Mike was very accommodating and flexible with our family and we had a marvelous day out on the Bay. Arnold, MD is close to DC metropolitan area and has a spectacular crab house called the Point to finish the day off with. I'd highly recommend the boat and working with Mike.
Mike was excellent to work with and I would definitely rent from him again. He gave us great tips on where to boat to, including beaches, coving out, and restaurants. He was also very thorough on explaining the river and bay, so we didn't have any issues navigating. Would highly recommend renting from Mike.
Mike was extremely accommodating for our trip and took the time to acclimate us to his boat and the channels near his dock. Can't recommend him enough for your Magothy needs. Our entire group had an epic day and Mike was a big part of the experience!
We really enjoyed our time on Mike's Regal Boats 2000 (2004 model). The boat is in very good shape and appears to be well maintained for it's age. Mike was kind enough to show us out of the cove and familiarize us with his vessel. He was very efficient in the process of reviewing the boat bound agreement and getting us on the water. He provided some nice charts and some valuable thoughts on anchorages and fishing areas. The Magothy was a nice tidal river to boat on. There was marginal boat traffic for a Sunday and the nettle population was low enough that we could swim and tube with out anyone being stung. We would strongly consider renting with Mike again.
This is the second time I have rented from Mike and it was superb. He is responsive to email and has the boat ready to go when you arrive. The boat is in good shape and runs very well. The boat had no problem pulling a tube with 2 riders with 6 passengers. He has some laminated information on the area and good recommendations about where to go. The marina for gas is only 10 minutes from his dock which makes end of day fueling easy. Definitely a good deal for a day on the Magothy river.
We had a great time on the Magothy River with Mike’s boat. It was the second time we rented from Mike and had a fantastic experience both times. We’ll be back in the late summer. Mike is very friendly, considerate and has a great knowledge of the area, river and channel. He was also very responsive in his communication. His location on the Magothy is also a plus. He is close to the Point Crab House which was just written up in the Washingtonian as a great place for Crabs. We agree. You are in store for a great day when you book Mike’s boat.
We had a great experience renting from Mike. The was my second time renting from him, and it went great. Mike is very friendly, and makes you feel comfortable renting his boat. We appreciated the laminated pages with information about what to do in the area. The boat ran great, was clean, and performed nicely. All in all a great experience and I look forward to renting from Mike again, and would highly recommend him.
Mike was fantastic. We rented his boat to take our two kids tubing. His boat was perfect for tubing and skiing. Mike was also so flexible and responsive. We were significantly late and he was very flexible. Great experience! Beautiful location.
This was our first time using Boatbound and had a great experience. Mike was super friendly, took the time to show us around his boat and the area before we got started. We had a lot of fun exploring the area and the USNA from a different vantage point. If your looking for a great way to show friends and family around the area, this is a unique way to do it! I would highly recommend Mike to anyone. He has a larger boat for more people or the smaller one that we rented which was perfect for our group. The price was spot on to what I would expect to pay, which made our day perfect.
Great day on the bay for our family of four! Mike was very accommodating (even though we were running a bit late), and keeps his boats clean and in very good condition. Our family rented the 20 foot Regal, which handled great on the choppy Bay water. The boat is clean and in great running condition, no worries while boating at all. We will definitely rent from Mike again!
Once again, another excellent experience through Boatbound. Right from the initial communication with Mike through enjoying a fabulous time on the bay. Mike's Regal was perfect for the four of us. Boat was clean, ran very well and easy to operate. I would definitely recommend this to friends and family. I am sure it will not be the last time... I would like to thank Mike for sharing his boat with the Boatbound community.
Mike was easy to contact and very responsive. The boat was everything he promised and in excellent mechanical shape. It ran like a champ and had no problem with 6 passengers and towing a 2 person tube. I would definitely rent from him again. It was a great experience!
We had a great time on Mike's Regal. The boat was exactly what we were looking for. Lots of deck room and a great swim platform and retracting ladder. It easily fits four adults or two adults and 3-4 kids. We spent the day tubing and swimming and all went fantastically well. Mike was a great host and gave us a thorough introduction to the boat and the channel into his creek. I highly recommend Mike and the Regal for anyone looking for a fun day on the river.
