Donn is one of the best hosts you will experience. I made the mistake of only renting Raven's Dance for a day. The food was delicious, the views were amazing. The boat is impeccable. We would have had just as much fun had the boat never moved. Donn was so accommodating, when I was unsure about dates or even how to plan a boating trip. I messaged him so many times and he was always so responsive. He was patient and willing to work with me to find a plan that worked for me. If you book with Donn you will get the star treatment!
