We rent all sizes of boats, bikes, scooters, paddleboards and kayaks at reasonable prices. Rent for an hour or all day. Everything you'll need is provided for an adventure you'll never forget. Imagine a family adventure while enjoying the warm breezes, sparkling water and the beautiful Florida sun while you cruise on beautiful Boca Ciega Bay or the Gulf of Mexico. If it’s FUN You’re After, We Have it! Everything you’ll need on your adventure is provided. Visit Caladesi State Park, Honeymoon Island & John’s Pass, to name a few. See dolphins and pass the luxurious mansions along the intracoastal. Amazing beach scooter trips from Clearwater to Ft. DeSoto and more. Navigate your way on a single or double kayak while you enjoy the sun. From our docks, we are one hour from John’s Pass where you can sight more dolphins than anywhere else. Along the way you will cruise through The Narrows, a bird sanctuary for Bald Eagles, Blue Herons, and the beautiful pink Rosetta Spoonbills. Take some more time and continue north to explore Caladesi Island, voted #1 beach in America. On the island you can enjoy the day picnicking, searching for shells, swimming the turquoise waters or just relaxing on the beach. The Hurricane deck boats can head out of Clearwater Pass into the Gulf of Mexico and anchor off Caladesi Island, Honeymoon Island and Three Rookers, where the water is clear enough to snorkel. Cruise down the coast enjoying the open sea and try spotting the dolphins jumping. You can head back into the bay through John’s Pass and stop at your choice of over a dozen plus restaurants for a great meal on the water. And as you come back in, Island Marine’s courteous staff will be there to help you dock the boat. If you’re thinking maybe you’ll get lost, not to worry, our boats have Garmin GPS, just follow the line! We also have other pre-planned routes and fun destinations on detailed maps built in. All boats have GPS trackers giving us details of your position so you and your family are safe. Would you like to play on the water without a motor? Try paddleboarding (the latest craze) or single or double kayaking. The intracoastal waterways are wide and safe enough you'll be able to enjoy yourself motoring around on paddle power. You'll see birds and fish of all kinds, even dolphins, plus homes of the rich and famous. And great way for the family to enjoy the day and we provide everything you'll need and then some. Would you prefer to stay on the ground? Try a breezy trip on a bike or a scooter. Go North towards Clearwater beach where you'll find incredible dining and unique shops. Go South towards John's pass and you'll find the same, plus entertainment. Go for a few hours or spend the day. The speed limit on Gulf Blvd is limited to 30 mph and there's a dedicated bike lane so it's a very safe place to ride up and down with the Gulf of Mexico within a glance to either side, depending on which direction you're going. We hope to see you soon on your next trip to sunny Florida.

Kayaking on the bay with my boyfriend yesterday morning......was a great way to start the day. We had never been kayaking before and they were very helpful with us. Was a nice quiet excursion on the bay. Got to see some birds native here to Florida.

These guys were very close to the hotel we were staying at so we popped in to rent some kayaks. We didn't get any of their names but out of the 3 guys running the shop, each one was nicer than the other. We rented 2 kayaks and they helped explain how to get in them, where to go, what... More

We rented from these guys a few years ago when we were last over and had a fantastic time and were not let down this time around. We had a free half hour for coming before which was a great bonus and we took out the boat for 2.5 hours on the end and explored the intercostal and the mansions... More

I called in to reserve a boat and talked to Chris who took all of my information. Once this was done he started asking me about my qualifications and told him that I had driven smaller boats but nothing like there's. We were just trying to rent somthing small to tour up the intercostal waterway. At this point he told... More

These guys are top-notch, friendly, very helpful and we felt the prices were fair. We rented a pontoon boat to go to Caladesi Island. They made sure we knew how to safely operate the boat and GPS'd our route for us. They were extremely friendly and we couldn't have had a better experience in renting a boat. We will definitely...

We were in from DC and rented a 24 foot Hurricne boat. Easy to do online. We went to Caladesi State Park and the guys showed us a safety video which also showed us the route to take. They programmed the same route into our GPS so we just followed the purple line :) Caledisi was great, we rented beach... More
