Highly recommend! Clean boat and awesome captain!
I had a great time on the boat with some friends. Very spacious and comfortable. The caption was really nice and even played his guitar for us.
I thoroughly enjoyed my boat rental experience. Trevor's boat was the cheapest we could find for the size and was the highlight of my travel experience. Our captain called me the day of to review our meeting plans. Even before then, Trevor responded quickly to any questions I had. We fit 7 people on the boat comfortably (8 may have been a bit snug). The sound system was great and the captain brought floaties for us to use. We did the sat night fireworks cruise and he moved closer for us to get a good spot. I wouldn't change a thing about our experience and would highly recommend Trevor and our captain Paul to friends or for future needs.
Paul, our captain, was the most kind, go-with-the flow guy. He dealt with our group taking 2397 pictures for my bachelorette party, took us to some cool locations for photos, and had lots of supplies on the boat for us (including Dramamine). When I started to feel pretty queasy near the end of our trip, he got us out of the playpen quickly and back to the dock, where he serenaded our group with two songs on his guitar which were the cherry on top of the day. He made the experience truly amazing!! The only thing we wished we had was something like a lily pad for all of us to lay on in the water (as opposed to two inner-tubes for 8 girls), but it was not expected as it wasn't listed in the booking details! Overall a fantastic experience.
Great time on the water today. Boat was clean and had everything we needed for a great day. Paul was a great captain with good communication about location and navigating the Burnham Harbor area. Would recommend to friends!
