boating this weekend

We (two couples) are coming down for the whole party thing this weekend but we also would like to rent a boat and do some exploring and snorkeling during the day. Anybody have experience with a good business to rent a boat?.....and where would we find it the most interesting to boat around?

Your best bet would be to take one of the snorkle trips available rather than rent a boat and 'do it on your own'.

Try Looe Key

Actually, Key Largo is what I consider the best location in the Keys for snorkeling with John Pennekamp Coral Reef Park - it's touted as the dive capitol of the world.

There is a watersports place that is right next to the Hyatt Hotel. It may be associated with the Hyatt becausse I think you have to go onto the grounds to get to them. I was watching them once rent small, outboard boats, to couples, and I think they provide snorkling gear and a cooler with soft drinks. I'd guess it's either for a half or full day.

You might want to give the Hyatt a call.
