Great boat, great time! Chris was terrific to work with and boat and experience as pictured and promised. He met us at the dock and was helpful with senior mom and teen kids. Captain Zach very knowledgeable and helpful, too. Would rent again in a heartbeat.
The boat was awesome! The pictures don’t do it justice honestly, it’s beautiful! We had an awesome time in the playpen. We didn’t have a lily pad or any floaties but we used the lift vests and it was perfect!
The boat and Captain Cortney were amazing!
We loved the experience on Big Daddy. Chris was very helpful and cooperative throughout our trip. We would love to rent his boat again!

WEATHER: If you are unable to use the boat due to dangerous weather conditions or heavy sustained rain, (actually happening at time of rental, not based on forecast conditions) you can elect to either reschedule at no charge or to receive a 75% refund of the boat rental rate. LOCATION: We are docked at 31st street harbor which is about a 10 minute taxi from downtown. There is paid parking available nearby. CAPTAIN: All prices listed are for the boat rental only, you must hire a US Coast Guard licensed captain to pilot the boat. We can recommend several captains that are familiar with the operation of this particular vessel, and you will pay the captain directly. 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 $80-$100 + gratuity for the captain. This process is not unique to our company. It is a US Coast Guard law. RENTAL AGREEMENT: A boat rental agreement will be sent by email, following the booking confirmation, for your review and siganture. This agreement must be signed for the rental to proceed. 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.
