Fun Rentals leases motorized excitement with four-hour scooter and ScootCoupe rentals, encouraging joy riders to explore beach and street alike in an expedient fuel-efficient cruiser. Like a domesticated velociraptor, the two-seater scooter is small, speedy, easy to park, and lasts all day on one dollar of gas. With a ScootCoupe rental, driver and passenger can sit side-by-side in the stylish three-wheeler as they jet about town at up to 40 miles per hour. The coupes are iPod–ready, allowing tech-toting motorists to roll to the sounds of classic rock or an audio-book biography of Millard Fillmore.
Insider tips on tidal patterns and secret surf spots, borne of a lifetime in local waters, are part of the intangible edge offered by Singer Island Surf Camp Inc., in operation for the past 15 years and run by a born-and-raised native of Palm Beach. As a Palm Beach County native, camp founder and owner Paige Parker doesn’t remember a time she wasn’t closely tied to the water. When she and her neighborhood pals were kids, she recalls, “The ocean was our playground and our babysitter.” And though it's probably true that anyone with a lifeguard certification could lead snorkeling tours and sportfishing charters, Parker knows that her inborn understanding of the local tidal patterns makes a difference.
A staff of surf-seasoned EMTs and firefighters who are also certified in ocean rescue, lifeguard, CPR, and first aid help Parker lead private and group surfing lessons for all ages and experience levels as well as provide paddleboarding and kayaking instruction. And when school’s out, kids aged 6–16 years old can dive into summer camps and surf along Singer Island's reef-and-sandbar system or paddleboard to Peanut Island. A full rental shop, meanwhile, fills out its stock of standard surf gear with standup paddleboards, kayaks, water trampolines, and inflatable water wheels.
Armed with certification from the United States Cycling Federation, the bike mechanics at Atlantic Bicycle keep two-wheeled roadsters running safely and efficiently with maintenance services and help customers to select new bikes or gear. The experienced crew can perform basic services such as tuning up bicycles for warm-weather riding or more complex work such as fitting wheels with hand-laced custom wheels built onsite. The shop also keeps an extensive inventory of bicycles to meet needs ranging from everyday commutes to grocery-store-aisle wheelies, including all-mountain, urban, and recumbent styles as well as adult tricycles.
The certified professional mechanics of B & J Bicycle Shop, Inc., in business since 1985, put cyclists on the road, trail, or mountain atop bikes from names such as Giant, MirraCo, and Trek. Staffers assemble, tune, and test each steed onsite, and can custom-fit components for rider comfort. To keep up on cycling trends and tech, crew members train with factory service technicians several times per year, ensuring up-to-date knowledge guides all maintenance services and ride-smoothing tune-ups. The shop also stocks a selection of gear and accessories, preventing riders from having to craft protective gear out of bubble wrap.
Without a boat, it's hard to water-ski, snorkel, or arrive at a waterfront restaurant in style. Luckily, for people who don't own a personal watercraft, Best Boat Club and Rentals has been renting out a fleet of well-maintained vessels for almost two decades. At locations in Fort Lauderdale, Pompano Beach, and Captiva Island, the company outfits aspiring boaters with everything they'll need for a day on the waves. With their "Water Limo" service, they even furnish guests with a driver, so they can devote their time on the boat more fully to looking for its gills. However, if clients want to improve their skills at the helm, the company's team has them covered there, too, with hands-on powerboat training and a sailing school.
There’s no wrong way to experience a city. That’s why the team at M. Cruz Bicycle Rentals & Segway Tours grants visitors a variety of ways to explore Fort Lauderdale and the scenic landscape of Hugh Taylor Birch State Park. Whether cruising around on a Segway HT during a guided tour, biking along the beach, or rollerblading down the sidewalk, clients can bask in the preserved beauty of the state park as they catch glimpses of houses and yachts owned by celebrities. The team can accommodate any beach adventure guests desire, whether by supplying canoes, attaching toddler-sized bikes to the back of parents’ rentals, or renting out beach chairs to contractors hired to see where the sun goes at night.
