We had a great time. Would definitely recommend renting this boat. We were celebrating a birthday and they were an integral part of making it a great day.
Did this for my bday was such an awesome experience. 10/10 would book again!
We had an amazing time with Jeff—really beautiful day on the water ! He was easy going, fun and knowledgeable about the area. He took us to a great cove to swim and took some great pictures of our family without us even having to ask. His boat was immaculate and he had a cooler full of ice upon arrival. We will definitely rent with Jeff again. Thank you for a wonderful day! :)
Highly recommend! Jeff was super accommodating. He had a better agenda than us. He took us to a concert on the water that we didn’t even know was going on. The boat was very prepared and even had a cooler with ice. Would definitely go with him again.
Jeff is a talented captain in every way! We had a group of kids, two 80 year-olds as well as my wife and I at 50. Jeff was accommodating and charming with everyone - a gentleman and a class act. Jeff's boat is super fun, great seating on the back and fun lounging area on the front. We cruised the lake looking at the beautiful houses, docked in a a nice bay for lunch and went swimming. Had a spectacular time and will be back with family, friends and clients. You will not be disappointed hiring Jeff for a cruise.
Our trip with Jeff was fantastic. He was attentive to our needs and the whole group had a blast: taking in the views, floaties, swimming, etc. The boat was sparkling clean and had all the amenities we needed and more (beach towels, restrooms, lounge chairs, floaties, etc). The trip exceeded our expectations and we’d love to come back and do more trips.
