Andrew was fantastic! Everyone had an absolutely wonderful time on the boat and Andrew was a great captain. It was the highlight of our trip! Andrew was also incredibly helpful as we planned our trip. Very easy to communicate with and sent all the info we needed for an awesome day on the water.
We had the best day on Andy’s boat!! I booked Andy for a charted boat day for a Bachelorette party. Not only was he extremely communicative and provided great detailed information before our day trip, but he was also an all-around amazing captain! He knew the lake very well and we all felt very comfortable with him in control. His boat was beautiful, and I can honestly say our day with Andy on the water made our trip. I would recommend him to everyone and anyone!!
I'd give Andy 10 stars if I could. He was super communicative and responsive before the rental. He was accommodating and professional and we just had a blast! It was a perfect day out on the water, the boat is big enough for a big group. We were 9 and fit great. The boat is brand new and has the comfiest most luxurious seats. Andy helped us with the grill and we were able to cook a bunch of meat and stay out on the water all day. He knows the area and took us all over the lake. It was absolutely perfect!
We had a very enjoyable week on Nimble Nomad. The canal towns were very friendly and welcoming, as were Mark, Mark , and Holly. The Nomad, while very compact, was shipshape and well outfitted. She was easy to handle, comfortable and fuel efficient. We had a few rainy evenings which gave us the opportunity to explore her DVD collection; a few gems in there! Everywhere we went people fell in love with Nomad. Highly recommended!
We quickly became comfortable and relaxed in the Nomad. Traveling through the locks was straightforward and easily accomplished. You will find the lockmasters courteous and a ready source of information if/when needed. The Nomad provides everything necessary to give you a unique, relaxing and most enjoyable economical vacation. The towns along the way are very accommodating and the facilities are clean and well maintained. Pandemic safety precautions are comprehensive and routinely followed by all. Go for it!
Andy’s boat is awesome and he knows exactly where to anchor and hang out. We had such a great time - he was so accommodating. Definitely recommend!!
