Many thanks to Dion and Rick for their excellent customer service. We rented a 20' and they delivered it to Hawks Cay by 8a. The water was rather rough and after taking it out the first day, we weren't comfortable w/ our ability to handle the boat safely....and find the reefs we wanted to go to. One call to Dion... More

After thoroughly reading the Trip Advisor reviews for multiple marina's in the area, I decided to rent a 21 foot boat for 4 days from Silver Palm Marine. It was the best boat rental decision I have ever made. The boat absolutely made the vacation. We packed all of our fishing and diving gear and from sun up to sun... More

Dion and the rest of the staff were friendly, knowledgeable about the area and helpful in planning our day of boating. The boat was in good working order and available for a reasonable rate. We had a great experience and will be back next year!

Rented a boat from them for the day. They upgraded us to a larger boat for same price which worked out well for us as we were able to do everything that we wanted to do Dion and staff were very nice and helpful. The boat was clean and in good shape. Overall a very pleasant experience.

We did not rent a boat, but I was "stuck" there for 2 hours while my boat was being fixed next door. I had the opportunity to observe Aaron and Troy as they served customers. They treated each one with kindness and respect. They were friendly and helpful to everyone. They answered questions of all sorts, gave great advice,and actually... More

I reserved the 13 foot Boston Whaler for Tueday, July 10, 2012 for a nice day of boating and docking at restaurants. Unfortunately, we encountered bad storms after being out a short while. We found refuge at a waterfront restaurant for breakfast and waited a long while for the storms to pass. After this, we didn't want the boat for... More

The first boat we rented had engine/fuel problems seven miles out into the Atlantic. They came out and gave us another boat. A few days later at the end of our trip they charged me over $250 for not filling up the first rental boat before returning it. Even though I did not have a chance to fill it up... More

We responed as quickly as possible to get you another vessel which was larger at no additional charge to minimize any lost time on the water. As far as the fuel charge, please understand that we use only non-ethanol and... More

Our boat was clean, in great shape, and had a nice gps! The owner was nice and everyone was willing to help us find fish! She always answered our calls and was willing to help in anyway. Great boat, great experience. Would definitely rent from here again!
