    All around a great experience. The captain and first mate were very appropriate and helpful. Leading up, it was so nice having a concierge service where Julian’s team was able to buy food and beverages on our behalf and served it on board for us. It was upscale, fun and the boat itself is beautiful.

  • We had an amazing time celebrating our bride to be! The crew was very attentive and accommodating!!

    It was so relaxing ! My kids loved the boat . They have a small cabin where they could hide from the sun. The captain Chris makes it easy and asks about your plans. Allison was very helpful. The owner answered all the questions in a timely manner. I really hope I’ll have the opportunity to rent this boat with Chris as a captain again.

  • Cannot recommend this boat experience enough! It was beautiful, very clean and nice, the perfect size for 10 people, and Faris and Ally were fantastic. The route was beautiful and the water floaties they provided were great. Highly recommend!

    We booked this boat for a bachelorette party and it was amazing! Julian was very easy to communicate with and the crew on board made sure the experience was perfect for our group! They had a great speaker system, floats for us to go in the water, and even helped serve us drinks. They went above and beyond! Can’t recommend this boat enough!

  • Allison and crew were very welcoming. :)

    Julian & crew were phenomenal on our Saturday excursion in Miami! Communication was timely and thorough. Plenty of items were provided (bottled water, utensils, water toys, etc.) to make our trip smooth. We had a blast and would absolutely book this vessel again!

    Came to Miami for a bachelorette trip and went with ShoGun with our yacht for the day & we had best time EVER!!! Faris & Allie were the best to cruise with. So informative, sweet and made things so fun!! We will be back :)

  • We had an AMAZING time. 10 out of 10 would recommend if you are looking to have an awesome time in Miami. Allison and Faris made sure we had a fun and safe experience.

    The boat was perfect for our group! The spacious layout let us all sit together or spread apart. Plenty of room in the shade and in the sun.

    Julian was communicative and made sure we had everything we needed for a great time.

    Captain Chris and mate Giovanni were awesome. They made our group feel so comfortable and welcome. Beyond friendly crew and a beautiful boat. I would gladly recommend renting Shogun for an amazing day out on the water!

    A wonderful experience for a bachelorette party! Our captains, Chris and Gio were so friendly, accommodating, professional and fun! The boat was beautiful, clean and perfect for our group of 5 (but could have fit many more!) Did TONS of research beforehand and ultimately settled on Shogun and I would highly recommend to anyone looking.

    Capt. Chris and Gio were great. Boat was beautiful. Will be back! Thanks Guys!

  • We had a great time on our boat trip! I would highly recommend Julian and his boats. Thank you again for your faultless hospitality.

  • Faris and Allison were amazing the boat was clean and definitely a great vibe. It was definitely worth every penny we're coming back and doing it all over.

    Great trip! The crew were professional and attentive. Julian was super communicative while assisting us with setting up the arrangements. The boat was beautiful and clean.

    Do not hesitate to book the Shogun.

  • I had a very enjoyable experience with Julian and his crew. They were very accommodating and they made the trip very safe as well. I would definitely book a boat trip with him again!

  • Wonderful trip today with Captain Chris and 1st mate Chris. Will definitely do it again.

    The boat was exceptional - even better than expected. Luxurious and lots of room. Service onboard was great too! Would recommend to anyone thinking of booking.

  • These guys know how to create such a memorable surprise birthday cruise experience for my girlfriend and her entire family, of which was their first time boating on such a wonderful vessel... They made them feel safe, welcome and relaxed the entire trip

  • Great day - Thanks !

  • We had the best time with Julian and Chris on the Victory 35! Julian texted me the night before to confirm our trip, which was incredibly helpful and personal. I asked if it was possible to push our time back an hour and he accommodated without any hesitation (I feel like other people would simply say no, or charge you a fee for doing so). They were helpful with helping us to decide what part of Miami to see. The hospitality on the boat couldn't have been better! They offered pillows, sweatshirts (we had a colder day in Miami), and even sandwiches. The coolers were stocked with fresh ice when we arrived. We'll definitely go out on the Victory 35 again the next time we are visiting Miami!

