What a perfect start to the weekend! This experience was everything I’d hoped for and more. The boat was absolutely beautiful, spacious, and clean. Capt. Martin and crew were beyond professional, accommodating, and personable. They ensured anything we needed at any given moment before and during the trip was provided. We had a blast and can’t wait for the next opportunity to charter.
Beautiful boat for my 50th birthday celebration. Armand was professional and communicated well. We had a wonderful adventure with Captain Larry and Dean. I highly recommend booking with Armand.
I highly recommend this. I will absolutely be a returning customer!!!
Great Yacht rental! We had storms and Armand was quick to text and help us reschedule. He communicated well with us throughout process, and helped us find a Captain. Boat was just as advertised and probably had the nicest bathroom I’ve seen on a boat that size. We were able to customize our itinerary all the way up to when we boarded. Would certainly rent again. Family and friends we brought loved it.
Such an amazing experience. Armand was so fast to respond with any questions or concerns that I had. The boat was clean and fantastic and had everything we needed. Martin and Craig were absolutely amazing. I cant say enough good things about them. They went above and beyond to accomedate us. I mean they even held up out penis pinata HAHA . They were so great, everything was great. Cant wait to be back!
My friends came to town from New York to celebrate July 4th. We wanted to enjoy our day out on the lake and we all enjoyed the experience very much. We decided to head to playpen and stayed the entire afternoon. Our captain Martin and Craig were great and took great care of us.
