Located at the tip of Florida’s Key chain, Key West’s island atmosphere, laid back attitude and nautical location make it the perfect destination for boating, fishing and water sports enthusiasts. Once you’ve walked Duval Street, snapped a selfie at the southernmost point buoy and had a cheeseburger at Margaritaville, it’s time to rent a boat and get out on those turquoise waves of the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico.

Along with other boat-based activities, Key West is one of the best destinations to dine by boat. Enjoy a leisurely cruise before pulling up just in time for happy hour. Afterwards, watch the famous Mallory Square sunset from the deck. Also, you’ll be closer to Cuba than the mainland United States. How cool is that?

If we haven’t caught your attention yet, read on for some of our recommendations for great Key West boat rentals.

Wellcraft Scarab 32

With twin Evinrude outboard engines, this 32-foot center console can take on the waves for a day of cruising, sightseeing and water sports.
