I think this was by far the best Keys trip ever thanks to A1A Watersports! Everyone there was absolutely wonderful and went out of their way to give us a fantastic experience! Thank you Oscar, Ernie and everyone for a perfect day! This is how a business should be run!

My 9-year old daughter and I went on the 2-hour jet ski tour. I was hoping that it wouldn't be a slow-paced, relaxing ride where we glide along the bay... and it wasn't! First, we went to the ocean-side, which was a bit too choppy for a couple riding with us (there were 4 jet skis on the tour). We... More

Ernie the owner is a hands on guy along with Oscar his right hand man! Them and their team ensure that you are briefed on the equipment, safety precautions and areas to visit that are important. We rented a 24 foot center console Proline which was clean and mechanically sound. They gave us great locations to fish and snorkel. Their... More

We rented a boat from A1A this past week. What a great day out on the water!! A1A provided us with a clean boat which ran excellent. No issues. The prices were reasonable and Oscar and his staff provided us with all the info needed to have a great day on the water. Also, get there early to fill out... More

Oscar was the most easygoing guy you will meet when it comes to renting boats. Kept his word on reserving my boat without insisting on having my payment information. Gave us extra equipment we needed at no charge. Had someone come pick up the boat at the end of the trip to save us the hassle. These are real Florida... More

Booked the 2 hour tour to take us out to the reef and through the mangroves, sand bar and then snorkelling. None of us had jet skied before, me, my husband and a 16 year old and 18 year old. The kids needed to do a test before they could ride the jet ski, they read an instruction sheet and... More

I reserved a boat 3 months before our visit to Islamorada. At the time of the booking, I was told by the person at A1A water sports that we were getting "one of our nicest boats". They also told me they would deliver the boat to the dock of the house we were staying at. Neither turned out to be... More

I'am sorry you had a bad experience at our location. At the time of your reservation process, we did tell you that you would be getting one of our nicest boats. However 2 days prior to your arrival date your reserved boat was damaged by the previous renter. The day of your delivery the boat was not delivered because your... More

First time renting a boat form them. Got the 20 foot center consoled Outstanding experience. Oscar-Steven and Cesar all were awesome! Helpful and took the time to go thru all the features of the boat and waterway. Those guys are hard workers-they never stopped moving in and out of boats. We never felt rushed and we did ask loads of... More

Our family of four, which includes twin teen girls, had our best snorkeling experience ever.!!! The half day boat rental is the best value in the area. Oscar, Steve and the entire crew at A1A are helpful, knowledgeable, courteous and go the extra mile. If you want a great experience in Keys watersports look no further than A1A!!!
