Crystal River is one of the best places in Central Florida for a boating excursion. Whether you’d like to just drift along lazily, paddle at pace from shore to shore, cast up sails or cruise around in a power boat, there are more than 25,000 acres of water for you to explore as you wish. And with a pontoon boat, you can breeze through Kings Bay — the home of more than 41 springs including Three Sisters Springs — and enjoy a great day of swimming, sightseeing, fishing, snorkeling or relaxing. And of course, with the Bay hosting 400-600 Florida manatees in the winter and as many as 50-70 manatees in the summer, you’ll also have the opportunity to enjoy a delightful time with these cool creatures.

Renting a pontoon boat

So would you like to explore Crystal River in a steady, safe and comfortable pontoon boat? At Captain Mike’s, we are committed to making sure that your swim or eco tour delivers as much fun and joy as possible. We are a tour, adventure and dive center offering a wide variety of rental pontoon boats, canoes, kayaks, Jon boats and chartered trips. With a waterfront location that makes us strategically positioned to access most of the beautiful boating locations in Florida, we guarantee that you will find your way easily through the springs regardless of your level of boating experience. And because we are truly committed to customer satisfaction, we never disappoint. Our pontoon boat rentals are available 7 days a week.

What type of pontoon boats do we provide?

We have a wide range of pontoon boats to serve different customer needs. For instance, our 20-foot-long passenger boat accommodates 10 people. It is the one most commonly used for group tours and comes with a Bimini top to allow users to get out of the sun if they need to do so. The boats have padded seats and are some of the nicest in Crystal River. We also have larger pontoon boats that we provide to customers upon request, including a 15-passenger and a 17-passenger boat if needed.

Great prices for boat rentals

At Captain Mike’s, we offer the most competitive boat rental rates in Crystal River, whether you need the boat for an hour, half-day, full-day or multiple days. For example, if you need a boat for 1-2 hours during the weekdays you are charged $68.60 and $111 during weekends. For 2-4 hours, we charge $111 during weekdays and $153.40 during the weekends. And if you are renting the boat for 4-8 hours, we charge $153.40 for weekday trips and $195.80 for weekend trips. There are no hidden fees in our prices and you pay what you see. But if a customer wishes to get into the water with the manatees, we insist that they wear wetsuits of a minimum 3mm thickness — you can rent one of ours or bring your own.

We are dedicated to delivering the best nature encounters for our visitors in the most convenient, safest and sustainable way. And we thrive off our unquenchable desire to educate our clients and inspire an inner love for nature. So as you rent one of our pontoon boats, we trust that you will have an interesting, fun and awesome experience with it.
