    46 Ft Searay Express Cruiser..Dania Beach Florida

    Captain Eddie and his first mate were incredible. Communication was easy throughout, and service on the yacht was unbelievable! They recommended great places to swim and to eat, and handled everything so we didn’t have to lift a finger. Plus, the yacht was beautiful, perfect for our group of 8, and Captain Eddie is clearly a skilled boater. Highly recommend!

    RINKER Q3 Bowrider for Rent in Fort Lauderdale, FL

    Easy to book. Good communication a few days before. No worries if you have a little boating experience. If you want to dock somewhere to eat just note places aren't super easy to find and need to be patient for a courtesy slip to open. Also recommend downloading Navionics app as you can search for fuel, restaurants, etc and find spots easily. Michael was easy to work with and I'd recommend to anyone.

    Gorgeous 45' Yacht for Charter in Lauderdale

    This was our 2nd time chartering with Ray and Captain Barry. I would recommend them both again and again!! We set out for a holiday cruise to see the Christmas lights, due to COVID-19 there weren’t as many on the intracoastal, but Barry knew just where to go to find them. Loved the commentary!! We all had a wonderful time!! 5 stars for sure!!

    Amazing & Immaculate 40' Yacht rental in Fort Lauderdale, Boca, or Miami

    Gary was a wonderful captain and host. Communication was top notch! He was prompt. The boat was amazing and really nice inside. He provided water and sodas and towels. We had a party of 6 adults and 2 children and Gary was very accommodating. Also i believe the cruise was best pricing /value for an amazing boat. Gary was also very informative and we loved seeing all the sights in ft lauderdale. Thank you so much!!

    Pontoon for rent in Hollywood

    This trip exceeded me and my families expectations. I booked this boat as a celebration for my graduation and it was so nice, clean and peaceful! Exactly what I was looking for. The captain was so polite and easy to talk to. I will definitely be booking with this owner again in the future, whenever we return to the area.
