From before the pickup until drop off, the experience was top notch. Communication was excellent. Boat was fully equipped with everything you could need for a great time. Captain Dave was an excellent host and we had a great time.
Went out with capt Dave with 8 kids and 2 adults. Dave was very safety oriented and knowledgeable about the lake. His boat was clean and ran flawlessly. Dave worked hard to give us the best experience we could have hoped for and we had great conversation. All in all I would recommend a day on the water with Dave to anyone and I’m hoping to get out with him on a regular basis.
It was absolutely amazing! I booked this trip 2 days in advance and Captain Dave had the best communication with us. He took us to two spots on the lake and we had a blast at both. Plenty of room and lots to do in the water. Will definitely be using his service abs boat again in the future!!
Dave was honestly amazing! Since the booking he had great communication. When it looked like it was going to rain he reached out to discuss our options. We decided to still go on the lake and the whole experience was awesome. His boat is beautiful, all the floaties were great and Dave was such a thoughtful captain. Dave is super personal, helped when needed and allowed you to have your space.
Captain Dave & his beautiful boat gave our group the most amazing time! From the start of the trip to the end it was all so perfect. Whether we just wanted to float around and get in the water or just relax and enjoy the cruise, he made it happen. He even showed us how to jump into the water from the top of the boat! It was all so much fun and a great time. I strongly recommend anyone interested in celebrating a birthday, special event, or just to relax to book with Captain Dave! You will not regret it. Thank you Captain Dave for a fun experience!
Captain Dave is an easy going, fun spirited, well traveled, very social, experienced boater that has been navigating Lake Lanier for 18 years. He knows all the great spots to throw an anchor out and host a fun, lazy lake day for you and your group. Or if it’s an upbeat party time you want on the lake, he’s got that gear too and has a somewhat “notorious" reputation for hosting lake parties a time or two) Be safe and have FUN on Lake Lanier
