Had a great time out on the water for my wife's birthday on Mike's Mainship! Mike took the time to provide an excellent orientation, which included a thorough advance walk-through of the boat's features and operations. Mike was great and provided a ton of good tips to maximize our time on the water, which included lunch at The Point and a cruise over to the anchorage behind Dobbins Island. I highly recommend renting from Mike.
I chartered the North Pacific 43 captained by Gerry Travers for a half day cruise from La Conner to Utsalady Bay off Camano Island. We were completely happy with our cruise and with Gerry. Gerry provided a good safety orientation to the boat prior to departing showing us fire extinguishers, life jackets, etc. Gerry is gregarious and charming and one could easily chat with him for hours. We did enjoy that but Gerry was also completely comfortable with my husband and I going up top and snuggling together to enjoy the cruise. Gerry commented more than once that, "it's your cruise, so do what makes you happy". We highly recommend Gerry and his beautiful and well equipped trawler.
My girlfriend and I spent the weekend in Folly, and decided to rent a boat for day. We had never rented a boat in the Charleston area before, so we did not know what to expect. Well, we had the BEST experience, and we owe it all to John. He was extremely responsive and attentive through the entire rental process. When we pulled up to the dock, John had the boat ready to go, gassed up with 30 lbs of ice in a Yeti cooler. We were very impressed and we spent the day cruising the Stono River and Charleston Harbor - it was awesome! We plan to make this an annual trip, and we will definitely be renting from John again!
