Rental Requirements

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you offer damage insurance on the boats?

Yes we do. At the time of rental, you will be given the option of taking our damage waiver. Should something happen to the boat while you are out (and this includes anything from you hitting the bottom/a log in the water/a lighthouse to a meteor hitting and totaling the vessel) this waiver will limit your responsibility to $750.

If you don’t have it, you are responsible for the cost of the repairs and/or lost rental time. In most cases, the waiver is $25 per day, except for boats 26′ and up when it is $30 per day.

What are your half-day hours?

Half days are four and a half hours and are available from 8am until 12:30pm OR from 12:30pm until 5pm.

What do I need to rent a boat?

If you do not have or have very limited ocean boating experience, we simply require that you take a one hour boating lesson with us for $50. You and anyone in your party who’d like to join in will be taken out with one of our very knowledgeable employees and shown hands-on all the basics you’ll need to know. Learning like this is definitely more interesting than sitting in front of a computer and reading! You’ll be driving the boat by the end, and you’ll know how to keep yourselves and the boat safe while enjoying the waters of the Keys.

What are your locations and do you deliver?

We are located in Key Largo on the ocean side at mile marker 100, our booth is on the parking lot of the Marriot Courtyard hotel, on the same canal as the Holiday Inn and Coconuts.

We do deliver boats for rentals of 3 days or more (please refer to our Location sections for details and black-out dates). Depending on your location, we will either bring the boat by water or we will deliver the boat by trailer to a boat ramp near you. From there you can take the boat to the slip you have available to you.

What is the average spent on fuel per day?

We get this question all the time, so we’ve provided a guide with the average price spent on fuel per day on each of our boats. Please keep in mind that this is purely for estimation purposes, actual fuel usage and cost will depend on a lot of factors. Luckily, you as the operator have a lot of control over most of those factors. The major variables are the time spent running the engine, how much distance you cover with the boat, how loaded down the boat is with people and gear, the way you accelerate the motors, what RPM you run the boat at while driving, and the weather/wind that you’re moving against. Running the boat at around 3500-4500 RPM will give you the best fuel mileage and you have good control over all the other variables excepting weather – keep that in mind and you’ll likely come away with a fuel charge nearer the average rate than not. Generally, marine fuel runs about $0.40 – $0.50 higher than gasoline prices on shore.

Is fuel included?

No, fuel is not included in the rental price. Renting a boat is just like renting a car: we are going to give you the boat full of fuel at the beginning of your rental. When you bring the boat back, you just need to fill it up to the top and pay for what you used. For a guide on estimating how much you might spend on fuel,

What is the average spent on fuel per day?

If we find that the boat was not fueled up properly, we will fill the boat ourselves and will charge $8.00 per gallon. It’s in your interest to fill the boat up when you bring it back in.

What are the hours of your day?

Our days are 8am until 5pm. If you are renting for multiple days, your rental begins at 8AM on the first day and ends at 5pm on the last day. We have half days available, mornings 8-12:30 and afternoons 12:30-5.

Do you have a Captain/fishing guide for hire?

At this time we do not have our own Captains or Charters available, but we can refer you to, many onsite, knowledgeable Captains in the area.

What is your cancellation policy?

We require 48 hours notice for cancellation of a reservation for which no deposit was taken.

We require 2 weeks notice for cancellation of a reservation for which a deposit is taken, or the deposit will become non-refundable.

Bad Weather Cancellation Policy

Cancellations in cases of heavy rain or small craft warnings are not subject to this cancellation policy. Cancellations due to heavy rain or small craft warnings may be made by phone as late as the start time of your rental. Please do not assume we know that you wish to cancel due to weather. You must contact us to let us know you are not coming, or we will charge the card you provided at the time of reservation fee. If your rental is mutli-day and you have bad weather as described above, you must return the boat or have us come pick it up if you want any refund due to weather. Our policy is that if you have the boat, you pay for it.

Can I trailer the boat myself?

Sometimes it is more convenient for both parties to let you take the boat by trailer to your location from ours. In those cases, we are more than willing to consider your request to trailer the boat.
