I see there are a lot of bad reviews here but my experience was pretty good. The only thing keeping it from being a full 5 star was that when we rented the boat there was also a small craft advisory out so they canceled all rentals...without calling me. Needless to say I was pretty pissed, but with some convincing... More

Will try to keep this as short as possible, only focusing on the facts that impacted the experience. - "Key West Boat Rentals" is a broker, but does not disclose at time of booking. After making a deposit on phone, we were sent to pickup our boat at a place called "Paradise Boat Rentals" at Murray Marine on Stock Island.... More

What a nightmare . Bait and switch. They do not have inventory. Will show you a picture of a 21' Bow rider with padded seats for $295 and say we are out of boats but will send you to spencers boat yard. They take your credit card and then rent you a center console fishing boat it's nothing like what... More

I asked if they had snorkel equipment and fishing rods. The rods and snorkel gear were $10:00 each. I asked for two of each. The date was set, 10:00 am... More

Being a powerboat enthusiasts, it's been sometime since I last sailed a Hobycat, so when I checked in with Sunset Watersports Key West to rent a Hobycat, my instincts told me to take a refresher course. A young man named Osiris spent about 15 minutes retraining me on sailing a Hobycat. I have say Osiris did a GREAT job. The... More

They rented us a boat with no oil. What a nightmare. Had to be towed in by tow boat, paid over three hundred dollar for that. This company said it was not their problem we sign a contract. When did it become a customers responsibility to maintenance the companies boats. They charged our credit card full price for the boat... More

This boat rental is in Key West Marina which makes its location great for daily rentals and easy access to good fishing and swimming. Our boat was clean, very clean and well equipped. All required Cost Guard regulations were met. Price for rental was lower than others in the area. Owner spent time with us to insure we felt secure... More

Basically this operation has been sold to a new group who has no idea about what they are doing. In the past they were run very well by "M". He had a cute dog too. However, the new management is so bad they are actually hurting the concierges in this area. I would never recommend them.
