Great experience! Lisa and Roy were both very nice and helpful. They made the boat rental process easy. Their boat was very clean and ran well. The highlight of our boat rental was seeing a pod of dolphins just before returning to dock!

Wonderful day on the water! Lisa was amazing. Couldn’t recommend it more!!! She gave us directions so we had no issue finding the best places to find hermit crabs, shells and places to dock and lay out.

Roy is very knowledgeable and fun to be around. He has lived on the island all his life and knows the "secret " spots. He was very kind and patient with novices like us, and we will be going back again! Thanks Roy, loved it!
