    What Our Clients Are Saying


    Process was very smooth. From getting the contract signed to the time we docked when things wrapped up. Sales process was a zero pressure experience. I was presented the pricing and dates that were available. The rest was in my court. In comparing the prices with other companies, I realized Anita Dee was the best choice. Post-sale, I would get a quick response to my emails. All my questions were answered going into the day of the event. Day of the event, my guests experienced first class service from a wonderful crew of five. My guests and I got everything and then some from the team at Anita Dee. I would definitely recommend them for your outing. I have no doubt I'll continue to do business with them.
