    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!
