Water Sports: Siesta Key

Adventure-seeking visitors to Siesta Key don't have to look far beyond the beach for an adrenaline rush

If soaking up sun, surf and sand aren't your idea of spending a visit to the best beach in the U.S., don't worry. You can hop on a jet ski, go parasailing, wrangle a boogie board, and even bring the whole family out on a boat. It's time to get a different view of Siesta Key – from the water!

CB's Saltwater Outfitters

CB's Saltwater Outfitters is a Siesta Key bait and tackle shop offering up fishing charters and boat & jet ski rentals.


Jet ski rentals are available by the hour and boat rentals are available by the half day (four hours) or the whole day (nine hours from 8 a.m.-5 p.m.). Rentals include pontoons, deck boats, center consoles and runabouts, with half day prices ranging from $169-$339 and full day prices ranging from $279-$449 depending on boat size.

Jet skis and boats can be taken out right from CB's Siesta Key location near the Stickney Point Bridge.

Whether you choose to fly, ski, paddle, boat or even just splash around, you'll enjoy the view out on the water on beautiful Siesta Key Beach.

Charter Fishing:

CB's offers an array of chartered fishing experiences – recommended if you want to make sure your fishing turns to "catching."
