Tide Chaser is Jen and Tyler's first boat.
During my time in San Diego, I was lucky to join Tyler and Jen aboard the Tide Chaser for an evening cruise. My friends and I don't have enough great things to say about Tyler and this cruise! So much fun and something I hope to do again!
This was a magnificent getaway. The Tide Chaser is in immaculate condition and is perfect for a trip out on a Saturday. The cabin is spacious and the kitchen is very accommodating. You could not get a cooler person to man the ship for you than Tyler. He is well versed in the ways of the sea and has many San Diego stories to tell you while on your journey out and back. If I could book the Tide Chaser and Tyler every weekend of the year I without a doubt would.
