    Private Yacht charter for all occasions in NY/NJ

    We had such a great time! The boat was beautiful, clean, and exactly as described. There were 6 of us and more than enough room. Captain Joel and his friend were great hosts+photographers+tour guides and what not. We will definitely be booking with them again.

    Private yacht for charter from City Island

    We had a wonderful time with Frank. We went fishing with our kids, 6 and 8 years old, and both loved the experience. He was very kind with them and found the better waters where he knew they were going to be capable of catching fish by themselves. We completed our fun experience with some swimming in the water and sunbathing. It was a lovely day and cannot wait to repeat our experience!

    Tony was so wonderful and accommodating to us on a very important day. He is a down to earth, unassuming individual -- easy to talk to, or happy to sit back and let us do our thing. A fine man and consummate professional on the water. I HIGHLY recommend him.

    42' Sedan Bridge Carver Santego Motor Yacht Charter in Edgewater, NJ

    I just want to thank Tony, his daughter and brother in law for the boat ride. I picked a 3 hour boat ride to celebrate my 28th birthday with my closest friends and everyone and everything was just wonderful. He was able to answer all my questions when communicating via message through the app as well as text messages. We already told him we will be booking again. Just from the pictures my friends & I have posted on Instagram, we have tons of people asking for the information so they can do the same.
