What is the closest beach to surf ? We are staying at Siesta Keys

Can anyone give us the name of an airboat rental that would take us on a cool tour ?

Not likely to get waves suitable for surfing on the Gulf side of Florida, unless there's a storm brewing nearby.

Most surfers go to the Atlantic coast around the Cocoa Beach Pier or the Sebastien Inlet.

I agree- have seen surf but usually after storm fronts.

Airboat rentals are inland in the middle. there are ones near orlando (Boggy creek) and others south near FMB, and Naples. there is an airboat (of the non exciting variety but lots of wonderful nature to see) at Myakka river state park.

Or you can rent boats at Snook Haven on the river, cortez for the bay or kayak the mangroves in the bay.
