NEW MEMBER STORY:
He joined on Sunday, trained on Monday, took has family out at Julington Creek on Tuesday and then he went out on a boat in Palm Beach on Thursday.
Thank you for arranging the boat for us at Palm Beach on Thursday. My son and I took the boat a short distance to Peanut Island and snorkeled at the man-made reefs. We saw all kinds of fish and he kept saying "this is awesome... Dad look at this... look at this." We also met a nice couple for Ponte Vedra who belong to our club and were using a boat in Palm Beach as well on Thursday. I already appreciate how nice the boats are in Jax.
When I first joined, I kept thinking, I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop, it never does. When we moved to Jacksonville from Tampa, we joined for a worry-free boating experience. Nobody told us about the friends we'd meet or the fun we'd have both on and off the water.
Boating to the Jaguars game was one of the neatest experiences we've had so far in Jax. Freedom Boat Club is a great club and these forays are a fun event. Had a great experience at the Destin club today. You guys - and this program - ROCKS!
I have been thrilled with our membership. We have had a blast tubing in the St John' last summer and look forward to this summer.
It's been a great experience for our family. Truly all of the great things about boating but none of the hassles. FBC has lived up to every end of the agreement. We took out a nice family boat in Ft. Myers franchise this past week and it was an equally great experience. It only cost gas and a gratuity!
