    My friends and I had such an amazing time on the boat! Love that it's BYO and there is plenty of space for a group of 12. It felt really special to have the boat to ourselves and I would highly recommend this experience! Definitely worth the money.

    I booked with Johnny months ago to celebrate my Saturday summer birthday. Johnny was so laid back and welcoming. The communication was prompt, the boat was well maintained and we had full access to the boat to party as we wanted to! Until next time... thank you!
