Both native of Hot Springs, we love the summertime and the time we spend out on the water. We will show your party the lake, the beautiful homes, and even some wildlife if they are out at the time of your charter. We believe in really experiencing the places you visit, and seeing much more than the usually recommended sites. If we sound like a good match, please get in touch with us. We look forward to helping you make memories!

Had such a great time exploring Lake Hamilton with family visiting from the UK. John was an awesome Captain and we enjoyed every minute of the time we spent on his fabulous boat. Very highly recommended. Will for sure go out on the boat again. John thanks for going over and above to give us such an enjoyable morning boat ride.
