Really good experience. We had such a great time and the captain was really nice with all of us.
Nelson was the first one to respond of 3 request, communication was excellent and he answer all my questions throughout the process. He was on-time and very detail with instructions. The boat was in great shape and ran flawlessly. We look forward to renting again in the very near future! Thanks Nelson
Great boat..... Sleeps well and attracts attention where ever you go.. If you don't know how to navigate shallow water, get help for your first day. The bay is tricky.... The bow thrusters work great.... Expect to average 1 mpg and fuel costs Are about $1 higher than @ your average gas station. We can't wait to go back
Scott, was a pleasure to deal with. The starter develop a problem and he could not use the boat the second day as planed. He was very understanding and is aware that sometimes unexpected things happen. I took the boat to the Marine Repair Shop, and the starter was replaced with a premium one. I have offered Scott, a one day free rental in the future when he returns to FL.
The description of the boat is not accurate, needs maintenance. We got stuck in the ocean for about 20 minutes because the boat wouldn't start. The boat does not have navigation nor a radio (walkie-talkie radio) which we informed the "captain" before we left on our trip that was a minimum requirement to have channel 16, he stated he had informed the owner but there is only so much he can do and asked that we use our cell phones to call 911 if we needed help. One of the reasons we booked this boat was also because of the "water sports entertainment" which again we asked before we left on our trip, captain stated everything was under the seats but when we got to the ocean the pump electrical cord was broken and we were not able to inflate the tube. We also paid for a full day and the "captain" arrived about 40 mins late. Speakers were blown so our phones sounded better. We tried to anchor the boat but of course since someone had tied the anchor with a very weak rope, the anchor is now at the bottom of the ocean. The seat where the cooler is located is still broken or at least if felt like it was because anyone that sat there kept sliding out, I had also asked the owner about this before booking it and was told it was fixed. For the price I'd recommend to keep looking. I have rented several boats in MIami/Fort Lauderdale and definitely had a better experience.
Beautiful Sea Ray, ran well, perfect for cruising the ICW. Pete was informative and thorough and made renting from him an ease. Highly recommended!
