We have rented boats from multiple places and this was by far the best! Super friendly, super helpful staff. Process of getting in and out was streamlined and efficient. Boat was in excellent condition, ran like a dream and very comfortable. We will absolutely be back again. And again.

I called after hours to make a reservation and left a voicemail. The next day, I called at 9 to make a reservation, and kept calling but could not get anyone on the phone. So I sent an email. The response I got was completely rude and unprofessional. If this is the way that this company treats potential repeat customers,... More

We have rented pontoons from Windsong for 3 years now, every time we go to St. Pete we rent a boat. The crew that works at Windsong are funny, helpful, and are very knowledgeable. The boats are wonderful! Anclote Island is a fun way to spend a day and is a short 45 minute jaunt from the docks. Worth every... More

Captain Wendy will take care of you for sure. If you're going to kayak, be prepared for a work out on that channel if you're working against the tide but the payoff if you get into the bay towards green key beach is unbelievable. If you rent a boat, stay in the channels for real.

Ahoy thepackardinstitute! Thanks for the review and glad you had a great time. Yes, the mangroves by Green Key are AMAZING!!! So much wildlife and peaceful paddling. And you're right, stay in the channel when you're renting a pontoon boat or a busted prop may be on your final bill. Looking forward to having you "Float Our Boat" again soon!... More

This was so easy and had the best time. Just listen to instructions and it will be a great experience. Respect your environment!!! This isn't a lake. It is a huge body of water with variable conditions. Need to pay attention!! Thank you Windsong!!!

I have been renting from Windsong for about 3-4 years. They have a growing fleet of boats and are heavy on pontoons. They have sail boats but I have not seen a center console yet! Maybe next year.

Hi Bruce D, Thanks for taking the time to review us and we're glad you always have a great time with us. We have no immediate plans to acquire Center Consoles in the future, but you never know. Right now, the cost of liability insurance for the larger, faster engines is quite prohibitive. Thanks again for your review! Capt. Wendy More
