    Fernando and his team are the best! We took one of his yachts out for my 30th birthday and had the most amazing time. He was so accommodating and even picked up drinks for the boat for us so we wouldn't have to lug them from South Beach. 10/10!!

    46' Sunseeker Camargue In Miami, Florida!

    I had a great experience throughout. Easy communication I booked this boat less than four hours before we left the dock! The captain was a true joy and knew some of the more scenic routes to take us around. Will definitely book again when I’m in Miami!

    Miami Bay Cruiser On a 52' Altamar Motor Yacht

    Captain Fernando and Louis were very attentive and great communicators. Highly Recommended. The yacht was clean and offers plenty of space to relax, party or just see the sights. We opted to bring our own drinks and finger foods and Louis took it from there... making sure we had what we needed. They also have a catering service if you'd rather go that route.
