From December 1st until February 13 we rented a 25 foot Open Fisherman from Tropical Boat Rentals in Marathon, Florida Keys. The boat ran flawlessly for the entire 2 1/2 months. We fished almost daily either oceanside or bayside as the weather cooperated. About every two weeks, Jeff would come to our RV park, pull the boat from the water, clean the bottom and perform preventative maintenance. We coordinated the effort to not miss a moment of fishing fun. Jeff and Luz checked on us periodically to make sure all was well. This SeaChaser with twin 115 horsepower 4stroke Yamaha engines was perfectly suited for the two of us with a nice big live well. Standard was a landing net, gaff, outriggers, fenders, lines anchor, GPS and VHS radio. It was fuel efficient too! Thank you Jeff and Luz.

First off i have to thank Luzz & Jeff for helping me give my family the experience of a lifetime. You guys go far beyond the rest & really have set yourselves apart from the hurd down there. Totally impressed by your whole outfit. The moment you pull into this place its clear this isn't your avg keys rental company. These guys are capable of maintaining a fleet properly & then some its very clear. Rental boats are almost always beat up fairly bad, there ran hard & only maintained when something breaks there just run hard. Well not here total 180. We rented a 25' sea chaser with twin 115,s for 8 days. The boat was immaculate just crisp n clean engines look brand new & stainless props👍I even watched them hand wipe out the bilge compartment as i finished my paperwork no stinky stink👌👏👏👏 I had reserved this boat during the covid shutdown and i had a couple out of the norm requests. 1 being an HMS permit that's needed to target & keep certain migratory species of fish we were after. 2nd was for a 2nd anchor & 50' of line. Remember thinking ya right this will be a crap shoot. Past experiences elsewhere havnt been good at all i just say that. Anyway about 3 months later we show up & nothings forgotten about. The permit & xtra anchor i requested are in the boat waiting👍👍. We went over the whole boat together it a wasnt a rushed deal they make sure you understand its all in good to new condition all working correctly & its to be returned in the same condition it leaves in. Its clear they truly care about their fleet & it really shows. They even toped off the fuel right infront of me even though i said no need to the guage read full they stuffed another gal in there for me👏👏. Im a 1st time customer but i felt like i was treated like a regular from the start. We fished hard weather permitting My 10yr old boy & i got some nice mahi. We doubled up got a cow & bull both both just over 30" perfect wall hangers. And i & my 1st Wahoo i was targeting a nice fat mutton & few other species. Both kids ages 10&16 got sizeable fish to talk about also even mama got in on it this yr & caught fish🙌👏. A good safe boat makes everyone much more comfortable really makes a big difference for us. The boat handled everything great better than some of us did🤮 on the rough days haha. It has lots of rod holders 12 i think counting the tower good newer taco outriggers lots of dry storage thats actually dry even after sraying it down/cleaning & the built in coolers & fishbox all held ice all day long no problem. I was very impressed by how efficient the twin engines are on those boats they just have them setup correctly so nothings wonky. Plenty of power good ride fast plane even loaded down took the bigger waves good for a 25' boat i was very surprised. Highly recommend this company to anyone with kids or the wife on board or anyone that dont like wasting time or hiding your face passing other boats in the toilet you rented from those other guys😅😅😅. Huge difference trust me & great ppl that deserve the buisness imo. Thats why i did such a lengthy review they earned it 100% See you all nxt fall. Dont mess around Tropical is the best bet by far Trust me & Thank me later.

Our experience with this company was a great pleasure. It is one of the friendliest well run companies we have known. Thank you to Jeff, Luz and Paul. We will recommend your company to anyone we know who is searching for a good experience on the water with a boat that is professionally maintained.

Arrived early am to pick up a 3 day rental. During the initial walk around, we noticed the boat motor wouldn't trim... Okay, so the boat should not leave the dock without the ability to trim the motor. They said they need to take the boat out of the water to fix. We only have three days to rent, minus one day to fix.. Obviously, we won't pay for the day to fix the boat, so what if we just rent it for the two remaining days left? They told us, "that will be an additional 35% per day".. So, the boat is broken, our first day of fishing is now lost because the boat is broken and you want to charge us an additional 35%?! Unbelievable! We didn't even leave the dock!

Been renting from Tropical for over 10 years and I am never disappointed. I worked for the Florida Marine Patrol for 15 years and have alot of knowledge when it comes to boats. Jeff is very passionate when it comes to his vessels and takes alot of pride in providing clients with a great expierence. If there happens to be a problem (which they are boats) he is on it quickly and has never once let me down.I have recommended his company to many others because I dont believe anyone can do a better job in this industry, Keep up the good work and cant wait for our next trip!!
