About Crescent Watersports
Our Company , Crescent Watersports, was founded on the waterways of Palm Coast FL. Our Mission is to provide our customers the easiest way to access a first class fleet of boats without the maintenance of owning a boat .
As someone who grew up with salt water in my veins, it is my passion to get people on the water in a safe and educated way. Many of my best memories involve being on the water with my family, knee boarding after school or learning to fish from my Grandfather.
After having a successful career in the food and beverage industry and a successful boat dealership in Charleston SC, we started Crescent Watersports. We want to bring the love of the water to each and every customer. We moved to Palm Coast to assist with my mother-in-law who is suffering from Alzheimer’s. We started “Alzheimers on the Water” a program that takes families affected by this disease on the water for free boat rides.
The need was quickly noticed for a boat rental company who takes pride in their equipment and offers amazing customer service. That is our goal. The moment you contact us we respond with phone call or email to plan your day. Once you book your adventure, a confirmation email is sent with link to launch and other details. If you have a boaters license in any state, it is transferable. If not it is required and free to take a 20 minute course that we send you , this is your boater license “for the day.” Our fleet is well maintained, cleaned and sanitized and always up to date with coast guard regulations.
At Launch Captain takes time to educate you on navigation, safety equipment and much more. We monitor the weather while you are on the water and stay in communication if need be to direct you away from any potential danger. Our clients experience the confidence to rent a vessel from us over and over.
We are also on a mission to modernize the boat club model by providing our CW members the lowest member to boat ratio in the industry, lower fees, higher standards for our fleet, access to complimentary water sports equipment and unrivaled customer service that you will notice right away from the phone to the docks and on our boats. We will have a great boat prepared for your arrival, a Yeti cooler with ice, complimentary sunscreen, watersports equipment and more if you desire.
Simply book your experience with Crescent Watersports whether it is a rental for the day or joining our Executive Boat Club. We take care of everything, including cleaning the vessel and refilling the vessel with fuel. You focus on one thing, making memories and having a great time on the water so forget all of your worries and enjoy your water adventure!!

Phenomenal day on the water with Crescent WaterSports and Captain Dru!! A truly memorable experience with AMAZING things to see and do: all the best fishing holes, swimming spots, sites to see, dolphins, baby dolphins, sea turtles, birds of pray, the list goes on!! Captain Dru made a huge impact on my family… a class act and a truly nice human being!! We will plan our next visit to the Palm Coast of Florida with the top attraction being spending more time with Dru and Crescent!! THANK YOU!!!!
We have rented a few of their boats now. The one with the power pole is so easy to dock in the inlet. The other one we rented cut through the water very smooth. Every time we’ve had such an amazing time and great captains to meet us at the dock. We’ve rented boats from other companies and I can say with confidence that after the first time we rented with Cresent, we knew we’d never use anyone else again. This company is amazing!
What a great day on the water! Dru and Kelly were great to work with– friendly, flexible and professional. The boat was clean, well stocked and maintained. We saw several pods of dolphins swim right up to the boat, as promised– amazing! Supporting a family-owned business is very important to us, so kudos to them for helping build a business to be proud of! We’ll definitely rent from them again!
My family was here recently and we decided to rent a pontoon boat for a day on the water and the sand bars of Matanzas Inlet. I first spoke to Kelly who was so helpful in selecting the boat best for our crowd. The best part was that we could pick the boat up at Hershell King Park which is very close to where I live. Our only concern was the weather which turned out looking nasty for the day we selected. Drew worked with us to get on the water the day with the best forecast. The boat was clean and in excellent condition. We had a great day and I will definitely use this rental service again. My son’s comment was they were awesome to work with. Thank you Crescent Watersports.
Wow what a great experience! Boat was clean and in great working order. Our family of 5 had so much fun fishing, cruising and beaching on the Matanzas! We got to catch several fish and enjoyed watching dolphins play several times throughout the day. They met us at a boat dock best for us and we’re timely and very nice and helpful. I would highly recommend this company for your boating rental!
