After you submit the inquiry, the owner will respond with a customized rental offer for you to review. Once you agree on the rental terms, you pay for the rental in full via credit card through GetMyBoat to secure your rental reservation.

AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING EXPERIENCE!!!! This yacht trip was hands down the best birthday EVER!!! Me and my friends had soooo much fun! The ride, the food, the good vibes, the beautiful island, the water, good energy, everything was perfect. Leonel and Juan are great people and showed us a GREAT time. Thank you again!!! (:
Prior to scheduling i hesitate because of the weather( it always can be tricky when booking in advance), but i was very glad that i did it. the weather was perfect, no issues easy to the destination. they were helpful with us. we had 6 people and its definitely enough space. the water mat, the snorkeling, the music thru Bluetooth. the grill was the perfect size for what we had. if you are going to be disappointed it would be the weather only.
I would like to say I had an amazing time on the boat. Gabriel our captain and his partner I forgot his name was so accommodating to us. They decorated the boat for my sister and I birthday, the boat was clean and beautiful with nice sounds. I would definitely recommend them to use for a private boat trip. I wanna thank you all so much for the best customer service and experience. Trust me u won’t be disappointed choosing this boat and shout out to the owner Leonel for his prompt communication and making sure I had everything I ask for!
Randy was a great tour guide on the water and he was knowledgeable about the area. Had a great day collecting shells on Sanibel, spotting many dolphins in the water, cooling off by taking a few dips in the water and just enjoying the boat ride and sunshine.
Booking this boat was the best decision we could’ve made!! Stellar communication through the booking process and leading up to reservation. Our captain Brian was super chill, and we had an awesome time!
Austin was a great captain... he took me and my boys out on the lake. He knew all the good fishing spots to try. He knew a ton about the area and the houses around the lake. I definitely recommend Austin for your next trip! He will make sure everyone has a great time!!
