We offer a fleet of Hurricane deck boats for rent. Our boats are 20 ft long with room for 10 passangers. They are equipped with fuel efficent Yamaha 150 outboard motors. The boats provide a safe, fun, dry ride... Our boats are coast guard approved and all have sun shade bimini tops, large comfortable seats and swim ladders. Visit the famous Johns Pass sandbar or enjoy a trip down the intercoastal waterway. See dolphins, manatees, stingrays and sea birds....Crusie by the multi million dollar homes that line the waterway. Visit shell key about 8 miles south for excellent shelling and sun bathing.
