On this page I just want to feature several house boats from the Keys. There are so many down there... Including entire communities with them.
There are houseboats that are flat bottomed which are not really
made to go exploring and then there are pontoon house boats which you
can actually get out and adventure a bit in.
There's a place called Houseboat Vacations of the Florida Keys in Islamorada. They have a nice set of pontoon style houseboats you can rent in a few different sizes. A perfect way to “try before you buy.”
One of the benefits of renting from them is that
they will offer you a other boats to cruise around in for really great
prices. As I skim through their site right now you can get a 20' Mako
for just $125 per day when you rent a houseboat as well.
While you are there you can explore some of the houseboat living communities in the area to see how you like it.
To learn more about these boats, visit Houseboat Vacations of the Florida Keys' website. Link opens in a new window.
