Great time!! I would highly recommend. Enjoyable for us and our 16 year old daughter. We saw lots of dolphins, learned a lot and made it out to the gulf in time for sunset.

Super trip in the water. We saw dolphins and manatee. Roxanne told a lot of interesting things, but much of it was hard to hear because of loud music from the radio. I dont understand why you want to listen to loud music in a...More

This was a relaxing, beautiful 90 min. boat ride aboard the Princess, located on Church Street. Dana played some awesome tunes. We eventually saw dolphins playing behind the boat.

I recommend you skip jet ski rentals from Bradenton Beach Marina (a excellent Marina made up of some private businesses within) Watersplash jet rentals-- we will skip in future unless you like to ride with the owner to a restricted area they call theirs -hardly! The literature- we did not read in advance- only there since all skis in cortez rented states "You ride the jet ski in our large riding Area) hardly theirs and hardly large it limits rider to narrow boring Palma Solo...More

Just wanted to say thanks to all the regular posters on the AMI forum- the local experts along with the out of state experts who travel to AMI often. We just returned home from our first trip to AMI and loved it. I am a big trip researcher and get many ideas from Tripadvisor forums (reading posts and reviews) prior to our family trips so I wanted to repay the favor for anyone else researching and looking for info and to thank the posters in the AMI forum.

Boat rental (5 Replies)
Hello , We (2 people) are looking at renting a small boat to celebrate a 50th bday. Bradenton Beach marina offers small boats for 4 or 8 hour rentals , at a reasonable rate. Has anyone had any experience renting from them and or can anyone offer any info. On boating in the area - the website says you can go from Cortez bridge to Ringling Causeway Bridge - just wondering if there is enough area/things to do, making it worth it. Any information is appreciated!!

We rent a boat every year we're there on vacation. We have alternated between renting on AMI/Longboat, and Siesta Key. Here's a thread on other boat rental locations: https:/…58763584
