I was down in Marathon over Christmas with some friends and found A-Affordable Boats rentals just from the sign on the Overseas Highway. We weren't looking for it, but it was a cute area on Conch Key that seemed quite quaint. Billy the owner was super friendly and always smiling. He gave us great recommendations for bars and restaurants in Marathon and down to Key West. So the actual boat rental was easy, quick. They gave us a tour around the gulf side and took us down to the 7 mile bridge. That is so cool seeing it from the water instead of on the bridge. We didn't snorkle because it was kind of chilly out on the water but had the option to rent the gear and use it. We only rented half day but believe me there was more than enough to do for a full day. The whole experience was that of which you only get from a small local business. Check em out!
Aaron and Troy went out of thier way to be kind and helpful to each customer that came in. I was stuck here for 2 hours and watched them work.(My boat was being repaired next door.) They helped countless customers and always treated them with respect and skill. They gave me water when I overheated from the sun. Their mothers should be proud of them. They treated an old lady with kindness! This is the place to go for boat rentals. They have it all from kayaks to offshore fishing boats. They sell live and frozen bait, tackle and gear, snacks and drinks. They have a boat ramp too. I hope their boss reads this and understands how good employees can make or break you. These are the ones to keep and to value.
Top notch operation! Recently rented their 29' Everglades for a few days of fishing, diving and cruising around and everything about this boat was great. Made our vacation very enjoyable from fishing to cruising with our wives. This boat has everything you could want and more! And their location is perfect in The Island Fish Company Marina, just around the corner from Vaca Cut. The guys we dealt with there, Jeff and Ray were very knowledgeable about the area and were professional. Thanks for a great time - we will be back next year and will highly recommend you to friends of ours that are heading down in May!
