    30' Mark Twain Beautiful Boat In Toronto - Can have 8 persons and Sleep Up To 6 Person!!!

    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.

    34' Powerboat Charter in Chesapeake, Annapolis MD & South River

    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!

    This was a truly unforgettable experience that me, my friends and family will never forget. We are still dreaming of the wonderful day we spent on Abdallah’s gorgeous boat! We celebrated my 40th birthday in style and had the time of our lives sailing the Toronto harbour, eating, drinking and dancing. Abdallah is a fun and relaxed captain but he is still very much concerned for the safety of his passengers and ensures we have a safe but fun time. He is very familiar with the waters and was flexible to take us wherever we wanted to go and guided us accordingly. His co-captain assisted us with bbq’ing and helped with anything we needed. Abdallah is clear and so quick with his responses and will answer any question you may have. He’s also a very honest man just looking to show his clients a good time. Everyone on board and all of my social media followers are looking to enjoy a day on board Abdallah’s boat again so you better book quick before his bookings are all gone. Lastly I want to mention that I’m sure you can see that his prices are very reasonable considering the size and quality of the boat, not to mention the excellent service. I have an will continue to highly recommend him! Enjoy! 🛥⛵️

    HIGHLY recommend a trip with Captain Alan on his beautiful, immaculate boat! Planned this is a surprise birthday party for a friend and Alan was super accommodating, helpful and enhanced the experience by being a super fun guy. Our group felt safe through out the entire experience and just enjoyed a lovely afternoon on the water with music, beer and some rose! Thank you Alan!
