About Us

Awaiting you when you arrive in Siesta Key is an absolute blast of fun. Now you can arrange to have the Black Pearl pontoon boats at your disposal if you are staying at any of the Cottages Vacation Homes. For all properties, you can reserve the boat for one day, or for waterfront properties we also offer three or six consecutive days at your dock [Please note: longer rentals on your dock require a Sunday or Wednesday start day]. All rentals begin around 9 a.m. on boat delivery and end at 5:30 p.m. on the last day of your selected dates.

You are free to use the Black Pearls anywhere in the canal systems and waterway/inshore areas (not allowed in Gulf of Mexico). User costs are $425 for a one-day, all-inclusive rental, $695 – three-day and $1,195 – six-day rentals (Note: all multi-day rates are plus tax and fuel).

A single day, all-inclusive Siesta Key pontoon rental starts at your waterfront cottage dock or at Bay Park [946 Siesta Drive] if you’re in a cottage off the canal system. One-day pontoon rentals are delivered and picked up the same day – No refueling required. Compare if you like and you’ll see the great value here.

The Black Pearl and her sister boat are new luxurious 2017 24’ Bentley Pontoon boats w/115 HP Yamaha 4-stroke engines with ample couch-style seating for the maximum occupancy number of 12-16 persons. Each is fully-equipped with all USCG required safety equipment, life jackets (child preservers available), coolers, maps, GPS (very simple to use), full tank of gas/oil – essentially ready to go when you are, just like a rental car.

If you’ve had even a tiny bit of experience with outboard motor boats, the Black Pearl pontoon boat is amazingly easy for you as your own Captain. The color GPS sets a track line indicating where you have been so getting back is easy. It also shows you exactly where you are at all times on a color map and where you need to go to get to your desired destination. Makes it all so simple.

The Black Pearl will get you, your family, and guests safely to sandy beaches or islands, dolphin areas, waterside restaurants, and marinas, etc. – places in Siesta Key you would most likely never see otherwise. Built-in ladder, Bluetooth stereo system, built-in cooler, and a privacy area are on board. A 10’ Bimini canvas top keeps you shaded while you’re exploring or anchored. And you’ll definitely see Sarasota from a completely new perspective.

Everything you need is on board: Maps, instructions, rules of the road, safety equipment, locations of sights to see, and waterfront restaurants, etc. All you need is an adventurous spirit, tee shirts, flip flops, bathing suit, munchies, drinks, sunglasses, and a smile. Larry personally reviews all the features, operation, and recommended day trips to you on delivery to ensure your complete comfort with your Sarasota pontoon rental before proceeding.
