“I've been boating since 1994, at Columbia Island Marina since then. I'm very social and enjoy meeting new people in this wonderful hobby of ours.”
Aboard since 2015
From Reston, VA
We celebrated my husband's 40th birthday on Ben's boat, and couldn't have had a better experience. Not only was Ben an excellent captain and guide, but we all enjoyed his company too. His boat is attractive and clean, and had everything we needed to make for an wonderful celebration. Many of our guests had never been out on the river despite living in DC for years, and they were excited to see the monuments from the water, check out the fancy yachts at Georgetown's harbor, and get a chance to take a dip in the river near the scenic Three Sisters islands.
The whole experience from my initial contact with Ben to the party itself was smooth and easy. My husband and our guests were very impressed, and very eager to book another outing soon!
I had the pleasure of celebrating my wife's 31 birthday over memorial day weekend and rented Captain Ben and his nice clean boat as the pinnacle of the celebration. My guest and I were extremely pleased with the service provided by Captain Ben. His boat is super for a great outing. Captain Ben is so customer focused and makes it his main priority to ensure that your experience is high level. We will definitely do it again with Captain Ben....

Ken has an awesome boat in Arlington that made for a great day on the river. It has an excellent sound system, great navigation and is easy to operate. Ken's communication was excellent, and he was very accommodating. I definitely recommend Ben and his boat!
I had a great experience renting Ben's Chaparral. Ben couldn't have been better to work with and the boat is a beautiful boat. The boat was extremely well maintained, performed great, and had every amenity you can think of. Ben was extremely helpful throughout the entire process -- from the booking through the return. The location of the boat is also perfect. It turned out to be a really nice day for cruising around up and down the Potomac -- to Georgetown, over to yards park, and some cruising along the way. I can't say enough about how great Ben was to work with or how nice the boat was. I'm looking forward to taking it out again.
Ben was a great host and the boat was perfect. Everything worked without issue, the boat was very clean and we had a great time. The weather could not have been better too! Definitely would recommend renting Ben's boat to others and look forward to booking again.
Ben was extremely helpful throughout the processing of renting his boat - from responding to our original inquiry, to coordinating the logistics, to meeting us on our day of departure...he made it very simple and we really enjoyed using his beautiful boat
