    Jay was extremely accommodating to our small party. He rented us a boat to cruise around in. We reserved 1 day in advance. When we arrived, he actually gave us a great small pontoon. He was patient and kind while educating us on how to run the boat. Love his personality. Hillary was also extremely helpful and kind. Customer Service here was excellent. Prices were better than we’d seen anywhere.

    Great experience! We had a lot of fun. Our guides were super nice and helpful. We snorkeled at two separate locations each for about an hour. Highly recommend!

    From the start booking with Luz was a breeze, she was very easy to work with and had great knowledge of the boats they had to offer. When we arrived at check in Luz greeted us and the check in process was less than ten minutes. We rented a 30' Proline, we did the initial walk around with Amber, she was so awesome to us, very friendly, kind and very knowledgeable about the boat, not only did she know her way around the boat, but she took the extra time to talk with us about the area and gave us some great tips. The boat was perfect, ran great and the Garmin GPS system is very easy to use and a must in this area. We traveled out to the Alligator reef light and the boat ran flawlessly and performed quite well. When returned to the dock to return the boat we were greeted by a gentleman named Mike, he did the final inspection of the boat and same thing, great customer service, you can tell the staff enjoys what they do and go above and beyond to make sure your experience is a good one. Besides the great staff and boat, the one thing that did stand out with this company is you are not restricted like other boat rental companies, they allow you to travel as far as Key west and up to 25 miles offshore, if you really want to experience all that the Keys have to offer this is the company that allows you to do it and again can't compliment the staff enough. Thank you so much for this great and unforgettable experience. We will be back and definitely going do business again.

    Wanted to kayak through the mangroves in Boot Key so I called Wheels 2 Go the day before. They met us at Sombrero Beach at 10am and by 10:05am we were in the water!. When we were done we just left the kayaks in the same spot and called to let them know we were done. So easy and convenient! I would highly recommend Boot Key for mangroves and Wheels 2 Go for kayaks. $35 for a single kayak for 5 hours.

    My friends and I were very happy with our experience with Quality Boat Rentals. Josh was very kind and informative. Several times we had to contact him with a question and he responded in a timely manner. At one point he even came out to our rental house to fix something on the boat for us. The boat was great overall. We took it out to Sombrero Lighthouse and Delta Shoal to snorkel, fishing along the bridge and hung out on the sandbar. We would definitely rent from them again.

    While recently on vacation, we rented a Harley Davidson Road King for a day from Key Cycles, it was a fabulous experience. The motorcycle was in superior condition, clean and extremely well taken care of. What a blast to go down A1A to Key West to enjoy a day of great restaurants, shopping, and terrific people watching. Of course, we stop by the Harley Davidson dealership to prove we had been there and to pick up our collectors coin. There’s nothing better than being on a Harley watching the ocean go by! As far as economics go, this was actually one of the more cost-effective things we could do and I would highly recommend it as part of a routine vacation agenda.

    Lynn runs a very streamlined operation. Her attention to detail and helping us with our schedule was excellent. Equipment was clean, new and in great shape. Highly recommend Lynn and her business.

    The overall experience was good and the tour guide David was outstanding! I think if the water wasn’t murky that day we would have seen more fish but Mother Nature won that battle.

    My wife and I rented 2 bikes for 2 days. They were delivered and picked up by Snoballs. Good cruiser bikes, perfect riding around on the Key and sightseeing.

    Ben was very helpful in setting us up with jet skis. He adminsitered the boating safety test to our son (16 years old) and walked us through the process of using the jet ski. Paperwork took a bit of time to fill out but had a great time. Would easily use this group again ($85/hour). And very convenient if you're a guest at the Courtyard here.

    The friendly service and great bikes made for a great morning biking over Seven Mile Bridge. The rental covers you for 24 hours, yet is priced as cheap as you would expect to pay for an hour, so plan accordingly. If you bike Seven Mile Bridge, be aware that the return direction was much much harder of a ride for us due to the direction of the wind. It's almost like you have a sail on you, pushing you back, so check what the wind is like by biking a few feet in the other direction on the bridge, before going out really far.

    Booked a 2 hour jet skiing trip with Big Kahuna. Texted back and forth with the owner. Agreed on 3 pm. Guide showed up close to 3:30 and seemed to have no idea what we booked. Oh well, we told him two hours and he proceeded to tell us we would do 1-1.5 hrs bc it was so rough. He was patient and gave us plenty of opportunities to play around and get used to the skis. The ride was fast and I mean really fast. If you are the least bit apprehensive, this may not be the tour for you. I’m almost 50 and this was my first time on a jet ski. I had to just throw caution to the wind and go full throttle to keep up. I was 50% petrified. We went through a small mangrove path and saw abandoned boats. Overall, a wild and very aggressive ride but we loved it.

    Lots of reviews mention the owner being the guide and say he’s great but know there’s a chance it won’t be him.

    We went to pay at the end and were told it would be approx $580. I started to pay him with a credit card and he nonchalantly said it will only be $450 if you pay with cash! What? Thank goodness he told us that because that saved us a lot of money. I’d do it again but definitely wait for a way calmer day. (Winds were 18knots)

    Reserved a 17' Proline and paid $400 in advance. A week before getting the boat, they called and offered us a larger boat for the same price as the 17' would not be available. On the day we were supposed to get the boat, it would not run. They kept promising to have it fixed, but in the meantime would let us use a pontoon boat (this is at 12:30, half the rental day gone). The pontoon boat was a wreck! It had trouble starting, smoked really bad, was filthy, and had rotted exposed wood. They promised to have the 21' to us by 8:00 the next morning. At 9:15 I drove to the marina and they had not even come in yet. At 9:30 the owner came in and said they'd get the boat delivered. I was totally fed up with them at this point and demanded my money back. The owner generated a credit for half the amount, claiming they had given me a boat when promised. I nearly came unglued, and "insisted" they return the full amount. They finally did. I do not recommend this marina as they nearly ruined our vacation. Also, their boats are old and poorly maintained (at least the two I saw).
