    It was a good day to be on the water.. did exploring around Cumberland Island. Pulled the boat up and threw out the anchor and swam. Saw dolphins, turtles, wild horses along the shore. Enjoyed the family that came along. Great experience for all!!

    Listen, the only reason why this is a 5 star review is due to the fact that is the max rating I can give on the website. This was a turned up to 11 sort of rental. First let me say the boat crew at the marine were prepared, knowledgeable, but most of all friendly and patient. Secondly, the boat was amazing! Fit the entire family easy to drive, easy to tow tubes with, no problems, well maintained, exuberantly clean (by far the cleanest boat I've been on or I've owned... unfortunately sometimes the truth hurts lol). I was also happy to not worry about hurting sea life as this is a jet drive and has no actual blade to hurt them or anyone getting in or out of the boat. Last but certainly not least, Stephen. Let me say this man's communication was top notch before with questions, during, and even afterwards. Even with a busy schedule he still made it feel like the service was the only thing he was doing for the day. I know I privately thanked you but let me publicly thank you from myself and my entire family everyone enjoyed the boat (even our grumpiest participant cheered up after take off.) 11 out of 10 would definitely rent and use Stephen and his marina again.

    30' Kurt Hughes Cruising Catamaran rental in Fernandina Beach, Florida

    We loved this experience! Boat and Captain Terry were early and waiting on us when we got to the dock! The catamaran boat was a lot of fun, our first time on one and we loved laying out in the sun! Captain Terry gave lots of information about the area. Highly recommended!!
