Vacation Boat Rentals Reviews

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.

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

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

I have not even made it down there yet. But Capt Bob has gone out of his way to ensure that my trip in May will be a success. Capt Bob has shown more respect for the customer than all of the other boat rental companies. He is sincere and takes his time in explaining everything that you need to know. Thanks 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.

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.

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!

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, 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.

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.

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!!!

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.

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!

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.

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.

I want to thank you for a most enjoyable boat rental experience.  You have been so helpful throughout this process.  Mostly I want to thank the guys at the dock.  They are friendly, courteous, and extrememly helpful.  They provided me with a wealth of information on handling and docking the boat and they did it with patience.  The Dusky was a fantastic boat, too.  An enjoyable boat rental experience is hard to come by -  you guys did it with flying colors!  I can't wait to come back.  Thanks again!
