This was the perfect boat for our group of 12. The boat was just as it looks in the pictures, there was plenty of space, and everything you could ask for for an afternoon on the lake and playpen. We chose Kevin from the list of captains provided to us, and he was a great host!
Chris was AMAZING! 10/10, the captain was super nice as well. They accommodated my birthday so well. If you’re looking to book this is your sign too. We were able to bring food and drinks. It was no smoking but that was okay. I definitely will be booking again.
This is the second time I've rented this boat, and I'm planning to do so again this summer! Captain William is amazing. He kept us safe but is also super laid back and cares about ensuring we have a good time. The boat was a perfect size! It's also a great layout, everyone can fit on the seated areas of the stern, and it's also nice to chill out on the bow when we are anchored. I definitely recommend this for everyone!
First timer here. Wasn't sure what to expect but Chris was fantástic!! The boat was clean and very accommodating. We worked with Dan as our captain and cannot recommend him enough. Communication was great and he was easy to work with. Thank you both for a great experience!
This entire experience was great from start to finish. Any time prior to the trip there was great communication and leading up to it. It made the day of extremely relaxing and enjoyable. I will definitely book with Chris again. I can't thank him and his team enough.

You are not limited to only the captains on the list, you are able to hire a different USCG licensed captain. We recommend a budget of $100 + gratuity for the captain. This process is not unique to our company. It is a US Coast Guard law.

WAIVERS: Our insurance company requires that all passengers sign a liability waiver. This waiver must be signed by all passengers prior to the boat's departure from the dock.
