      Thank you Captain Troy and Winnie for providing wonderful hospitality and showing us around the Exumas! We enjoyed every minute of the trip from the morning cruises with breakfast on the top floor to the sunset drinks on the aft deck! Captain and Winnie were 1st class and treated us like family : ) We explored many wonderful sites with confidence and joy, and will have many memories to cherish for years to come! Thank you again for making our trip incredibly special

      If you’re looking for a great boat day then book with AJ. His boat was PERFECT and the captain was so nice and knowledgeable. AJ was so communicative and worked with our schedule requests and went above and beyond for us. The boat was beautiful and so spacious. We will absolutely be booking again anytime we are in south Florida again :)
