Boat rentals are worth it for the right kind of person

Capt. Joe hooked us up with a 25' Cat for a week and we had a really good time fishing, snorkeling, and joy riding. While some may question his boat rental approach and model... read more

The boat was not as pictured, but it was "ok." Got great instructions on where to go and what to do and got a tube for fun and some noodles, too! Only problem was before we headed out, he asked for a $1,000 security deposit. This was not in any prior emails and I still can't find the information on... More

Can't believe Joe is still in business. As an avid offshore fisher family from California, we were excited to reserve an awesome boat online for 3 days fishing. When we arrived, the boat we reserved did not exist (one like it was sinking at the dock). Joe said he had a better boat for us. After waiting 2 hrs. he... More

We were staying on Key West and wanted to rent a boat but found the prices there too expensive. So we searched a little farther out and found Joe. He gave us a great price on a half day rental. But, before he would let me take the boat out, he drilled me on the colors, shapes and uses of... More

It's hard to give a poor review because the owner was so nice to us and the price was great, but the boats are in very poor condition. The boats pictured on their website do not exist. The boat we were supposed to rent looked like it could barely float, and the boat we ended up with was in pretty... More

Spent a half day fishing and snorkeling on Capt Joe's boat. Boat was in excellent order. The rental included fishing gear, bait, and wet suit jackets at no extra charge. Thorough check out and lots of tips on where to go in the area. We will rent here again on our next trip.

We used Joe 7 years ago to rent a flats boat, and we used him again this past week to do the same based off our positive experience with him last time. Joe is friendly, and he cares about his client's safety. Be potentially prepared to talk to him in detail about your plans so we can get a sense... More

We had called and arranged a fishing trip for Tuesday morning. We arrived a keys boat rentals and met with Captain Joe. There were five of us wanting to go out, which would have been about a 450.00 fee to take us out. Capt. Joe said he would be happy to take us out, but we weren't going to catch... More

We rented a deck boat for the day. Joe gave us complete training on navigating and safety. He won't let the boats out unless he is confident you can run it safely. He charted a sight seeing course for us and it was prefect. It include a stop for lunch at Kiwi Sands (Awesome). Boats include a color GPS which... More

We rented a 22' sailfish for a great price. The people were very nice. The boat came with all the needed technology, including a GPS with coordinates. Which was very helpful since we have not fished the area very much. We caught fish and had a great time. Would totally go back!
