Our phone is not working through Magic Jack.  Call Capt. Stu on his cell at 941-278-6447!  Looking for a boat rental near Englewood, Florida?  We have expanded to two locations to serve our boat rental customers.  On Manasota Key at Englewood Yacht Club and just one bridge over from Gasparilla Island in Placida, Florida. If you want a boat delivered to the Chadwick Cove or Lemon Bay area in Englewood area, that is no problem.  Be careful where you rent a boat in Southwest Florida.  Always ask if rescue is available if your boat were to become disabled. Captain Stu oversees each and every one of his boat rentals and is always available in case your boat should run aground, run out of fuel or if you need him for any reason.    

Our Placida location gives our customers quick and easy access to the Gulf of Mexico through Gasparilla Pass. We service all areas around Boca Grande, Placida, Little Gasparilla Island up to Manasota Key. To pick up a boat rental in Englewood, we will meet you just across the street from Englewood Beach at Chadwick Park or at your private dock. Parking for boat tours or boat rentals is plentiful there between SandbarTiki Grille and the White Elephant Pub. Our boat rentals are available for daily, weekly and monthly use.  Another pick up point for your rental boat is at 7080 Placida Rd. in Placida.  This location is right beside Leverock's Restaurant and will give you quick and easy access to Stump Pass Beach State Park and Don Pedro State Park.  

Folks will find our Placida locations very convenient. This area allows very quick and easy boating access to all the great areas around Boca Grande, Gasparilla Island State Park, Palm Island, and Don Pedro State Park along with many others.  Little Gasparilla is a very unique island and the only way to get over there is by boat or car ferry. We can also deliver your boat rental to Little Gasparilla Island right to your dock. Most vacationers that visit Gasparilla Island or Little Gasparilla islands prefer to get around by golf cart.  With your rental boat, you can cruise up to Manasota Key and have a meal at either The White Elephant Pub or Flounder's Tiki Bar or just cruise along the many mangroves channels looking for manatees. You can take our rental boats down to Cabbage Key and Cayo Costa to explore an unspoiled paradise and then have a good meal on the private island of Cabbage Key.  The wildlife is utterly amazing in Southwest Florida and our skiff boat rentals cruise effortlessly thru the mangroves, salt flats and shallow channels. You can pull them right up on the beaches to go shelling and swimming. Captiva Island is another island within reach for early risers as is Matlacha beside Pine Island. 

We offer two great options for boat tours if you don't want to be the captain!  You can also do a full day tour on the pontoon boat from Boca Grande or we can pick your group up at any dock.  From Placida,FL, it's easy to cruise around Boca Grande, or to head south down to Cabbage Key and Cayo Costa State Park.  Alternatively, we can sail north up to Don Pedro Island, Little Gasparilla Island, and to Stump Pass Beach State park located on Manasota Key in Englewood, FL. Stump Pass Beach is our favorite spot to anchor, go shelling, catch some rays and swim in the blue green waters of the Gulf.  

If you are interested in booking a yacht charter with Captain Stu, check out our 45 foot Carver yacht for a half or a full day tour.  If you charter the yacht and are living or staying in Charlotte County, we offer free limousine service for ten people to and from the vessel. Here's a link to our main website.  Gulf Island Tours and Gasparilla Island Boat Rentals have the same owner.  We don't want folks getting confused but indeed, Gulf Island Tours now also owns Gasparilla Island Boat Rentals which has nothing to do with Chadwick Cove Resort and Marina (and as of January 2017.)  We've moved to better serve our customers as far as boat rentals, yacht charters and pontoon boat tours.  From our new centralized location, it is easy to tour and see more places in a day because it is located centrally to all the islands we cruise to.  Be sure to check out our map and you will get a good idea of all the islands you can see.    

Our boat rentals are perfect for your next vacation near Little Gasparilla Island Florida!  We have several great options for you to choose from. Check out our three Carolina skiff rental boats, or our three comfortable deck boats along with our double decker 30 foot pontoon party boat. Two of the Carolina Skiffs are 19 feet long by six feet wide with very comfortable bow cushions for sunbathers. Our Sundance Skiff is 20 feet in length by seven feet wide and has a huge bimini top for shade from the Florida sun. Our two smaller rental boats are a 17 foot Carolina Skiff which is great for fishing with smaller groups along with a catamaran style skiff, which has a great sound system and is the newest boat in our fleet as of 2018.  All of our skiffs are designed to run in shallow waters, are easy to maneuver, and you can pull right up on the beaches. All of the deck boats are fairly new additions to our fleet and are rated for 12 people. You can also rent our 30 foot double decker pontoon boat though we prefer an experienced boater for this boat due to it's size.  Large groups love our double decker pontoon boat complete with shaded areas, a small kitchen along with a grill and a bathroom. This boat is Coast Guard rated for 12 people.  Whatever your needs are that are "boat related" Gasparilla Island Boat Rentals has you covered!  

There are so many pristine "spoil islands" that simply cannot be enjoyed without a boat.  Don't confine yourself, your family and friends to one beach or one island when you can visit so many on your next Southwest Florida vacation.  There are many un-named islands up in the mangroves around Don Pedro and Palm Islands, which are between Little Gasparilla Island and Boca Grande to explore.  All of our boat rentals feature bimini tops and can be rented daily, weekly and monthly.  If staying in the area and you have a dock, call us and we will deliver your rental boat to you at no extra charge.  

In our opinion, the only way to truly enjoy Boca Grande, Manasota Key, Gasparilla and Little Gasparilla island is by boat. Come and enjoy the exotic birds, the huge manatees and of course, plan on seeing lots of dolphins around the inlets. If you don't have boating experience, you can have a private tour guide for a half or full day to show you all around Little Gasparilla, Stump Pass Beach down to Boca Grande, Cabbage Key and Cayo Costa State Park.
