Captain Pete was responsive throughout the booking process and really made me feel comfortable with booking with him ahead of time. He was very friendly and approachable on the day our of boating, which made our experience even more lovely. We felt safe on the pontoon throughout the entire day. We were able to swim a bit and then cruise around the lake. Would definitely recommend!
Our extended family group enjoyed a few hours out on the Lake, and it was a perfect outing. Pete is a great captain, and was flexible in taking us to the best spots to cruise around but also to swim and stop for lunch on the boat. We hope to get out on the boat with Pete again in the future!
Captain Pete was wonderful! The boat was the perfect size for our group and we had a fabulous afternoon out on the lake. Pete was professional, kind, and in tune with our group's needs. Thank you, Pete! We had such a good time.
Pete was great; very flexible, timely and great with communication. He was an excellent driver with being mindful of waves of Mtka., knowing the lake well and also understanding the complexity of the lake with other drivers around. I'd book with him again, absolutely.
We celebrated my friend's bachelorette out on the lake with Captain Pete. He provided a stellar experience from booking all the way through drop off. Great communication, had plenty of suggests, and the amenities of the boat and afternoon with him included anything we could've thought of. Would certainly recommend Captain Pete and his boat for your trip!!
