I’m honestly speechless. This company was amazing from start to finish. Customer service was so responsive in helping me with all of my questions. They made the whole process seamless. I had a party of 24 people for the paddle boat and the crew was phenomenal! Ryan was our party host who went above and beyond to make sure we had an amazing time. The other crew members did an amazing job as well and the captain was great! Nothing short of a good time and nothing but absolutely amazing things to say about this company and its hard workers. Book this boat. You will NOT regret it! Thank you for making my birthday one for the books!!

Had a great time with friends on the boat! A group of us went for our friend’s birthday and ended up having the whole boat to ourselves. Cal and Chris made our experience so much more fun! Definitely would come back on next time we’re down here.
