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.
This is a lot of fun for the whole family. We went out for 3 hours, sailed just past the old fort then doubled back, dropped anchor midway through, had some snacks, swam a bit in the ocean, then sailed back. Friendly captain and first mate. Would go with them again.
From start to finish this birthday boat ride was worth it. Daryl was very warm, fun, friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable! He took greats pics of my friends and I, as well as gave us great history points throughout. Not only was the sunset stunning.. but the complimentary charcuterie board was BEAUTIFUL & DELICIOUS!! A nice touch to a great evening. Would definitely book again.
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!
Luis was amazing. great sailboat tour, amazing hospitality. 5/5 must do!
