Amanda Jane has become family tradition

  • 4 of 5

We stayed on Amanda Jane last year for the first time and enjoyed it so much we returned this year. I am in town yearly for a work related meeting that we have turned into a mini vacation. We have decided to make Amanda Jane part of our family tradition for a mini vacation every year. Ken, the boat's captain is the hostess with the mostest! Thank you Ken for sharing Amanda Jane with our family!

Super fantastic

My husband and I loved staying on the Amanda Jane. We saw Daphnis and manatee every day. Lots of great people watching, too. Ken, the owner, is great, too. He responded quickly to my questions. It was a lot of fun!

Enjoyed every minute of the stay. Shem Creek is a great location. The sunsets and sunrise were awesome. Close to restaurants we could hop right off the boat and eat lunch or dinner. I would recommend renting kayaks or paddle boards right there in Shem Creek. We would absolutely do it again

Glad we tried staying on a boat. Don't know if I feel the need to do it again (but the bad weather (9 inches of rain in two days) influences my opinion

Owner's Response: Judy I agree with you about the rain, unfortunately I have no control over the weather. If you want to come stay again I will discount the rate and hopefully the weather is better. Thanks for staying

The boat is docked in a great location. You can view dolphins, paddle kayaking, boats, plus walking people on boardwalk. Restaurant & Bars on both sides of creek. Boat was bigger on the inside then expected- this was a first time experience on a boat instead of a motel room. Nice shower & sitting area.Great for family of 4 or less. We had 2 adults & 2 children, one slept on couch. We were on board for 2 nights, the only drawbacks that we did not anticipate was the noise of flushing the toilet during the bedtime hours & the fishing charter boat in front of our boat that left very early in the mornings ( 4:30 or 5 AM)- engines were noisy . Other than these waking sounds , it was a great experience.
