H2O is dedicated to making each experience with us one to remember. All of our staff is friendly and knowledgeable. H2O has rentals, tours & charters. We are always changing things up so check in with us regularly for offers. Our most popular experience is the 4 hour guided tour; private boat with captain! H2O offers the largest riding area spanning from Tampa Bay to Sarasota Bay. Come early because we do lots of orientation before leaving for your expedition! Be prepared with ID & Credit Card which is required with every rental. Florida law requires all operators to have an ID on the water at all times so don't come without yours. We give the FWC Boater's Certification on site for those born after Jan. 1st of 1988. Just stop in with your ID to get your certification. We look forward to doing business with you all.

This place is awesome! I love the owners Chris and Blossom and have known them for years. Their crew Includes Capt. Phillip who I've watched grow from a mate all the way to a trusted sea captain. Then there is Andrew with his years of experience. He is one of the best mates I know and takes superb care of... More

Spent 2 days fishing with reel Cortez charters! Best fishing we have ever had! Both the captain and the mate were 100% professional and could not do enough for us. I highly recommend you use these guys if you want to really enjoy the day.

My family rented two wave runners and were very pleased to see that they could go out by themselves. The staff were extremely efficient and safety conscious. So nice to go somewhere where it wasn't wildly expensive and the people were so friendly. Because of that, my husband and son returned again and enjoyed a second visit. Lovely people and... More

First let me say we had a great time. The water was beautiful. It was a sunny but not horribly hot day. The captain and mate had it all down. Great gear and very experienced fishermen. It was all great except we could find no decent sized fish. Not because Captain Phil did not try... We just didn't find them.... More

Used H2O a couple of years ago to hire a jetski, went back again this year on our latest trip to Longboat Key. The people who run this company are both friendly and helpful, the jetski hire was really good value for the two hour session. Managed to see Manatee's and Dolphins whilst out in the channel.

The entire staff of H2O watersports was fantastic, helpful and extremely friendly when we rented 2 jetskis on our recent visit to AnnaMaria Island. We have been vacationing on AMI for over 7 years and this is by far, the best rental experience we have had. Highly recommended to add to your package of fun and enjoyment on what I... More

Usually use other Wave runner companies whilst down in Anna Maria. Found this place by accident.This is one of the few that allow you to go out to the Gulf on your own. Others restrict you or come out with you. We booked on the website and when we arrived they were expecting us. We went through the normal paperwork... More

Wouldn't hesitate recommending Reel Cortez for a family fishing trip. Very friendly staff - Blossom and I had lots of email and phone exchanges as we needed to change our dates due to weather. This was not a problem - I'm not sure anything would be 😀 My kids loved the fishing and feeding the Pelicans with the off cuts... More