This was a great experience! Mike was very accommodating and was quick to reply to any questions I had prior to the day of the reservation. He took the time to go over the in's and out's of the boat as well as taking us out to show us how to navigate the channel and pointed out some good spots to visit/drop anchor if we would like. Would absolutely rent from him again and would recommend you do the same!
Great rental. Our plan was to go out on the bay, but winds and currents prevented that. We stayed in the Magothy River and had a blast. Mike will help show you all you need. We had a problem on the water and Mike was available and very helpful. I would definitely recommend Mike and his boats. We will be using him again in the near future.
Mike was super responsive when we couldn't get other options together for a short-notice fishing trip with family & friends. His 20" Regal was a perfect size for our day on the water and generally competitively priced with other options. The condition of the boat was very clean with very few maintenance issues -- it is clear Mike cares for his boats. Mike went above and beyond, accommodating an early departure and even a friend who needed to use his washroom after having too much coffee! A day of scouting 3-4 locations with striper trolling (about 6 and a half engine hours) ran about $70 in fuel and Mike kindly provided a re-fuel option so we could spend more time on the water. We did encounter a minor propulsion "bug" throttling up to WOT but it sounded like a new issue to Mike and that he'd look into.
I would most certainly consider renting from Mike again and highly recommend others to hit him up for a caring, responsible provider.
Wow, i just had a wonderful Boatbound experience with Mike and his Regal. His Regal 20 is in top notch shape and very easy to operate, it was the perfect sized boat for my family (wife, sister and parents) for a day out on the Bay. Mike walked me through everything I needed to know about the boat and even shared some local tips about anchorages and restaurants on the Magothy River. He was very flexible with the booking pickup and drop off times so we could have a relaxing full day on the water. I hope to rent from Mike again later this season and would absolutely recommend that you rent Mike's Regal through Boatbound too.
Mike is a good guy to rent from. Very relaxed and willing to trust you. The 20 ft Regal is a nice little boat and worth the rental price - rides pretty well, even with the nasty Bay chop. The bimini top helps a lot to keep you out of the sun, if you are lucky enough to get some! The boat is a bit slow to get up on plane, but once there - at around 3200 RPMs - it rides pretty nicely. Only negative is that the boat does not have an onboard head - that just means you need to plan your stops well, or do some swimming as required. There is a marina nearby to gas up before you return, so the gas was not an issue. I would certainly rent from Mike again.
My family and I had a wonderful time on Mike's Regal. The weather was iffy so we waited right up to the last minute- Mike was understanidng and very accommodating. There were 5 adults on board and we had plenty of room. We had fun out on the Bay and in the river and coves , Mike was kind enough to take us out of his cove into the river so we knew how to navigate our way around. He suggested points of interest and restaurants. He also provided maps which were very useful. I would highly recommend Mike's Regal for a fun day on the Bay!
The boat was great. Just the right size for the two of us (could've fit more comfortably). The location is perfect as you are about 1 hour from Annapolis and the Magothy river has a couple of great rafting spots and restaurants. Mike is great guy really easy going to work with .
We had a great experience with Mike. He was very friendly, and we felt very welcome while renting his boat. Mike showed us all the features of the boat and gave us tips on where to go. The boat was in great shape and ran well. We had a great time and won't hesitate to rent from Mike again.
Had an outstanding first experience with Boatbound and that was due from renting with Mike. Mike made sure our needs were met and provided everything we needed to ensure we enjoyed our time on his boat. His Regal was very comfortable and performed exceptionally well. I would not hestitate to rent from Mike again.
Mike took great care of us and his Regal boat ran like a dream. His pier is in a good central location on the Magothy River and our family had a blast cruising and exploring. It is clear that Mike takes good care of his boats, and everything on the boat worked perfectly. Mike was extremely flexible with pickup/dropoff times and went out of his way to help us with refueling. I strongly recommend Mike if you are looking for a nice day of cruising on the Magothy.
My crew and I had a great time on Mike's boat. The Regal was clean and ready to go with a full tank of fuel. He familiarized us with the boat and safety equipment. Helped us to finalize our itinerary with his local knowledge of the area. The day was a 10 for us on a scale of 10.
