my friends. Thanks for providing such as great service. Extremely delighted!
My daughter (she's just 3 years old) loves to act and we were thinking of trying into the modeling industry and as a mother, I wanted to give her a perfect start. We had the best photoshoot on the yacht. Everything was professional and the photos were extremely stunning. Can't wait to hire them again!
Where do I start? I decided to do my proposal on a yacht and started looking around for the best available options. As soon as I spoke with Dimitri at UNIQ Charters I knew I had a winner. He was very clear and thorough about the pricing and hours. I went out to check the yacht and he was there to greet me and show me around. The captain was an awesome guy and made our trip very enjoyable. The proposal went even better than I had planned and it's all thanks to the amazing yacht I was able to rent. The yacht was very clean and looked brand new. I will refer all my friends and family to use UNIQ Charters in the future and once you try them you will without a doubt agree with me and do the same.
Great experience and Dmitry was really helpful! Would definitely do again
Even if you can't book online same day shoot him a text and he might be able to do it.
