After you submit the inquiry, the owner will respond with a customized rental offer for you to review. Once you agree on the rental terms, you pay for the rental in full via credit card through GetMyBoat to secure your rental reservation.
GetMyBoat customer reviews for Boat Rentals worldwide.
Captain Gary was very communicative and helpful as well as a great tour guide for pointing out different locations along our trip. He was very laid back and the boat was in tip top shape and clean as can be. Definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a day out on the water or a sunset cruise. It was really enjoyable and I'd book it again in a heart beat!
We had the best time with James and Luis on our boat trip! I had done a bit of research in terms of which options were the best price for the type of boat, and James' boat DEFINITELY was the best! We had a group of 11 and had more than enough room to lay out in the front (which was a main reason why I chose the boat) and there was plenty of room in the back to have food and sit together too. James and Luis were so fun and provided incredible service for our group, I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone and will definitely choose them again again next time I am in Miami!
Thank you so much for this beautiful day! Cruising with Captain Luis on your beautiful vessel was everything we hoped it would be. He brought us to the most beautiful places and was very knowledgeable in the history of the locations. We enjoyed our conversations we had with Captain Luis. All we had to do, was sit back, relax and enjoy this special day. From the time we booked with Captain James, to the time we boarded the vessel everything ran seamlessly. Captain James was very accommodating and pleasant to talk to. Looking forward to our return to Miami so we can book with you again! Cheers, Don, Denise and Brook
This is for the public we recommend Gary for anybody that rents this yacht he showed us a fabulous time and he was very knowledgeable of the surrounding areas and the water Channel that's why we gave him a five-star Plus he was very communicated to us and letting us know about the different boats that were in the in the harbor and this is our first time so we really enjoyed the trip once again thank you and we will recommend our friends
Amazing Boat, even better captain. 11/10 experience. Gary made sure all our needs were met and charted a custom course for our day. The boat was immaculate and the entire experience was a spectacular. Highly recommend.
hands down the best part of our trip to PR! Leo was an amazing captain. We were a group of 9 and every one of us found the experience priceless. The boat was super clean, Leo was an amazing host, and the weather was perfect. Prior to the trip Leo was great with communicating and super flexible. We came looking for a party and he delivered! We’re already planning the next trip
