    Sail Right From South Beach!

    We chartered this boat for my friend's bachelorette party. From booking to the actual trip everything was easy and worked out great. The boat is beautiful and the Captain and first mate were awesome and so helpful. 10/10 would recommend. Only regret is not doing a full day on the water.
