“Outstanding Sun and Water Gear and Clothes Shop”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

We like to think we are picky shoppers. We want good quality with a sense of style. And while we also love paying the best price on top of that, sometimes you find a shop that just makes you throw that out that window. This shop knows what it's doing: not only in terms of the gear it offers for a great many water sports, but also because they have a good eye for quality clothing, shoes, hats and accessories. In no time flat, my wife found a stylish and wonderfully comfortable Keen sandals, a very cute sun hat, and a cool, practical carry-all bag with bright beach colors and deep pockets all around. We haven't put it down for days. The service was excellent, too. They gladly accommodated a special request we had, that made out day much easier.

“AMI Outfitters, a great shop to visit”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

We stopped in to the AMI Outfitter store, needing an outfitter "fix". Really nice shop with high quality gear. A good selection of kayak, fishing and even accessories for the outdoor dog! Best was the shop dog, Leo! Will visit again on our next trip to Anna Maria Island! ps. the owners are really pleasant and knowledgeable about the area.

“Great store. Great owners.”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

My husband and I stopped by during our February trip to Longboat Key and Anna Maria Island. AMI is a terrific store. Well-stocked with quality goods and the owners were fabulous, friendly and very knowledgeable of the lines they carry but also of the area. They also happened to have the perfect item for me (a lightweight nylon water bottle carrier complete with a few extra pockets to keep various items). It's absolutely perfect for walks, hikes, etc. and was used daily when we walked the beautiful beaches during our vacation. Also love the sun hat I bought. A nice shop to visit for serious fishermen all the way to couples just casually browsing.
