“Professional vessel livery operator and boat instructor.”
Aboard since 2016
From Miami Beach, FL
Tomas was very kind and helpful. However, his boat was extremely slow - it was so slow (and small) that it made navigating the intense Miami bay boat traffic uncomfortable, and made traversing its wide areas in a appreciable time nearly impossible. It felt like driving a go cart on the highway.
Tomas was very commentating on time and responded fast! Even gave us a few options on witch boat to choose. Boat was very clean and well maintained. George who waited for us at the dock was also kind and helpful! I look forward to my next weekend adventure!
My buddy and I arrived at the marina a little early. Tomas & Josh were at the marina, even before we arrived, with the boat in the water ready to go! Tomas went over the boat with us quickly and efficiently. We were out on the water in a few minutes and enjoyed a spectacular day on biscayne bay. The boat is virtually new and performed with zero problems. We look forward to our next trip.
My cousins and I had the best time cruising in Miami in the brand new boat. The owner Thomas was awesome. Very professional, friendly and extremely helpful. This was the cleanest boat I have ever rented. I will highly recommend renting this boat from Thomas to anyone. I will personally rent this from from Thomas again on my next trip to Miami.
Excellent experience. I sent a message to Tomas on Sunday morning, got an immediate answer, and four hours later I was in his boat. Tomas did everything easy and gave us very good tips for our ride. The boat is brand new and very comfortable. We were a family of five with three “big” children and felt excellent. 100% reccomendable.
Tomas was quick to communicate with and the boat was clean and a lot of fun to take out into the Miami bay. George was also really helpful with tips on where to take the boat. I would definitely consider renting again. Thanks!
My boyfriend and I rented from Thomas this past Thursday. He was flexible with us and responded to messages and questions very promptly. The pick up drop off was really easy and after looking at about 20 other rental places in the Miami area, his were the best prices ! We will more than likely only rent from him and his team from here on out! Thank you guys so much. See you again soon! Katie and Dana
Boat is quite new. Exactly as described. helpful and friendly staff. I would recommend it for the bay.
That said, be aware of:
1) Excessive gas pricing ($120 for the tank). They wont tell you, but you can just fill the tank for a fraction of the price in the gas station when you arrive at the marina.
2) They wanted to charge us for cleaning excessive sand. I can assure you it was less than average for a boat rental (basically some water/sand mix in the floor).
3) they mention there was a stain in the boat that needed special cleaning, but could be remove just with a finger.
Bottom line: they will try to make as much $$ out of your rental. Not cool...
Of course they renter may have a different POV which I respect, but based on the behavior I left without paying any extras and I'm now waiting for a resolution from Boatsetter.
Tomas was awesome from the first engagement to the completion of the trip. He was Johnny on the spot with communication. He was very thorough on how to operate the boat. Gave a great overview of where to go like Monument and Star Island. And helpful with docking. Best money I spent on my vacation! Can’t wait to do it again! Thanks again Tomas!!!!
George and Tomas were very nice and they helped us on our tour. George gave very clear instructions, was available by phone all the time and gave ideas of where to go.
This was my first experience in a boat by our self and we will definitely repeat.
I removed 1 start because they change the time and pickup location the same day 3 hours before and that caused some inconveniences in our planning. Other than that, a perfect afternoon in the sea.
Tomas was excellent.
Pre-booking: he was communicative all time and helped us with issues that appeared.
Booking: his explanations where clear and the route super well explained
Boat: boat was perfect, all we needed and in excellent conditions
I recommend 100%
Awesome boat, very well maintained, great handling and power. Easy experience to get it at the marina and cruise the bay, many great places to go. Captain Tomas was great, very friendly and helpful with me and my guests. Will be coming back for sure!
Had a great time on the XL it was very comfortable for four people. Did a full day. Tomas was very helpful with explaining routes, areas, and all the in and outs of the boat. Very knowledgeable and genuine. We had a great time!!
clean boat. Great guys and service. But the boat is severely underpowered. If you want to cruise around the intercoastal islands at idle speed, its perfect. But its very difficult to get on plane and go any real distances. Go for their 18Ft boat with larger motor. You will be more happy.
Great boat and owner! Tomas did a great job providing instructions on how to handle the boat, checking it before departure and final checkup after we returned it.
We had a wonderful time with my wife, kids and friends, the boat is in great shape and super comfortable, I strongly recommend Tomas and his boat!
Make sure to sign and get a copy of the post rental inspection when you return the boat. 2 days after the boat was returned I got blamed for the damage both neither I or the owner saw at the time of the return. Not a pleasant experience
The experience we had on the water for a day, with our family, made our trip to Miami! Tomas was the epitome of professional, everything he said was accurate, fair, and his knowledge of everything happening in the area that day saved us mistakes we would have made. Perfect! That’s how I would describe the day.
Thank you Tomas! I can’t recommend utilizing this service enough!
Tomas and George were super to work with - very friendly and responsive. The boat itself could have been much better. We could only cruise at about 7-8 knots at wide open throttle. The trim switch on the throttle was broken, as was the automatic bilge pump. The tachometer didn’t work either, and the fuel tank only lasted for 6 hours, not the full 8 we purchased. Handling was the worst part, with the wheel having a lot of slop AND too much resistance. The fuel tank is 12 gallons, yet we were charged $90 to fill the tank - almost $8 per gallon. On top of that, the boat gave a pretty wet ride even in light chop. It was fun to get out, but not worth $405.
Tomas hands down was Absolutely amazing! He communicated throughout the entire process. He explained everything about the boat and course that made me feel very comfortable as a 1st timer. Our adventure was electric, fun and amazing!
