"Captain Bergel has a strong background in many aspects of boating, engines, navigation and seamanship, as well as much offshore experience. He delivered our boat from Hawaii to San Francisco with the same care and handling as if it were his own. He made many repairs and gave us valuable feedback about the condition of the boat with a quick mini-survey. We are very satisfied with his performance. He is pleasant and professional. We will certainly use his service again."
- HENRY GONZALEZ, JUNIPER NETWORKS, MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA
"Captain Bergel delivered Venture, my Jeanneau 49 SO, from Oahu to San Francisco this summer. I am completely impressed by his professionalism, capabilities, and attention to detail. He treated my boat with the same exemplary care and consideration that I do. I am a completely satisfied customer and strongly recommend him to anyone looking for the best delivery service available. I would trust my treasured boat to Eric without hesitation for any future deliveries I may need!"
- MICHAEL CHOBOTOV, TRIVASCULAR TECHNOLOGIES, SANTA ROSA, CA
"I have twice contracted Captain Bergel for the delivery of my Hans Christen 48 foot sailing yacht ‘Cecilie’ between Mexico and British Columbia. I will not hesitate to contact him in the future as I have complete confidence in his abilities and character."

"I first met Eric when he was delivering a vessel from California to Costa Rica. He and his crew had just crossed the gulf of Tehauntepec, and they were taking a short rest before continuing on. Given the way in which they were taking care of the sailboat they arrived on, washing the decks and sails etc., I was a bit surprised to learn that they were actually a delivery crew. I made sure to get Eric’s contact information in case I ever needed assistance moving my sailboat. The following year, Eric delivered my vessel from southern Mexico to California, in less than ideal conditions for much of the trip. I sailed with Eric and his crew for a couple days at the beginning, and I was quite impressed with his knowledge of sailing and navigation, as well as his calm, cautious approach. Eric does not take unnecessary risks or make hasty decisions. He also is capable when it comes to repairing or improvising critical systems on the fly, if necessary. Most delivery Captains will claim this ability, but they don’t all have it."
- JAMES MCGOVERN, SPECTOR ROSEMAN KODROFF & WILLIS, P.C. NEW HAMPSHIRE
"During his employment with Humboldt Bay Harbor Cruise, Captain Bergel has proven to be an honest, dedicated, sociable, dependable and most capable operator of our vessels.
