GetMyBoat customer reviews for Boat Rentals worldwide.
I absolutely loved this trip! Aaron was a great captain and he offered to take great pictures for me and my friends! I went for my 21st birthday and we had an absolute blast. The boat was beautiful and the pictures shown do not do it justice. I will certainly book this again!
Abdallah was great at giving us the right amount of tour to hanging out ratio. He went out of his way to make sure we were having a good time even when our group got rowdy. He's great at tailoring your itinerary for what you are looking for, I would highly recommend Abdallah to anyone looking to rent a boat.
we had the best time yesterday. due to traffic we were late and abdullah waited for evrryone to arrive to ensure we all enjoyed ourselves. we sailed for 1 hr and chilled for the next , very good experience ill do it again in a heartbeat. thanks 😃
Had a great time on this clean, well running boat. Hassle free meet up and departure and drop off was a snap. As a previous boat owner I know how hard it is to keep your boat clean and running well - much appreciated!
We rented the Cruiser overnight for 2 nights and did a B&B experience. Captain planned the itinerary which included cruise across the Chesapeake to St Michael’s Marina where we stayed, along with stops at 2 lighthouses and creeks all throughout the Chesapeake. We stopped to swim/paddle board at a sandbar and had lovely sunset cruises. And fantastic breakfasts provided from local establishments. Melvin and Stacy are wonderful and great to our family of 6 even going out of their way to make our one daughter have a great birthday onboard. It was a lovely experience
My wife treated me to a safe pandemic outing for my birthday. I had a few cocktails, a bologna sandwich, smoked a cigar, kissed on my wife, boated with dolphins and took lots of pictures. As a life long boater I appreciated a well maintained, clean boat that performed well with every task I gave it. With all that being said, the idea that Alan had the boat ready at the dock for us to just step onto and leave and met us back at the dock when we came back in was simple, easy and all the pleasures of boating with none of the work. We'll definitely do this again!
