  • Had a great time aboard Sea Vibes. Great boat and John was super easy to plan with- he met us at the gate and we were on board and off right away! Also super accommodating and took us on a nice ride through museum drive and then up to the playpen. Highly recommend- great price for a great boat! Could not have been better.


  • We had a great time on the lake with John! The boat was great! John knows his way around the lake and anchored in a great place for us to swim and have fun! It was very easy to communicate !


  • John was flexible, accommodating, professional, and just generally awesome. We used his boat for a "dadchelor" party for a friend of ours having his first kid. We went out during the air show. The weather was iffy and John stayed in constant contact to make sure we felt comfortable going out. The boat was great, too.
    Fantastic experience overall.


  • We had a great time. John is easy communicate with. His boat is beautiful and comfortable.


  • We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Coordinating and communicating with John was super easy. John’s boat is immaculate and he made every effort to make sure we were comfortable, safe, and enjoying ourselves. The large water pad and inflatable float he set up were absolutely perfect for lounging in the water. My only wish is that we could have spent more time out on the lake. Thank you, John!


  • John was awesome! Professional, efficient and friendly. It was a great day on Lake Michigan. Would book again in a heart beat!


  • John and Allie were great hosts that were super responsive - made planning an absolute cinch. The boat was beautiful and spotless. John and Allie were happy putting together a route that included both the city tour and the Play Pen. Our group had a blast and would absolutely recommend them.


  • Good communication great trip!


  • John was an excellent captain, attentive but not intrusive and his boat is immaculate!! Will definitely rent again.


  • We had such a wonderful day out on John’s boat. The boat was spotless and the perfect size for the 6 of us that went out to the Playpen. We had so much fun and can’t wait to go out again. Thank you, John!


  • Very positive experience. John was easy going and very professional. Had a great time on his boat and its quite apparent he maintains everything at a high level. Thanks John. Easily fit a group of 6 people comfortably.


  • John and Allison were great. Very accommodating and made the whole experience a memorable one. We will book with you again if/when we return.


  • My family and I had the best time with Captain John and Ali. Their boat was beautiful and they were so hospitable, ensuring we had a great time in the water. We highly recommend them for any adventure you are looking for out on the lake.
