    We had such a fun time on Myra’s boat!! The weather wasn’t the best on the day of our event (I had initially booked it for my husband’s 30th) and she was so accommodating and allowed us to have a replacement day for a couple of hours in addition to still having the party the day of while the boat was docked!She was so responsive from the time I booked the boat right up until the day of the trip! I would call or text and was able to get to her right away! Myra and our Captain, John, really were invested in our event the entire time and cared to make it a memorable time! Would recommend them highly to anyone!!!

    Queen Myra was great! The boat is very nice and the captain and crew were very accommodating. She even let us stay an extra hour after negotiating a price. I would recommend this boat to anyone and would go on the boat again!
