    as dolphins swam with the boat
    Our family loved it. Well maintained boat with everything we needed just bring ice and sunglasses. Had plenty of fuel for a full day.

  • Had a GREAT time! The boat is great for 5/6 people. We rented for full day and had 6 people, also at times pulled the 2 person tube (this is a must, so fun)!! Leslie provides maps and instructions where to go. We drove, we pulled up to the sandbar and went in the water. Jumped to Honeymoon island and swam and saw dolphins. There is no need to be familiar with the waterways. Leslie provides everything you needs. No issues with the boat. Turned over ever time and very comfortable. Definitely renting again.

  • Leslie treated us to a great boating experience! Very polite and very informative. We had a blast !!!

  • Excellent experience, I would absolutely recommend to someone else.

  • We had a great time exploring the different islands along the gulf. Leslie made the experience very easy. She was there when we arrived, covered all the necessary information and provided us with great directions. We called her on our way back to the dock and she was there waiting on us when we arrived. Overall great experience. Thank you

  • We rented Leslie's boat and throughly enjoyed ourselves. Leslie is extremely friendly very knowledgeable and provided maps and information that made our trip a pleasure. The boat preformed flawlessly without a hiccup for us during our trip. If you are looking to rent I highly recommend Leslie and her deck boat.

  • We had the best time on a fantastic boat .Leslie was very informative and couldn’t have been nicer.Thank you for making my last day of vacation the best day of my vacation,

  • We had a great time on the water and Leslie was very helpful.

  • Leslie is the best to rent a boat from. The easiest, most organized boat day I’ve ever experienced. Leslie’s boat is amazing and so nice! Only boat expert I would rent from going forward because it was absolutely painless! Thank you for a wonderful day Leslie!

  • We had an absolute blast on Leslie’s boat. We took it out the day before Memorial Day. My girlfriend and I wanted a fun thing to do and decided to go out on the ocean. Leslie was not only super nice, but also very accommodating to us. She was at the dock awaiting our arrival, and back at the dock as soon as we got in. She explained everything to us in detail: maps, where everything on the boat was located, how to drive, etc. She answered all of our questions, gave us good recommendation and was patient as I’m a novice boat goer. We would definitely recommend Leslie and her boat for a fun day on the water and we will look for her again the next time we go out. Thanks, Leslie!

  • Out for the second time !!! Wonderful experience again !!!

  • Leslie was AWESOME! She was more than accommodating waiting for my 6 family members to get it together . Exploring 3 Rooker Island and touring the inter coastal was amazing ! Leslie’s boat more than fulfilled our needs ! Thanks again for making more memories for me and my family. And we will for sure see you in the future ..... Bye for now .

  • Fun boat, great response times and super helpful

  • Leslie was wonderful. Great experience. Would recommend!!!

  • We had a great time. We arrived early and Leslie came over right away. She explained every thing about the boat and had charts ready for you. Great location to rent from. We are looking forward to our next rental from Leslie.

  • Leslie was great. The Hurricane is a good boat. A little rough but in all a good safe boat with a good motor. I would definitely rent again.

  • I would like to recognize Leslie for her attentiveness. We got caught in a REALLY nasty storm(we saw more than one flare after it passed), but Leslie was watching her radar and called us 5 minutes before it hit(storms come quicker than you think). That 5 minutes gave us enough time to prepare and get home safely. She essentially saved our lives and the boat stood up to the challenge. If you want to go boating, do you want someone who simply sends you on your way and only shows up when time is up? Or do you want a Leslie having your back? I don't mean to scare anyone, boating is a wonderful thing and I will be doing it again, but always come prepared for the worst. I am forever grateful to Leslie and hope everyone stays safe out there. Happy boating, Folks. Thank you, Leslie.

  • Great trip! Leslie met us rught on time and even picked up some live shrimp for us.

  • We had a wonderful day at sea! Leslie was very responsive. Her boat was perfect for island hopping and a great price too. We pretty much showed up unprepared, and Leslie gave us solid suggestions for the day and provided maps. Couldn’t have asked for more.

  • Leslie was fantastic and easy to deal with from the beginning to end. The boat was as described and we enjoyed using it for the day. We would highly recommend!

  • Great experience dealing with Leslie. She made it very easy and fun.

  • The boat was clean and Leslie was very accommodating. We had a great ride to Clearwater. The most is underpowered for 7 people. Clean marina. Fun Day.

  • Outstanding experience. Leslie was very responsive, which is unusual in the letting business. The boat ran great and rode surprisingly well in the big water. Overall A+ rating.

