    Crownline Powerboat & water toy rental! Lake Lanier/Oconee/Allatoona!

    David was awesome! He was super friendly and accommodating. We had a party of 9 and it was spacious, comfortable and very relaxing. David contacted me a few times to confirm the reservation, group size and offered several water activities for us to choose from. We had so much fun we forgot to go tubing. This was a perfect boating experience and I will definitely use David for future rentals he made the boating experience the highlight of my birthday trip.

    Captain Dave is amazing, we all enjoyed every minute, from touring Lake Lanier, wiping out on the tube, and finally just relaxing in the sun. A priceless experience and building family memories!

    David is an awesome person! We had a great time/experience. He was patient and communicated clearly, no hidden gimmicks. Additionally, we didn’t know that the rental came with an activity such as tubing (A+). We all had a great time. Thanks David, we are definitely coming back to use your services again!
