Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: We rent all sizes of boats, bikes, scooters, paddleboards and kayaks at reasonable prices. Rent for an hour or all day. Everything you'll need is provided for an adventure you'll never forget. Imagine a family adventure while enjoying the warm breezes, sparkling water and the beautiful Florida sun while you cruise on beautiful Boca Ciega Bay or the Gulf of Mexico. If it’s FUN You’re After, We Have it! Everything you’ll need on your adventure is provided. Visit Caladesi State Park, Honeymoon Island & John’s Pass, to name a few. See dolphins and pass the luxurious mansions along the intracoastal. Amazing beach scooter trips from Clearwater to Ft. DeSoto and more. Navigate your way on a single or double kayak while you enjoy the sun. From our docks, we are one hour from John’s Pass where you can sight more dolphins than anywhere else. Along the way you will cruise through The Narrows, a bird sanctuary for Bald Eagles, Blue Herons, and the beautiful pink Rosetta Spoonbills. Take some more time and continue north to explore Caladesi Island, voted #1 beach in America. On the island you can enjoy the day picnicking, searching for shells, swimming the turquoise waters or just relaxing on the beach. The Hurricane deck boats can head out of Clearwater Pass into the Gulf of Mexico and anchor off Caladesi Island, Honeymoon Island and Three Rookers, where the water is clear enough to snorkel. Cruise down the coast enjoying the open sea and try spotting the dolphins jumping. You can head back into the bay through John’s Pass and stop at your choice of over a dozen plus restaurants for a great meal on the water. And as you come back in, Island Marine’s courteous staff will be there to help you dock the boat. If you’re thinking maybe you’ll get lost, not to worry, our boats have Garmin GPS, just follow the line! We also have other pre-planned routes and fun destinations on detailed maps built in. All boats have GPS trackers giving us details of your position so you and your family are safe. Would you like to play on the water without a motor? Try paddleboarding (the latest craze) or single or double kayaking. The intracoastal waterways are wide and safe enough you'll be able to enjoy yourself motoring around on paddle power. You'll see birds and fish of all kinds, even dolphins, plus homes of the rich and famous. And great way for the family to enjoy the day and we provide everything you'll need and then some. Would you prefer to stay on the ground? Try a breezy trip on a bike or a scooter. Go North towards Clearwater beach where you'll find incredible dining and unique shops. Go South towards John's pass and you'll find the same, plus entertainment. Go for a few hours or spend the day. The speed limit on Gulf Blvd is limited to 30 mph and there's a dedicated bike lane so it's a very safe place to ride up and down with the Gulf of Mexico within a glance to either side, depending on which direction you're going. We hope to see you soon on your next trip to sunny Florida.

We rented a boat or 10 hours, before we ever got there. It was a pontoon and pretty cool. It's a little older than the picture shows, but the boat ran great and it was really fun. We were only able to use the boat for 6 hours because of a storm and the gave us 4 hrs credit that we used the next day on a different boat. That was a Hurricane.. wow... what a difference. We were able to take that boat out on the gulf. It was a blast. My husband and his friend also rented scooters on day while we were busy with other things. They had a lot of fun running around all over the place on the scooters. They people were very friendly and the rates reasonable.

We rented 4 single kayaks, the staff was really laid back. They gave us our kayaks right away and we had them for 2 hours. We were able to explore the area on kayak freely. We has a blast, none of us had ever kayaked before(is easy to do), and 2 hours was plenty of time, you use a lot of energy. Great for people wanting out doors stuff to do. The kayaks were 15$ each not good price per person to do something different. Thanks we had fun!!!

Rented a boat and ran down to Caladesi Island for the day. Enjoyed having a boat to ourselves that we did not have to trailer all the way here.

This our second time renting a boat from Island Marine. My husband I were here in Florida in February and werented a boat for a few hours late in the day. They impressed us so much and we had such a great time that we paid a return visit this trip. This trip we had the kids, 19, 15, and 5, with us and we rented for the whole day. We took an 18' Hurricane out and went up to Caledesi Island. We stopped offshore and swam in to enjoy time in the water and on the beach. Then we cruised the intercoastal and swung bck around via the gulf. It was an awesome day and the kids had a great time. We will definitely visit Island Marine again!