The best, The best, the best. I'm so impressed by his customer service skills. He will always be there for you if you ever need him. He told me to call him at anytime. I strongly recommend him. I wish he would have a bigger boat for more people as well. Anyways, his bay liner is amazing and super clean. I took care of it as it was mine. Thank you Tomas!!!
We had an amazing day on the boat! Thomas was there on time and was very helpful. He gave us a map of the area and told us some fun things to check out. The boat was clean and well maintained. It wasn’t a super fast boat but perfect for exploring the area and cruising around. Gas ended up being $50 for a half day. I highly recommend this boat!
Captain Tomas is very kind and considerate. we explained everything about the tour, places, rules, safety and use of the boat. The tour is astonish. I recommend it to everyone. great. The boats are great and in perfect conditions of use
Tomas was amazing! Very responsive leading up to the booking and very helpful in getting us aboard and out safely with many recommendations for how to spend the day. Highly recommend Tomas and his vessels for anyone looking to rent a boat for the day.
We had such a wonderful expierience with Tomas boat- Perfect weather and Tomas and George have been very nice. Also did Tomas explain everything about the boat. The boat was in good condition and we can‘t hardly wait until we come back for another trip.
I rented a boat from Tomas for half a day for my self and my daughter. The boat was in perfect state and clean. Tomas provided an excellent service and he took more than sufficient time to explain details of the boat but also about things to do during the trip , islands to visit, et cetera. Value for money.
If your looking to cruise the bay and kick back this is the boat for you. If you want to head to open water and move at higher speeds I would look for something with a bit more power.
Overall the experience was amazing.
Thanks a bunch.
Thomas was awesome. He walked us thru the general details of driving the boat, as well as showed us various options for our day-long boating excursion. He was very patient with us, friendly, and accommodating. I've already recommended him to four other people, and I certainly recommend him to anyone looking for a small boating rental. The boat was great, wasn't too fast but did the job just right. We went to the Haulover sandbar with ease and felt very safe in the boat the entire time. Looking forward to doing it again!
With my family we had a gret time on the water cruising around the miami area, Thomas was extremely helpful with tips and recomendations, the boat was just what we need it, it was exelent, clean, well maintained and everything working properly , and the price was jsut right. I would definetly recomend this rental not only for the boat but also for the service that Thomas provide. Thank you
I will definetly rent again in the future
Had an amazing time on Tomas’ boat. The boat is excellent for a couple of family of 3-4 to enjoy the bay on a nice Miami day. Tomas is very accommodating and responsive. He provides everything you need to have a one of a kind experience. I highly recommend that you rent his boat.
We had a great time on the water with the boat we rented.
Tomas and Dave were very helpful, and Dave had some good tips. (even when we forgot our camera on the boat and found out about it at midnight)
When we return to Miami we surely will rent a boat from Tomas again.
Had a great time. Tomas made the rental experience a breeze, and was very responsive and informative the whole way though. Boat is beautiful and runs great. We went down to Stiltsville and saw the houses in the middle of the Biscayne Bay! Had a lot of fun - would definitely rent from Tomas again.
My husband and I rented the Bayliner from Tomas for 1/2 day yesterday so we could view Miami and South Beach from the water. We really enjoyed cruising around the inter-coastal waterway - Tomas helped us make a plan to see as much as possible in our four hours on the water. Because the boat was not rented by another party for the rest of the day, he was flexible on our start and stop time which was great. The boat was a perfect size for just the two of us and very easy to maneuver through the canals and under the bridges. We would certainly rent from Tomas again when we are back in Miami!
Perfect size boat for 4 adults in very good condition. Tomas is super nice and was very accommodating. He even picked us up at more convenient location for us for a small tip. It ended up being perfect because we took him back to his dock in South Beach and got a better sense of the boat and the islands around the bay and also got to know him a little bit more. I will definitely rent from him again.
We are local - had a great time cruising around on the boat. Thomas was on time, professional and courteous.
The boat is in great condition and equipped with cooler and a radio/Bluetooth.
Definitely will rent again!
We arrived early but the boat still had not arrived half an hour after arrival time even though we were waiting at the pier. The address given was a private club who were not at all pleased that their address was being used. There was no indication that we should wait at the pier near the club (they told us to). Once we were in the boat and had had instructions, the experience of going around the waters of Miami was great even though there was torrential rain for at least 1 1/2 hours out of the 4 hours. We were soaked. It was not emphasised that we had to pay for fuel used.
First of all we had a wonderful time, boat was in great condition, Tomas was very helpful with directions to the marina he also gave us a map to where we could go. We saw seven dolphins around the boat , my twelve year old daughter was amused! Definitely recommend it and will do it again.
Tomas was very accommodating with our last minute reservation. He provided a map with good/clear instructions which outlined where you can travel safely and had interesting places to visit marked. The boat was the perfect size for touring the bay without the overhead that comes with much bigger boats. This is our 2nd visit to Miami Beach and being out on the boat gave a unique perspective. Thanks for the use of you boat, my family really appreciated your advice on fun/interesting spots to visit.
Tomas was great; on-time and easy to communicate with beforehand. Boat was clean and everything worked well. If anything I would say the boat is slightly under-powered with 60hp - and (obviously) not a boat made for windy/wavy conditions. Still though, fully adequate for cruising in the inner parts of the bay. Would rent again!
Tomy is extremely professional and wanted to ensure that my family had a great outing. The boat is in excellent condition and properly outfitted with required safety equipment. The boat was spotless upon check-out. Tomy even sent a kind text after the charter thanking us for chartering with him. Will definitely charter from Tomy again!
We had a great time using Tomy's boat for a full day around Miami area. The boat it self is in great shape, like you would expect it from an 2015 boat. Perfect for cruising along the ICW. A full tank was enough for the whole day. Tomy was very helpful and gave us a short introduction at the start. I would always rent from him again.
