Aboard since 2014
From Arnold, MD
We had a great time with this rental! Mike is excellent to work with and provided us some very helpful tips on how to operate the boat and places to explore around the Magothy River. Our group of 8 adults fit comfortably and had a wonderful time. Highly recommended!
Had a great experience chartering this boat from Mike. He was friendly and went through the checklist in a professional manner. The boat ran smoothly and performed perfectly. If you're looking for a boat large enough to comfortably take out family or friends with room to spare, then I recommend that you reach out to Mike.
Mike and his boat were phenomenal! He is very knowledgeable and his boat is perfect for cruising around the bay. I appreciated that he took the time to show us the ins and outs of his boat and how to navigate out of his channel. The GPS also really helped with our trip. Check-in and check-out was easy and would 100% recommended!
Mike is the most kind and thoughtful boat owner. Being that we are in the middle of a pandemic, he Clorox-wiped all boat surfaces for us, and wore a mask when meeting us at his dock. The boat is well kept. Our trip was super fun, and the day was absolutely perfect. We will rent from him again! :)
The day on the water was great. Mike was very responsive in answering questions before the trip, made check-in & orientation very easy, and provided planning support for our day. As far as the boat goes, it was great. It had all of the safety/needed equipment, was comfortable, Garmin GPS, and had a Bluetooth connected stereo. We are looking forward to renting the boat again next year!
Very nice , friendly and helpful! We booked with Mike, but on the day of the trip, the weather turned bad, I didn't know we could reschedule, but Mike checked weather radar and suggested we reschedule to avoid a bad trip. We glad we listened. That day was pouring rain all day! And Mike took care all the rescheduling with the company, saved us lots of troubles (my first time renting a boat from here). On the day of the rescheduled trip, he patiently showed us how to operate the boat, give us a short tour around the area, let us get familiar with the neighborhood. We had lots of fun with the boating trip!
Mike was great. I had not driven a boat bigger than a 26 footer and that had been years ago. This being a 36ft boat Mike took me out for a 30-minute orientation. After that, we dropped him off at his dock and off we went. We spent 4 hours on the river, nice river and a lot to explore. Next time we want to get 6 hours on Mike's boat as 4 hours was just not enough.
Renting from Mike was a great experience. Really nice guy, quick to respond to communication and had the boat cleaned, fueled and ready to go the morning of our rental. Mike spent time making sure I was comfortable with the boat, spending about an hour with me before the rental period started to get familiar with everything.
My family enjoyed the day on the water, with plenty of room for everyone to lounge around, get some sun on the bow or aft deck, or get away from the crowd in the cabin.
Would gladly rent from Mike again.
Mike is super easy to work with and everything was as advertised. It was my youngest first time on a boat and she had a blast. My oldest made a friend while at Dobbins and they enjoyed jumping of the back of the boat and climbing back on. Rinse and repeat.
Really nice boat with a lot of space. Runs and rides real smooth. Mike is a nice guy and very accommodating. My only complaint is the fine print about charging 7 gallons of gas per engine hour. The only way this boat would use that much gas in an hour is if you floored it. But you will be charged the same rate for simply idling. There's got to be a more reasonable way to work in the gas cost.
Fabulous day on the water! Mike gave us a detailed orientation to make sure we knew everything about the boat before we took it out (before the clock started). He answered our questions and even took us out of the creek to the river to make sure we knew the way properly and safely...smart on his part! And definitely appreciated!
Great day with a great boat. Just perfect for the three of us, but it would have fine up to the 6 max as advertised.
The gps and depth-finder was a game changer! Really helped us a lot. And made the whole day enjoyable. Perfect weather. Perfect experience.
Renting from Mike was great. He spent some time giving us an orientation of the Clementine V to make sure we were comfortable with her. He had her prepped and fueled up. He gave us some great tips on how to spend our afternoon. There are some great spots Dobbin Island to anchor and go swimming. We appreciate Mike and looking forward to renting from him again!
