Great Service – Awesome service, picked me up on Fisher Island, took me back to Coconut Grove to ride jet skis for an hour. Then we took my kids tubing for an hour, then back to fisher island. was absolutely amazing, A++++
Lots of Fun – Spent the day on the biscayne bay, had a lot of fun with my family. Rented for 8 hours and paid under $500 total. Will definately do again.
The staff showed me a map, briefed me on the boat and sent us on our way. I had never driven a boat before, but they made me comfortable and we had no problems.
Best Jet Ski Rentals – Awesome jet ski ride. Brand new 1100s, went all over miami. From Coconut Grove, Downtown, Fisher Island, Star Island, South Beach, Key Biscayne and a Sandbar. Was Awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The following is my story: On Tuesday I left a $200 deposit to rent American Watersports' 21-foot Laguna with center console fishing boar; I wanted to take my 8 and 15 year old boys fishing that Friday. On Thursday I was contacted by someone who worked there and was told that the fishing boat was no longer available, but that they would rent me their 24' Sea Ray Sundeck for the same price. Although the Sea Ray Sundeck was not the boat I wanted because it was more a cruising than a fishing boat, I had already spent so much money on fishing equipment that I was afraid I was not going to be able to find another fishing boat by the next day; and one of the promises I had made to my sons was that I would take them fishing that week which I had taken as vacation from my employer.
We then went fishing and caught a couple of fish.
When we returned the boat, the owner's assistant told me that I had damaged the propeller and was going to be charged an additional $300 to fix it. However, because I had not checked the propeller before we went fishing, I could not fight his word and was charged $300 for a dent that was probably already there.
In the end, even though I paid half of the original price, I ended up paying more than the full amount, and then some more.
My advice to you is to be very careful with discounts dealers are advertising out there ... times are tough and they will do whatever necessary to make-up for whatever they lost on those discounts.
Because I thought I could trust this dealer, I did not check the propeller before leaving and ended-up paying the price.
