Will Schmidt Stand Up Paddle Adventure from Canada to Mexico

Paradiso was excited to be a part of Will Schmidt Areyouinspiredyet.com stand up paddle adventure from Canada to Mexico benefiting Wounded Warrior Project.

Will Schmidt’s family and friends were aboard Paradiso today supporting his adventure. Will Schmidt is on the home stretch and he has a lot of friends for the last few legs of his epic journey.

Today he paddled from Huntington Beach to Dana Point with friends and family supporting him along the way. Omar Simsek organized the trip and will be a flotilla as we cruise along the coast with him towards Dana Point.

Pontoon Rentals In Newport Beach Harbor

This year is a year of expansion for Paradiso Yacht Charters.

We have decided to expand into the Pontoon rental business. The goal is to leverage from what we have learned about customer service, in the yacht chartering business, to the Newport Harbor rental business. We have recently launched www.BoatsRentalsNewportBeach.

This business is focused on providing a service to those who want to enjoy the harbor, at a very reasonable price. This is an opportunity to captain your own boat. We now have several top of the line “Avalon” Pontoon Boats for your enjoyment. We believe that the current duffy rental market will be replaced by the pontoons. Who would want to rent a Duffy when you can rent a Pontoon for the same price? Therefore, our mission is to provide a high level of service, at the same price as our competitors in the pontoon and duffy business. Our objective is to offer a level of service that is second to none. Our pontoons offer amenities that no one else in the harbor offers. We have installed electric marine toilets, which may not sound like much now but, you will thank us later. It is an extension of understanding customer expectations, and ensuring the focus is on your comfort and enjoyment of your harbor cruise.

Kudos To Paradiso Yacht Charters

We recently got an email from a client who enjoy his time on Paradiso. We blushed from the kind words and had to share it with the world.

Dear Vanessa,

First and foremost, I wanted to take a moment to say “Thank you” for all the hospitality received during our visit with your Crew.

Again, everyone was extremely pleased how our event turned out. We talked about the level of service provided all the way up to the owner who was a real Gentleman. Thank you again for all your hospitality Vanessa and in turn I have referred you to a Leader in our Company who has asked for your information. I hope it works out. I still plan to book again for December, lets stay in touch.
