    Title: An Unforgettable Private Boat Excursion with Captain Jay Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ (5/5) I recently had the pleasure of embarking on a private boat excursion with Captain Jay, and I must say, it was an absolutely amazing experience. I decided to gather my son and 5 of his lifelong friends, all of whom are heading off to different colleges, for a day of adventure and relaxation on the water. Little did we know that Captain Jay would turn this outing into an unforgettable memory that we will cherish for years to come. From the moment we stepped aboard, Captain Jay's warm and friendly demeanor put us at ease. He exuded a genuine passion for his craft, and it was evident that he was committed to ensuring our enjoyment throughout the entire journey. His extensive knowledge of the local area and its hidden gems added an extra layer of excitement to the trip. The boat itself was immaculate and well-maintained, providing a comfortable and luxurious setting for our excursion. Captain Jay took the time to explain all the safety protocols and ensured that we felt secure at all times. As we set sail, the breathtaking views of the surrounding coastline and the most amazing sunset 🌅 unfolded before our eyes.

    Our third cruise with Captain Jay, this one a fishing adventure. A fantastic boat, a Captain with intimate knowledge of the local waterways, and a mate who is an expert fisherman who made the catching of fish a science! A perfect day on the ocean with my son and a crew who truly treated us like royalty.

    We had an awesome time with BoatMonkey charters. The crew was a super friendly and made us feel right at home. The boat was comfortable while still providing a great fishing experience. Capt. Jay and Mike were able to put us on fish first thing in the morning and get us back to the sandbar for a relaxing afternoon. I highly recommend to any group looking for a laid back day on the water.

    5 stars all the way! They were able to arrange a charter on relative short notice when no other captains & companies would even respond. They were 100% professional (and personable), the boat was clean and met all our needs.

    The half day spent on the water with Jay was the highlight of our time in Jensen Beach. Aside from being a very professional, knowledgeable and clearly capable captain Jay also did an awesome job engaging and interacting with the whole family throughout the experience. Our kids loved the time on the boat, and Jay found the perfect spot to let them swim on the sand bar. From the parents perspective, the boat was very safe, comfortable, and perfectly maintained. Jay’s obvious competence and easygoing nature allowed us to completely relax and enjoy.

  • All I can say is that The BoatMonkey is the best charter service you will ever use! Our party of 9 chartered the beautiful 44’ Monkey Time on a day trip from Stuart to Jupiter. Our fearless leader, Captain Jay, was the perfect pilot, regaling us with stories of the places we passed and joining in our birthday celebration whenever possible. The views were amazing, the Jupiter lunch memorable and the dancing was non-stop. You need to make sure you take advantage of the Monkey Time’s amazing sound system! All in all, this was as good as a charter gets and Captain Jay, who was one of the family by the end of the trip, is the best! Will absolutely be booking future trips with The BoatMonkey!
