      Private Unique 32' Big Beautiful Mark Twain Boat In Toronto - Can have 8-10 persons and Sleep Up To 6 Person!!!

      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!

      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 !!!

      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!
