    AVAILABLE UNDER STAY-AT-HOME ORDER! Bennington Pontoon 22" in Cape Coral

    George and Martin were very nice and quick to answer any questions. The boat was in good and working order. We had no issues with it all week. We will be back and I know for sure we will be renting from them again. One very nice thing was the drop off and pick up right at our dock. that was so very helpful.

    Fishing Boat for rent SWFL out of Punta Rassa boat ramp

    Boat was just as described and perfect for fishing with our family of four. Matt was quick to respond as we planned our trip as well as the day of when the local bait shop was unable to get in their morning supply due to an accident. Matt gave us some great fishing spots where we did catch a lot of fish. The boat has a navigation system that was so helpful while navigating some of the shallower waters.

    George was great to work with and the boat is awesome! We've rented boats in many different places and George's boat is top-notch, in perfect condition. George made it very easy on both the check-in and check-out, and was flexible with our timing. He also gave recommendations of where we should go. We'll rent from George next time we visit!

    AVAILABLE DURING STAY-AT-HOME ORDER! SunTracker Pontoon Boat Rental in Cape Coral, Florida

    This was my first getmyboat experience. We go on rental ponoon boats often and we also rent vacation homes often and we also use Turo for renting cars. We are finding that we are getting much more value for money and success with private party rentals. George is no exception. He communicates effectively and is anxious to make things work. The boat was better than expected we had a great time.
