About Sunset Boat Rental (Now a Pirate Monkey Boating company)

At Pirate Monkey Boating we believe in adventure for everyone, whether you’re a local, familiar with our pristine waters, or a visitor, eager to explore our nook of Florida coastline. We strive to make your day on the water a smooth process so the only surprises you encounter are fun. “Don’t just rent, adventure” is more than our tagline. Our entire crew embodies this passion, from our experienced dockhands, to our owners—a Special Ops veteran and his diabolical writer wife. When our clients return to the dock, sun-drenched and delighted, we’re reminded why we love what we do. We share in the adventure too.

Sunset Boat Rental is a marina based boat rental company located on the Manatee River. We offer deck boat and pontoon rentals with the least restrictions, and pride ourselves on a well-maintained fleet.
