Boat rental in Islamorada with Click&Boat

Islamorada is part of the middle Florida Keys. It’s located about 90 minutes south of Miami, between Key Largo and Marathon. It’s often referred to as the “Village of Islands” as it’s composed of Lower Matecumbe Key, Lignumvitae Key, Indian Key, Tea Table, Upper Matecumbe Key, Windley Key, and Plantation Key. Islamorada is surrounded by water, with 24 miles of canals weaving in and out of the island. The Keys, in general, aren’t known for their beaches but rather for boating, kayaking, eco-tours, fishing, and snorkeling.

Boat rental in Islamorada is available with Click&Boat. We have plenty of vessels ranging in size and purpose for cruising around Key Largo, Key West, and Indian Key.

Click&Boat offers plenty of boat rental options with a captain or crew. When you rent a boat with a captain, you can appreciate the boating experience without worrying about navigation, anchorage, docking, or maritime laws in Florida. A captain and/or crew may come as an additional cost to your rental, depending on the size of the boat, the number of crew to guests, and other requests.

Once you find a couple of boats that fit your expectations and budget, send a message to the captain using our internal messaging system. This way, you can clarify any questions about the boat rental. Then all you have to do is book a yacht and enjoy the water. After your rental, be sure to leave a review about your experience and the boat!
