My experience with Fredrick was nothing short of de . . . wait for it . . . lightful. I actually stumbled upon GetmyBoat after the local marinas were all booked for the weekend, and boy am I glad they were. Not only was the experience cheaper than renting a boat through a marina, but you also get your personal Captain that is familiar with the ins and outs of the lake -- cannot beat that. My experience started by Fredrick texting me to work through the itinerary. We also shared pleasantries about how our week was going. F-Dawg (as I came to call him) shared that he just saw the critically acclaimed Blockbuster smash, Sonic 2. The night prior to our trip we had a bit of a hiccup. Frederick texted that his boat wouldn't be ready due to longer than expected repairs. When I read this first sentence, my heart sunk. Let down again by another loved one. But this notice was just a mere scare meant to build up the tension because in the next sentence F-Dawg let me know that his friend also had a similar boat and he could take us out! The friend agreed to honor our initial agreement and F-dawg and our new Captain arranged all of the other details. Now for the actual boating experience . . . . lovely. It was lovely. We cruised around the lake, enjoyed some adult soda pops, ate some boat appropriate snacks (I highly recommend veggie crudites so you can keep that boat bod hot), stopped at a beach, and just had a wonderful time. I realized that I’m searching, searching for what I really want in life. And you know what? I want to spend my days out on Lake Mead with my man Frederick. Sorry for the How I Met Your Mother quotes (just finished watching the series).
If you are looking for the best time on Lake Mead look no further as Fredrick is the best captain on this website! He is so personable, funny, and knows the lake and surrounding areas so well. He shared several interesting stories about the history of the lake and already had an itinerary ready to go for us that we could customize at anytime during our 4 hour booking. He also has a kneeboard and tube that we tried after lunch and it was incredible. He took his time coaching everyone on how to use the kneeboard and everyone got up on the kneeboard successfully which was so cool! He also has a great eye for safety and truly cares about everyone on board. We will definitely book with him next time we visit Nevada. We had a long weekend stay in Vegas and this was without a doubt the best decision we made over the weekend! Thanks for the wonderful memories Fredrick!
I’m so glad we made this choice over other options to see Lake Mead. We all had a wonderful experience. I know we saw things things and places on Lake me that we would not have been able to see with the big commercial boat. Frederick was very informative and it could not have been a better day.
Great captain worth the money. Make sure you bring your food snacks and beverages for the trip. He knows the area very well even a couple hidden spots that you probably wouldn’t find on your own. He’s very versatile lol he was our camera man too while we were tubing .
WOW, all I can say is WOW. It was just me and 3 of my girlfriends and It was such a magical experience. Fredrick took us all over the lake and took us to amazing spots so we can snap some incredible pictures. We also went tubing and the girls had so much fun. Honestly, this was not just a boat day it was an experience. HUGE THANK YOU for being so nice, kind, and so fun. You haven't experience the beauty of vegas until you rent a boat and head out on the lake to experience nature. THANKS AGAIN!
Our trip on Kieran’s boat was epic! We had Captain Drew at the helm and he was excellent, made sure we were happy, comfortable and having a blast. He took us to some of the best spots on the lake, so we got a photo opp with the Hoover Dam, floated around in a shallow beachy area, and got to check deeper waters near some beautiful canyons. The boat was super clean, spacious, and stocked with cold water to keep us hydrated. We were a group of 10 and there was plenty of room for all of us and our belongings. Smooth, chill ride. Can’t compliment this crew enough! Would definitely plan another trip next time I’m in the area :)
