Our boat rental from Anchors Away was perfect. The boat was well equipped and clean. Mia was very helpful in getting us out on the water right away. I'm an experienced boater, and Mia's explanation of how to work the GPS and the chart briefing were helpful. We spent the afternoon making a circumnavigation of Plantation Key with a stop at the Toilet Seat Cut to add our own marker. Lots of sun and fun (Google Toilet Seat Cut if you aren't familiar with it)
Captain Gigi and Donny were a blast! Such a fun excursion to do in the Keys! It was our first time ever to visit the Keys and this adventure was one of the best we have ever been on!! Next time we visit the Keys we will definatly do it again!
Have done a lot of things, but renting a boat hasn't been one. I filled out the reservation online, and yes per the other review, I didn't receive a confirmation. We live fairly close, and wanted to go for a drive, so I wasn't worried about it falling through. I spoke to the owner afterwards, and he did say call next time. Easy enough. Showed up, was shown the boats available, asked questions, and received plenty of knowledge in return.
It's not the fanciest, and more of a local hangout I have been to their business neighbor, Florida Bay Outfitters many times, so I was familiar. If you want a valet, white-gloved service, this isn't for you. I'm not the most trusting individual, but we didn't have a single problem, or complaint. I opted for the 26' fishing boat, and we had a great time. There were no surprises.
The most important question, "would I use them again?", the answer is yes.
