Awesome, the best word to describe our morning on board of Capt. Kevin Wessel boat. The Intercoastal and The Gulf trip was amazing, we caught a lot of fish and one special Barrucada. He was professional, fun, and his boat is very good and comfortable. I would Highly recommend him!

We got a charter last summer on our trip to Sarasota and boy did we luck out. Captain Kevin was extremely knowledgeable and knew exactly where we needed to be to catch some great fish. I've never been much for fishing and thought we should go as a group for it to be more fun. Captain Kevin was able to... More

The entire staff at CB's did a fantastic job of helping us select the perfect rental boat for our day trip on the water. The prices were excellent, all of the boats were clean and ran perfect. They went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed along with the making the rental process short and simple... More

Stopped here to pick up some supplies before heading out to fish. We did not rent our boat from here, but certainly didn't see a reason not to. Great selection of apparel and gear at very fair prices. Employees were helpful and not pushy. Will return for sure.

We have been coming to CB's for years. They are always helpful and knowledgeable about the fishing, and can recommend good charters, or rent you a boat. Their shrimp are fresh and last a long time in the bait bucket, if you keep if deep enough. Prices are fair.

I am happy to join the chorus of "Excellent" reviews. CB's is a class operation. We rented a nice 19-footer that was like new and the staff was very friendly and professional at the front end and checking out. The boat was very comfortable with an open bow and bench seating all around. It helped that it was a sparkling... More

We rented a 25 foot pontoon boat for 4 hours. The boat was for 6 adults, there was plenty of room. The boat was in excellent condition, the service at CB's was great and we all had a great time. I'd certainly recommend them to a friend, or all of tripadvisor!

We rented a boat yesterday from CB's and it was a smooth process. We had someone inspect it before taking off. We were able to do a 6 hour rental, which gave us plenty of time to enjoy the area, down to Venice. We putted around the mangroves, looking at various species of birds. We docked and dined for lunch... More

They don't come better than Bruce!! What a guy! My 8 year old son had never fished off a boat and hadn't had success off a pier yet, either! He caught 15 fish!!! Bruce has been with CB's since 2001 and he knows exactly where to go to find fish. My son was reeling those fish in as quickly as... More
