The boat

"This Carolina Cat isn't your normal tiny, cramped and uncomfortable bay boat! It is MUCH larger than a normal 18' boat, much more stable, and the hull only draws 7"" so you can get back where the big fish live! The boat has everything you need for a day on the sandbar, fishing, or even lying on a huge bow platform to stand while fishing or lay on for sunbathing!

Where you can go - You will start your voyage in Venetian Isles in NE St Petersburg just a 10-minute boat ride to a short boat ride from the amazing St. Petersburg Pier where you can enjoy an amazing walk around the pier and enjoy the spectacular views of the bay and the downtown skyline. You can also enjoy one of the dozens of waterfront restaurants, or anchor up at one of the amazing sandbars and float the day away! The boat is super centrally located Weedon Island Sandbar, Beer Can Island, and even our super-secret spot Sand Dollar Sandbar where you are virtually guaranteed to get all the sand dollars you want! Some of our favorite restaurants an easy boat ride away include The Getaway, Fresco’s, The Vinoy, The Big Catch, and the dozens of restaurants on downtown St. Petersburg’s Beach Drive and the St. Petersburg Pier. Great inshore fishing for sheepshead, trout, snook, and redfish, and mangrove snapper within a 10 min drive!

You can go lots of places but unless not windy at all, you must stay inshore. on a day when things are not too rough you can visit Passage Key, Egmont, Shell Key, or Bunces Pass if you want the gulf experience!

Features: Comfortable seating for 6, Brand new 2023 Yamaha motor, steering, and dash, Cat design is stable and a comfortable ride, Garmin fish finder, Power Pole, Anchor, trolling motor, and Livewell.

Fuel is paid by the renter, but the cat design means it sips fuel! In fact, the charge is only $25 per 1/8 tank and don't be surprised if you use 1/8-1/4 tank unless you drive a long way!

Those born after Jan 1, 1988 should take the free boaters safety course per Florida rules. Go to Boat US website."
