Grand Day in the Bay
Thanks for a great relaxing day. We went to Shell Island and gathered shells, grilled fresh shrimp, and just relaxed. The pontoon was very nice and easy to pilot. Eddie was very polite, helpful, and informative. Rates are very reasonable. We rented for a half day. Next time (and we will be back) we will go the whole day.Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

Some really great memories!
If you do anything while your in the area rent a boat. I have never ran a boat before but it was very easy with the helpful staff. My family loved this the most out of our trip! It was so much better than a guided tour. We caught star fish, hermit crabs and sand dollars. Sea shell island was an amazing beach, the kids kept asking to go back all the other days we were there. Highly recommended!!!!Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

Best day of vacation!!!
Renting the pontoon for a day was the best thing we did! Shell Island was very nice. Eddie was fantastic!! He raises the bar on customer service! The boat was clean and easy to drive. Do yourself a favor and rent for the day - half a day just won't be enough. This will be an annual addition to our trip. Thanks for everything!Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

Fun in the Sun!
We had a wonderful time on the pontoon boat last week! It was a perfect day and the entire process was so smooth. The boat was very clean and there was so much to see when we took it out. Wonderful experience all around! Will definitely be doing it next year when back in town!Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

We loved our day on the water. Sorry I don't remember name of staff who showed us the in's and out's of boat. He was very helpful and friendly. It was a much better experience than the one we had last year with another company that will remain nameless but is right next door to aquatic adventures. I rated it a four because the radio on the boat did not work and there was a lot of sand on floor but otherwise great! Will rent there again. We are returning to the area in May and I attempted to book early but not taking reservations that far in advance.Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

My family recently rented this pontoon for the day and I have to say it was one if the best highlights of our trip. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our day started off going to Shell Island. We took our dog with us and she had so much fun running up and down the island and also go swimming. Then it was off to cruising the bay and some fishing as well. We will definitely rent a pontoon again from here next time we are on vacation.Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

Panama City August 2013
I recently took my wife and her family on a half day trip. When the trip ended we were sorry that we hadn't booked it for the entire day. We had a great time snorkeling and hanging on the beach. We planned on returning next summer but are seriously considering returning again this year. Tripshock runs a first class operation. Their boats are well kept and the staff is very friendly and helpful. I will recommend them to anyone visiting Panama City. Thanks, Henry New Orleans, La.Verified TripShock! Traveler Review
