Staying on James 28’ boat was a unique and fun experience. Make sure you go during good weather as the boat does not have AC, but it wasn’t much of a problem for us when we stayed because of the cool climate. Also note that the boat is somewhat small, my boyfriend who was 6’3 had…

Life on the water can be a little intense especially in inclimate weather. I try my best to have the guests understand and perhaps being a seasoned mariner can sometimes come accross as rude to the novice boater but all in good spirit and all to keep my guests safe and having fun on the water regardless the weather. The life of a mariner can seem intense to some but again I like to keep my guests happy offer them solutions and options on the water. It is in fact the barefoot academy and outdoor healthy activities are encouraged. But by all means the guests are the priority and we do our best to give them a unique water vacation. Thank you.

this place has no electricity we were put in a situation that in the dark of midnight the boat had no electricity we were not able to ENTER in the boat, then he charged for restocking fee, for what? when we did not enter to the boat. Capitain James Derby's refused to refund the …

There is electricity. It is 12 bolt electricity with several led lights thT light up blue and red. There are led reading lights for the night. The problem in this case was a late last minute booking and my new tender driver did not follow instructions of tidying up the cockpit and putting on the courtesy lights. Instead of calling me they struggled and had very unrealistic expectations of living on a yacht st the ritz Carlton 5 star hotel with air conditioning for the price of my listing. It is a kayaking and SUP vacation luxury camping on the water. I did see some of the issues so offered a make up night free kayak tours etc. to no avail. Do not book this boat if you expect valet service and 5 star acomodations at budget prices. We see cormorants and dolphins on a daily basis. I truly believe if margarita and her boyfriend had slept the night and taken me up on free kayaks in the morning they would have totally enjoyed themselves. If you expect to have a ritz Carlton experience for a budget kayaking sleep on the water vacation your bound to be disappointed. If you take off your shoes and enjoy the water you’ll love it.

Captain James was very accommodating. He was also punctual and friendly. He does not lie when he says you are in for an adventure. Also, he can not control the weather. The time we spent on his boat was during a storm. Our belongings got drenched on the tender ride from shor…

Waterproof on a boat is an oximoron. The hatches had some caulking issues that one never sees in the sunny days. We are constantly fixing caulking leaks swan song is a fairly dry boat and I keep caulking until I get it perfect. The problem on Stephanie’s vacation was the rain was very strong and had already lasted 10 days before her arrival. Everything on all three of our boats was tested by the rains. Even some of our neighbors with newer boats had leaks. Again, the rain forecast for Miami Beach had been 80 and 90% rain for literally 3 weeks. Stephanie forgot to mention the the 40$ kayak that was given to her and her husband for free to make up for some severe weather conditions.

Camping on a boat in South Beach! The boat has the basics, you bring the extras. Great quiet location. Weather was good so the water was calm. Definitely go kayaking around the bay! Capt James is experienced and knowledgeable. He exceeded my expectations as a host. Thanks again, …

The location is perfect, you're pretty much in between downtown and Miami beach, you've got plenty of restaurants and shopping in the area. the water is really refreshing to swim and kayak in, and the main thing was James was there when we needed him! Hope you be back soon.

Sleeping in the boat a really cool experience, waking up in the sea with amazing sun, take a kayak tour... Joyful! Be really flexible as the boat is 50m from the port, you'll be dependant on someone driving you with a boat (not late night for example). Captain James is a nice guy…

Louis was given a kayak for free for his morning workout to make up for the fact we had some colder choppy weather. He had ice and water waiting for him and a clean nice bed with cozy blanket to sleep. I am not a new host it is a kayaking adventure vacation very clear in the discription. I also have a broken ankle making everyday chores difficult but I accommodated him with pleasure. Do not book the boats if you are expecting five star hotel amenities and service. It is a swimming kayaking fun vacation for those who escape the snow for some fun in the sun. Thank you.
