    Greg and Katie were both fun, kind, and have a great boat playlist to offer (though they did allow us to play our own music if we preferred). They had great knowledge of the lake, including where to see incredible houses, where the best sandbars are, and where to eat. My family and I couldn’t have had a better experience! Highly recommend.

  2. Maggie

    Our experience was great! The pickup location had plenty of parking, there was plenty of room for our group of 8 to fit comfortably, Katie made sure we had everything we needed, and Greg found the perfect spot for us to anchor and enjoy the water. Definitely recommend!

    Greg and Katie were great. Greg answered all my questions quickly and arrived right on time for pick up. Katie kept our drinks filled, both made sure we had a fun day and were fun to be around. The boat was bigger and nicer than we expected from the listing. It was well maintained and very clean. We had 10 adults and all fit comfortably. I would recommend renting from Greg and will use him again next time we’re in the area.

    We had a fantastic time with Greg and Katie. It was a very stress-free way to introduce the kids to tubing and to explore Lake Minnetonka. Will definitely book with them again.

    Greg and Katie were AWESOME! They were sweet, accommodating and everything was amazing. You couldn't have asked for a better captain or first mate! Would highly recommend!

Additional Terms & Information

Guests are asked to please arrive a few minutes early to go over safety briefing and also stow anything that is brought on board.  Most trips will have a captain and first mate aboard to give our guests the best service possible.  Captain and owner are not responsible for anything that is brought on boat that gets wet or damaged or dropped in the water. Music can be played via bluetooth connection to boat stereo at a moderate level when underway. Music on anchor when other boats are present will be kept to a minimum as to not bother other people. Tubing and all other water sports are allowed only during the weekdays with a maximum of 8 guests on board. Any cancelations due to weather will be rebooked for another day. Gasoline surcharges are to be paid in cash at the end of the cruise. In the event of mechanical breakdowns, a refund in the amount of time remaining will be given to guests. My goal is to have as much fun possible and also remain safe. Guests are required to follow all requests by Captain during the cruise. Lake Minnetonka can get very rough at times with large waves and guests oftentimes will be required to remain seated during these times.  We know you and your guests will have an amazing day on the Lake aboard our beautiful 26 Foot Chaparral! CHEERS!