    Awesome cruise around the city at night. The boat has a great sound system and night-time lights. We had a great time. The service was really great. Simply put, Julian and Faris are the best!

  • They were awesome and so attentive!

    My company had an amazing time on SHOGUN with Faris as our captain. What a cool boat! It's a new boat, and is completely spotless. Very modern looking! We were a group of 10 and very comfortably fit in the seating in the back (we could also move up front if we wanted to). Communication prior to the trip was with Julian, and he was super responsive and accommodating to our requests. Much appreciated! Overall it was a really enjoyable cruise!!

  • Julian and Carlos truly made our trip to Miami so memorable. Spending the day on the boat was absolutely amazing and they made our trip so special. The boat was beautiful, comfortable, and perfect for the occasion we booked. Both were so amenable to help with everything from booking, setting up decorations, and making everyone feel safe and comfortable. We cant wait to come back and book our next trip with you guys!

  • Julian and Leo were absolutely wonderful hosts!! They were both extremely considerate and helpful. I would highly recommend this company. I had a big bachelorette party and they were absolutely incredible. THANK YOU FOR HAVING US!! :)

  • We had a fabulous afternoon on the Catamaran! Great communication and reasonable flexibility ahead of out trip to ensure we were prepared. As we toured around different parts of Key Biscayne, Julian provided interesting local knowledge. Plenty of room for 8 of us. Would absolutely reserve this boat again!

  • We had an awesome time on the boat with Julian. They were super accommodating and we had a great time with our bachelor party group! Would definitely recommend to anyone!

  • Our captains were very accommodating and friendly. We had a great time celebrating my bachelor party, but the most disappointing part was that the boat pictured here "victory 35" was what we booked and not what we received. A few days before our scheduled departure I reached out to the boat owner to confirm our reservation and they informed me that there was an electrical issue with the boat and that they would be putting us on a bigger boat that had the same features. When we got there however, the boat was not set up anything like we had chosen and the interior of the boat was extremely small with a bathroom that was only covered by a drape and extremely small. This was very disappointing, but like I mentioned the captain we had was very nice and we had a great time regardless. It was just off putting to receive a completely different boat when we spent so much time choosing the one we did.

  • Had such an amazing time. The boat was clean and very nice and the crew was super helpful with making sure our experience was top notch. Would definitely do this again!

  • Our time on the boat was perfect! It was actually the second time we went through this group. And we hope to go for a third time. :) Great boat, wonderful staff and a great experience overall!

  • Perfect day! Julian was extremely communicative and helpful prior to sailing and throughout the day. The catamaran looks exactly like the pictures; spacious enough for 12 people. If you want to have a party experience, I highly recommend sailing with Julian!

  • We had such a great day on the boat with Julian! We had a group of 8 girls and it was the perfect day and activity for us. Julian took us to the local sand bar where there would a ton of other boats and locals out on the water- it was so much fun. Thank you again, I highly recommend!!

  • We had a GREAT time on Memorial Day!!! The service and the boat were awesome!!! We definitely recommend them!!!

  • Perfect communication prior and we knew exactly what to expect, where to be, etc. Amazing day! I would recommend to everyone and anyone, and we will 100% be renting again. We rented for a total of six hours (group of 12, and there was plenty of room). Spent the first half cruising around, with the remaining time spent at the sandbar. They had floats for us, ice for the 2 large coolers, and helped us grill out. The only bad part was the day had to end!

  • Hands down the best catamaran experience ever! Had such a wonderful time on the boat and exploring around the bay, ending it with a perfect view of the sunset. Could not have asked for a better birthday celebration. The catamaran was perfect and even had some birthday decorations. Everyone was wonderful!

