Vacation Boat Rentals Reviews

I have been going to the Florida Keys for over 30 years, often renting or chartering. Some of our rental experiences have been good and some have been very bad. Our rental experience with Vacation Boat Rental has been the best ever. The 27 Sea Chaser we rented from you was an excellent boat. It was well maintained and had all the options a fishing boat should have. We were especially please with the service and professionalism of your staff. You and your staff really made us feel like your utmost goal was for us to have an enjoyable experience and we did. Look forward to renting from you again next year.

Captain Bob and staff, I would like to thank you for the great service. I just completed my second rental with you guys and I wasn't disappointed. Even though the weather was terrible,I wasn't disapointed with your service. Your "guys at the dock" are amazing. One of your men was sorting things out at the fuel dock (major hassle) and then running down and docking boats at the other end. The drop off guy went over the whole boat with us and didn't leave until we were completely satified. He even went over the outrigger use. They both thanked us for our business numerous times. As a "field services" business owner with 20 guys on the street, I know what I want to see from my people and your guys have it. I don't remember their names but I'm sure you know who they are. We'll be back soon and will rent again from Vacation Boat Rentals. Keep those young men happy, they reflect very well on your company.

Message Great boat at a reasonable price. We had a two day rental from Captain Bob. We were staying up the canal from his rental place and he let us take the boat up to our slip so we could just go fishing in the morning with out spending the time with the paper work. The guys on the dock had all the hot spots set up on the GPS and all we had to do was follow the map. The fishing was so good we had to leave the lines out of the water just to eat a sandwich and the boat performed flawlessly. Returning the boat also was easy, we just filled the gas tank and dropped it off the last evening. We will be using Captain Bob's boats again next year.

Hey Captain Bob,

We spoke last week while I was in the Keys aboard one of your rental boats.  It was an awesome boat.  Thank you for graciously accepting my frantic call when the motors wouldn’t turn over.  It was early, and I hesitated to call, but the boys on the boat (my husband, brother in law and nephew) were all being super stubborn and refusing to ask for help!  As you stepped us through the problem, it turned out to be pretty simple.  I appreciate your help and the great customer service.

To Captain Bob Robinson

I just completed an 11 day rental from your company.

Thank you so much for providing such a nice rental experience.

Everything was great!

The boat was excellent and the price was just right. Thank you so much.

You are blessed to have a great crew who delivered the boat to us.

Your dock crew was wonderful.

From the way they went over everything on the boat with us to their kind manner they were great.

Kim was also wonderful. She is just such a pleasant person to speak with on the phone and attentive to every detail.

I will recommend your company and look forward to renting from you again.

We recently rented a 22' Sea Chaser with several rods/reels.  The guys who delivered the boat to us in Key Largo, went over all the details, and set us free.  We had a great time.  Temps at home were in the teens, while in the tropical keys...70s-80s in January!  The boat, engine and equipment were in very good condition.  I would recommend your company to friends, and did recommend you by name in the review of the house we rented.  Thank you for a seamless transition into vacation zone.

Very Good Buisness! I rented a boat for the week from Capt. Bob and had a great time. The boat was delivered on time and was nice and clean and had all the equipment you need for a week of fishing and diving. I gurantee I will be renting from you again. Thanks for the great time and I'm already missing the Keys. I highly recommend Capt. Bob Boat Rentals!

SIMPLY THE BEST, we rented from Capt Bob for the second year running and this year he delivered all the way to Key Largo for us. The boats are fantastic and his service and prices are the best in the Florida Keys. A big thankyou to Capt Bob and your crew.  See you again in October.

We have rented the Sport Craft twice in the last 6 or 7 months. I have rented from several others in the area and will say that Capt. Bob does every thing in his power to deliver what he promises. Great boat, fair price and excellent service. On top of all of those he is one hell of a nice guy.

Message I rented a boat from VBR and upon arriving I was informed that the boat had encured engine trouble. Trying to get parts from all over FL. Capt Bob and his team decided to replace the existing motor with a brand new one. This saved my vacation with my kids! I want to thank Capt Bob and the crew for an outstanding job servicing your customers. I will rent from them again and would recommend VBR to everyone.

Message It was our first time to the Florida Keys. (what a great place!) I chose to rent a 22' Sea Chaser with 150hp outboard from Captain Bob. It was really a great boat; heavy enough to beat through the waves in comfort. We stayed in Islamorada, and Vacation Boat Rentals trailered the boat to us for $100 (which, now that I know how far it is, is REALLY reasonable) We rented fishing rods for the whole family for a very reasonable price. We had a GREAT vacation and I'd highly recommend renting from Vacation Boat Rentals! Thanks, Guys!!!

This is the first time we have rented from Capt Bob, and we were definitely impressed. Everything was perfect - from the service to the INCREDIBLE boat and the price. Capt Bob and crew were wonderful to work with and made sure we had absolutely everything we needed... and then some. There's just no comparison to other boat rental companies we have dealt with, and we'll be sticking with Capt Bob from now on. Thank you guys so much for a perfect vacation!

I think this makes 7 out of the last 8 years for us renting from you guys (didn't make it down one year).    Love the boats and great service.

Thanks,

Capt. Bob. We had a ball last week. Your are the best boat rental company on the Keys. We are bragging to everyone how you drove 40 miles one morning at 6 and replaced the live well pump. Then when a motor blew a belt,you were there with another boat when we got in. Boats were set up great for fishing. We'll always come to you for fishing boats.

We just finished up our annual keys vacation and as always we rented a boat from Capt Bob. This year we rented the 27 Sea Chaser. What an amazing boat, twin 200 E-tecs, dual livewells, Taco outriggers, and a color plotter. If you fish far this is the boat for you, extreme power and very responsive wrapped in a fuel efficient package. Again Capt Bob was great to deal with. I strongly recommend Capt Bob and his boats. Thanks again Bob, see you in Dec.

Now that I am almost fully recovered from the trip, I wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed it. The Cape Horn ran well in some rough seas, and we sure appreciated the fine service and prompt attention given to us by all of your dock hand crew. Thanks again, and we'll see you next year! ps those Suzuki's were very enonomical on fuel.

A big thank you is due for my recent rental. I admit I was very nervous about committing to a full week rental boat, but everyone I dealt with was great and the boat performed flawlessly. I look forward to renting again next year...

I just wanted to thank you and your staff for our boat rental a week ago. We rented one of your 22' Sea Chasers and this boat was perfect for fishing both inside and outside the reef! I have rented boats at various outfitters in the Keys over the past ten years and your boats are by far the nicest I have rented! The boat was equipped with everything (gps, outriggers, livewell....) needed for fishing in the Keys and we had an absolute blast fishing for five days. We are already planning next years trip and look forward to renting one of your boats again! Thanks Again.

We just finished renting a 25' Dusky from you guys (2nd year in a row). I wanted to thank you for another great rental experience.  The boat was clean and handled well. Although we did not use your dock, the guys were very responsive to calls I made with questions and they even made a house call to fix the live well.  Thanks again and I look forward to renting from you soon.

Dear Capt. Bob, Just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for coming to our rescue after being let down by a 'popular' rental company in Islamorada. We have been renting boats in the Keys for 10 years and without doubt your boats, prices and customer service are the absolute best!! I just wish we found you years ago! Never had a boat with a fresh water shower before....that was fantastic after snorkelling & diving. The company we rent our apartment from were also very impressed by your service and will be including a link to your website on their internet site. Once again, I can't thank you and your staff enough and we will be in touch soon for our next visit. Superb Service!
