We had an amazing time celebrating my wife’s birthday! Elaine and Will were extremely professional! Their yacht was beautiful and super clean, and their captain and crew were all very nice! Will even followed up post the trip to see how it was, which I appreciated! We would definitely do this again!
We will definitely be booking this yacht again in the future. The communication with the owners is amazing and they are very responsive. We had some questions regarding the weather and they answered all of our questions. The vessel was clean and accommodated all 26 of my guests! It’s a very nice clean yacht. They were on time and allowed us to setup the yacht with balloons and they got us back on the dock safely. I absolutely recommend them!
Rick was phenomenal! The yacht, the experience, Rick as a host, the kindness and hospitality - all of it was wonderful! I had 2 separate groups of 9 women, and Rick made sure that everyone felt comfortable and had a WONDERFUL time! We will definitely be back!
The yacht was beautiful, clean, VERY spacious & very well priced for what you get! I booked on a holiday weekend and it was still a great price! The owners were very responsive & captain George was a great fit for our cruise! I will definitely rent again!
Great day with a great a Captain Mike, and crew Jesse! The boat was bit and spacious for our family. They were exceptionally accommodating and found us dolphins several times during the day. Jesse was a fantastic crew and hostess. What a great day!
Rick is an amazing caption!!! We enjoyed every moment. He made our night memorable and special. He was able to accommodate everything at the last minute. We can’t thank him enough. Definitely, will book again with Rick. ☺️