  • We had an absolute blast with Julian and Faris! Julian was so great to work with before hand to make sure we everything we needed to make sure our Bachelorette had the best time. He really went above and beyond. Would absolutely recommend for any bachelorette or special occasion!

  • Had the most amazing time with Carlos and his crew!! They made our trip so much fun! We couldn’t have asked for a better day to celebrate our friends bachelorette. Everything was perfect thanks to them not to mention the amazing boat!! Can’t say enough of how great they were! Can’t wait til next time!

  • We couldn’t have asked for a better time with Carlos! It was a beautiful boat and Carlos was the best host. Thank you to Carlos, Julian, and Captain Lindsay. Our trip was truly the highlight of the weekend

  • It was awesome experiance. Boat was nice and clean. Hospitality provided by Carlos was great.

  • We had an amazing time - Carlos was the best!!

  • We had a great morning , Julian and the team were very helpful; plenty of space and the boat ride was smooth; I will definitely will plan and recommend the boat to anyone; already planning for the next trip;

  • All I can say is OMG!!! We had an AMAZING time. Definitely the highlight of our trip. We rented the boat for my cousins bachelorette party and it was perfect! Carlos was so great! He was friendly and very Helpful. We had a party of 9 and he made each of us feel comfortable. Lets talk about the endless amount of water he had for us. The coolers were filled with ice... Which was great! He Helped us capture every moment from that day.. He was our photographer lol.. He also helped us decorate for the occasion! I would definitely use him again and I recommend everyone to do so as well!

  • Wonderful day with Carlos celebrating my niece’s college graduation. Top notch host. Carlos even grilled our hamburgers for us. Highly recommend if you are looking for a great day on the water

  • Best experience ever!

  • My group of friends and I went out with Carlos this past week for a half-day excursion and it was the highlight of our trip to Miami. I would HIGHLY recommend renting with him due to his professionalism yet laid-back and fun attitude, kindness, and hospitality. When deciding on a departure time, he was very flexible and allowed for her to leave whenever we wanted. He was also very knowledgable about where to take us considering what we wanted to do and see. He went above and beyond what was expected of him and he made our trip.

  • We booked this charter for a bachelorette group of 8 girls and had the most amazing time - we all agreed that it was the highlight of the trip! Carlos is quick to respond and easy to communicate with. He made sure we were well prepared and took great care of our group. He took us on a fun tour of Miami and had awesome, fun water floats and other toys for us to play with when we took a break to swim. The boat has lots of space to lounge, a loud sound system, and is overall a great value in comparison to other boats I looked at. Would book him again in a heart beat! Thanks for the A+ experience!

  • Amazing Experience! We rented this boat with Carlos as Captain for my wife's birthday and it was one of the best experiences we have ever had. The boat is beautiful and they have a kayak, paddleboard and large float. Carlos and Chris could not do enough to take care of us including being very responsive to my messages in advance.

    Highly highly recommend the boat and the crew. Charming, professional and great fun.

  • Had a great trip, Carlos and Paulo were both great. Great boat that has plenty of space and a ton of fun.

  • Exceeded our expectations !! Our group had a blast the entire day - thanks for the experience!! Great guide and clearly eager to make sure we were happy. Strongly recommend Carlos to take care of your day on the water!!

  • Had an amazing time with Carlos. He was very accommodating and took us to all the best party spots while also showing us great views of the city. Highly recommend.

  • Amazing trip! Carlos and Paulo couldn’t do enough for us. Boat is beautiful. Plenty of room and very clean. Best day trip we have ever done out of Miami. We highly recommend and would go with them again.

  • We had a wonderful experience. From the day before Carlos was very helpful and everything was better than expected.

  • We had an amazing time with Carlos over the weekend for my sister's bachelorette party. We were unaware of the boat show going on the day of our ride, and we were over an hour late for the trip due to traffic! Carlos was very understanding and still allowed us all of the time and more out on the water. He took us to some amazing spots and told us all about the history of various areas. We had a really fun time and we would definitely recommend it!

