There is a fresh water shower on the stern for rinsing after a swim. We have a large cooler and refrigerator for keeping your beverage of choice ice cold. The standard rate for a half day, private yacht charter for up to 10 guests is $1,000 and includes everything you’ll need for a fun day on the boat - your Captain, fuel, water and ice. A full, eight-hour day gives you ample time to cruise the canals, look for manatees, grab a bite at one of Fort Lauderdale’s amazing water-front restaurants and still have time for a dip in the ocean!

Captain Aaron was absolutely amazing. The boat was perfect and our group had such a great time. Captain Aaron was great at reading our group and anchoring in the perfect spot. He was knowledgeable about our surroundings as well as the waterways and the creatures that could/could not be in the waters. Thank you for all that you did, you went above and beyond our wishes!
Captain Aaron was flexible with what we wanted to do and provided suggestions to enhance our day. Very knowledgeable about the waters to provide a safe day out on the during a very busy 4th of July weekend. Engaging without being intrusive. Thanks again for a great day out on the water. Lisa
Perfect boat and captain for our bachelorette afternoon. Captain Aaron was extremely knowledgeable, attentive, and helpful. The boat was spacious and had more than enough room for all our food and drinks. I would 100% recommend this boat and captain combo and we will be calling to book our next afternoon soon!
I would definitely recommend Aaron to everyone. He was great at communicating, very honest, and accommodating. His yacht is very clean, spacious, comfortable and looks brand new. We had such a great time, I would definitely book with him again 👌🏽
It was on time and stress free. He allotted 3 parking space for his guests and advice on what to purchase before your departure. He had water and soda and if you needed anything additional he will give the advice on what’s the best thing to do.
I am your full time host, tour guide and captain extraordinaire, Aaron Richie. My aim is to make your day on the water as amazing as possible as we navigate safely from one point of interest to the next. We will discuss your itinerary preferences and design your day, your way.
