    Santi and Lucia were wonderful hosts / captains for our trip! We HIGHLY recommend them over any corporate charter company - you cannot beat the value. The catamaran is clean, modern, well-equipped for activities, and spacious. They brought us to beautiful islands and even allowed us to stay a little longer upon return to watch the sunset. Thank you so much for a perfect day on the water!

    Relax on a 50' Power Cat in the beautiful waters around Marathon, FL

    I had an unforgettable evening with Captain Jim and Kim. I’ve been raving since I got home-gorgeous sunset, delicious food, beautiful boat and fantastic company and hospitality. They were quick to communicate and ready- to-go upon my arrival. The boat is well-maintained and very smooth. We anchored for sunset and they prepared fresh pineapple, grilled grouper, key lime pie and some delicious cocktails. J & K did a great job of making me comfortable without being on top of me. I’d go back in a heartbeat! Rebecca (New Jersey)
