  • Ask the captain if gas is included in the price of your trip. Some owners include gas in the price and some don't, so be sure to ask.

    MIAMI BAY CRUISER ON A 52 FOOT YACHT

    if I could give six stars, I would because from beginning to end Fernando responded quickly to my multiple emails..He answered all my questions and was open and willing to work with my possible changing of schedule because of the extremely bad weather the previous days and also, the requested water activities.. This is the reason I chose this Fernando because of his customer service that he provided via texts...Upon entering the boat ..it was exactly as pictured. Perfect size..and Fernando with hands on making sure we felt comfortable and safe. He added extra champagne toast and hung Happy Birthday signs because it was my daughter's birthday ..Overall I would choose him again and again and I highly recommend him for your Charter ..customer service provided through the roof ..10 Stars if it was possible

    Butch was awesome to work with! He made everything stress free and simple. I didn’t feel like I was renting a boat. Our friends and I had a nice day out on the water and really enjoyed ourselves. Thank you so much Butch we cannot wait to rent from you again!

    Valet service by John. Great experience and a great boat. Would definitely recommend. John was early, loaded us up, dropped us the water, and was waiting for use when we got back even a little early. He was willing to accommodate and adjust to our schedule as needed. Great boat and great owner. Thanks again.

    Austin was amazing. He was very accommodating during a tough booking situation, but it ended up working out just fine. I will most definitely be booking with him again and will recommend him to anyone in the future needing a boat.
