      28’ Pro Kat Center Console for rent with Captain in Pompano Beach, Florida!

      The entire experience was wonderful - Olaf was very responsive from the moment I submitted my inquiry until we that were a good fit for our group and off we went. The boat was a great size for 6 people - plenty of space to hang out for all of us. I booked this for my mother's birthday so 4 of the 6 members of our group were older and needed some help on/off the boat and Olaf was wonderful making them feel welcomed and comfortable. There is a speaker to hook up bluetooth and a large cooler for drinks if you want to bring any. Highlight recommend! Will definitely book again in the future.

      Amazing & Immaculate 40' Yacht rental in Fort Lauderdale, Boca, or Miami

      Our captain was Gary and he was amazing!! He offered to switch our days to accommodate the sunshine and was very prompt and thorough in every aspect! He explained everything and pretty much just let us have our fun for our 4 hours. He knew exactly where to take us and he took us to this fun sandbar where a lot of other boats were docked. It was overall a fun experience with my friends and family and Gary was simply amazing!! I’ll be booking with him everytime I travel to Fort Lauderdale!!

      2021 Starcraft Pontoon Boat for Rent in Pompano Beach

      We had a fantastic day out on Brandon’s listed boat. Brandon replied quickly and efficiently. He was prepared for us to be there the same day we booked it and flexible with timings. The boat was in excellent condition and we were pre-warned that the radio/Bluetooth wasn’t working beforehand so we were able to take our own Bluetooth speaker. After renting a lot of boats in the past, I would highly recommend using Brandon as it couldn’t have been any easier!

      Amazing trip and experience! The Captain Nick (also the owner) took us to the perfect locations...private beach and great seafood restaurant right on the intracostal. Nick also took the time to show our 11yr old son some boating tips...maybe even let him drive a bit.
