From Boca Raton, FL
Really enjoyed Capn Paul. Very easy to coordinate pick up, what we wanted to do, and drop off in West Palm. Enjoyed hanging out at Peanut Island and cruising the intercoastal. Safe, easy, fun. Would definitely be happy if he captained the same or another boat we rented.
Paul was great! Super helpful/accommodating and had extensive knowledge of the area. From good swimming spots, to local food eateries, he knew where to go. We even got a nice treat, and got to see the blue angels perform at the Fort Lauderdale airshow! Thanks again!
Renting from Paul was a wonderful experience. Me and my group of guys came down from Chicago for a long weekend in the sun. We decided to rent a boat, and after seeing his prior reviews, we decided to go with Paul. The other reviews are not wrong, Paul was a great host, he was very informative about the area, and his boat was fantastic. I would wholly recommend Paul and his boat. P.S., his Captain was also an engaging host.
Paul was an amazing captain for our half day boat trip! From the minute we stepped aboard we knew it would be a great day! He was so welcoming, and accommodating to what we wanted out of the day. He went above and beyond with providing us exactly what we were hoping for. The boat was so nice and well stocked. Paul had great knowledge of the area and planned the perfect trip on the water, asking us what we were interested in seeing and doing while aboard. We would definitely recommend taking a boat trip with Captain Paul- it will be the highlight of your vacation!
This was by far the best boating experience we've had. Paul and his wife were knowledgable and not intrusive but super friendly. My 3 yr old son loved them both and they were great with kids. We felt completely safe the whole time. We never used the cabin because it was such a nice day, but if we needed it - it was perfect size for a group of people. We will 100% be renting again with Paul.
It was a great experience! We all had such a nice time and captain Paul was great. He was very nice, respectful, and the girls loved their time with him! Highly recommend!! The trip was beautiful and the boat was very clean with all the amenities needed for the day.
Great experience with Paul and his wife. We were looking for a chill day and they absolutely provided it. He even went out of his way to drop us off in Del Ray which was over an hour from where he docks the boat. Great boat, great people, great experience.
What a wonderful experience!!! We feel so blessed to have met Capt. Paul & Jessica, everything was perfect!!! They were so kind and professional. The boat is exactly what we were looking for and it was so nice and clean. We all loved it !!! 😍 The weather was perfect, the vibe was beautiful and they made us feel so comfortable. I truly recommend it. They deserve all the 5 stars and more!!!
My five friends and I were wishing to rent a boat with a captain. This was a last-minute idea and Boatsetter guided us to Capt. Paul and his boat “Ocean Time”.
It was very worthwhile. Paul is a skilled captain and a very nice guy. He was always attentive to our needs and did not hesitate to share with us all his knowledge of the surrounding areas that we cruised. Moreover, his boat is clean and in very good shape.
We are looking forward to doing this trip again and would strongly recommend the boat “Ocean Time” for anyone’s next cruise.
Such an awesome time with Captain Paul and his 1st mate Jessica on their beautiful boat! Our family of 5, including a very active 3 year old, were delighted with the whole experience! We enjoyed touring & sightseeing on the beautiful intercoastal and then relaxed and swam in gorgeous Lake Boca. The boat was spotless and so comfortable. Perfect for a day out on the water! Paul and Jessica couldn't have been more accommodating....and felt like part of our family by the end of the day!! Would definitely book again!!!
Paul was an awesome captain that I would highly recommend! He was very easy to work with to coordinate the boat trip, accommodated all of our needs before getting on the boat and during our outing, and was just an overall nice guy! The boat, Ocean Time, was beautiful and well-kept. We had an awesome day and would definitely use Paul as our captain and love to go out on Ocean Time again!
Captain Paul & his 1st mate Jessica did an amazing job helping me with my proposal. I had a basic idea of how I wanted to do it but Captain Paul helped me put it all together and execute it flawlessly. Despite trying to plan everything there was a very high chance of rain the day of the proposal. Captain Paul was on top of it and was able to get me where I needed to be in the gaps between the rain. The boat was also beautiful and a great setting for our proposal pictures. He even went above and beyond by getting some roses and had a banner that said “She Said Yes” which was the perfect extra touch to our photos and our experience. Him and his first mate Jessica made us feel very comfortable the entire day. I would recommend Captain Paul and his boat to anyone, whether it be a casual ride or your dream proposal! Thanks for all the help Captain Paul, I would not have been able to do this so seamlessly without you!
Paul was a perfect captain for us, he was nice, responsible and took great care of my friends and made our trip on the boat “Ocean Time” just wonderful. Everyone on the boat felt so happy and comfortable. He is also really knowledgeable about boating as well as fishing. We have a house in Deerfield Beach and Captain Paul agreed to pick us up at our home which was not that far away, he also waived the pick-up fee which we really appreciated. Thank you very much for everything! We will definitely do more boat trips with Captain Paul and Ocean Time when we are back in town.
Paul and Jessica were awesome! Made my family and I very comfortable for our day seeing the beautiful coast. Paul is very knowledgeable about boating and will be teaching my husband lessons before we buy our boat. Thank you guys!!!!! Your awesome!!!
Never having used Boatsetter or even being in Boca before, we were a bit nervous planning a trip with friends who were coming from all over the U.S. Paul was quick to respond and shared different itineraries for us to choose from. The boat is beautiful and the weather was absolutely perfect! We were celebrating birthdays and he had balloons, drinks and even a veggie platter for us! Paul chose a meeting place that was also more convenient for us (only half a mile away). Those little touches helped make the day even more perfect. We would highly recommend Paul and if we ever find ourselves back east, would hope to make this a regular excursion.
We (6 guys on a bach. party) enjoyed a 1/2 day charter with Cap't Paul & 1st Mate Jessica. What a blast! Paul put together a great itinerary of cruising the inter-coastal & then hanging out at the sandbar at Lake Boca. It was the perfect combo of enjoying the ride and beautiful homes in Boca. Followed by swimming and enjoying the other sights and sounds at Lake Boca. Paul had the perfect boat for the people who wanted to lounge on the pad in the front or swim off the back. With plenty of places to sit and enjoy food and drinks and also a bathroom it was a luxury experience. Paul even threw in some extra time for us to keep having fun! After arriving back to shore and talking, we were happy we sprung for Cap't Paul & Ocean Time! A truly memorable experience! Can't wait to return and do it again!
Capt Paul was our capt for Floatopia Peanut Island!!! Very knowledgeable about the boat, speed limits, laws, and the ocean itself. He kept in close contact and reached out to me a few days before just to get a feel for the type of day me and crew wanted to have!!!!! And he delivered!!!! He was very attentive while we docked and made sure we were safe!!!! He even took time to capture pictures of us cause we were so busy having fun!! Definitely would recommend using him if ever in a need of a Captain!!!! Thank you so much Capt for making this one of the best days!!
