There are no words to describe how perfect our day was. From the start Captain Francois was always quick to respond to questions and requests. Communication was seamless and prompt. The boat is truly beautiful and one of a kind. Extremely clean and well maintained. The front area is perfect to sit have a snack and drink and admire the scenery. From the moment we stepped foot on the boat (a birthday present for my wife's 40th) we were taken care of, fed, hydrated, and kept safe. We went to a secluded beach where chairs and an umbrella were set up, drinks in hand, and anything that we asked for was promptly executed. We were provided privacy as well to enjoy the beautiful beach. The lunch was spectacular, Annette went above and beyond providing requests and made a beautiful and delicious cake for my wife's birthday. She made great drinks too! She made sure we drank enough water as well. We were able to also swim with the turtles nearby. Captain Francois always communicated with us about safety and telling us about the area. We didn't want the day to end. This is the perfect experience for families and a group of friends who enjoy relaxing.
Captain Francois is the best. We had so much fun on his yacht. It was an amazing experience. He constantly made sure we had everything we needed and his energy was infectious. His wife also made an excellent lunch and treated us like family. I 100% recommend Captain Francois! You won't regret it.
Where do I begin? Captain Francois is amazing, the Bonaparte is incredible, and the crew and the food are all outstanding as well. I had originally planned a yachting event for a group of ~40 VIPs with another captain, but it fell apart at the last minute - yikes. But then I found Captain Francois through GetMyBoat and he SAVED the day, at the last minute, no less! He contacted two other captains to put together a fleet of three yachts so that our event could go on. Our people had an amazing time, and the messages keep coming in that they'd never been to a community-building/networking event like it. I credit this to Francois and his crew for creating such a special and memorable environment and experience. His commitment to delivering above and beyond is commendable; you are in the best of hands with Captain Francois!!!
*5 Stars* Can't beat an owner / captain. Communications could not have been simpler. The boat provides the ultimate in shade and comfort. The boat is beautiful. It is an older boat that has been meticulously maintained and provides charm and elegance. They do not make them like this anymore. Staff could not have been more inviting and helpful. We snorkeled, jumped off the roof, rented some jet skis (highly recommend), drank, and relaxed. I would highly recommend.
We were really happy to have picked this boat as we wanted a vintage look and feel. We liked it better than other modern boats we charter before. The service was impeccable from the beginning to the end and the food was amazing (surf and turf and more) compared to previous experiences we had on other boats. We highly recommend to charter Bonaparte with Captain Francois and his wife. You won't regret it.
