A memorable San Diego Birthday Party Location

The Zumbrota was more than the icing on the cake!!! The party was amazing, the guests were all very impressed with the boat and the crew and the beauty of it all and we all had the best time ever. My kids had a wonderful wedding and priceless memories thanks in large part to you. I can hardly say thank you enough for being so kind to my family and me. Your attention to detail and all that you did made the day very easy for me to just relax and have a great time ... which I did for sure!!!
