Awesome experience on a stellar boat! Even though Chuck himself couldn’t make it due to unforeseen circumstances, he went above and beyond to find us another reputable captain replacement so we could still go out on the lake. Our group of 7 had a blast! We got to wake board, wake surf, water ski, and go tubing and our captain, Austin, was so patient and fun to be around! He had helpful tips for the beginners and made it a great experience for all of us. The boat itself was very impressive - it was spacious and fit all 8 of us comfortably with room to spare. It was clearly build for wake boarding and wake surfing - we couldn’t have asked for a better boat for those activities. Highly recommend booking with Chuck!
Chuck is a great captain and a ton of fun. The boat is beautiful and Chuck has great equipment that made our experience super memorable. He was really patient with our group of inexperienced wake-boarders and walked us through each step of the way. Totally recommend!!
I would definitely recommend Chuck! This boat ride was so much fun and I would do it again! He had everything needed for the lake and was so helpful if we had questions. Also his boat is soooo awesome! Very spacious and the music sounds great. Definitely good vibes.
Chuck was the man. We had an amazing time and will be booking again with Chuck in the future. Loud music (not disturbing the peace loud), great captain and an awesome boat. He fit right into our crazy little family for a great day on the lake. The boat was waiting and ready to go upon our arrival, couldn’t ask for a better 4 hours on the lake. Thanks Chuck!
Looking for a fun boat day? Don’t look any further! Our family decided to look into renting a boat on Folsom Lake (with a captain) for the afternoon. After reading countless 5 star reviews, we reached out to Chuck, who was very quick with a response and his communication/flexibility with dates/time gave us all the confidence we needed. He shared key details we needed for parking/the launch dock and exceeded our expectations the day of! He arrived right on time and truly had everything we were looking for… space for our family of 5 (though his boat could hold double that!) a tube, wake boards, multiple sizes for life vests etc. He is laid back, knows all about the area, the lake, boating and very professional. He’s also a cool, fun guy to talk to which adds to the overall experience. He let us control the music, tube for hours and to top it off, took us around the lake to take in the scenery on the way home. We thoroughly enjoyed our day on the boat and will absolutely reach out for another booking in the future. Worth every penny! Thanks for the memories Chuck! -The Boston Crew
Our group had such an amazing time on Chuck’s boat. His boat was beautiful and in prestige condition. Chuck was so patient and offered guidance for first time wake surfers in our group. He also was very accommodating with his speed during tubing so that a great time could be had by all. Our group is already looking forward to booking our next trip out on the lake with Chuck!
