Nice pontoon boat rentals on Estero Bay, convenient location off Bonita Beach Road with free parking. There are pleasure boats and fishing boats with live wells and power poles which are very useful for backwater fishing. Channels are well marked. Nice to take leisurely trip to Fort Myers beach for lunch. They also have a boat club for frequent visitors... More

We just returned from a full day rental of a deck boat from Bay Water. The day started out great, the young lady that checked us in was very nice, friendly and helpful. She then handed us off to a guy that went over the boat with us and explained where everything was on the boat. Once again super nice... More

Best day on the water in a nice pontoon boat. Thanks so much for accommodating our wheelchair passenger!! Great price and awesome location. Saw so many dolphins I lost count. Easy trip to lover's key. I can't wait to go again.

Bay Water Boat Rentals have very good boats with helpful staff at competitive prices, but that's just the beginning. We loved our day on the water so much that we researched and then joined the Bay Water Boat Club and we couldn't be more happy with our decision. You can enjoy a great day on the water, and when you... More

Upon our return, the staff was awaiting by the dock to assist us. Some of the markers on their mapping that they provided was missing, but we quickly located our locations with a... More

We arrived on time. Waited 40 minutes for our boat (this is part of our all day rental time). The staff was rude and unfriendly as though we were bothering them. The rental boat we received was in POOR condition. Ripped seats, uncomfortable seats, poor handling and a 50 hp motor. There were other boats in better condition with faster... More

A great day out on the boat with the family - 9 of us. Boat travels at a safe speed and performed well. Ask for Steve - he will look after you.
