Sitting on the east coast of Florida in Volusia County is New Smyrna Beach, a great city to enjoy a beach vacation in, about 20 miles south from Daytona Beach.

The summer months also see the most precipitation, and there’s a higher chance of a hurricane crashing into your vacation.

Professional and equipment was spot on as listed. Boat was in the water when we arrived and Alec was there at the dock when we returned. Also the communication leading up the date was incredible. He was available to text 24/7, I plan on using him again in the future!
Highly recommend this boat for a group of up to 4. Loved the day rental option. Pickup and return was a breeze. Ken was flexible, and reliable and treated us with kindness and trust. He offered us a few possible launch locations to best fit our needs. Boat was clean and ready to go when we met at the launch. Ken offered a quick boat rundown and some suggestions with a map of potential places to explore. If you want to explore New Smyrna or around Ponce Inlet or Mosquito Lagoon or down south towards Canaveral area, this boat will do the trick. Thanks for a great day with my wife.
Highly recommend for a day on the water clean convenient and worth the dollar
This was a great experience it was a surprise for my dad and Ken made it so easy and smooth to book and super punctual with time as well would definitely book with him again.
Ray was supper responsive and had great advice and directions thru the whole process. The boat was super clean and in top notch condition. We had a blast and saw lots of dolphins and other wildlife. I can’t think of anything better to say than “I’m looking forward to next time!” Ted
From start to finish, our boating experience with Captain Ray was wonderful! Captain Ray handled all aspects of our boat rental with expertise and professionalism! I would highly recommend Captain Ray to anyone looking for a great time on the water. The pontoon boat was beautiful, immaculate in appearance and a smooth ride on the water. A great time was had by everyone in our group! Thank you, Captain Ray!
