GetMyBoat customer reviews for boat rentals in Fort Lauderdale.
Nick is nice and a great guy to work with. Very convenient and locally located to the main waterways. My wife and I will definitely be using him in our future trips down here. I would highly recommend if you’re looking for something cheaper but want to still have an awesome experience.
Captain Todd and his son Garrett were absolutely amazing! Two of the nicest people we’ve ever met. The boat was incredible it blew us away the second we pulled up to board. It was sparkling head to toe- a true luxury yacht. We asked Captain Todd to suggest where we should drive about on our tour and it was a dream. The sandbar was an awesome part of the day we really enjoyed the chance to get to swim around. It was 5 of us on board (more than plenty of room) and we did a 6 hour day. We didn’t want to ever leave that boat it was one of the best days we’ve had and it was all thanks to Captain Todd and Garret. They had a great energy and were both wonderful to share this experience with. We can’t wait to book again with them they are THE BEST of the BEST! No other Captains can compare to these two! Thank you both for making my birthday an amazing day I will never forget it!
I worked with both Nona and the captain, Gary, to plan a very special day in which I wanted to propose to my girlfriend. They were both beyond accommodating and beyond flexible in making this the day that it was. Gary was very knowledgeable of the area and brought us to a beautiful lighthouse near Pampano making for the perfect backdrop. Gary was able to capture the moment for us with tons of perfect pictures. All around it was an amazing day and I would highly highly recommend renting through Nona!
You can’t go wrong booking with this boat! Gary was pleasant and easy going. He was attentive to communication and quickly responded to all questions and concerns. Even with the bad weather we encountered he managed to direct us away from the rain and showed us around making our trip as fun as possible. The boat is clean and perfect. I highly recommend!
THE BEST! So fun and such a good time. Captain Barry lead an amazing tour of the mansions and other yachts. He was accommodating and allowed us to do basically what we wanted to do. If we wanted to stop and swim, he would allow us to. If we wanted to turn up the music, he would do that. The duo is the best and very chill. Def recommend !
Our day with Captain Todd and his first mate, Garret was beyond our expectations. Upon arrival we were greeted and helped with all our bags. Captain Todd gave us several choices of tours for the day and was very knowledgable and informative. It was 8 of us and we were on the boat from 11am to 4:30pm. There was ample room in each area for all of us and then some. We spent a lot of the day on the front portion. The pics of the boat are accurate but it is much more beautiful in person. Towels, water, ice, utensils were all provided. Captain Todd also found a perfect area for us to take a dip and chill on the water mat. Amazing day! I highly recommend.
