It was difficult to keep the boat on plane in a light chop. Since we only went out 3 miles into... More

From the other reviews I see that Silver Palm must actually have some nice boats for rental and I guess we were just one of the unlucky ones. They obviously have a few crap boats they rent out for stupid tourists like us who paid up front and did not know what we would get. We rented a boat for... More

We rented the Mako 25 for 4 days and everyone was very helpful and accommodating. The boat was a workhorse and never let us down. We used it every day for fairly serious fishing in all sorts of weather. We would definitely rent here again.
