    My group and I had such an amazing time on this boat! Jim was extremely quick and responsive with communication and was able to accommodate my party with our requests. The crew was so nice and they took great care of us onboard all evening! We had a 4-9pm time slot and the sunset was one of the highlights for everyone. The boat was a perfect size for our group and we loved it. Paddle boards were also an added bonus. Would definitely recommend this crew!