We had a great experience renting Mike’s boat! Mike was very accommodating and really made sure that we were comfortable before and during the trip. He takes the time to make sure you that the boat and equipment are ready for use and to answer any questions you have. We had a great trip!
The owner of the boat(Mike) was very prompt with his responses and went above and beyond to make the rental enjoyable. The boat was well taken care of and operated beautifully. He made sure you knew what you were doing and explained everything on the boat. All in all, you couldn't ask for more. Minor glitches with the website that were worked out but may have been a problem, so stay alert that all the paperwork is correctly handled. Mike was great for that too. Highly recommended.
What a great experience. Super responsive and accommodating. We arrived early and he made my kids and I feel very welcome. I am an experienced boater but never on the Chesapeake.
Mike gave us directions and advised us of an awesome beach. My kids and I had a blast. We highly recommend!
Mike was very accommodating with regard to us and our schedule.
The boat was perfect and so roomie. We had a wonderful 8 hours on the water with our family.
Mike gave us a thorough run down on the boat. He gased it up for us after our cruise so we didn’t burn our hours doing this on our way back to the dock.
Great boat! Absolutely great day!
Will definitely do it again!
Mike was a pleasure to deal with. The boat was really nice and very fast. Had a great time following Mike's recommendations and exploring the area. Awesome for beginners because Mike took the time to do an orientation and the boat has an excellent GPS system.
Mike was an extremely accommodating host with two great boats to choose from. He provided our group with a great overview of the boat as well as the area. He also gave us some great recommendation on places to visit. I highly recommend Mike and will definitely be booking with him again in the future.
Mike was great and so nice. Very easy to work with and responded quickly. He gave us a thorough orientation of his boat and suggestions for where to go. His boat is great condition for its age (he's taken great care of it) and it's a very comfortable boat. We were 2 adults and 4 mid-teens and it easily fit our group. Loved that it had the Bimini top for shade and a large Garmin with a depth finder. Would (will) definitely rent from him again!
We had a terrific time out on the boat. Mike was great to work with, even when we were running late. He was thorough when going over everything on the boat, recommending a great beach and a terrific restaurant on the water. We Will definitely book again!
We had a wonderful time on the river over the Memorial Day weekend. Mike was kind enough to deliver the boat to the home we had rented just 10 minutes up river. He was easy to work with and the boat met all of our expectations. We enjoyed cruising to the Bay Bridge and some tubing in the river area.
We had a great experience renting from Mike. He takes very good care of the boat; it was clean and ran well. He was very responsive, gave us a thorough overview of the boat including a quick cruise with him onboard, and was a pleasure to work with through the whole process. We had a group of 7 on our trip and everyone had plenty of room to move around. The location is perfect for cruising the Magothy and heading out toward the Bay Bridge. We will definitely be renting from Mike again.
We had a great time on Mikes boat. Mike was very responsive throuout the process, gave us a great crash course in how to use the boat and navigate the water, and let us use his tube too! He was very friend;y and pleasant to deal with, and I would definitely rent from him again.
My husband and I spent last Saturday on the water on Mike's boat. It was just the two of us on the boat, but there was plenty of room for 4 or 5 more people. Mike spent time before we went out to show us the ins and outs of the boat and even took us out to make sure to point out shallow parts of the river. The day was great on the water and we anchored a couple of times to swim. All in all, I would highly recommend renting from Mike and we hope to do so again soon!
Mike could not have been more accommodating. We had a previous rental fall through and Mike set us up on less than 24 hours notice despite needing to head out of town. The boat was in great shape and we had a fantastic day on the Bay and exploring Magothy River. Definitely plan to rent from Mike again!
Mike is absolutely amazing and the boat is awesome. He had it all ready, clean, and filled up when we arrived. He took us out for 5 minutes and showed us the channel instead of us trying to figure out and get into trouble. He is a very nice gentleman. And the boat is just awesome. It was the perfect size for us. Definitely will be a regular for Mike. Highly recommended.
