GetMyBoat customer reviews for boat rentals in North Carolina.
Jon gave us a great 4 hours on the lake. He was very patient & cautious with the kids (9, 9, & 11) riding the tube. He was very professional & flexible to make the trip what we wanted. We had just enough daylight & darkness with a full moon, too!.
Ameer was an excellent host and driver. He made sure to make our family boat vacation experience an amazing time. His boat is in excellent condition and he played whatever music we wanted to hear. He also inflated a 3 person tubing and was very smooth sailing making it fun and enjoyable. I recommend his services and plan to do it again if ever back in the area.
Thank you so much!! Had an awesome time and definitely one of the greatest experiences! Loved Captain Javier’s knowledge of the water and properties and he was very accommodating! I’ve been on plenty of yacht rides for girls trips and this was by far the best!
We had an amazing day on the lake! Heather and Jeff were very accommodating and a pleasure to interact with 100% of the way! We saw some beutiful houses and hiden beach spots! Kids and adults had a blast! Would return and highly recommend! Thank you for an unforgetable experience <3
Captain Jim gave us a wonderful tour around the lake and took the kids tubing for hours. We spent some time swinging on a rope swing and just floating in the water. Very easygoing and gracious host, lovely boat. I wish we could do this more often!
As always, Captain John never fails to disappoint! His boat is gorgeous and John is extremely warm and hospitable, like family! He's very well versed of the lake, and gives a breath taking yet relaxing tour! Would recommend this to everyone I know!
