    Experience New York Harbor on Sea Ray 280 Sundancer with Captain Michael

    Michael was the captain himself and he helped my friend propose to his girlfriend and now fiancé and really made it a super safe and pleasant experience. The cold weather didn’t interfere as Michael is an expert and knows his boat inside and out. I book with him on regular basis. All his captains and staff are excellent and the experience is breathtaking. Great for tourists to show the attractions of NYC and famous destinations. You will not want to leave the boat, it cannot get boring nor old to enjoy the beautiful water views and scenery. High class and super elegant! Thanks so much Michael. You are the best !

    Couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Johnny has an amazing story, brings his heart to his work and meets his clients where they’re at: he emphasized that we were free to sit up front and completely disengage if we wanted, but was also happy to chop it up with us for much of the ride at our insistence, sharing some history about boating on the bay, and the surrounding areas. Will absolutely be returning.
