My wife and I had done some pretty extensive research on wedding venues for more than 2 years in advance of our wedding date. We had a few places picked out that were within our budget range, but they fell through, and we had been trying without much luck to secure a venue that fit our budget and our standards. We were about to “settle” for something when we came across Fantasea via Google searches and other wedding websites.
From the very start, Fantasea impressed us. They presented us with detailed, informative tours of their ballroom and two of their three vessels in Marina Del Rey. They provided us with a planner packet full of literature, menus, recommended vendors, and pricing packages. Given their competitive pricing, excellent service, high recommendations, extensive client list, and inclusive service packages, it didn’t take long for us to decide that Fantasea was the way we wanted to go.
Fantasea spent the next several months working with us on the payments for hosting our wedding, as well as holding periodic meetings on the details for the wedding event itself. They were totally professional and prompt the whole way through, and were a dream to work with. They were able to accommodate minor changes in the plans all the way up until the last few days before the event. When you’re planning something as big as a wedding, you need to know that your hosts will work with you and understand your needs and be able to respond. Fantasea rose above and beyond the occasion with every call.
I don’t know what I would’ve done if I hadn’t had Fantasea’s help the day of the wedding. Our coordinator and her assistant (Jasmine and Lindsay) were with us from day 1 of the planning, and they were the glue that held that whole show together on the big day. They made sure that everyone and everything – boat crew, cooks/food, officiants, DJs, wedding party, guests, etc – were in the right place at the right time. At the same time, the major decisions fall on the bride and groom (as they should) but they are on hand at the event to make sure that those things happen! The wedding went as smoothly as I could’ve ever imagined. Not a glitch to be had. Excellent, top-notch professionalism all the way.
I’d also like to say that we ended up using a DJ and a photographer off of their recommended vendor list, even after researching independent options. I highly recommend this, as boats are very different than land-based venues, and offer different challenges, problems, and need different solutions and better preparations. The DJ and the photographer’s familiarity with the venue made an enormous difference. The pictures look amazing, and the music spot-on.
The wedding was a blast – easily the best night of my life, the best party I’ve ever thrown, and an experience that I would relive again in a heartbeat. We had around 90 people attend the wedding, and most of them came up to my wife and I during the cruise and said that ours was the best wedding they had ever attended. Between the ceremony, the food, the drinks, the music, and the dancing, the all the guests enjoyed themselves immensely.
If you’re looking for a unique, special place to hold your wedding, and you need top-notch professionals to help you pull it off, look no further than Fantasea. You will have an amazing experience with them.

Best choice for a wedding venue!
Our experience working with FantaSea for our wedding was perfect from the first contact right through the wedding day. Jasmine, Erin, and Karen went above and beyond to make sure that our special day went perfectly. Communication was great and attention to detail was on point. They helped us customize our wedding to work within our budget to make sure that we got everything we wanted while staying within our budget and did a great job with all of the planning and coordinating. You won't be disappointed if you book an event with FantaSea. They are the best!
