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

We are regular visitors to Sarasota and like to get out on the water. We rented a beautiful brand new 20' Grady White Centre Console from Cannons Marina. When we arrived everything was ready, fully fuelled and in perfect condition. all the team at Cannons were friendly and helpful. Our day out on the Sarasota Bay was a great success... More

I have been a customer of Cannon's Marina for several years. As a life long boat owner, I have dealt with several marinas and dealers. Cannons is by far the best at service, sales, and customer service in general. Highly recommended.

Rented a boat for a week an the weather was such that we couldn't use it and the water so rough we couldn't return it. April not only sent someone to pick up the boat but refunded our payment. These people know how to un a business and we'll definitley rent from them in the future. Paul Lake Forest

We had the opportunity to rent a boat here twice this past week, and had a great experience each time. The service was good across the board. April did a nice job checking us in, provided instructions on the map, and suggested some nice spots where you could take the boat for lunch. The boats were both in very good... More

I want to start by saying that we have been renting boats here for the past 2 years with a friend who sets it all up and we come along as guests of his. Yesterday, we rented without our friend and went out on our own, so, you could say this is our first true rental. The service at the... More

My family rented a boat from Cannon's yesterday and couldn't be happier. The boat was in perfect condition and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We spent a half day tubing - they rent tubes as well which is a major plus for the kids - and cruising from Longboat Key to Siesta Key. I highly recommend Cannon's for... More

Boat we received for the day was in very good condition and was perfect to our needs, however it should have been given the price. We ended up having a really good day in the boat, so as a day out this is 5/5. However, the staff both in reception and on the dock were not very cheerful and bordered... More

My husband got me a boat rental from Cannons for my birthday and -- wow -- what a great treat! Living in the area, we go to the beach often but we rarely get out on the water. I have to say, the beauty of the area is multiplied by 100 when you get out out on a boat. We... More