On Fathers day, Mike was very accommodating. Boat was ready on time and he provided informative orientation. We had a great cruuse to a place Mike recommended on the Magothy. The entire day was enjoyable. We returned a little earlier than anticipated and Mike was right there to meet us. Thanks!
This is one of the larger boats in the area on Boatbound. I had a great experience taking this boat out. The owner was great to work with. The boat is very well maintained and performed flawlessly. The only drama I ran into had nothing to do with the boat, but I am glad I was on this particular boat for the adventure. I cruised up to Baltimore with the intention of turning around to fit in a run down to Annapolis. Instead the Coast Guard stopped me because exercises were about to begin in preparation for the upcoming air show, and they wouldn't let me through the crash zone. I had to wait in Baltimore Harbor in a holding pattern for four hours. The good news was that I had a front row seat for an amazing show, and I was on this boat. This was a very nice boat to be stranded on. Great experience.
Mike was very accommodating and flexible with our family and we had a marvelous day out on the Bay. Arnold, MD is close to DC metropolitan area and has a spectacular crab house called the Point to finish the day off with. I'd highly recommend the boat and working with Mike.
Mike was excellent to work with and I would definitely rent from him again. He gave us great tips on where to boat to, including beaches, coving out, and restaurants. He was also very thorough on explaining the river and bay, so we didn't have any issues navigating. Would highly recommend renting from Mike.
Mike was extremely accommodating for our trip and took the time to acclimate us to his boat and the channels near his dock. Can't recommend him enough for your Magothy needs. Our entire group had an epic day and Mike was a big part of the experience!
We really enjoyed our time on Mike's Regal Boats 2000 (2004 model). The boat is in very good shape and appears to be well maintained for it's age. Mike was kind enough to show us out of the cove and familiarize us with his vessel. He was very efficient in the process of reviewing the boat bound agreement and getting us on the water. He provided some nice charts and some valuable thoughts on anchorages and fishing areas. The Magothy was a nice tidal river to boat on. There was marginal boat traffic for a Sunday and the nettle population was low enough that we could swim and tube with out anyone being stung. We would strongly consider renting with Mike again.
This is the second time I have rented from Mike and it was superb. He is responsive to email and has the boat ready to go when you arrive. The boat is in good shape and runs very well. The boat had no problem pulling a tube with 2 riders with 6 passengers. He has some laminated information on the area and good recommendations about where to go. The marina for gas is only 10 minutes from his dock which makes end of day fueling easy. Definitely a good deal for a day on the Magothy river.
We rented Mike's larger boat for my husband's bday, for 12 people, and had a wonderful time! Mike and his wife were very welcoming, and he spent time orienting us to the boat. I definitely recommend this boat and we will be renting again! The boat itself is very spacious for 12 people, and is in great condition, for being an older one.
We had a great time on the Magothy River with Mike’s boat. It was the second time we rented from Mike and had a fantastic experience both times. We’ll be back in the late summer. Mike is very friendly, considerate and has a great knowledge of the area, river and channel. He was also very responsive in his communication. His location on the Magothy is also a plus. He is close to the Point Crab House which was just written up in the Washingtonian as a great place for Crabs. We agree. You are in store for a great day when you book Mike’s boat.
We had a great experience renting from Mike. The was my second time renting from him, and it went great. Mike is very friendly, and makes you feel comfortable renting his boat. We appreciated the laminated pages with information about what to do in the area. The boat ran great, was clean, and performed nicely. All in all a great experience and I look forward to renting from Mike again, and would highly recommend him.
Mike was fantastic. We rented his boat to take our two kids tubing. His boat was perfect for tubing and skiing. Mike was also so flexible and responsive. We were significantly late and he was very flexible. Great experience! Beautiful location.
Mike was awesome. The boat was great as well. The rental was for a surprise bachelor party and Mike was very good at helping us prep for the day. The boat is very well maintained and we were blessed with perfect weather. I would recommend this rental and will definitely be back. Thank you Mike for your hospitality and for all the help getting us accustomed with the boat.
