Robbie's rents boats, fishing equipment and snorkle gear. You can buy bait and beverages, too. Boyphoenix and I did all of the above and off we went. Our boat was a 17 footer, I think, and very utilitarian. Not much space to stow our stuff or for sitting, but it got us around.
Robbie's also offers a Feed the Tarpon activity, whereby you can buy a bucket of smelts or somesuch ($1) and feed the tarpon which swarm around the docks like seagulls in an urban landfill. I thought the fish would bite my hand off!
While I do recommend renting a boat during your visit to the Keys, I would suggest looking elsewhere to rent. The boat we had was difficult for me to anchor myself to, making me feel as if I were on a fast-moving raft. It was also hard to get back in once I dove into the ocean. Maybe it was just the boat we got and they do have others which are more user friendly.
