I am not one who usually writes reviews. However, big daddy’s gets 5 stars all day long. If you are looking for a boat rental, look no further. Eric runs a class act operation. His communication from start to finish is spot on. The rates are competitive, and the boats are clean and in great working order. Do yourself a favor and book this right now, you won’t regret it. I can’t say enough good about our families experience. Thank you Eric!

I would look no further for a boat to rent. After the fourth of July’21 I rented a pontoon from Eric, (Big Daddy’s) for four days at Siesta Key. The rental process was simple and easy. He even delivered the boat to the house we rented on the canal. He provided local information and the boat ran flawlessly. He was very attentive and stayed in touch and kept us informed as a tropical storm passed through. He picked the boat up when we were finished which made our vacation even more enjoyable. I highly recommend his service and will rent from Big Daddy again!
