GetMyBoat customer reviews for boat rentals in Fort Myers Beach.
We had a "Most excellent time". There is a pirate ship docked in Estero bay, it was pleasant. we saw a few dolphins, lots of flying birds, albatross and such. bring plenty of water and hats and sunglasses!! It gets bright out on the water. lf you return late in the day, everyone is traveling through the "miserable mile" and it is very slow going. The boat was comfortable and we all had a very nice day. Nadia was extremely helpful in suggesting where to go where to avoid, bent over backwards to help us. We would definately rent again
Cannot recommend Nadia and this boat enough. Everything was perfect. We booked at short notice after a previous booking cancelled on us twice. It was such a relief to have Nadia communicate so quickly and efficiently and still get the best price around. The boat was ideal for our large group of 10 including children with all the safety gear we needed. With Nadia’s quick orientation session it was easy to operate the boat in safety even with our relatively little boating experience. She gave us great recommendations on the best beaches to stop at and an amazing little deserted island to treat as our own. We even saw a couple of dolphins along the way. To top it all Nadia went well above and beyond to return some bags we forgot after a long relaxing day on the waves. Overall this was the highlight of our holiday and we will all remember this day for a very long time.
Booking was easy but we had to unexpectedly change our booking twice because some repairs were needed due to the previous day's renters. Nadia was great in communicating the changes with me and making sure we were able to have a boat on a day that worked for us. Overall it was a great experience.
Great experience near Cape Coral beach. Nadia is great and helpful for non local renters. Would definitely recommend.
Thank you for the patience and help! We were aiming for a last minute booking but ended up switching to a later date and she was super accommodating both ways. Pleasure to work with. We had a blast! Thank you!!
We had a blast! The Pontoon was in great condition and ran perfect. Nadia showed us where to go and was very helpful. I would rent again for sure
