Boat Rental
The family and I along with some friends rented a 26ft pontoon boat for the whole day 9:00am to 5:00pm. We got a good deal thanks to a promotion that was going on! But man was this a highlight of our vacation! Crew Member Matt helped me out with the maps and also pointed out some good snorkeling spots. Boy was he right… The spot he told us to go to was awesome with plenty to see. Seen all kinds of fish.

Also it was a perfect day too! Visibility was excellent with very little wind! As for the boat… It was only a month old

Boat rental two of us
Sunset was great. We booked a boat rental when we walking down Duval street on our first night on our honeymoon. The guy we booked with was awesome. When we got to Sunset, Blake was working the desk. He was friendly and very informative l. He took out a map and reviewed the waters with us for 15-20 minutes. We are avid boaters and didn’t need the boating 101, but appreciate the map and lay of the water. There was a small shop upstairs that I was able to purchase a foam cooler and ice and drinks which made our trip. We rode around key west, stopped at the marina for lunch, snorkeled and stopped at the sand bar to swim.

It was a nice safe trip and Sunset was a nice company to work with.

These guys are very professional and on top of their game. I dealt with the agents who were extremely helpful. I am a very experienced boat owner and would recommend these guys to anyone. I rented the 18 foot Boston whaler which came complete with a GPS handheld and a marine radio along with a local map. I was extremely grateful that they showed me all of the hotspots to go to. He is very knowledgeable and an asset to their company. If you are reading this and know anything about boats, it is very rare to find a Boston whaler and a Cobia for rental. Great find. Would rent from you guys again.

My wife and I were in Key West for few days to celebrate her birthday. We reserved a boat online (saving $50) for day. I don’t know much about boats but was told a Boston Whaler was a safe boat so we reserved a 19 foot boat.
Another couple came down from Broward County to join us.
We arrived about 30 minutes early and the staff was very helpful. They advised us that the 21′ Cobia would be a better option due to the weather conditions and it was also a good choice as it had been renovated.
The staff ensured we were fully prepared for our outing. We took their advice and had a great day. We spent hours on a sandbar. We also cruised around the entire island. We encountered a group of dolphins and they joined us for about 30 minutes, playing in our wake and leaping out of the water. It was fantastic.
We went back to the sandbar and enjoyed relaxing in the ocean water. We brought some good food from Publix and enjoyed the music from the radio on our boat.
This was truly a Key West experience.
Sunset Watersports gets thumbs ups from all of us.
