Vacation Boat Rentals Reviews

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.

Capt Bob.. We really did enjoy meeting you and the staff at Vacation Boat Rentals this past week. I know the rental business is very difficult at times but you and your staff took excellent care of us and we really had a great time. We will be back in a few months to do it all over again. Meanwhile here are a couple of the photos of the nice Dolphin we caught while using your boat and gear.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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,

We just rented the 27ft ProKat 2008 2660Center Console from Captain Bob. All I can say is what a boat. You ride high in it, rides smooth and it doesn't matter what seas are out there that day. That boat was great for the family with kids of all ages. The boat has a excellent ladder off the back of the boat. Great for diving! We will be going to Captain Bob for all our boats needs and hope to get another ProKat next time we are down in the summer!

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 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!!

We cannot say enough about the great sevice and great value offered by Captain Bob and his crew. We did a lot of boat rental checking while in the keys, and Captain Bob offers the best value and the best service by far. Stop looking around and wasting your valuable time - rent from Captain Bob!!

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!

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Great time fishing! Wanted to thank you for the great time we had with the boat. It was our first time fishing saltwater and had no problem getting around and catching fish. It was perfect for bottomfishing and trolling, we even did some snorkeling too. It makes it easy when you can even rent your poles from the boat rental as well. We had everything we needed and had a blast. The electronic navigation system makes everything pretty easy too. Everything worked great and we really enjoyed it! The dock crew was great and very friendly. Hope to come back soon.

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 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.
