Reviews of James (21)

  • We were a group of 5 guys and had a great time despite iffy weather—Captain Jim and his son were very nice and very accommodating. Boat is more impressive in person than in pictures! Really appreciated the communication leading up to the trip, Jim was flexible and willing to work with us. Would highly recommend and will be contacting Jim in the future for another trip!

  • Great tour for our party of 11.
    Captain Jim and his trusty first mate did all they could to make our day the best.
    Felt safe and the ship was exceptionally clean with all the convenient of home.

  • We had an amazing time on this boat! It came with everything you could possibly need so all you had to bring was food and beverage. Very hospitable and friendly. We will definitely be renting this boat again!

  • Jim and Mason are the best! They were so friendly, accommodating and helpful. Their boat is beautiful. We could not have asked for anything more. We will absolutely be back!!

  • He was amazing, made me and my family feel safe and welcomed at all times. Totally recommend this boat!

  • James was an awesome Captain and host. Wonderful day out on the water with him and mate Mason. It was simply perfect.

  • We had an amazing time on this boat. James is an excellent captain. Thank you for everything :)

  • 5 star trip! Captain Jim and Tammy were absolutely amazing! Captain let my 6 y.o. son drive the boat and take awesome pictures. Tammy was very helpful with food and drinks. She made sure our glasses were always full :) lol
    The boat is amazing! Very clean and comfortable. Definitely renting with them again!

  • Incredible time to summarize our day on the water with Captain Jim and Mason. Both were more than accommodating, helpful, friendly and did everything to make our day a great one. We celebrated my Father's 60th birthday out on the ocean and watched the air and sea show. We had an awesome day that we will not forget. The boat is absolutely beautiful, clean, brand new just as on the pictures. Comfortable even for a large group of people. The Crew and Boat were amazing and beyond our expectations. Can't wait to be back cruising again with Captain Jim and Mason. Thank You Guys for an incredible day! We will be back!

  • The boat was amazing! Captain Jim and Mason went out of their way to make sure all our guests were happy and well taken care of. Very profession crew and respectful crew. Thanks again! Highly recommend.

  • great time w Capt Jim and mate Mason!! thanks guys!!

  • Jim was a great captain. Asked what we wanted to do. Was extremely patient, pleasant and so accommodating. Would absolutely hire him again.

  • James and Nadia were great! They really made us feel so comfortable. They even let my kids “co-captain” the boat. Would definitely go again!

  • James and Tammy were absolutely amazing! Our group had the best time, everyone is still raving over it. Tammy was amazing, asking to take our photographs, telling us where to pose, the pics came out great! The boat was immaculate beyond words! Captain J was more than accommodating to our crazy group and all their requests. We truly cannot thank you enough for all your efforts to make our trip the absolute talk of the year. Thank you both again. Everyone is already planning our next outing with you!!

  • Tammy and Jim were friendly and professional. The boat was clean and in good shape. We had a relaxing cruise down the intra-costal and up the coast.

  • Captain James and mate Sheba were exceptional in their attention to our family. They provided service above and beyond the average captain and mate. They provided waiter class service for our food we brought on board and had a wide variety of soft drinks and serving supplies to help us enjoy ourselves. The boat was also exceptional in it's cleanliness and comfort. There are multiple seating areas on the bow, middle of the boat and stern so our party of seven could spread out. An awning and air conditioning provided shade and cooling air on a hot sunny day. They were very friendly and helped us to physically move around the boat. Sheba was always available to take pictures, serve food and refreshments and find seating on the bow and James let us take pictures driving the boat. Aside from being very friendly the captain is very safety conscious and we felt comfortable in his hands. We highly recommend this charter. His rates were also very attractive compared to many others I contacted. He responded quickly to email queries which is very important for me. Thanks a million Captain James and Sheba. We all felt like they were part of the family.

  • Excellent captain. Very accommodating and extremely responsive. The boat is spotless and any request you have he will do his best to assist. Will be using again. Highly recommend!!

  • If you are searching this site for the perfect chartered motor yacht, with a top notch professional Captain and an awesome First Mate, then stop looking right now because you have found the BEST! No other could measure up to this one! Captain Jim and First Mate Sheba navigated the Ft. Lauderdale waterways with utmost courtesy and finesse on this gleaming, outstanding vessel and gladly tended to our every need. They created a fun, relaxed atmosphere as we sailed and were quite entertaining! The four of us felt immediately welcome as soon as we boarded the ship and after 1/2 day aboard, Captain Jim and Sheba more than succeeded in making this "bucket list" adventure one to be remembered and talked about for a long time to come. Sheba made sure we had plenty of photo ops, snapping lots of pictures for us to share, and never let our drinks and snacks go empty. We loved seeing the many mega yachts and multi-million dollar homes while cruising along and Captain Jim gladly dropped us off at a favorite restaurant, Shooter's, to cap off our fabulous day. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our cruising experience and cannot say enough positive things about this beautiful ship or its amazing crew! Don't hesitate to book with Captain Jim, you will be as happy as all of us that you did!

  • Wish I could give more than five stars! The entire experience was amazing from the easy, professional communication and planning to the day spent on Captain Jim’s beautiful boat. We were a group of 12 and comfortably lounged our way through a perfect cruising experience. Can’t wait to boat with him again!

  • Excellent day on the water with Captain Jim. Boat was in fantastic condition and Jim customized a route for us that accommodated all our requests. We will certainly go with Captain Jim again. Highly recommended!

  • We rented a Cruisers 540 Sport, which is a very comfortable boat and enjoyed Sunday afternoon for four hours cruising the intracoastal. Captain James and his first mate, Ellen, made the trip very enjoyable. Captain James is very experienced and not only capable, but a very nice person. I very much recommend both this vessel and Captain James for a great boating experience.
