    Highly recommend! Both Bob (Captain) and Cara (Crew member) were very professional. Our group rented the boat for a friend's bachelorette party, and we had a great time. Had plenty of time to use the jet ski and do the golf challenged, and enjoyed the ride around the Boston Harbor. The cabin was so clean and very spacious. Great boat trip for the day!!
