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.

The folks here made this a really pleasant rental experience. We took a deck boat out for two hours and cruised down the intracoastal to Johns Point at the drawbridge and boardwalk. The radio had a cable connection so we streamed music from an iphone to the boat’s speakers. All the possible trips were already in the GPS, which was helpful when we got down to Johns Pass, which had several little islands and sea grass areas to maneuver around. Another day we rented beach cruiser bikes from them and really enjoyed riding along the waves. The staff was very friendly and had a “no worries” attitude about whether we got back right on time. Pricing was very good here.

My wife and I rented bikes to ride the beach. The whole experience was really great. Friendly staff and nice equipment. The prices were also very fair. We were going to rent a boat, but ran out of vacation time...........maybe next year. I know there are several of these rental places on Gulf Blvd. but they would struggle to be a accommodating as this one.

We wanted to rent a boat to take out into the gulf. The staff was amazingly helpful! They gave us great instructions for getting in and out of the channel. The boat had a radio and GPS, so we were able to listen to music, and find our way back. They have their docks marked very well, which is helpful on the way back in. I can't say enough about the staff, super friendly, and they let us let us know what all of the charges would be up front. We'd definitely rent from here again.

We rented a couple mountain bikes. The staff was over-the-top great and very helpful picking our route. The downside was the condition of the bikes. They are clearly in need of some maintenance. The chains were rusty, the brake pads worn way down and they didn't shift the greatest. All-in-all we had a fun ride and would probably rent there again but would look over the bikes a a little more closely next time. Wish we had more time because we probably would rent a boat there.

Very friendly and helpful staff, book early to get the boat you like best. It will take you at least 4 hours to enjoy the best of the Intercoastal.