  • I can't say enough great things about renting with Carlos on Victory 35. The weather was absolutely perfect as we sailed to celebrate my bachelorette weekend. We had 12 ladies on board and the space was perfect. Carlos and Paolo were super accommodating and made the entire ride memorable. Highly recommend this boat and experience to anyone celebrating a birthday or bachelorette. They supplied rafts, paddle board, ice, water, cooler, etc. It was the highlight of our weekend!!

  • Our boating trip with Carlos was absolutely fantastic! He had a great personality, was extremely helpful and accommodating, and even let our group stay overtime because he saw that we were having such a great time. Highly recommend this!

  • Amazing boat and excellent day! Carlos is easy to get in touch with and super attentive.

  • I rented the catamaran with my family and had a great time. The boat was clean, with ample space for laying out. Carlos was great to deal with too. Very accommodating to our needs and a tremendous person overall. I would highly recommend Carlos and the catamaran.

  • I can't rate this experience highly enough. Myself and 8 friends went out on the boat with Carlos last weekend, and he was the ideal host. He is very responsive by message and text, and was able to accommodate us when our schedule changed. He is very laid back, and boating was definitely the highlight of our trip to Miami! 10/10 would book again.

  • Carlos was an absolute excellent host. My group of 7 girls had the pleasure of celebrating a bachelorette party with Carlos and his team and it was the best day of our whole trip. The boat was super nice and even with some rain, they made sure we never stopped having fun! We were able to spend the day at the sandbar and see all the beautiful views of Miami.

    Carlos is a great host and we felt super safe with the captain. I highly recommend renting your next boat trip with Carlos! I can't say enough great things!

  • We had an amazing time on Carlos' catamaran in July 2017. I booked with Carlos for a bachelorette party and I am so glad that we did! He responded quickly throughout the entire booking process and was really accommodating while we were on the catamaran. He did everything he could to make sure all of the girls were having fun. There's just something about watching the sunset on the water. I highly recommend! Thanks again for everything Carlos! We will be back soon.

  • Carlos, Pablo, and Austin were nothing short of AMAZING! They accommodated a large group for a surprise birthday party, allowed us to set up early, and even extended our cruise a bit. They were, indeed, the perfect hosts! If I am ever in Miami again, I will ABSOLUTELY call them!

  • Our Bachelor Party had an amazing time with Carlos! We couldn't have asked for a better host and yacht experience! Carlos was super accommodative and on top of everything from planning to making sure we were having an amazing experience. The entire process was painless thanks to Carlos and everyone enjoyed themselves. I would highly recommend Carlos and would love to experience it again in the future.

  • Carlos was an excellent host. My group of 16 enjoyed every second on the boat in the Miami waters. We were able to swim at several stops, watch the sun set and eat/drink without any issues. Throughout the weeks leading up to my reservation, Carlos responded to messages within minutes. I never worried on the boat trip and will reach out to Carlos the next time we are in Miami for a boat trip!

  • Carlos and the Captain were great. They catered to our Bachelorette Party the entire time. I highly recommend going out with them. You will not find a better deal or better people!!!

  • Carlos was an absolutely fantastic host for our bachelorette party. His boat was perfect for an afternoon of sailing and lounging, and he was hospitable, flexible, and incredibly friendly. We would give Carlos 10 stars if we could!

  • Our experience in Carlos' boat was perfect. The boat was clean and he was so kind, always willing to help in everything we need. Despite it was a windy day, he tried to go to places where we could be ok and we can enjoy our trip. We highly recommend Carlos!!!

  • We had a fantastic trip with Carlos! Everything from my initial contact with him, coordination at the marina, and our experience out on the water was world-class. We'll definitely be looking to sail with Carlos again!

