Hi, my name is Gil Gordon and I hold a USCG commercial captain license for vessel up to 100 GT. I established Galene Charters after years of captaining charters in Miami Beach and New York. Due to an injury I must limit my time on the water, but wanted to stay in the industry to share my experience

Great experience for a bachelor party! I’d recommend this!
We were 14 of us and choices for a boat were limited. We were in Miami to celebrate our friend's 50th birthday. We booked this months in advance. Captain Nick was late in picking us up from the Pier but he made up for the time lost and gave us our 3 hours of paid time for the boat. He also was not very happy in taking us to the itinerary we had agreed on with the booking company.
At the end of the trip, we lost a iPhone/wallet. Unfortunately, the Captain and his assistant were not cooperative and were so mean and rude. They were not helpful in letting us search the boat and all cabins thoroughly. The assistant especially was in a rush to leave and hose down the boat. She was such a mean woman. Next day we called the Captain and requested to speak to this assistant. It took her two days to respond to us. We had no choice but to file a police report. The water was calm and the boat was not rocking. The phone mysteriously vanished.
Awesome time! Highly recommend.
We were looking for one hour private trip with a captain, to take some beautiful photos for our Instagram.
No better choice than this spacious pontoon on the Biscayne bay waterways. Thank you for the rare opportunity to go out for ONE hour:)
Capt. Gil was very quick to respond and accommodating. The captain and crew were friendly and helpful. They made sure we had everything we needed. My friends and I couldn’t have had a better time! I would book another trip with them in a heartbeat and strongly recommend them!
We had the best time! 100% would recommend to anyone looking for a boat day!
We booked this boat for a bachelorette party and greatly enjoyed our experience! Gil was very responsive when planning the trip and Captain Chad and Fernanda were so friendly, fun and a pleasure to travel with! My friends and I all had an amazing time and made lifelong memories together on the boat! We would definitely recommend Gil and Galene Charters to everyone!
