    28’ Pro Cat for rent with Captain

    Olaf took us to all of the hot spots - the sandbar near the lighthouse, anchor and swim in the ocean and a rope swing off the intercostal! What a fun day cruise! Made our girl’s trip for my daughter’s 15th birthday especially memorable. Thanks Olaf!

    Gorgeous Viking 70' Motor Yacht Available In Fort Lauderdale And Miami

    The experience could not have been more perfect. The boat is absolutely gorgeous, and Captain Bruce and Yancy were wonderful. They took us to a beautiful place to swim and gave a lovely tour of the area. This was worth every penny and we cannot wait to do it again.

    Had a great afternoon with Captain Eddie. He navigated a busy Air Show / Mothers Day Sunday afternoon, got us to the best viewing area on the waterway. Overall, very relaxed time and the kids loved it. Will book again with Captain Eddie.

    Sailing Charter On 39' Catalina Sailboat In Fort Lauderdale, Florida

    Sailing with Captain Charlie was our group's first time sailing. To say we had an ideal first experience is an understatement. Captain Charlie was down to earth, super knowledgeable, and has a great sense of humor. My fiance thoroughly enjoyed her birthday, as did the rest of us onboard. We'll definitely book again. Don't hesitate... Just BOOK!

    Amazing & Immaculate 40' Yacht rental in Fort Lauderdale, Boca, or Miami

    This was a celebration for my fiancé’s birthday and it was simply the best day for the water. The captain Gary was amazing ! He let us do our thing and made me feel so safe for the first time bringing my baby on a boat. Five star rating because we had five star service. I would definitely use this boat again and again !
