Aboard since 2017
From Boca Raton, FL
We had a perfect experience from the beginning till the end of our wonderful trip. Paul is very attentive, he followed up with details before departure. He welcomed us at the meeting point and walked with us to the boat. The introduction of the boat was great. The boat is very clean, and Paul and Jessica are perfect hosts. We definitely recommend them to everyone. You can book with them with confidence. Ax & Nil
We had a very nice experience with Paul and his wife. They keep the boat impeccably clean and they are meticulous about following instructions on the boat to ensure everyone's safety. The facilities run smoothly. They have ample supplies on board for entertainment, including large fun rafts and music. You sense their boating expertise when you travel with them, making the experience pleasurable and comfortable. Both have down-to-earth personalities and make you feel right at home. Highly recommended.
Had a great time with family on Father’s Day (all thanks to Paul)
Prior to the trip Paul went out of his way to answer all my questions. Boat was there and ready at least 15 min before our scheduled departure time. Paul knows the area very well. Was not strict with time limits. Will definitely book again!
Thank you Paul
Captain Paul and Jessica are both first class people. The trip we had with them exceeded our expectations and was all we wanted and more: safe, smooth, and enjoyable. As soon as they approached the dock you felt the day was going to be great. From a clean boat, to great amenities (such as the float, drinks, and fruit), to just great conversation, our trip was one of the best days we have had in the 6 years we have been coming to the Boca area together. We will be using Paul and Jessica again, and highly recommend. Thank you for an awesome day!
Had a blast on our half day cruise down the inter coastal. Captain Paul and First Mate Jessica were fantastic. The service was spectacular and they were very knowledgeable about the area. I will definitely be booking with them again in the future.
I stayed at a house on the intracoastal in Lighthouse Point. Paul was one of only a few captains who was willing to pick us up at our dock. I was with my entire extended family, and the older adults did not want to drive 20-30 minutes to get on a boat, so this was a major plus. Plus we paid a lot of money for the house on the water with a dock. Paul came a few minutes early to give us a lay of the land, which meant when we went out we had our full time on the water. Paul also had called the evening before to ask us about our goal for the trip, so that he could plan the best route, and bring the right supplies. We wanted to look at homes on the water and enjoy a family cruise. Paul brought a cooler of beverages and ice. Paul was super friendly, and provided us an amazing time. The boat was clean and safe. Everything was done with the full expectation of an experienced and professional captain. Paul added some extra time on the boat for us for free, as we had wanted to go a little further down the water to look at some homes. 100/100 score, five stars.
Outstanding boat and Captain. Captain Paul took the time to teach our granddaughter Jamie (17) and our friend's grandson Dillon(16) how to drive the boat. His wife took videos for us and was extremely pleasant and very helpful. I highly recommend Captain Paul to anyone who wants to rent a beautiful captained boat.
A bunch of us college friends celebrated our birthdays on Paul’s boat. Paul was wonderful. When we met him in the morning he brought us balloons for our celebration. The boat was very clean and had good space for all of us. He took us on a beautiful tour of the waters through the day and recommended a great place for lunch. We enjoyed our day on the boat. One of my friends lost her diamond pendant on the boat and realized later in the night. Paul was very kind to search the boat, find it and return it to her the next morning and did not accept any money in return. We would definitely go back!
Phenomenal boat but even better Captain. I took my Wife for a Birthday cruise in South Florida and he went above and beyond. Without my request, he had balloons, drinks and had set the boat up so that it looked like I had prepared significantly for my Wife to feel the Birthday gift. We have two young kids so this was a chance for her to feel loved and get quality time together. Shame on me because I booked the boat trip the day before - at around 8 PM for a 9 AM trip the following morning, putting him in a really hard spot to try to make an impression. I would guess 1/100 captains would take the time and energy to get there early and help decorate it with such a limited period of time. Nonetheless, he pulled it off. Not only will I boat with him again, I will tell everyone about the experience.
Captain Paul and First Mate Jessica made a great trip even better. Our outing was the last day of our vacation, and our family couldn’t have been luckier to have ventured upon Captain Paul and his boat, Ocean Time. The boat was immaculate and Captain Paul’s knowledge of the water was amazing. We went to a sand bar where we were able to walk out in the waist deep water — so amazing. He even gave our two kids turns at the wheel, making it fun and educational. You couldn’t be in better hands! We can’t wait to return next year and repeat our trip with Captain Paul.
Captain Paul (and his Wife/First Mate, Jessica) have an incredible yacht and helped celebrate our dad's 80th Birthday -- including tying up some birthday balloons on the stern (which was a nice surprise)! It was my first time chartering and Capt. Paul could not have made it easier. There was plenty of space for our party and there is ample room for food/drink storage. Capt. Paul proposed cruising along the intercoastal and stopping at Lake Boca for lunch/swimming. This worked out perfectly and everyone had an amazing time. I look forward to celebrating the next family gathering on Capt. Paul's yacht!
My family had the most wonderful day boating with Captain Paul and his first mate Jessica. Their boat is beautiful and they are skilled boaters. It was so pleasant interacting with them they were like part of our family. They went out of their way to accommodate us, saying good bye was very sad. We can not wait to go for a repeat trip!! Excellent experience!!
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!!