  • Spent the day Saturday on the Victory 35 with Carlos for my Bachelorette party - and had the most AMAZING time! Carlos was fantastic and did everything he could to insure we were safe and had the best experience possible. We had 9 girls total and could all hang out on the deck with plenty of room. They provided plenty of bottled water and ice for our cooler. Carlos grilled our food for us.. and took us to this awesome spot with a sandbar. Also had a speaker system to play music for the whole boat. Highly recommend for any group - especially bachelorette parties .

  • Carlos was such a fantastic host and captain! We went out for a bachelorette party and had such an amazing time! He was so wonderful in every way imaginable, and would call him again for my next trip to Miami. Highly recommend!

  • Rented this boat for my bachelorette and had the best time ever!! Carlos and Julian took great care of us and all of my girlfriends had a fabulous day full of sunshine and swimming!! Definitely recommend for anyone looking for a party or just a fun day out around Miami!

  • I had family in town from West Coast, so wanted to get them out in our water which is a nicer to swim in. The cost was extremely reasonable. Carlos and Julian were great. Nothing was rushed, even though we showed up a little late for our departure time. Questions and information requests were promptly responded to making the decision on which boat to rent very easy. The trip they suggested met all of our criteria, allowing my teenage cousins to see some of the amazing houses on the Miami Beach Islands before cruising to the sandbar, so we could all have some fun in the water. Everyone had a great day. Would definitely use them again.

  • What a great day with Julian and Kai (hope I'm spelling his name right)! We had a group of 12 people and rented the boat for a full day. We sailed south to the sand bar and spent most of the day floating in the water, paddle boarding, listening to great music, and enjoying the weather. We made sure to rent the boat late enough to enjoy the sunset on our way back, and it did not disappoint! Would book this boat again in a heartbeat!

  • It was a fantastic catamaran trip. From beginning to end both Carlos and Julian were very professional and accommodating. They were instrumental in our trip being so much fun! We would all love to do another cruise with them -- a totally amazing trip.

  • Amazing trip and wonderful boat, well kept, it was an amazing experience.

  • Our group had an amazing experience this past weekend! Everyone enjoyed themselves and loved that we got to see other parts of Miami via boat. Julian and crew were more than accommodating and the entire rental process a breeze from booking the boat to our departure! The hospitality we experienced was unlike any other. I would recommend anyone who is in the Miami area to spend a day on Victory 35!

  • Catviar catamaran was everything we hoped for and more! Julien and Carlos were wonderful. They went above and beyond to make our bachelorette celebration perfect. We cruised around, hit the sandbar and then they dodged some rainstorms so that we could make the most of our time. They helped us with coolers, set up our music to stream and were just incredibly friendly and warm the entire time. If you’re looking for a day rental in Miami beach look no further, this is the perfect option. I would highly recommend the Catviar to anyone interested in having an amazing day out on the water. Thanks for everything Julien and Carlos!

  • Carlos was a phenomenal host for our Bachelor Party crew. Him and his shipmates were super helpful with our large group and made us feel very comfortable and let us have all the fun we wanted. The day was phenomenal and our entire group wants to recommend Carlos for any future endeavors!

  • Such a great time! Both Carlos and Julian were incredibly helpful and were in contact with us prior to the trip with all the details. They were very flexible and willing to take us to all the best spots. We had a bachelorette with 12 girls and they certainly made it a memorable day.

  • We had a great trip on the cat with Carlos and Julian. Both were very friendly and helpful. They were flexible to our requests and we all had a great time (Party of 8, rented for 5 hours).

  • We had the best time with Julien for my Bachelorette Party!!

  • Had an amazing time with Julian and Carlos on our trip to the sandbar. They provided excellent communication and made the day so special. Looking forward to another trip with them In the future.

  • Best decision ever! The boat is very nice and very spacious, but what makes it better is the crew! Went out with my friends and they definitely made us have a good time. Sailing us through great places and views and taking us to spot so that we were able to swim and relax! Great entertainment! 100% recommended!

