Everything was as expected. Although we had to reschedule our initial charter, the process was very seamless and Robert and his team did a great job of making sure we had a great experience. Special shout out to Captain Jamie and his deck hand Tony for taking care of us and making sure we had an amazing time! They've earned a repeat customer!
My 11 girlfriends and I rented Robert's boat for 5 hours and had an awesome experience. The pictures shown do Robert's boat no justice. Its beautiful inside and out. The bow is extremely big and great for laying out and catching the sun. The rear and under cabin were extremly roomy and comfy as well. Captain Jamie and his deck heand Niko were GREAT. They were professional, attentive, and a fun pair to captain our boat! Robert's communication and follow-up was very good as well. Will definitely book this boat again!
