    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!

    Our recent sunset cruise with Captain Jay was the ideal way to experience the Stuart waterways for the first time. The nostalgic charm and comfort of the Magnum Opus made for a relaxing and entertaining evening on the water. Looking forward to another cruise with Captain Jay when family comes to town.

    There are hundreds of boats and charters on the Treasure Coast, but none as unique and enjoyable as a trip on the Magnum Opus. An awesome boat and great crew, I look forward to sharing this experience with more friends and family.
