This was the highlight of my birthday vaca. 20/10 definitely recommend!! The captain and co captain were so amazing and made sure we were good the entire time! I can’t wait to come back I’ll be renting with them again.
One of the biggest highlights of our trip and we came here to get married! Captain Luis was an exceptional host and so accommodating. Shortly after starting our voyage it felt like we were just out on the water enjoying a beautiful day with an old friend. This is a must-do experience especially for such a reasonable price. Highly, highly recommended!
This was, without a doubt, the best part of our 3.5 day trip to San Juan. We knew we wanted to spend one evening doing a boat our around the island, and bonus points if it provided alcohol or allowed us to bring our own. I originally found a similar tour on Viator, but the date was blacked out due to family vacation. I looked through other Viator options and could not find anything that I felt good about--for example, one agency said you can only text, they would not answer any calls for any reason. I searched and searched and finally found GetMyBoat and Captain Luis, and it was everything we asked for and more! First pro: communication! From the beginning, Luis was quick to respond to any and all questions. He communicated the day before the trip, and provided clear instructions (including pictures) on how to find him. Second pro: Experience-- Luis and Gaby treated us like old friends and made sure we were able to what we wanted with our time. (They even sailed a little longer for us) Luis and Gaby started with a quick safety briefing then quickly let us take over as DJ and offered us sangria (which was delicious) and beer. They allowed our group to hang out at the other end of the boat for about an hour uninterrupted. Captain Luis then began telling us about some of the history of Puerto Rico. We had time to swim off the boat, and they took pictures for us. On the way back, Captain Luis and Gaby visited with us , telling us about their lives, asking questions about ours, and providing recommendations for what to do in OSJ and the surrounding area. Drinks were provided the entire time and his wife made us a beautiful charcuterie board. It wasn't small talk, but truly great conversation and laughs! Third pro: Price This tour was the same as viator options BUT IT WAS PRIVATE to our group---win win! No having to worry about other people getting too close, being too rowdy/loud, or rude. It allowed us to relax even more. I simply cannot say enough positive things about the service and fun Captain Luis and Gaby provided. I am a typical Type A lawyer, who has trouble relaxing/turning everything off, but for the three or so hours I was on the boat, I was just a thirty-something year old able to have fun and enjoy the ocean and surroundings. If we are ever able to return to Old San Juan, this would be my first booking.
I understand this boat was under maintenance so Moraima was acting as an intermediary. Our booking was done here but the captain was a separate person, Tito, who provided excellent service. Very flexible and knowledgeable. The boat is simple, nothing fancy, but more than enough to enjoy the quiet water around there. We stopped on an island for lunch, very pleasant day.
Memorable experience and captain was very flexible with what we wanted to do. Excellent communication throughout the planning of the trip. Some important things to note: Captain has limited English as the majority of us spoke Spanish. Rum drinks were not served as promised in description. We were brought to a store to purchase any alcoholic beverages. Snack provided was pineapple. Highly recommend bringing your snacks as you get hungry on the water.
The Blue Doubloon was an amazing time for my best friends bachelor party. We had a group of 11 and the bareboat was perfect, we cruised around the bay for a bit and did some swimming before cruising the the Atlantic for a bit. The captain and crew couldn't have been more accommodating, i would highly recommend booking this boat!
