We had such a great experience that we went back and rented a boat again the very next day. The people at Cannons were very friendly and helpful. Go to Passage Key to snorkel and you'll find tons of sand dollars...just don't keep the ones that are alive.

We always rent from Cannons. Their boats are updated and well presented The Marina is very professional and the staff are highly knowledgeable. The Marina is well place to either go out on the Gulf or Intercoastal. Stop off for shelling at Beer Can Island or lunch at Mar Vista. Great for spotting dolphins and manatees

This is a great place to rent a boat for the day. When you come to vacation on the Bay it certainly helps to spend a day or two on it. We rented for 2 days and enjoyed the comfort of our boat from this rental.
