2nd time in a row they were a no call, no show. We called them 15 minutes after pick up time. Two weeks ago they... forgot us, so they arrive an hour late. The boat broke down on the way home. We floated in the NE river for over an hour. They didn’t do ANYTHING to compensate us. We thought “Everyone had a bad night”. Tried them again tonight. No show. No call. We call. They say “we’re running late”. 10 minutes later, I get the call “ We’re not coming. Great. Thanks. Never again.read more

I reserved the water taxi to host a surprise birthday for my friends 30th. Because it was a surprise, I had a TON of... questions regarding what I could or could not do. Captain Lynda answered every single one of my questions immediately, and was so very accommodating. She and the bartender on board were beyond friendly. We had a beautiful night on the water with drinks and delicious apps. Would recommend to anyone looking for something fun on the water!read more
