    We did a 3 day boat rental. Joe dropped off the boat and picked it up from our canal. The boat was in excellent condition. The Garmin navigation system made it easy to maneuver the SW Florida waterways. Joe also had great communication throughout our whole experience. I highly recommend Joe and his team for your next boating experience.

    George and Alex’s boat was in great condition and my family had a great time cruising all of the little island beaches. The boat had a really nice gps that was a lifesaver while navigating through the channels. I highly recommend renting from them, no hassle, great prices.

    Very accommodating and answered all my questions which I really appreciated. We got a little lost on the way back and arrived after our drop off time but I texted them to advise of our error. He was very understanding and I would recommend renting from him.
