Where to Go / What to Do.
We suggest water sports like tubing and kneeboarding in a cove close to the marina, anchoring in a cove and relaxing in the waves on floatables tied to the boat, grill something up on the boat, or just jet around where the South River meets the bay. Rod holders are available upon request if you want to do some fishing.
If you're an experienced boater, or when the wind is low (and forecasted to stay low, like 1-4 mph, then a trip out into the bay where you can see the bay bridge and lighthouse is fun. With any wind though, it gets too choppy for this size boat, so this would be an "as wind permits" kinda thing. We recommend sticking with tubing, floating and fishing.

Super nice family with a lovely boat that goes out of the way to make sure you have a good time. They had the boat ready and all staged up for us with lots of good communication and supporting docs leading up to the rental. Provided me all kinds of good info on the day of and had everything we needed for our day. Made sure my daughter had a great birthday with all the boating supplies we asked for. Thanks for a great time.
John and his wife Aimee have a very professional rental process that they have down pat. They send a whole pdf of info on operating the boat and navigating the area, which was super helpful! They also provide great recommendations for the area. Their boat is just what we needed, a good reliable boat with enough space for 6, plus some fun toys for the water!
We had a great time in the sun on John and Aimee's boat. The boat was comfortable for 6 adults tubing and sun lounging. I was concerned about the power with that many people, but we had plenty of power planing at 25-30mph and for South River tubing. We were able to get out to a smooth Bay early in the morning, but I wouldn't recommend venturing out in any chop.
Check in/out experience was easy and John provided in advance a great guide to the boat, the area, and fun things to do. I especially liked the mounted iPad navigation complete with marked waypoints for sunning spots, wakeboarding and dockside restaurants.
We rented this boat as a surprise birthday present for my husband. John and Aimee were extremely friendly and helpful the entire time, from start to finish. The boat was in great shape and we had no issues whatsoever. We had an absolute blast all day long and didn't want to get off the boat! We definitely plan to rent from them again in the near future.
Thank you John, for a great experience. The level of service provide by Mr. Burley was exceptional. Greatly exceeded my expectations. He was very accommodating and trailered his bowrider to our location. The instructions and tips he provided were very complete and I would not hesitate to rent from John again.
John was very nice and super responsive. There was a slight mechanical issue with the boat during the rental day, but we were able to work out the issue due to John's responsiveness and phone availability during the day. Would definitely recommend him to a friend!
