Boynton Beach Boat Rentals provides the means to enjoy all that the area's waterways have to offer.

As South Florida's home-brew supply depot, BX assists brew masters and novices alike in their fermenting endeavors. Brewing classes lecture lager lovers and ale admirers in the fundamentals of batch brewing, providing a run down of everything from ingredients and equipment to technique and bottling, and the beer experts will brew a batch on site so suds-savoring students can easily follow along. Classes can accommodate up to 30 people, increasing the chances that singles mingling around the wort cauldron may bump into their fated stout mate or start up a bromance with a fellow hops enthusiast. Both relationships can be explored further at the group-brewing session, held immediately after the class, where local home brewers and beer worshipers meet up to socialize and discuss all things grain related.
Beneath the tall palm trees that dot Amelia's SmartyPlants' outdoor garden lies a vast stock of lush plants and vibrant blooms handpicked by an expert staff. The 2-acre independent gardening center amasses plant species both familiar and unusual, helping homeowners beautify their yards and the environment with native florals, ornamental shrubs and trees, and colorful glass garden art that adds color and whimsy to natural plots.

An indoor shopping area also awaits to show off shelves stocked with tools and garden accessories––many made in the United States—such as fountains and statues, all waiting to add interest to landscapes or the miniature dioramas of middle-school giants.
Big Wave Dave Surf Co.'s staff of experienced wave riders hits the shores of Waikiki Beach for private and small-group lessons in surfing, standup paddleboarding, and outrigger canoeing.

During classes, first-time surfers learn the basics on land before heading into the warm waters to hang their first 10, whereas advanced riders barrel out into the waves atop fiberglass and epoxy boards. Outrigger canoes recall ancient Hawaiians' exploration of Oahu's colorful reefs, and standup paddleboards combine an intense workout with clear views of the pristine waters below. The shop also offers daily and long-term rentals of equipment, with complimentary delivery and pickup from local hotels.
