    Lexington 524C Pontoon in St Petersburg, Florida in style with Subwing and Yeti-style coolers included!!

    Eric was accommodating and worked with us time wise. The pick up was seamless. Super easy with communication as well as providing suggestions. Such a fun captain. We had a great time out on the water and boating around the keys and gulf. The boat is super spacious and amazing for a group. We will definitely be booking some boat trips with Eric again!

    Lexington 524C Pontoon in St Petersburg, Florida in style with Subwing and Yeti-style coolers included!!

    Our day on Eric‘s boat was everything we hoped for. Eric was so accommodating, including connecting with us the day before the trip to find out what we needed and said our itinerary. He made us feel very comfortable on the boat and by the end of the day it felt very much like we were traveling with a friend. The Gulf and barrier islands did not disappoint. Our trip was perfect!

    20ft Sun Tracker Party Pontoon for rent in Clearwater Beach, Tarpon Springs, and Tampa (10% off Weekdays)

    Rory was amazing with communication and working with us. We originally booked with another person, that the day before our trip fully ignored us making us having to contact my GetMyBoat and get a refund. With Rory, totally opposite. He was extremely accommodating, recommended me some good apps I could use for navigating and even accommodated us on a deck boat that he had available that we actually wanted instead of the pontoon. Meet up time was 4pm, Tito, one of Rory’s crew members called me at 3:35pm confirming I’d be there at 4pm, once I said I was arriving at 3:40, he got happy and said I’d be able to get some extra time on the water. Tito helped us out with a nice sunset spot, some sand bars and where to stop for gas if we wanted to, he even gave us an extra container in case we wanted to get extra and not need to stop. Overall and trip was great, boat was great, and customer service was above and beyond. I’ll definitely rent from them again.

    Great party time celebrating my birthday with my friends. Eric was an excellent Captain. He accommodated our pick up location and brought us to nice island and stop in area so we can watch dolphins. If you need to rent, contact Eric, I highly recommend him.

    September WEEKDAY SPECIAL $350 for 8 Hrs!!! Nov 1st-10th $1600!! Beautiful Deck Boat with ample seating perfect for a family to lounge, fish, swim and tube all day right on Anna Maria Island. Insurance Included

    We noticed that Meghan had multiple 5 star ratings and we decided to reserve a boat with her. We had a terrible experience last year with a dishonest and disreputable boat rental service and are so glad we trusted our instincts this year with Meghan. Meghan’s husband Martin, delivered our boat as promised to the 63rd street boat ramp and was very helpful getting us started. Everything worked fine on the boat and we had no problems other than the windy weather and rough seas. (But that’s not their fault!) It’s nice to know there are honest and reputable business people in the world. We highly recommend Meg and company!
