    Kyle was a really great host for my husband's 30th birthday boat ride. He was quick to respond via text/call when I had questions, allowed me to adjust the time of my booking, and was a really fun person to hang out with on the water for 4 hours! He also had a fun yoga mat/water pad that we had a blast jumping off of!

    Captain Alan was a professional from the start. As soon as I booked he called me with details. The boat was immaculately clean and new. The sound system was amazing. When I inquired about the boat he had told me he was a fun Captain. He wasn’t lying! He was super fun and fabulous. Alan is my new captain and I will be booking with him again from now on!