This was our first time using Boatbound and had a great experience. Mike was super friendly, took the time to show us around his boat and the area before we got started. We had a lot of fun exploring the area and the USNA from a different vantage point. If your looking for a great way to show friends and family around the area, this is a unique way to do it! I would highly recommend Mike to anyone. He has a larger boat for more people or the smaller one that we rented which was perfect for our group. The price was spot on to what I would expect to pay, which made our day perfect.
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.
Great day on the bay for our family of four! Mike was very accommodating (even though we were running a bit late), and keeps his boats clean and in very good condition. Our family rented the 20 foot Regal, which handled great on the choppy Bay water. The boat is clean and in great running condition, no worries while boating at all. We will definitely rent from Mike again!
Once again, another excellent experience through Boatbound. Right from the initial communication with Mike through enjoying a fabulous time on the bay. Mike's Regal was perfect for the four of us. Boat was clean, ran very well and easy to operate. I would definitely recommend this to friends and family. I am sure it will not be the last time... I would like to thank Mike for sharing his boat with the Boatbound community.
Mike was easy to contact and very responsive. The boat was everything he promised and in excellent mechanical shape. It ran like a champ and had no problem with 6 passengers and towing a 2 person tube. I would definitely rent from him again. It was a great experience!
We had a great time on Mike's Regal. The boat was exactly what we were looking for. Lots of deck room and a great swim platform and retracting ladder. It easily fits four adults or two adults and 3-4 kids. We spent the day tubing and swimming and all went fantastically well. Mike was a great host and gave us a thorough introduction to the boat and the channel into his creek. I highly recommend Mike and the Regal for anyone looking for a fun day on the river.
Superb rental experience! Mike's number one concern is making sure your day on the water is a memorable one. Boat comfortably fit our party of ten. Mike oriented me to the land and the boat, then we were on our way. Anchored for a while, swam, and got dinner at the Point Crab House. I will 100% repeat rent. Thank you Sir!
Mike provided a great boating experience on Chesapeake Bay.. Took us out on a brief training excursion to show us how to navigate the twin engine boat through small channels and how all of the boat's accessories are operated.. Plus he went beyond the terms of the agreement to help us with our unique situation.. The 36 footer is not new by any means but very comfortable, reliable, and well kept.. Highly recommend doing business with Mike Schofield..
This was a great experience! Mike was very accommodating and was quick to reply to any questions I had prior to the day of the reservation. He took the time to go over the in's and out's of the boat as well as taking us out to show us how to navigate the channel and pointed out some good spots to visit/drop anchor if we would like. Would absolutely rent from him again and would recommend you do the same!
Great rental. Our plan was to go out on the bay, but winds and currents prevented that. We stayed in the Magothy River and had a blast. Mike will help show you all you need. We had a problem on the water and Mike was available and very helpful. I would definitely recommend Mike and his boats. We will be using him again in the near future.
This was my first Boatbound experience and was flawless!!
Mike has an awesome boat in great condition.
I took 8 others beside myself including 3 grand kids who loved every minute of it!!
We all slept overnight on the boat and had an awesome time everyone enjoyed!
Mike took me out and went over all the features of the boat and made sure I was comfortable driving it before he turned us loose.
Mike was super responsive when we couldn't get other options together for a short-notice fishing trip with family & friends. His 20" Regal was a perfect size for our day on the water and generally competitively priced with other options. The condition of the boat was very clean with very few maintenance issues -- it is clear Mike cares for his boats. Mike went above and beyond, accommodating an early departure and even a friend who needed to use his washroom after having too much coffee! A day of scouting 3-4 locations with striper trolling (about 6 and a half engine hours) ran about $70 in fuel and Mike kindly provided a re-fuel option so we could spend more time on the water. We did encounter a minor propulsion "bug" throttling up to WOT but it sounded like a new issue to Mike and that he'd look into.
I would most certainly consider renting from Mike again and highly recommend others to hit him up for a caring, responsible provider.
