Member Testimonials

My wife and I have been members since April 2012 and our boating experience has been outstanding. We usually hit the waves cruising at least one day a week. Thanks to the quality of service, cleanliness, and reliability of the equipment, we have nothing but favorable compliments. With a selection of four Marinas and 30 boats, exploring the beautiful Sarasota area waterways plus easy access to the Gulf of Mexico gives boaters options for varied experiences. All the fun and joy of boating with no ownership costs and hassles. Sign, get the keys, and floating away you go. Experiences include sailing, water sports, fishing, and kayaking, with opportunities to observe spectacular marine wildlife. Boating enthusiasts can meet and mingle at club social events. A very good value providing memorable enjoyment. We highly recommend membership in the Waves Boat & Social Club to everyone.

I have been a member with Waves for over 2 years now and my whole family (dog included) absolutely LOVE IT! Joining Waves actually changed our lives...there is nothing my family loves more than spending the day out on the water. The best part...I don't have to pay for dockage...I don't have to pay for insurance...I don't have to pay for maintenance...and best of all...I DON"T HAVE TO CLEAN THE BOAT!

I have been a member of Waves since they opened. They are a top notch organization!!!

We are new fairly new members, but the experience thus far has been outstanding!! The flexibility of multiple locations/boat types is great and the staff is wonderful to deal with. Would highly recommend joining!

I have been a member of Waves for a year. I really like that they have four locations which gives access to bays and Gulf from Tampa Bay to Lemon Bay. You can reserve a variety of boats. The Harbor Masters are friendly and efficient. This is a very well run organization.

BTW - Love you guys! :) Every time,.. and I mean EVERY TIME I ask my 22 month old where we wants to go,.. as we get in the car,.. he shouts "BOAT!" :) Then he makes motor noises and yells; "splash!" ~Best, Wes

I would like to express how pleased I am to be a member of Waves Boat & Social Club. On several occassions recently, I had the opportunity to take some time off work and was able to call and get a boat for the same day or the next day. I was able to leave work, stop and pick up my gear and enjoy a few hours of boating. As a previous boat owner, I know I would not have been able to just “pick up and go” but would have had to spend time getting my boat to the water, make sure it had fuel or stop and get some, etc. The boat club gives me the chance to get out on the water and relax more often. I also wanted to let you know I think you have a great staff. The dockmaster, Chris, is always polite, friendly, helpful and very thorough when going through the check list. It gives me the comfort of knowing everything is in its place and works properly and that the Club is very safety conscious. Scott and Lu are always pleasant and helpful over the phone and go the “extra mile” for the members.

Congratulations to a great team,

Jim Spencer

We just moved to Sarasota in Aug., 2012. Our neighbor told us about Waves and we joined right away. New to boating, Waves gave us as many hands-on lessons as we needed for my wife & I to be comfortable to go out by ourselves for no additional charge, as it was included in our membership. We had considered buying a boat before we found out about Waves, but we would pay considerably more money owning our boat to pay for storage, registration, insurance, maintenance, etc. as these are all included in our membership. ~B&M

Waves provides very well kept boats (and a nice variety), friendly staff and fun social events. Waves also has very nice members. It is a great way to meet new friends. Highly recommended!!!

Just wanted to let you know that we had a great morning of fishing inside near Lido Key. Everything was great. Nothing to eat but we caught a variety of fish and had a blast.

We haven't been boating for a while but went out on the red pontoon boat yesterday. We had a delightful time. I just want to tell you how happy we are as members. We really appreciate you letting us take our dogs onboard. We treat your boats like they are ours and bring them back clean and ready for the next member to use. Thanks again for opening this great business. It brings a lot of pleasure to many people. ~Gwen McKenna (Joined 07/25/09)

Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed using the kayaks yesterday and think this is a great new addition to the Waves "fleet". We probably were the first to use them as we took off price tags... ~B.B.

What a great time we all had on your Waves boat! I will certainly send people your way. Best Wishes ~Martyn

We love the club... joined 2009. ~Davis
