Decent boat. Nice owner. Never returned or discussed deposit
Great service and people A+++
Michael and Dena were more than accommodating throughout the whole process. They were quick and responsive during the reservation period when we had questions. Michael always replied promptly. The docking facilities were newly remodeled, clean and well organized. The check in and check out process went smoothly. They are definitely 5 star hosts that go over and beyond for their guests. Our family had a great day on the boat. We will definitely rent from them again next time
we are in Fort Lauderdale.
Thank you Michael and Dena!

The boat was in great shape and was a lot of fun. Michael made pick up and drop off very easy, the boat was basically brand new and easy to handle. I can’t wait to go out again the next time we are in Ft Lauderdale.
The boat was very nice and new, just as described. Easy to handle for average boaters. Owner/manager was responsive.
Would recommend bringing your own life vests. The boat has the regular orange ones, but they are really only emergency life vests, not comfortable for water sports.
We would rent again from Michael.
Michael was absolutely amazing! I can’t thank him enough for his help and prompt responses! I highly recommend his service and look forward to using this again!
Michael was not only a great host but a genuinely nice person. He was very accommodating of my group who came late and let us go out the time that we missed. We had a kerfuffle on the way back with docking and not only was he professional but he was kind and reasonable. I know 9/10 other boat renters would squeeze money out of the customer after an incident with docking but Michael was not only kind but calm and professional. I simply can’t recommend Michael as a host enough and hope his business stays successful. He has 3 boats out for rent I believe and I think you should rent any one you can.
We had an excellent time out on the water this past weekend! The boat was in excellent condition, the only flaw being that the speedometer was not working. Michael was timely and professional, he was waiting for us on the dock at precisely our start and end times. We also had the pleasure of borrowing a cooler which allowed us to bring some refreshments on board with us.
We really enjoyed our boat rental with Michael. He was easy to work with and the boat performed well. We would definitely rent again with him!
We had a great time on Michael's boat. Highly recommend!
Everything was great...thank you Michael!
Great day, boat was clean and ran well. Michael was helpful getting set up.
Michael, was quick to respond and provided a clean, well maintained boat. Will definitely use him again.
Michael was very responsive and the boat was in excellent condition. We had a great day on the water.
Outstanding service. Jeff texted us well ahead of time to let us know he would be on site and was available by text all day to meet us upon return.
As typical of small boats, the PFDs and other required items take up most of the storage locker space so limiting the gear you bring and keeping it well contained is advisable.
If strong wind is expected ask about securing the bimini to protect it and ease boat handling.
Nearest fuel Bahia Mar is on the east side of the waterway and had strong wind and waves pushing against the dock the day we were out causing us to abort a stop there, opting instead to go about a mile further south to the Lauderdale Marina near 17th St bridge. This put us on the west side of the waterway so the SW wind coming off the dock made it easier to fend.
It was a great day and we will do it again.
We had a wonderful time on the boat we rented. It was a 19ft Caravelle, 90 hp.it did the job. We had a chance to ride the waterways. The boat was quite nice.
