Currently, we only offer Pontoons because they are amazing for larger groups and families. We may consider adding more boat types to our fleet in the future based on popular demand.

Renters and any additional drivers must be at least 25 years old with a valid Driver’s License and By Law must complete a Florida approved Boater Safety Training Course IF you were born after Jan 1st 1988.  If you are 32 years old or younger you can take the free Boater Safety Training Course by visiting the official Boat US Site.  

There can be a maximum of 10 people on the boat.

We always drop in at marinas that are safe for pontoons. We can accommodate any location request if it’s within 25 of miles from Tampa if you pay the trip fee. We keep our boats on Alafia River in Riverview, but are willing to drive the boat to you so you can explore more wonderful areas of Florida!

We do not offer this equipment at the moment, but possibly in the future. We do however offer a large floating mat that you can lay out on while at an island. We also have fishing poles that can be rented if you’re wanting to do some fishing while out on the water.

Yes! Please ensure that you are properly certified for diving, as there are a lot of risks involved with diving. We assume zero liability for any snorkeling, diving, or swimming that our renters do while renting our boats.

When you schedule a boat rental, we lose the opportunity to rent it to someone else. As a family-owned business, this is detrimental to us if you cancel. Please check out our cancellation policy for more information.

We highly recommend you purchase insurance through our third party. You/your insurance are responsible for damages done to the boat during the rental if insurance is not obtained.

The deposit covers fuel.

We love our furry friends, but please only small dogs only! No pets over 15 pounds allowed.

Our Boat is Docked at Alafia River but for a surcharge, we can bring the boat to any marina within 25 miles that accepts pontoons!

You should always plan to arrive 30 minutes early to find parking, familiarize yourself with the boat, ask any questions you may have, and get ready for a fun-filled day.

You must be at least 25 years of age.

Yes. We do charge extra if you would like us to drive. 

Fishing poles (bait not included) and large floating mat. There is deposit required to rent either.

Your family, yourself, and be ready to have some fun! 

As a part of our goal to offer each person an Elite experience, we provide a cooler, ice, water bottles and sunscreen on board for all passengers. However, but please be advised it is not hypoallergenic or for children under 6 months. Use at your own risk.

List of items that you should bring:
Sunscreen (especially if you have allergies or babies on board), towels, snacks, extra water, and life jackets for children under 30 pounds.

Parking varies based on the location you choose to drop in at. We will send you detailed information via email with parking instructions after you book your rental.