  • Leslie was so kind and helpful and I would recommend renting with her any day! She kept in touch with us throughout the process and made the rental experience a pleasure. The boat was very nice and as described. She took the time to go over safety features, gave us a map of places to see and how to boat there, and greeting us at the dock upon our return. She even helped with getting bait for our trip! Make it a great getaway and rent with Leslie!

  • Great day on the water - good advice on where to go, well maintained motor and a brand new radio with Bluetooth. Thank you Leslie!

  • Leslie as a new boat owner was very service oriented and did her best is servicing. We shared boating experiences and gave her a few suggestion that I'm sure she will incorporate. All in all we have a great experience.

  • Leslie is extremely friendly, informative, and patient. She carefully walked us through all of the safely procedures and recommended us to the near by islands that are a must to see! Her boat is an excellent running condition and is a perfect size for a family, I highly recommend that you rent from her! And fuel included!

  • Owner was wonderful to work with! Was on time and patient with us when we were running late.

  • Lara as an owner/business person could not be better. She has a nice little boat that ran flawlessly all day. I no dought will rent from her again. Having the best deal in Florida doesn't hurt either.

  • We had an easy and awesome experience dealing with Lara! The boat was good and our day was great out on the water!

  • Lara was amazing! She met us at the docks, showed us everything we needed to know and even gave us a map of some of her favorite islands to go to. She was kind and professional, we would definitely rent from her again! Thanks Lara!

  • We had a blast on lara's boat. she was on time, the boat was clean and she had everything for us to get going. We were able to see some beautiful beaches, dolphins, and were able to fish. Lara gave us a great guide and was available for any questions. We highly recommend renting from Lara.

  • Great time with a good boat. Lara was very helpful and right on time. It was a pleasure to rent from her.

  • Everything was awesome. Lara was a fabulous host and the boat was as advertised.

  • the perfect day with the boat

  • We had an exceptional experience renting from Lara. Leading up to our booking communication was prompt and clear expectations were set. Lara is very punctual and met us at the marina in the morning and again when we returned the boat in the afternoon. Getting in to the water was painless. The boat performed well. It's a great little boat for jetting over to Anclote Key. Fast and easy to maneuver. I recommend renting with Lara and am looking forward to my next opportunity to do so.

  • Amazing ! Lara was friendly, thorough, and professional. She was very helpful and we had no concerns during or after the rental. Had a great experience. Would most definitely recommend her and would rent again from her !

  • Lara is awesome! great marina with lots of amenities included (but we are local so we just went home), its a stones throw from the sponge docks. She gives a thorough brief from safety to local "gotchas" which is a very strong positive in my book, especially for non-locals and/or newer boaters. The boat ran great with 5 adults. Yamaha 4stroke sips gas but... its included so win/win. We will definitely be renting from her again.

  • Lara was extremely accommodating and made renting a breeze, we had a great time!

  • We had an absolutely amazing time!! From the booking to pick-up and return and all in between. Lara was so quick to respond and ensure we had all we needed to have a phenomenal time with no issues.
    She gave us all kinds of recommendations for what we were interested in. And even took us to the club house so we utilize the facilities before calling it a day.
    I cannot say enough good things about our experience. In fact, I am renting again next month!!

  • Lara was great. Prompt and easy to deal with. Boat was very nice and as advertised loved the experience. Can’t wait to rent again with Lara.

  • I have rented a few boats in this area before but Lara is the best. She met us at the marina-she got us a dock cart. We made our way to the boat and she went over every detail of the boat. She told us places to visit and the islands to see. She provided us with all the safety equipment a person would need. We text her on the way in and she met us back at the dock. She told us where the showers were if we wanted to freshen up. A very pleasant experience. We will be back next year and will be riding more than one day. Thank you Lara!!

  • Lara was great to work. She made my first boatsetter experience fantastic!

  • Had a great time on Lara’s boat. She was more than professional. Great response time and walked us through everything. I would definitely recommend this boat experience to anyone.

  • We had a wonderful rental experience with Lara. We were driving to Tarpon Springs from a distance, and she went out of her way to accommodate our arrival and departure times. The marina was spotless; the boat ran well and had all the necessary safety and boating gear, including a depth finder; and the Anclote River/Egmont Key region remains a beautiful area to explore. After our boating day, Lara escorted us to a shower/changing area so we could dry off before heading to dinner in Tarpon Springs and return home. All-in-all, it was an exceptional first time Boatsetter rental experience. We would not hesitate to rent from Lara again.

  • Lara was a sweetheart! We had a great time!!

  • My girlfriend and I rented Laras boat last week, I can honestly say we were so well looked after! Lara really cares about making sure her renters have the best day possible on the water she's super helpful and will be keen to help you get everything you can out of your day. The boat itself is ideal for small groups and families, and for the money you just can't go wrong! I will be in touch with Lara again when I am back in the US to use her boat, personally I don't think other rentals come close for service and value for money :).

