Three Generations Family Owned and Operated
Bonita Boat Rentals has been our family business for over 35 years. We have the best access to Estero Bay, flexible rental hours and offer fishing gear, bait and ice. We make it easy to “Be Your Own Captain” on one of our clean, comfortable 22 foot pontoon boats. We offer rentals from 2-8 hours and you can pick your start time (based on availability of course.) Explore the best of Southwest Florida, including the waters of Fort Myers Beach and North Naples. Our great location offers access to over 35 miles of the Intracoastal Waterway for a variety of boating trips, including Estero Bay, Big Hickory Bay, Fish Trap Bay, the Imperial River, the Estero River and Spring Creek. Only minutes to the north awaits Estero Bay, which has the unique privilege of being Florida’s first aquatic preserve, dedicated in 1966. Estero Bay is home to over 40% of the state’s threatened and endangered species.
Experience One of Florida’s Most Productive Estuaries
Surrounded by massive red mangrove forests on the north end of Estero Bay, Big Carlos Pass offers beach access to Lovers Key State Park. Our local beaches are ranked in the top 10 nationally. Dog Beach is a popular destination for those with pets. Most of our customers tell us they saw bottlenose dolphins on their trip. We have a healthy population of Florida’s most graceful marine mammal: the Florida manatee. Numerous species of birds call Southwest Florida home, including egrets, herons, ibis, pelicans, ospreys, rosette spoonbills and even the patriotic bald eagle.
