Vacation Boat Rentals Reviews

Captain Bob,

I finally have a few minutes to let you know how much I appreciate you, the dock crew guys, and young ladies at the reservation desk who made our Keys fishing trip one of the best.  The 22 foot Seachaser we rented was in top condition and the driest boat I've ever been on.  (I used to own a 25 foot Mako, soaking wet at the end of an average day and your knees felt like you jumped out of a 2nd story window, I'll say no more).  Having the boat delivered to our dock and pick it up maximized our time in paradise.  Also, thanks for the fish cooler.  We filled it twice and always brought home fish.  I'll be contacting you early next year as we finalize our plans to visit the Keys.

Thanks again to you and your crew.

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.

Captain Bob, We had our annual fishing trip in July and rented your 27' Sea Chaser. We had a great time and caught some nice fish. I really appreciate the reliable service and the great boat you provided. You guys do the Boat Rental business right. We look forward to seeing you guys next summer.

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.

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 dock crew who delivered the boat to us.

They were 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.

Captain Bob,

You and your crew are great! We wanted to say a quick thank you for such a wonderful weekend. We enjoyed two days of fishing and great weather as well as a glorious moonlit night aboard the Glacier Bay. We will definitely come back!

We rented the 27 Sport Craft last month for a week. I just have to say Capt Bob was great to deal with and the boat was exactly what we were looking for. (not to mention all the great fishing areas on the GPS)We already have another week booked for this May. Thanks Capt Bob, and thanks again for the gear!!

I have been a boat owner for over 20 years, since I moved into Florida I have decided to rent & think about buying. Been to many bareboat rental businesses. Met Bob last year, and been renting with him ever since. He's got less price and more equipment than any other I have known or used. Regardless of that it is Bob seriousness, kindness, and the way he treats customers, what keeps me returning. Been there five times, and planning my next visit between August and September. Will not buy for now. Keep the good business going Bob.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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...

Captain Bob, Just wanted to thank you and your dock crew once again for a great experience. Your customer service is unequalled. We look forward to next year and our third straight year of renting from Vacation Boat Rentals.

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!

One of the smoothest operations I have ever dealt with in the keys for over 40 years.Very easy going staff and owner that you can tell really appreciate your business and got us out of there in about 30 mins.There are many flakes and jerks working most of these rental places but Capt Bob is down to earth and treated us the way we wanted to be treated. Already planning our next trip. It was my girlfriend's first time and she can't wait to go back.

I have rented boats from Capt. Bob for the last two years for a month at a time. I could buy a boat but with Bob I get the benefits of an almost new boat and none of the problems and hassles of ownership. If I have a problem Bob takes care of it. I consider Capt. Bob a friend and I will never own another boat as long as Bob rents them.

I wanted to take a minute and say thanks for making the trip a success. We had great weather and went home with almost 200 lbs of dolphin and 50 lbs of grouper and yellowtail. I would highly recommend you to anyone who goes down.

Capt. Bob & Linda - I would like to take a few moments to express my sincere appreciation to you and your staff for providing such a quality product and experience to my family on our recent vacation to Cudjoe Key, FL. Prior to making my reservation with you, I contacted some locals for recommendations, which upon a little due diligence proved to be about 30% more expensive than your company, while providing a very inferior product - smaller, older hulls, older two-stroke outboards, minimal navigation equipment, no outriggers ... - all of which caused me to do some of my own research. Happening upon your web site and viewing the listed boats and their equipment, initially led me to deem it too good to be true. I called and spoke to Captain Bob, who after a few minutes of conversation, I intuitively knew was the real deal. Together we settled on a boat that would best suit my families interests, both diving and off-shore fishing, and agreed upon a price. At the agreed upon time, I met VACATION BOAT RENTALS LLC's delivery person, who had trailered the boat up for my rental. The delivery person was very knowledgeable, and made certain that I understood the color GPS mapping and basic workings of the boat. He then gave me his cell # and made it clear that he would be there for me if I had any questions etc. Many people go through the motions nowadays , but with your dock hand I knew he was sincere. To sum it up, I received a boat that exceeded my expectations, and service reminiscent of a bygone era in America. I might also mention that I was the envy of every other boater in our compound, many of whom admittedly paid much more money to the local rental outfits for a boat(s) unfit for comparison at any level. Needless to say, they all now have your contact information. On balance, VACATION BOAT RENTALS LLC is truly the exception to the adage that," if it appears to be too good to be true, it probably is." Thanks again for helping to make our vacation everything we hoped it would be. Best regards, Tim Dearing & Family

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. Randi Barra ACE Environmental PS: 5 mph winds and $1.00 / Gallon fuel would be nice. Can you get working on that too! Thanks again.

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.
