I rented the boat for my birthday and invited 4 of my girlfriends. We had an incredible time. The captain was incredibly polite and prior to meeting him, he was very response and communicative, always replying and answering my questions. We stopped over at centre island and had a BBQ! We were able to enjoy the beautiful city view; with its city lights lit up at night, it was breathtaking!
Can't say enough great things about our bachelorette boat day thanks to Captain Paul! Grab your friends and summer seltzers and book this trip. Great captain who also dubs as a great photographer! We had the best time!
Book this boat ! It was an awesome trip in a beautiful clean boat. The crew were amazing, so kind and accommodating. We were met at the dock and taken care of the entire trip. We had delicious fajitas, fresh guacamole and fruit. The service was outstanding and the drinks were cold and liberal. We swam, fished and listened to music all while enjoying the scenic coastline. Thank you Raul, Ivan, Armando and Alfredo. I want to say again don’t hesitate to book this boat and you will have the time of your life ! Make sure you tip the guys too !!!
Paul was awesome! I wouldn’t have wanted to experience this excursion any other way. His expertise, professionalism, and kindness has made our time a blast.
First time booking and thoroughly enjoyed it! We had a birthday party with 12 of us - Alan made everything so easy & fun. Even before the day, we knew exactly what to bring & expect. Boat was in great condition and perfect for our party size. Alan even took pics of us along the way with a memorable group shot that he texted later. I will definitely book again!
John was great at communicating and did an amazing job at answering all my questions. The boat was so much fun and was fully equipped with kayaks and a lily pad. We had so much fun and would definitely recommend!