Wow, i just had a wonderful Boatbound experience with Mike and his Regal. His Regal 20 is in top notch shape and very easy to operate, it was the perfect sized boat for my family (wife, sister and parents) for a day out on the Bay. Mike walked me through everything I needed to know about the boat and even shared some local tips about anchorages and restaurants on the Magothy River. He was very flexible with the booking pickup and drop off times so we could have a relaxing full day on the water. I hope to rent from Mike again later this season and would absolutely recommend that you rent Mike's Regal through Boatbound too.
The Mainship was great. Our group of 4 enjoyed the cruise. The vessel was very comfortable for socializing. While at port we had about 12 visitors aboard without it feeling crowded at all. Mike's customer service was great as well in accommodating the logistics of our pick up and drop off locations and times. The boat handled very well. I certainly would enjoy cruising with this vessel again if it were available. Thanks again Mike for being so accommodating and helping out with the logistics!!!
Mike is a good guy to rent from. Very relaxed and willing to trust you. The 20 ft Regal is a nice little boat and worth the rental price - rides pretty well, even with the nasty Bay chop. The bimini top helps a lot to keep you out of the sun, if you are lucky enough to get some! The boat is a bit slow to get up on plane, but once there - at around 3200 RPMs - it rides pretty nicely. Only negative is that the boat does not have an onboard head - that just means you need to plan your stops well, or do some swimming as required. There is a marina nearby to gas up before you return, so the gas was not an issue. I would certainly rent from Mike again.
This is the second time I have rented this boat from Mick and like last time we all had a fantastic time on the water. Mike is very easy and flexible to work with. The boats pick up and drop off location is very convenient to so many location and gives you a lot of choices to how you want to spend your day on the water. We had 11 people on board this time and did not feel crowded at all.
My family and I had a wonderful time on Mike's Regal. The weather was iffy so we waited right up to the last minute- Mike was understanidng and very accommodating. There were 5 adults on board and we had plenty of room. We had fun out on the Bay and in the river and coves , Mike was kind enough to take us out of his cove into the river so we knew how to navigate our way around. He suggested points of interest and restaurants. He also provided maps which were very useful. I would highly recommend Mike's Regal for a fun day on the Bay!
I rented from Mike on the 4th of July, it was a busy weekend and Mike went out of his way to make sure that our trip was a success. He helped us plan our destination with his knowledge of the area and he had the boat in top shape for us. I will definitely be renting from mike again in the future.
I wanted to rent a boat at the last minute and Mike was above and beyond accommodating. He was extraordinarily welcoming and went out of his way for us. I will definitely be renting from Mike again. As for the vessel, I highly recommend this boat whether you're going out for the day with friends or having a family outing. Everything worked properly and Mike has taken great care of it. I hope everyone enjoys this boat as much as we did.
Thanks again Mike!
The boat was great. Just the right size for the two of us (could've fit more comfortably). The location is perfect as you are about 1 hour from Annapolis and the Magothy river has a couple of great rafting spots and restaurants. Mike is great guy really easy going to work with .
We had a great experience with Mike. He was very friendly, and we felt very welcome while renting his boat. Mike showed us all the features of the boat and gave us tips on where to go. The boat was in great shape and ran well. We had a great time and won't hesitate to rent from Mike again.
Had an outstanding first experience with Boatbound and that was due from renting with Mike. Mike made sure our needs were met and provided everything we needed to ensure we enjoyed our time on his boat. His Regal was very comfortable and performed exceptionally well. I would not hestitate to rent from Mike again.
Mike took great care of us and his Regal boat ran like a dream. His pier is in a good central location on the Magothy River and our family had a blast cruising and exploring. It is clear that Mike takes good care of his boats, and everything on the boat worked perfectly. Mike was extremely flexible with pickup/dropoff times and went out of his way to help us with refueling. I strongly recommend Mike if you are looking for a nice day of cruising on the Magothy.
My crew and I had a great time on Mike's boat. The Regal was clean and ready to go with a full tank of fuel. He familiarized us with the boat and safety equipment. Helped us to finalize our itinerary with his local knowledge of the area. The day was a 10 for us on a scale of 10.
