“Shame about the staff!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

Boat we received for the day was in very good condition and was perfect to our needs, however it should have been given the price. We ended up having a really good day in the boat, so as a day out this is 5/5. However, the staff both in reception and on the dock were not very cheerful and bordered on rude, and ruined it a bit. Great day but this loses a star because of the staff.

“Boat Rental from Cannons - Great Birthday Gift!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013

My husband got me a boat rental from Cannons for my birthday and -- wow -- what a great treat! Living in the area, we go to the beach often but we rarely get out on the water. I have to say, the beauty of the area is multiplied by 100 when you get out out on a boat. We even saw two manatees! The boat we rented from Cannons was very nice - clean and ran very well. The guy who rented us the boat was extremely polite and offered us some suggestions on where to go. He also told us which restaurants we could boat to. If you ever need an extra-special birthday gift, a boat rental from Cannons is a great idea. Awesome experience!

Cannons has the best customer service and choice of boats. The service manager, Angela, is very helpful and knowledgeable about the boats and motors they handle and service.

Great baot dealer with rentals too! You should be aware of the shoals in the canals...it was a little dicey on that level. Otherwise a great experience, great quality rental boat.

“Get out on the water”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012

Rent a boat for the day to really explore the bay. Cannons is efficient with a good selection of boats and accessories. Helpful staff will plan your day. Call in advance to get the size boat you need.
