Are there any powerboats available for rent in San Pedro, without guides? Something like a 17 foot skiff we could rent for a week and keep tied up at our hotel. We have always done this in the Exumas and love having a boat at our disposal. I am a USCG licensed captain BTW. Ran my own charter boat out of Savannah Georgia for 10 years.
LARRY IVE LOOKED ALL OVER THE INTERNET AND CANNOT FIND A BOAT FOR RENT EITHER. THE NEXT BEST THING IS TO RENT A SEA KAYAK . EASY TO HANDLE,GREAT FOR THE FLATS AND SKINNY WATER. GET A TWO MAN AND HAVE A GREAT TIME.
Mr. Jesse, respectfully, "definitely" is painting with a wide brush. I grew up running boats around uncharted reefs and shoals. Been doing it 40 years. My license says "100 Ton Master, All Oceans" with Sail, Towboat, and Radar endorsements. I can run a skiff around AC, or anywhere else without incident.
Of course, I would still hire a guide for a day or two, for the local knowledge and the interaction. The local flavor and interacting with the people is the best part of traveling.
But having a boat at your disposal would be a major convenience. Thanks, I'll keep looking.
Mr. Blue, yeah the kayak is OK, for sure. Great for snorkeling. As long as the wind isn't too strong, you don't have too far to go, and you don't want to keep anything dry. We're staying at the Xanadu and they provide kayaks. Might have to be satisfied with that. Stroke, stroke, stroke, stroke...........
