Bruce has been with CB's since 2001 and he knows exactly where to go to find fish. My son was reeling those fish in as quickly as... More

Big thanks to Captain Bruce for a fantastic morning's fishing out on the bay. We are complete beginners and Cap'n Bruce was very patient with us, explaining everything clearly and simply. We caught trout, lady fish, lizard fish and a couple of puffers. Bruce was the perfect skipper and he is a lovely guy. We'll be back again next year... More

My group of 24 wanted to rent some boats so we stopped by CB's store. We ran into Blake who gave us a ton of information so we booked the two 27 foot Pontoon boats. We listened to Blake's advice and were very pleased. We had 12 people on each boat and had tons of room. We saw Dolphin's, Manatee's,... More

Booked a 4 hour in-shore fishing charter as a birthday present for my boyfriend. Was so happy they had a boat available for the very next morning and our Captain Jim was wonderful. We caught almost 40 fish between the two of us and had the most fun experience. This place isn't just a place to get your bait -... More

I grew up in Sarasota and have always rented boats from them. The people are efficient, quick and friendly. The boats are average size and always available. I love the place! Spa Girl Travel on Youtube highly recommends it for any visit to Sarasota. You have to get out on the water and rent a boat from CB's.

We have rented boats from CBs for quite some time now. We have tried other places but always come back to CBs. They are knowledgeable, courteous and always patient and kind. We love this place! We owned boats for years and got tired of the up keep and cost of ownership. This is definitely the way to go and the... More
