My group of girls had an awesome time! Our captain, Adrian, was great and Ramon was super responsive and easy to work with. They were really flexible with us to work around some not great weather and made sure we still had an awesome time!
Absolutely amazing! My girlfriend and I chartered the boat for an afternoon getaway and it was exactly that! Ester and Dan were phenomenal, 100% the best hosts, I would recommend to anyone that is looking for a yacht to book with Neptune's Adventure! Absolutely amazing!
10 out of 5 stars all around! Captain Dan and Esther communicated right away to accommodate our family of five for a last-minute 4-hour lunch cruise. The yacht is absolutely gorgeous, and we all had a wonderful time! They were very attentive to make sure the children were safe, and they were very personable, which made for a comfortable and relaxing experience. Captain Dan was able to point out so many dolphins, and Esther was a great tour guide teaching us about and giving recommendations for many places along our route. The kids had a blast floating on the mat while we were anchored. We will book with them again for sure— hoping to run into them in a different place for another spectacular adventure.
Captain Max was awesome and the whole family absolutely loved our day on the water. We went cruising and Capt Max put us literally on top of a pod of dolphins. The kids loved it! Then to Crab Island to play and relax. Capt had everything we needed too, like floats, toys and a big floating pad to lay out and play on. It was a fantastic trip, highly recommend you book with Capt Max, you won’t be sorry!
We had the best time. Our group consisted of kids and adults and everyone was so glad Max sent Robert to take us out for the day. He was thoughtful and made sure we got to see dolphin, and that we had the perfect spot on Crab Island. We will definitely see you all again next year!
Because I had never used getmyboat.com, I was a bit nervous about booking through the site. After booking, I received contact info on the boat owner and reached out to him. I immediately received a call back and was able to confirm and have all my questions answered which made me feel much more comfortable. The boat owner Jason, kept in communication with me and went out of his way to make our experience hassle free. The boat was delivered on time and exceeded our expectations. Our family has been visiting Destin for over the past 12 years and I had been using the traditional rental outlets which require a much more paperwork, details and more expensive. This year we had a very large crew and Jason’s 30 ft “Crazy Train” pontoon was perfect and came with a paddle board, roll out floating pad, fishing poles and all the stuff we normally would have to pack and bring ourselves. In a word, our experience was AWSOME! THANKS AGAIN JASON
