Porter and Chad were awesome. Booking was easy and quick. The boat was beautiful. We got to see flying fish, sea turtles, a bunch of great birds, and a perfect sunset. Porter and Chad were very accommodating throughout the trip and even took a great video for us of a surprise proposal that happened for my sister. Awesome awesome awesome trip.

Would highly recommend this experience to anyone coming to the North Shore! Porter and his boat were awesome and we had an incredible time. Porter and his first mate Will were extremely knowledgeable, and made for a great trip. If you are considering a boat trip while here this is the move.
This was an awesome sail. A fabulous boat in a gorgeous setting but what made it really special was the captain, Porter, and first mate Will. They were fun to hang out with, answered our many questions, showed us beautiful beaches and even found dolphins and sea turtles. I highly recommend booking with Porter!
We had a 2 hour rental from North Shore. Had a little trouble finding the pier but once we did away we went!!! The proximity we were to breathtaking humpback whales and dolphins. This was a day we will never forget! Porter is an extremely experienced Captain which made us feel super safe and in good hands. He was also super knowledgeable about Whales and Northshore as well! Highly recommend you book with him!
