We rented a boat last Friday and enjoyed the experience immensely. The boat was in great shape. Lindsay was most helpful and her sunny disposition added to our day. We will definitely use them again.

Have lived in Miami for 2 years and have rented with American Watersports in Coconut Grove countless times. Always have a great time, as a group of 10 or as a couple. Rob and Nancy are very professional and friendly. Will keep going back.
