We will also supply a local chart for the day's use

a valid credit card (security deposits start at $500)

SAFETY FIRST

   You will be asked basic questions to determine that you can handle the boat & know the

“Rules of the Sea.”  

 

                               A free online course is offered through Boat US to "freshen" up your skills.  
                                                                    A certificate

is issued upon completion.

             
*I was born ON or AFTER Jan. 1, 1988, and want to operate a boat in Florida             Do I need a  license?

In order to operate a motorboat of ten (10) horsepower or greater, Florida law requires anyone    who was born on or after Jan. 1, 1988 to successfully complete an approved boating safety    course and obtain a Boating Safety Education Identification Card issued by the FWC.

Florida does not have a "boating license." The Boating Safety Education Identification Card is proof of successful completion of the educational requirements and is valid for life.



                                           **Please note**
This course does not qualify you for hands on experience, which is required in order to rent our boats.

Is Gas included in the rental and how much will it cost?
Gas is NOT included.

This will vary depending on your use, the size of the motor, wind, current, weight
and price of marine (non-ethanol) grade gas that day.  
All boat rentals are FULL for departure, we ask that you top off the tank at the local marina before returning to the rental dock. You only pay for what you use,  just like a car rental.
 
 

What should I bring with me?
  Driver's license, credit card, cell phone.
Wear "boat friendly" soft soled sandals or water shoes, if you plan to be swimming and walking the islands
as there are lots of shells.  
We kindly ask that you do not use a "bronzer" for sunbathing as it stains the upholstery.  

You may bring your inflatable floats for relaxing and soaking up the sun, but
 due to the shallow waterways, insurance regulations will not allow "Towing of any kind".  
This is for your safety. 

Our boats are not equipped to transport or hold Paddleboards or Kayaks of any kind. 
Please make arrangements for these items, as they are not allowed on our boats.

We are at an ideal location.

  Fisherman's Wharf Marina is located right at the turning basin here at the Fort Pierce Inlet, it’s a straight shot out to ocean. We are also near some of the most beautiful unspoiled beaches and natural sites in Florida. We are literally minutes from swimming in beautiful blue green waters, and some of the best fishing spots in Florida.  We are also conveniently located next to the public fishing pier and a public boat launch.  So you don't just have to rent a boat to visit us.  You can rent a fishing pole, get your bait and tackle and head out to the pier or jetty to do some great fishing.   Have a boat already?  Well you can launch right next door.  Need LIVE shrimp or bait fish, we have it all, frozen bait/tackle/ice/beer & supplies while on the water, come dockside and stop in and see us.
