***Please keep in mind this is a peer to peer boat sharing platform. Boat owners like myself have realized there are not enough rental boats on the market for people to enjoy the lifestyle we love so we make our personal boats available to all : ) We do our best to deliver the boat of your choice as well as your start time. However, during periods of high demand such as weekends and holidays, we may need to switch your boat type and time. If we were to switch your boat, it would be if equal value to your original request or upgraded for free. Your start time may fluctuate an hour or two as well but we always give you more time on the backend of your reservation to make up for lost time : ) Additionally, we may need to move the meeting location; we will give plenty of notice. Thank you for your flexibility and understanding!

Due to Florida’s unpredictable weather, we are offering a rescheduling program if needed. You will be able to reschedule and receive a credit for up to one year after your reservation date. Additionally, scattered showers are typical for Florida boaters in summer; it’s the lightning and wind that we don’t want ; )

OR YOU HAVE THE OPTION TO PAY A $150 CANCELLATION FEE.

We hope for good weather and happy boating!

Tampa’s Most Popular Water Experiences

On your Tampa Bay boat rental, you'll probably be spending most of your time sunbathing or trying out some water sports from your boat. Here are three other popular places to visit while exploring the emerald waters around Tampa in your boat rental.

Lands End Marina
Lands End Marina is a modern gathering area for every boater. It features fine dining and tiki bars at Circles Waterfront. Some of the menu items include fried calamari, coconut shrimp, and crab cakes.

Fish for Snapper
You'll quickly discover that Tampa Bay and the surrounding offshore water is full of shipwrecks to explore around the gulf coast. This makes it an incredible place to bring your fishing boat rental, especially for Mangrove snapper.

See the Pirate Ship of Jose Gasparilla
Captain Jose Gaspar, or "Gasparilla," once roamed and plundered the sea in the Tampa Bay area. Every January, the legendary pirate appears in downtown Tampa, and thousands of boaters mark his return to the city. His pirate ship sails into the bay, full of boat patrons celebrating with drinks, party beads, and pirate attire.

Tampa’s Best Bodies of Water for Boating

Visit Pine Key

Sail your Tampa Bay boat rental to Pine Key, also known as Beer Can Island. This is the perfect place to anchor your boat and have a fun weekend of swimming, camping, hiking, and even some deep-sea fishing, making it the perfect place to take a fishing boat rental. Although it is close to Tampa, very few tourists visit the island.

Visit Nearby Beaches

Go beach hopping down the west coast of the Tampa Bay area. Pack a deck boat with all of your friends and explore Treasure Island, Clearwater Beach, Gulfport, and Madeira beach. Clearwater beach also has an aquarium that features tons of aquatic animals, and you can even meet the dolphin that starred in the Dolphin Tale movie!

Sail under the Sunshine Skyway Bridge

The Bob Graham Sunshine Skyway Bridge stretches across Hillsborough County waters between the town of St. Petersburg and Terra Cerra in Manatee County. Bring a sailboat and get a great view of the bridge and the gulf coast while you enjoy a cruise on the waters.
