    Nimble Nomad Self Hire Boat, Erie Canal, Finger Lakes. Week long bareboat charters Monday-Sunday or multiple weeks

    We had a very enjoyable week on Nimble Nomad. The canal towns were very friendly and welcoming, as were Mark, Mark , and Holly. The Nomad, while very compact, was shipshape and well outfitted. She was easy to handle, comfortable and fuel efficient. We had a few rainy evenings which gave us the opportunity to explore her DVD collection; a few gems in there! Everywhere we went people fell in love with Nomad. Highly recommended!

    Best Rental experience ever! Gary is one of a kind, we call him ol' school cool! lol. Felt like I've known him for years. Awesome guy, awesome boat! We will never rent from anywhere else in this area again. Best value by far, Gary includes gas, big cooler full of ice and water, a bangin bluetooth loud speaker for music, floats for the kids and so much more! It would have cost us upwards of $600 to rent a boat this nice from some big rental company. So glad we found Gary, saved us a lot of money, not to mention all the extras he supplies that the others don't and the one of a kind experience he gave us! We rented his boat all day for ours sons 12th bday on June 15th, it was one of the best trips we've had and Gary really helped make the experience awesome. Thanks again Gary, the kids are still talking about you and the boat!! See ya next time.

    This was our first real vacation with some friends & Gary really made It feel special. His hospitality was off the charts & as Texans we appreciate that so much. His boat was clean, safe & we enjoyed every minute on it. He was hilarious, friendly, professional & overall genuinely an amazing, honest, kind person. It felt as though he was a long time friend of ours lol We miss the guy already & will definitely be renting from him again! Thanks Gary!!!

    I cannot say enough good things about Gary and his boat. We had our whole family from age 2 to 86 on the boat and ALL LOVED IT! Gary was so nice and pleasant and so easy to work with. He gave us an amazing “tutorial” before we left and was so very kind. We will keep renting from him every chance we get!!

    Stop! Seriously. You found the right pontoon, the right man, the right experience! Gary is so personable and caring that you won’t leave this with a canned boat ride experience, but a heart full of memories and laughter. Fun for couples and families! Our family of ten won’t use anyone else now that we’ve found Gary! He has the pontoon fully stocked, affordable prices, and makes SURE he’s a phone call away. Want to make beautiful memories? Rent this pontoon. No doubt!

    We had a great time and this was the first time using this app. We have, for the past 20 years, rented from a local marina. I will rent from this owner again and use this app whenever we travel other places. The boat was fantastic and the owner included a cooler full of ice, all waters and other necessities for the trip that most places don’t think of such as vinegar for jellyfish stings. Luckily we did not have to use that. The owner was very prompt, professional and communicated great. He even took a picture of us before we left the dock. We had a great time and we would not hesitate to rent this boat again and from this owner. You can tell he thoroughly enjoys renting his boat and really wants you to have a good time.
