    Olaf took us to all of the hot spots - the sandbar near the lighthouse, anchor and swim in the ocean and a rope swing off the intercostal! What a fun day cruise! Made our girl’s trip for my daughter’s 15th birthday especially memorable. Thanks Olaf!

    We had an amazing experience celebrating mother's day on the water! Joseph and Mary were already had the boat ready at the dock and very helpful to get us going. They also recommended restaurants in the area. We navigated along the Intercoastal and anchored at the Boca sandbar. The weather made us postpone the snorkeling part of our plan but no regrets at all... That's an excellent excuse for another trip.

    2021 21' Yamaha 212 Jet Boat - Perfect Boat For A Perfect Boat Day - Captain Optional

    My wife and I had a great day on Jay’s boat. He had the boat ready to go on time and was waiting for us at the dock when we returned. The Yamaha Jet boat is very comfortable and a lot of fun to drive. Jeff is a super nice guy and a pleasure to deal with. Can’t wait to do it again.

    60 Foot Luxury yacht with Captain & Crew

    My only hesitation with telling you all how great this was, is my concern that you will book this boat, making it harder for me and my friends to do this again. We loved every bit of this. The boat is fantastic, but the crew and attitude was even better. We all had a wonderful evening and look forward to doing it again.

    28’ Pro Cat for rent with Captain

    We had such a wonderful time on the water. We wanted to do a little bit of everything and Olaf did not disappoint! He knew exactly where to take us so that we started pulling in fish as soon as our lines hit the water ! Snorkeling was wonderful and we saw so many fish and found some cool sea shells. Olaf even put a mat off the boat so the kids who were a bit unsure could lay on it and just put their faces in the water to see the fish! He was so great that we literally booked again for tomorrow morning! 100% recommend booking with him!
