For fishing, diving, catching a sunset, or just cruising - renting a boat locally is the way to go. You will find a lot of helpful staff at these rentals to assist you for a very enjoyable outing, they will familiarize you with the boats operation and equipment. Coming down to the Keys and not going out on a boat must be a violation of some ordinance somewhere.....

Boating in the Keys is not rocket science, but does require you to stay alert to weather and other conditions. Help us protect the eco-system by staying off shallow grass flats and be real careful of running aground  and causing damage to our fragile reef. Bring your trash and all your passengers back with you.

Florida Keys and Key West Fishing Boat Rentals

There are several styles of rental boats available for fishing in the Florida Keys and Key West. For back-country or flats fishing, you may opt for a shallow draft boat such as a skiff or flats boat (one that you can stand up on for casting). Inshore waters can be shallow when fishing for bonefish and other flats species and these are ideal.
Most other rental boats are center console vee hulls - great for heading out in the reef and deeper waters. The driver is either standing or on a raised bench -better visibility and also helps keep you out of trouble by seeing and reading the water better. You can use them in shallow areas -just be careful.
These rental boats also double-up as pleasure boats for sightseeing and water skiing. Don't be afraid to ask for a banana or tube for the kids to get dragged around on.
