We Will Meet You There!

Who We Are:

Tampa Bay Elite Boat Rental LLC is a family owned and founded by a dynamic husband and wife team, Josh and Megan Johnson. Originally from Indiana, they realized that there was a lack of availability and even quality from boat rental companies in the area and they saw the opportunity to offer boat rental at an affordable price, providing an elite experience for all! As previous patrons of other boat rental companies, they realized that they could provide a better experience, without charging more-allowing more people access to a stress-free rental and a good time! 
Josh and Megan have two girls and love to boat, camp and explore the beauty in Florida!

We strive to bring our customers an elite experience, every time when they rent one of our boats. We want to provide boaters and their families with an exceptional, safe, and memorable time out on the water. We Rent Fun!

Integrity: We are 100% honest and transparent with all of our customers and do everything we can for them to have the best experience possible. That is also why we are so forthright with our requirements, policies and pricing.

Excellence: We strive to ensure that all our boats are in excellent condition, stocked with a cooler, water, ice, and sunscreen. We strive to be a leader in the boat rental community.

Commitment: We are fully committed to our mission statement and to the needs of our customers. We will do anything (within reason) to ensure that they have the best, safest, and most elite experience possible out on the water.

No other boat rental company is like us. We go above and beyond for each individual renter, local or not. We want to ensure that their experience is truly an elite and safe one. We supply our renters with a cooler, ice, water, and sunscreen for their voyage. All of our boats are extremely clean and well-maintained. You will feel at home in our boats and always treated like family. 

For example, once you rent a boat with us, and treat our boat with love and care, we will send you a promo code for a future rental as a big “THANK YOU” from us as well. 

What We Do:

We offer boat rentals in the Tampa, Florida area. You can  level up your experience by renting fishing equipment (but you have to bring your own bait) and/or a large floating mat during your boat rental experience.

For your convenience, we also offer delivery services to bring the boat to an acceptable marina within a 25 mile distance from where our boats are stored for an additonal fee. 

We currently store our boats near the Alafia River in Lithia, Florida. However, we can bring the boat to you for an additional fee as long as the marina will allow pontoons and is within a reasonable driving distance (usually 25 miles). Some examples are Fort De Soto;  St. Petersburg, FL; Bradenton, FL; and Tampa, FL. If you cannot find a location from the available selections while trying to book your boat, please contact us to see if we can oblige your request. As a part of our mission to offer a truly “Elite” experience, we do our best to accommodate all our renter’s needs and requests. 

You can check our current availabilities on our rental page. However, typical availability is Sunday-Saturday 9AM-5PM. However, we also offer weekly rentals from 9AM on Monday until 5PM on Thursday and weekend rentals from 9AM on Friday until 5PM on Sunday. If you need the boat outside of these hours, please contact us and we can do our best to meet your needs.

One of our main core values is integrity. A  huge part of that is to be fully transparent and honest regarding all the policies, rules and regulations regarding renting a boat. For instance, you must be 25 years old to rent a boat and acquire a boater’s license if born after 1988. Check out our policies here.
