We did rent directly from the resort. You can fish from the house boat OR pull over and fish from an island, shore or rent a small skiff. Fished and did catch some. Very diverse fresh and salt. FABULOUS time.

Price does not include breakfast, but there is a little store and gift shop which has breakfast sandwiches and other things. Room have a small refrigerator and microwave. I don' t know exactly where the skediving area is, but Deland itself is not far. The boat ride on side it the ultimate in viewing the "Old Florida". Hope this info helps.
