We have been using Captain Bob’s for seven years now! They remember us each year we return. The boats are the best around always in good shape and super clean. We will be returning again and can’t wait.

I will start by saying we got there at 8:30am and got online without an issue. A woman that came in after us simply asked the girl at the front desk (which we found out to be later the owners daughter), to use the Wi-Fi...More

Beautiful day on Lake George, on a practically brand new, 13 person pontoon. Very professional, very clean and a great experience. I would recommend them to anyone.

Other than the owner's behavior, this place is ok! The owner is extremely rude and basically do not know anything about customer service. He was very close to ruin the day for us. Rent from another location if you can.

Captain Bob is a mean, nasty old man. He doesn't have enough help down at the dock and they don't explain all aspects of the boat properly. Although the boats are nice, dealing with Captain Bob and his rude behavior ruins the entire experience. There...More

This guy is a straight up scam artist. There was slight damage to the canopy frame of the boat that was there from the outset and you would have never noticed until you tried to take it down. Of course Captain Bob rushed us out...More
