We rented a 22-foot Proline bowrider for a 4-hour morning cruise. We wished we had rented it for the whole day. It was not permitted to take the boat into the Gulf, so cruising was limited to the bays and channels between Siesta Key and the mainland. However, having said that, we could not cover even half of the permitted... More

We were on vacation and rented a pontoon boat one day and jet skis another day. The staff at CB's were very helpful and the watercraft were in great condition. They did not charge us extra or even mentioned anything when we were a little late returning the jet skis. We had a hassle free experience and I completely recommend... More

Awesome, the best word to describe our morning on board of Capt. Kevin Wessel boat. The Intercoastal and The Gulf trip was amazing, we caught a lot of fish and one special Barrucada. He was professional, fun, and his boat is very good and comfortable. I would Highly recommend him!

We got a charter last summer on our trip to Sarasota and boy did we luck out. Captain Kevin was extremely knowledgeable and knew exactly where we needed to be to catch some great fish. I've never been much for fishing and thought we should go as a group for it to be more fun. Captain Kevin was able to... More

The entire staff at CB's did a fantastic job of helping us select the perfect rental boat for our day trip on the water. The prices were excellent, all of the boats were clean and ran perfect. They went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed along with the making the rental process short and simple... More

Stopped here to pick up some supplies before heading out to fish. We did not rent our boat from here, but certainly didn't see a reason not to. Great selection of apparel and gear at very fair prices. Employees were helpful and not pushy. Will return for sure.

We have been coming to CB's for years. They are always helpful and knowledgeable about the fishing, and can recommend good charters, or rent you a boat. Their shrimp are fresh and last a long time in the bait bucket, if you keep if deep enough. Prices are fair.

I am happy to join the chorus of "Excellent" reviews. CB's is a class operation. We rented a nice 19-footer that was like new and the staff was very friendly and professional at the front end and checking out. The boat was very comfortable with an open bow and bench seating all around. It helped that it was a sparkling... More
