Always a pleasure dealing with Edgardo. What a breeze!
I just want to say that having rented everything from houseboats in California to 55' catamarans in the South Pacific, Nelson is as good as it gets for a boat owner. He keeps the engines and mechanical components in great shape, gave very clear instructions, was punctual (and actually very accommodating to our changing schedule), and provided all the information we could possibly need. I will definitely rent from him again in the future if I am ever back in South Florida. As for the boat, it wasn't anything like a brand new, fully loaded 18' power boat, NOR did I expect it to be based upon how little he was charging. The value we received out of the boat was immense. The first day out was right after a storm rolled through, and although we got wet in the chop, I never felt unsafe on the boat. The second day, the water was glass, and she got up on plane easily and efficiently, kept us dry, and barely consumed any fuel. We went all over Biscayne NP, exploring all the keys, as well as heading out to reefs and a wreck. Summary: I'd highly recommend Nelson and as for the boat, it's an excellent value for the low cost.
Pavel was soo helping since the beginning i had tons of questions and he answered them all without hesitation . I planned a big Company Event and wanted everything to go smoothly and he ensured that everything went well. I will recommend many and i know this wont be my last time
Eddie's boat was probably the best day of our weekend in miami. Communication - Eddie was extremely responsive, explaining in detail what to expect as well as directions on the day of, both over email and phone. The captain - Alex is THE MAN. Alex (the captain Eddie used with us) knew his way around all the waterways in Miami, even was able to catchup to other friends who had rented their own boats. We went snorkelling, checking out mansions, and just cruising around and finishing up at a beautiful sandbar. Super chill and very flexible/fun to hang out with. The boat was just sublime. I probably ruined a couple of friendships because those who could not make it on the boat were fairly upset. The boat had everything - 12 speaker sound system (AMAZING), comfortable seating, frankly awesome looks, and it is FAST. Very spacious, we were a group of 12 people and we had enough room to move about on the boat and sit very luxuriously. We had such a great time we asked for an extra hour. The only thing I would recommend Eddie change is to include captain tip/fuel estimated charges so people have a fair idea of what to expect as these were fairly significant for us. We used 100 dollars worth of fuel over 5 hours.
