Rentals & Transportation

Get around town at your convenience with a bike rental. Men’s and women’s bikes are available at $12 per day ($60 per week). Kids can also get in on the fun. Brightly-colored bikes in pink or green are available for $10 per day. These rentals come with a coaster brake for smooth stopping, double-guard chain guard for added suspension, padded handlebars, and oversized steel frame and training wheels. Parents with small children may choose to rent a trailer, which easily hooks up to any bike, so their tots can tag along. Couples may also enjoy a tandem bike, a stylish ride for two, costing only $19 per day. 

Gulf carts are also available for rent. Choose from 4, 6, or 8-passenger vehicles. Carts reach up to 25 miles per hour and are street legal. Choose between gas or electric Golf carts.

Fishing Charters

Anna Maria Island fishing charter

Anna Maria Island offers many great fishing opportunities, and you’re almost certain to get a catch. Fishing off Florida’s west coast, you’re likely to find gag grouper, red snapper, snook, tarpon, tripletail, yellowtail snapper, and speckled trout among others.

Private fishing charters are available for 4 hours ($500), 6 hours ($650), or 8 hours ($1500). An experienced captain will take you inshore to the Intracoastal waterways of Sarasota and Tampa Bay, where you will fish among grass flats and mangrove islands for redfish, snook, and trout. Who knows? You may catch a lot more than you bargained for; there are plenty of other species to be found!

On these charter trips, you’ll want to bring your own snacks and drinks, but tackle, rod and reels, bait, and licensing are all included in the charter price. The whole family can join; experienced and novice fishers alike are welcome! 

Four-hour group fishing trips head our daily mornings and afternoons. The tour includes rods, license and fishing gear with live bait available at an additional charge. These group trips are family-friendly, so bring grandparents, parents, and kids! Call 941-822-3351 to check the next day’s availability. 

Boat Charters

Boats on the water

There’s just nothing like being out on the water. If you can’t get enough of the sea, consider booking a private boat charter. Two and four-hour charters are available for up to six people. You can sightsee, sandbar hop, snorkel, fish, or simply enjoy being at sea. A two-hour sunset tour is also available, which starts two hours prior to sunset. A maximum of 18 are allowed per tour. Costs start at $298.50 for the first six people and an additional $35 per person after that. You are welcome to bring snacks and beverages on the tour.

Egmont Key is a popular place for boaters. It’s the perfect place to go snorkeling, relax on the beach, and go swimming. The area also has a rich history. It has long been a U.S. military outpost, and during the Spanish American War, numerous formidable defenses were constructed. The ruins of these fortifications can be seen crumbling on the shoreline today. 

Kayak/Paddleboard Eco Tour