  • I cannot stress enough how amazing Carlos and his first mate were. He was able to arrange for my group of 8 friends and I to go out on his boat in less than 24 hours, was incredibly organized while also really laid back and made sure our group had an amazing time. It was exactly what we were looking for! Thank you!

  • We went out with Carlos and crew this past Saturday to celebrate my wives 30th birthday. The boat was in great condition, it was clean and it easily accommodated the 10 of us. Carlos quickly responded to any questions that we had prior to our trip and on the day of he was at our meeting point well before we arrived. We cruised down to a sandbar off of Key Biscayne and spend the day there celebrating. We had an amazing time!! I highly recommend renting from Carlos, as he is friendly and professional. We are looking forward to our next trip on the Victory 35.

    Thanks for everything Carlos!!

  • Carlos and his employee were extremely accommodating in planning the trip and during our excursion. I would highly recommend using his services if you're interested in a hassle-free boating experience with a group of up to 12 people. The boat was very spacious and had all the amenities one could ask for. Would book again!

  • We recently went out on the water with Carlos and his awesome Catamaran for the Columbus Day Weekend Regatta. We had a group of guys and girls and both the boat and Carlos were perfect for a fun day on the water. The boat is in great condition, clean, with all the amenities you could want including a spacious cabin with 2 bathrooms and lots of outside space to lounge in the sun. Carlos was very accommodating and made our experience absolutely awesome, including joining us to explore the Nixon sand bar with a cooler on an inflatable tube in tow! Highly recommend Carlos and his boat if you're looking for an awesome time on the water. Watching the sun set over the Biscayne Bay as we cruised back to the marina was a perfect way to cap off a perfect day.

  • I rented this boat for my bachelorette party. Carlos was so responsive when planning. On the day of, he was great! The boat was awesome and he took us to this amazing sandbar. We had the best time on this boat and with Carlos. Highly recommend.

  • Carlos and his first mate were great! Very accommodating and even picked us up at our hotel. We were a group of 12 ladies for a Bachlorette and only had minor difficulties including weather.. regardless we had a great time!

  • I chartered Carlos' Victory 35 for 8 hours on July 3rd, 2015. We chartered this boat to have a birthday celebration at Nixon Sandbar. Our whole experience was nothing short of a 5 star resort. The catamaran was clean, it had an inside area with A/C, sufficient outlets, multiple fridges and coolers, a toilet, two rooms and a sink. The outside area was sufficient to have all 12 of us together. We were taken to the sandbar and did not have to worry about a thing. He even had a little inflatable raft to take food and beverages while we were on the sandbar!! Carlos was very nice and made sure everything was going well during the whole trip. Whether you are looking to rent a boat to have a relaxing day, a special event or a birthday celebration I highly recommend chartering the Victory 35. Could not have had a better birthday celebration!

  • Fantastic time!! Carlos is a great guy and was very accommodating. He picked us up at the marina close to our hotel and took us on a cruise through South Beach and out to Key Biscayne.

    Boat is clean, well kept, and fit our large group of family & friends well.

  • We went out with Carlos in June 2015 for an awesome day spent at the Nixon sandbar. We were 11, and the boat was the perfect size to accommodate my friends and I. Carlos was helpful, super nice and overall a great captain to have onboard. The catamaran itself has 2 perfect rooms downstairs, 2 clean toilets and is generally in great shape. It also comes with a paddle-board which was good fun!
    I honestly can`t say enough good things about our trip and I`m looking forward to making it back on the boat before the summer is over. Enjoy!

  • We rented the boat for the full day on Sunday. The boat was big enough to accommodate our 12 people crew, completely clean, organized and with all the things required to make our Sunday a perfect fun day. Although Carlos, the owner, offered us whether we wanted to go somewhere else, we decided to go to the Nixon sandbar and spent there the full day. Carlos is a really easy going guy and an amazing host. He was always willing to help us in everything and attentive should we required any help. He made things very easy and simple.

    I will rent this boat again and recommend the experience to everybody. Thanks for everything Carlos.
