They have been on the key forever. Staff are generally friendly & helpful. It's a good place to rent a boat for the day & get fishing supplies.

We decided to rent a boat for the day to tour the area. My nephew referred us to Cannons Marina. A great referral. Very helpful, pleasant and knowledgeable staff. The selection of boats was top notch and the rental rate and security deposit very attractive. The boat was ready and fueled as promised. The staff provided us with charts and... More

From the booking online, all the way through to the execution - the entire experience with Cannons was great. We reserved our boat several months ago - and it was just as we ordered. The day was beautiful - and staff was very helpful. If you are looking for fun - check out these guys.

We rented the 20' foot Grady center console for a day. Great boat equipped with trim tabs and Garmin's newest GPS. The GPS trackback feature of previous boat renters trips made for a much more pleasurable, stress-free trip. We did a pleasure trip where we went to look at the Ringling mansion, went into Sarasota sailboat bay, had lunch at... More

My wife and I got a few friends together and rented from Cannon Marina a 24' Southwind Deck boat. We had a lovely afternoon cruising around Anna Maria Island and into Sarasota Bay. On our return to the gas dock a young attendant filled the tank, noted our gas usage and moved the boat to another dock. Just after we... More

Clear maps etc were provided and easy to follow.. When suitable, put foot down and went very fast , which went down well with everyone. We all caught a variety of... More

We had made a reservation for a 20' boat over a month ago in anticipation of a long weekend visit to Longboat Key. Close to trip time, the weather was looking iffy so we called to cancel the reservation. The folks at Cannons suggested that we stop by if the weather looked good and chances were they would have a... More
