Have You Ever Rented A Boat?

Hey There! Captain Chris here!

I always tell people that renting a boat is the best way to find out what kind of boat is the perfect fit for their family.

This past weekend my family and I had to go out of town for a family event. We arrived the evening before everyone else so we rented a boat! There is no better way to see a city that you are visiting than by boat. The kids always love being on the water and my wife always loves to look at all the waterfront properties along the trip. We are no strangers to boat renting. Depending on where we go, we have rented jet boats, pontoon boats and cruisers.

Here is my daugther having fun this past weekend

If you’re looking for a great vacation idea, rent a boat for the week and cruise the Florida coast line or the Keys. If you are not comfortable driving the boat yourself, most rental facilities will either provide you with a captain (charter) or recommend one for you. There is nothing like a relaxing trip visiting restaurants you normally would not have or seeing the sites that you normally would have missed. Don’t forget the natural wild life. You definitely will not see Manatee or dolphins up close from your car. If you have never done it, then a must do on your list is rent a house boat with 12-20 of your closest friends and spend a long weekend or a long week on the water barbequing, soaking up the sun and swimming till the sun goes down.

Check out the boat renting section on our website. Have you ever rented a boat? What kind? Where did you go? What did you do? I would love to hear about your boat rental adventure.
