$270 for up to 6 people ($45ea) for 2 hours, can rent up to 8 hours.

"Want to stop and snorkel to discover the beautiful underwater marine life? Take a dip in the oh-so inviting and refreshing water? Or simply lounge aboard your donut under the umbrella’s shade? The choice is up to you… YOU are the captain (yes you can operate this donut on your own."

I'm sure they set the limits, probably within binoc range, i.e., Palm Beach area. We'd need house rules too, no-one gets out the boat unless we are fairly close to shore, I mean we do need to pee :lol: Don't want anyone getting et by a shark in the middle of the ocean :wink:

Prices on Trip Advisor says starting at $399 :?

:lol: :lol: It doesn't look seaworthy and that umbrella will act like a sail. You probably have to stay anchored in the marina.
