    Book the Beautiful Sea Ray Motor Yacht in Miami, Florida

    Alejandro was an amazing captain, communicator and tour guide. The yacht came with basics and that was a big help which kept us from having to buy unnecessary items. My friends and I were in Miami for a bachelorette weekend and this yacht experience set it off. We'd definitely book with Alejandro on our next trip. If you're in doubt look no further. Thanks again Alejandro.

    Captained Charter on 51ft Sea Ray flybridge Motor Yacht in Miami, Florida

    Ximena and Kevin we amazing. The boat was exceptional. The pictures do it no justice. They cooked for us, got out in the water with us and even ate with us. It was truly like being out on a boat with old friends. This is going to be an annual thing for us and we will always use them. Thank you guys for making my 50th birthday celebration so memorable.

    Jet Boat / Island Tour / Bachelorettes & more

    Absolutely phenomenal experience. Our captain was Cesar Velasquez and he was incredible. Super friendly and welcoming and clearly and expert in what he does. Generally the boat was super clean and very spacious. The sound system was phenomenal. I love that it’s small and intimate. We stopped at Virginia Key for a swim and it was more than we could have dreamed of. The waters were warm and the tide was slow. Had lots of fun on the float as well. We can’t wait to be back!

They went above and beyond to cook and take pictures of my whole family as we enjoyed the music and water. Such an heavenly experience in their Yacht with this crew - can’t even imagine that I would of received this heavenly experience anywhere else.
