Our boats are safe, clean and ready for whatever you'd like to do; snorkel, swim, lobster, fish, or just spend a relaxing day on the water! We also rent snorkel and fishing gear, so just call ahead in order to make sure that you have whatever gear you need to maximize the fun!

If it's been a while since you've been on a boat, we can provide some refresher boat operation or, if you've never driven a boat before, with a little bit of notice we can find you a captain.

Love fishing, but never fished in the ocean? We can match you up with expert fishing guides.

We also rent kayaks and paddleboards.

So, just let us know how you'd like to spend your time on the water, and we will do everything we can to make your time on a boat the highlight of your vacation!

We were VERY pleased and impressed with the team at Big Pine Key Boat Rentals! Before our Visit, Maya was super helpful and knowledgeable in picking the right boat. She even suggested a smaller boat and didn't try to rent us something we didn't need. On the day of the rental we met Chris at the dock on Summerlin Key.... More

This was our third time renting from BPK Boat Rentals. As always tt was a very positive experience. We rented for 10 days this time and used the boat for fishing and scuba. The equipment was top notch and everything worked great. We had one small issue on the last day but we called Maya at 6:15 in the morning.... More

Rented from Mia whilst visiting the keys from Ireland. She could not have been more helpful . Great instruction . It was clear and easy to understand . Followed her advise to the letter and ended up having a fabulous time ... She even told us she was monitoring local weather whilst we were out so we wouldn't run into... More

Horrible experience with these folks. First boat GPS didn't work. Second boat depth finder didn't work and that is VERY important in the Keys waters!! When we called Maya to let her know her response was after yelling at us that we must have "unplugged something" was "I don't know what to tell you". Damn lady these are YOUR boats... More

This was our first time renting a boat, but Maya (the owner) fixed us up with a guide for a few hours (Joel - top guy) who taught us all we needed to get going. The boat was very clean and had the latest GPS with Sonar / fish finder which was very easy to use. We had great fun... More
