  • 5 star review  Rented the Mako and man what a great experience. We are new to the boating life and this was our first official trail alone. We DID IT and it was great. The owner was on time and boat was ready... He gave us a great briefing and made us feel at ease. Thank you and we look forward to renting again.

    5 star review  What a great experience! My friend and I rented the Mako yesterday. When we got there, her truck completely stopped. Rick took us to the dock so we could go and still enjoy our day. While we were out on the water, Rick even tried to get her truck running for us. After our fun filled day at sea, we got back and her truck still wasn’t running. Rick went out of his way and took us all the way home which was almost an hour away. He was very kind and helpful. Any other place would’ve left us stranded with no way home. I will definitely be telling everyone I know about this place and experience. I can’t say enough great things about them. And on top of all this, their rates beat any other place around. The boats are super clean and run great. We went out to celebrate my bday and it was amazing! Thank you Rick!!!!!

    5 star review  We rented a boat from Rick the 2nd week in April and loved it! He was very easy going and the boat was immaculate. Will definitely rent from him every year.

    5 star review  Rented the Tahoe for the day. Cruised around Tampa Bay for a while then spent the afternoon at Egmont Key. The boat is in great shape and ran perfectly! Excellent fuel consumption - I was really surprised. Spacious comfortable boat! Rick was very helpful showing us the amenities. We'll definitely be renting it again!
