Boat rentals and yacht charters to Beer Can Island
Beer Can Island is a locally famous boating destination, smack dab in the middle of the bay. If you're renting a yacht from downtown Tampa or St. Petersburg, Beer Can Island is a perfect destination only requiring a 4 hour (half-day) rental. If you want to stay at the island longer, we also offer 6 hour and 8 hour trips. The water may not be crystal clear, but this is the most popular party spot for boats for a reason. Hundreds of boats and yachts gather here every weekend for shenanigans and debauchery.
Boat rentals and yacht charters to Egmont Key
Egmont Key is a popular boating destination with beautifully clear / turquoise water. Egmont Key is located south of St. Pete, so if your boat or yacht is departing from Tampa Bay, you'll need to book a minimum of a 6 hour charter, or save money with the discounted full-day yacht charter options.
Boat rentals and yacht charters to Johns Pass Sandbar
Johns Pass is located a bit further south and is a great local meet up location for boaters. If you've chartered a boat or yacht from downtown Tampa, you'll want to be sure to book a 6 hour rental or 8 hour rental to ensure you have enough time to get there. Johns Pass is a really fun local sandbar where boaters party 7 days a week. Mostly on Saturdays and Sundays.
Weather in Tampa Bay
Always keep in mind the weather when planning your yacht rental experience. Tampa Bay is an ideal location for a yacht charter, either while on vacation or “staycation” because of the wonderful weather patterns. With winters ranging in the 70°s and summers in the 90's, there's no wrong time to visit. While it may rain frequently in Tampa Bay, the storms are almost always scattered and very short in duration, often times only lasting a few minutes and then the sun is shining again. If you're traveling to Tampa Bay in the cooler months of the year, be sure to pack some layers to wear while on your boating trip, especially if you plan to go yachting in the evening. If you're traveling during the summer months, remember to stay hydrated and take some extra precautions when it comes to sun care.
When planning to rent a yacht in Tampa Bay, your Captain will keep an eye on the weather patterns. The Captain will warn you of any weather that could cause your yacht charter to be cancelled, rescheduled, or departure time pushed back. Safety is always our top priority.
