“Harbor breeze adventure”
Reviewed 15 July 2018 for a stay in July 2018

Third trip back to the Island Trader, love the old world charm of this boat. What a premium location with restaurants and shopping galore, all within easy walking distance. Free Passport bus ride to nearby city points of interest. Live entertainment in the village most nights and all afternoon on weekends. Friendly neighbors at the dock. Captain Chuck is a wonderful host and readily available to answer any questions or concerns. If you have a spirit of adventure and want a break from motels, hotels or bed and breakfast.....this is the rental for you! You will not be disappointed.

“Float you cares away!”
Reviewed 3 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

This was our second stay on the Island Trader. We had so much fun last year, we had to return. We love the location in the harbor, so convenient with easy access to food, shopping, bike and walking paths. Los Alimitos Beach is a 5 minute walk. Take the water Taxi over to the Queen Mary for dinner. The harbor tour provided wonderful views of downtown Long Beach. The Passport Bus, which is free and stops at many of the local attractions is timely and hassle free. Hop on or hop off as you deem appropriate. We parked the car when we arrived and never turned the key until our departure.
Live entertainment at Shoreline Village mall and Shenanigan's is very diverse - listen or dance to your hearts content.
We find the fellow boat people to be fun and friendly. They are more than willing to share their travel adventures and knowledge of the area. My husband especially likes talking to the harbor staff who always take the time to answer questions on the boats in the marina or share travel stories when time allows.

“An Excellent Theme Accommodation”
Reviewed 7 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

If you're looking for a unique place to stay in the heart of all that Long Beach has to offer then I highly recommend Captain Chuck's Island Trader. We were in town for Jimmy Buffett's last Irvine Meadows concert and thought this was the perfect place to stay. The setting is beautiful in the marina off Shoreline Village. Be aware that the accommodations do not include maid service and private restroom facilities and showers are provided in the marina -- this is an actual boat after all. Unfortunately, due to time, we were unable to take advantage of Captain Chuck's charter services, but we likely will next time we're in Long Beach.

“Tranquility in the center of Long Beach Downtown Harbor”
Reviewed 7 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

From the first communication with Captain Chuck, I knew we were in for an interesting "get away". The Island Trader is comfortable and unique. Neighbors on dock were friendly and fun. We heard many interesting stories of experiences on the water. Within short walking distance are plenty of great food and great shopping opportunities, the Aquarium and discounted harbor tours are available as well. The Passport bus can transport you safely to even more local hot spots, enabling you to relax and enjoy the view rather than contend with traffic and worry about parking. Best part, it's free! We were able to spend time relaxing on the top deck to improve harbor view and people watching. Lower deck was where we spent the majority of our time enjoying a break from the AZ heat. Anyone with an interest in a new experience would enjoy the "boat and bed" experience on the Island Trader.
