  • Excellent!! Gary was exceptional and very professional. Made booking and communication really easy. Beautiful boat made it a dream. Will definitely be back and highly recommend!

  • Gary was prompt in communication prior to the trip and a wonderful host. We had not been to Lake Geneva in years and enjoyed seeing it again and having a guided tour by water. The teens in our group thoroughly enjoyed their time on the boat and tubing.

  • Gary was a perfect host and captain. He is very knowledgable of the lake and mindful of safety while maintaining a fun and joyous atmosphere. I highly recommend for the discerning boat enthusiast.

  • Gary hands down made taking my daughters on their first boat ride remarkable! Gary is truly a people person and is all about his passengers safety while ensuring they have a blast! Gary is very knowledgeable about the area which is great if you want to do the scenic thing but is also a awesome captain if you want do have a great time tubing or swimming. Not to mention his boat is AWESOME!!!!!

  • Gary’s boat was immaculate and our group of 6 + him as a captain had plenty of room to lounge. We went tubing in the early part of the trip when the water was calm, swam a little and cruised around the lake quite a bit. Such a fun day out on the lake!!! Thanks Gary!!!

  • Gary was super accommodating for our trip, and went above and beyond to make sure the group was having a good time! Leading up to the day we were boating, he was very responsive and helpful. Made the whole experience very easy. Would absolutely recommend!

  • So fun! Great boat and Great Lake for relaxing or swimming/tubing. Gary was a great guide and a fun host!

  • Gary was a great host. Lots of stories and history of the lake. He went out of his way to make sure our teenagers had a lot of fun tubing and swimming while making sure everyone was safe. The boat was also very nice and clean. We would definitely take another trip.

  • Gary was a great captain and our group really enjoyed our time with him! He cared about safety and made sure everyone had a great time too!

  • What an amazing experience! Gary has a beautiful, pristine boat. Like new. Gary himself is a fantastic individual; he went out of his way to ensure a great afternoon for my father in law’s 70th Birthday. Gary’s hospitality and his boat are second to none! Can’t wait to get back on board!

  • We had a wonderful time out on Lake Geneva with Bill. He was extremely knowledgeable and hospitable. Prior to our afternoon on the boat, my communication with Gary was seamless. He responded to any questions I had within an hour or less. We would highly recommend cruising with Gary and Bill to anyone looking for a great afternoon on Lake Geneva!

  • Gary was great. Very personable and very good with our kids. We had a blast tubing and enjoying the lake. I could not ask for a better experience.

  • Great afternoon on Gary's boat! Service oriented, knows a lot about the lake. Passenger safety always front of mind as well as ensuring outing meets expectations and fun is found. We had a bunch of teens tubing and swimming off the boat, they loved it and also liked Gary. Many thanks!!

  • Gary surpassed any expectations we might have had. His boat was immaculate, fun and a perfect size for our family. He was such a gracious host. We loved spending the day with Gary and he was amenable to doing whatever we wanted. We went tubing, cruised and swam. The best day of our summer. Thank you Gary. We will see you again soon.

  • The Crownline Mercury is a luxurious speedboat with comfortable seating and a beautiful ride. The owner, Gary was our Captian. Gary is an amazing host, always making sure everyone is having a good time and getting the most out of their experience. He loves to keep the party going! I would definitely rent with him again.

  • Our experience with Captain Gary & his Crownline E6 XS exceeded our expectations. The boat was in meticulous condition, and very comfortably fit our large party. We cruised the lake, dropped anchor and went for a swim, and went tubing for the rest of the day. It was the best day I could’ve imagined.
    The hospitality shown by Gary made it like going boating with an old friend. He gave us an awesome day, Captained the boat like a pro, let us have a blast while being safety conscious during the process. This is my boat of choice for future all my rentals.


  • Gary took out our bachelorette party group of 10 girls (ranging in ages from 21-58) for a half day on the lake. From beginning to end, he was extremely flexible, working with us regarding our desired times and was super quick to respond to messages. His boat was immaculate and exactly as described. We went tubing, which was a blast, and tied up for some swimming. Gary ALWAYS made sure everyone was having a good time, making sure everyone was safe, had a drink, and was enjoying themselves.

    Before we went out, we thought it might be strange to have a random stranger with us but within minutes of meeting him we knew he was the perfect fit for us. I would absolutely recommend Gary (and his boat 😜) for your boating needs. We can't wait to get back up there for another day on the lake!
