We rent all sizes of boats, bikes, scooters, paddleboards and kayaks at reasonable prices. Rent for an hour or all day. Everything you'll need is provided for an adventure you'll never forget.

Imagine a family adventure while enjoying the warm breezes, sparkling water and the beautiful Florida sun while you cruise on beautiful Boca Ciega Bay or the Gulf of Mexico.

If it’s FUN You’re After, We Have it!

Everything you’ll need on your adventure is provided.

Visit Caladesi State Park, Honeymoon Island & John’s Pass, to name a few. See dolphins and pass the luxurious mansions along the intracoastal. Amazing beach scooter trips from Clearwater to Ft. DeSoto and more. Navigate your way on a single or double kayak while you enjoy the sun.

From our docks, we are one hour from John’s Pass where you can sight more dolphins than anywhere else. Along the way you will cruise through The Narrows, a bird sanctuary for Bald Eagles, Blue Herons, and the beautiful pink Rosetta Spoonbills.

Take some more time and continue north to explore Caladesi Island, voted #1 beach in America. On the island you can enjoy the day picnicking, searching for shells, swimming the turquoise waters or just relaxing on the beach.

The Hurricane deck boats can head out of Clearwater Pass into the Gulf of Mexico and anchor off Caladesi Island, Honeymoon Island and Three Rookers, where the water is clear enough to snorkel.

Cruise down the coast enjoying the open sea and try spotting the dolphins jumping. You can head back into the bay through John’s Pass and stop at your choice of over a dozen plus restaurants for a great meal on the water.

And as you come back in, Island Marine’s courteous staff will be there to help you dock the boat. If you’re thinking maybe you’ll get lost, not to worry, our boats have Garmin GPS, just follow the line! We also have other pre-planned routes and fun destinations on detailed maps built in. All boats have GPS trackers giving us details of your position so you and your family are safe.

Would you like to play on the water without a motor? Try paddleboarding (the latest craze) or single or double kayaking. The intracoastal waterways are wide and safe enough you'll be able to enjoy yourself motoring around on paddle power. You'll see birds and fish of all kinds, even dolphins, plus homes of the rich and famous. And great way for the family to enjoy the day and we provide everything you'll need and then some.

Would you prefer to stay on the ground? Try a breezy trip on a bike or a scooter. Go North towards Clearwater beach where you'll find incredible dining and unique shops. Go South towards John's pass and you'll find the same, plus entertainment. Go for a few hours or spend the day.

The speed limit on Gulf Blvd is limited to 30 mph and there's a dedicated bike lane so it's a very safe place to ride up and down with the Gulf of Mexico within a glance to either side, depending on which direction you're going.

We hope to see you soon on your next trip to sunny Florida.

This is a great find! Friendly, kind, and affordable. The staff were so welcoming and answered all kinds of questions. I would rent here again. My teen daughter and I rented paddleboards; she was an expert and I was a novice. Highly recommend!

We showed up at maybe 9:30am to rent a kayak and a paddleboard, and the guys were super nice and really helpful. We had to walk the gear about a block and cross Gulf Blvd to get to the Gulf of Mexico, so they started our rental at 10:00am to give us a little free time for portage. We were... More

Went to island marine for a boat rental on their 19 foot hurricane deck boat. The boat came well equipped with a gps and stereo that had bluetooth built into it. The video orientation to the ICW was very helpful and captain Joey did a great job of giving me a detailed walk around of the boat and safety gear... More

Excellent service! Very friendly staff. From our departure on the boat to our arrival we had a great time. We rented a 20' hurricane for 6 hours and went to Caledesi Park, the trip was entered on a GPS for us and all we had to do was stay on course. Would highly recommend Island Marine Rentals to anyone looking... More

It was the kids first real boat ride so I wanted to make it a good one. We arrived a little early and Chris was very accommodating. I watched the short video and did my safety test then we went out to do the "onboard orientation." They did a great job making sure our stuff got on the boat but... More

Pretty sure we talked to the owner about our kayak rental, he was friendly and was happy to be there! He even suggested a cost-saving option for my wife and I, and upon return of the equipment, talked with us about restaurants and good beach spots. Awesome place, even the guys at the dock were friendly and positive. Give your... More