  • We had a fantastic day on Lara’s boat!!!! Everything was great & the boat was perfect for us. Lara was punctual, efficient and very helpful. We truly enjoyed our day and it was a pleasure working with Lara. We will defenitely rent from her again when we are back.

  • Renting from Lara was a pleasure. I reserved the boat the night before I wanted to use it. Lara responded very quickly and she accommodated us in no time. We had a great time. The boat was reliable and fun . I would definitely rent from her again.

  • Lara was very courteous and professional. She replied promptly at 7am before every other boat owner. She showed up early both times we met her. The boat was perfect, absolutely zero issues. She thoroughly went through her checklist, and we signed off and were on our way in no time at all. She even sent us off with a recommendation to check out Tarpon Springs which was wonderful. Thank you again :)

  • Great boat! Lara was very easy to work with and was very informative about everything! Will definitely rent from her again!

  • We had a fabulous experience on Lara’s boat using boat center. She made the process really easy and is very organized. She provides you with all the resources you need to have a safe and fun day on her boat. There was plenty of room on her boat and because you leave from her ramp in turtle cove you have many options as far as how you want to spend the day. We were able to anchor off in a few islands and had a blast. She has a small cooler that she lets you use which came in handy for us. The boat itself was beautiful. She has recently had some of the cushions re finished and the boat is in beautiful shape. The boat ran well and we didn’t have any issues with the boat itself. Lara also made her self very available incase we needed her at any time. We will definitely use Lara again. Thank you for such a fun day!

  • Lara was so easy to communicate with and responded to my messages very quickly. Lara was very flexible with the hours and meeting time and provided us with all of the information needed. The boat was clean and bigger than expected. We had a great experience and would rent from Lara again !

  • My wife and I had a wonderful day out in Lara's boat. Lara thought of everything. Boat in great shape with no problems. Met us at the facility on our arrival and was there on our return. Very detailed and professional. HIGHLY recommended; wouldn't bother looking elsewhere when wanting to rent a boat.

  • Thanks Lara for a great day on the water with your boat rental. We had fun island hopping with our daughter and her friends for her birthday!

  • We had a wonderful time and would strongly recommend Lara and her boat for any day trip! As for Lara she is a excellent renter/hostess who is prompt, through and ensures customers are ready for a day of fun! As for the boat it's PERFECT for what we were looking for; something to go zip around on and visit Anclote island for the day. I think 4 people is perfect, 6 would be OK but more than that and it's crowded. Notable features are 3 anchors to Moore it off the beach without worrying about it beaching or drifting away and the front and aft swim ladders were a great addition!
    An additional note...we rented with Lara a month prior but upon arrival the weather turned yucky, She had no problem refunding our money insisting we come back on a nicer day. She didn't have to do that and that earned our respect!

  • We had the best time on Lara’s boat. There were 6 of us and we had plenty of room. Lara was waiting for us when we arrived. She was the sweetest and went over everything. She even responded to my questions as we were on the water. We will definitely rent again from her.

  • Had a great time. Boat was easy to operate. Owner was professional and courteous.

  • Lara is very quick to respond an made booking and using the boat easy; she was prepared with all the paperwork printed and ready along with all the accessories I needed (GPS, Radio, etc) I definitely recommend renting from her!! Thanks for all your help Lara!

  • What a Awesome trip. Lara was there upon our arrival. Showed me everything about the boat. The Gas included was a plus. The place has great amenities. Your able to shower and get cleaned up after the trip in the very nice Clubhouse. She gave you directions, GPS, Dept Finder, and a Great service!! We'r intended to go back an rent within the next week.

  • Could not have asked for a better first time experience renting through Boatsetter.
    Lara was great! Quick , friendly communication and very accommodating. The boat worked perfectly and had everything we needed. I would not hesitate to rent from Lara again!

  • Thanks to boat setter, turtle cove marina and especially the owner, Lara. She was early at the doc for us, helped get us loaded up and was there to greet us on the return. Very helpful! The boat was great too. We will definitely rent from Lara again!

  • Great rental. Turtle Cove Marina in Tarpon Springs is a excellent marina facility. Owner met us at the agreed to time and we covered the Pre-Inspection and got underway. Boat ran excellent, very comfortable. Have rented through other venues and this was an excellent way to do a rental. Recommend you select Lara and her boat for your rental.

  • Hi Lara, We had a wonderful day out on your boat. I don't think we could have asked for a better experience. It was a beautiful, sunny day out in the Gulf, and your boat was fun for David to drive and comfortable. Thank your for prompt attention through this whole process. It was our first rental and you made it super easy. From the moment I made the online reservation to returning your boat, you were very prompt and attentive.
