So glad that you enjoyed a perfect day out on the water! We believe that our nautical paradise offers a lot of fun advantages to experience another side of Naples. We agree with you about our boats - they are the nicest in town complete with touch screen GPS, BlueTooth stereo, carpet throughout, boarding ladders front/back, 225 HP fuel efficient, quiet four-stroke Mercury Verado engine with digital throttle and power steering making for a really enjoyable ride aboard the 24' Hurricane deck boat.

We hope to have the privilege of serving you again soon!

“What a fantastic day! Do not miss it!”
Reviewed 17 April 2014 via mobile

We rented a boat for a full day!
For those coming from outside the US, there additional charges above the rates advertised to cover risk waiver & fuel (although that is based on what you use!)
The service from the team at the resort was excellent. We had a clear briefing on where to go (and not to), also on how everything works. Although we are experienced it was very easy to follow.
The inland waterways were well marked so it was not easy to get lost!
The boats themselves were VERY well looked after and managed to get to the maximum speed of 30 mph very easily!
This is probably one of the best value for money trips I have been on for a long time. Not to be missed!

“Awesome Day On the Water”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

What a true gem! I am not a novice boater; I am not an experienced boater. In fact, this was the first time that I ever rented a boat and Boat Rentals at Naples Bay Resort made it a breeze. This is a very reasonably priced operation which is $100 cheaper Monday thru Friday, and you have the boat the entire day from 8am - 5pm. You can rent a deck boat (covered) that seats 10-12 for the inter-coastal water way or a center console boat that is capable of going into the Gulf of Mexico. The staff is friendly and accommodating. They explain all the features of the boat including how to use the GPS, show you the map of potential destinations all the way from Naples down to Marco Island and they also make some great recommendations where to see dolphins and manatees. We set out with our goal of anchoring on a less-crowded beach so we took a 45-minute cruise South down to Keewadin Island, stayed at the beach for several hours before heading down to Marco Island. There is a pontoon boat anchored daily at Keewadin that offers refreshments, hot dogs and hamburgers for purchase so that was perfect for those who didn't pack a lunch. We then journeyed back North to Naples but stopped several times to get close to the dolphins. We also had an opportunity to see some of the huge homes on the inter-coastal up toward Naples. Weather was great and we will definitely be back next Spring Break. This is a must do if you are visiting to greater Naples or Marco Island areas.

Hello JMCBoiler!

Dolphins galore! Our area waters are known for bottlenose dolphins that are often seen jumping behind your boat in the boat wake. Dolphins are very curious and will sometimes swim right up to the boat to take a closer look. Manatee, the sea cow, are more prevalent in the spring, summer and fall. They are great to watch offering viewing pleasure of a different nature.

Our boat opens up this nautical paradise safely delivering you to destination using the touch screen GPS and easy-to-navigate chart of the local waters.

We look forward to hosting you again!

“Boat Rental”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

I was impressed with how efficient they were. Also, they were very accommodating in the explanation of the running of the boat, where to go and where not to go. Everything was in place on the boat and easily accessible! The price was also very affordable. We had a fantastic day!

“Top Notch”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

We recently stayed at Naples Bay Resort and were thrilled to lean that they had boat rentals. The price was unbelievable. We have rented many boats on vacations and have paid 2-3 times more than we paid here. We are from Minnesota and own a boat so we having been waiting patiently to have some fun on the water. The fleet of boats they had were brand new and had everything one could have wanted on a boat. We were even able to rent chairs for the beach. The staff was excellent from start to finish. We boated down to Keewaydin Island for the day, beautiful trip and beautiful beach. It was fun to meet all the other boaters as many are from all over the U.S. Don't miss out on this experience.

Hello Mary L,

Thank you very much for your feedback. We are so glad that you enjoyed your time out on the water with us. The rental beach chairs are popular with our guests making life easy not having to haul everything down to the boat or for our guests traveling by air - we are beach chair ready!

We hope to see you again soon - have a great summer!

Sincerely,
