Our experience was absolutely fantastic! We did a bare boat rental where Joe recommended a captain. Both Joe and the captain were super professional and provided excellent service. Joe did a fantastic job explaining the boat features and safety procedures, helped us get all of our things on the boat and provided answers to any questions we had. We will definitely be renting from Joe again. Absolutely perfect and smooth experience.
