My family and I rented one of these death traps while on vacation in Panama City FL. They left us stranded for HOURS upon HOURS because the rundown boat would not work. On top of that they charged us for the rental even though they had to tow us back to the dock. We cooked under the blazing sun for hours and NEVER got to use the boat at all. A whole day of our vacation gone because of these con artist.Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

Great time! Checked out she'll island then went down by the air force base. Water was pretty. Comfy boat, seats were nice, the sunshade was clutch and the radio had great sound! Guys running the dock were very friendly, helpful and professional. I'll Definitely recommend this to anyone!Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

The man that checked us in was very nice and knowledgeable. We were on our way in about 5 minutes. Cruising Emerald Bay was relaxing and beautiful. The boat was in good condition and we felt safe to go out in it. Our thoughts about Shell Island fell short of expectations. We stopped at three different areas to snorkel and find some shells or sand dollars. No sand dollars and all of the better looking shells were covered with algae and inhabited by crabs. As far as the rental, I rate this a 5. Emerald bay is a 5. Shell Island is at best a 2. The price was the cheapest that we found in the area.Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

We had a great time on Shell Island and the pontoon rental was a breeze. The owner took care of us right away and gave us instructions and tips on using the pontoon. We would definitely rent from them again!Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

First the rental process was flawless. Would use tripshock again!! If your renting a pontoon make sure of the water conditions in the shipping channel. For about 7 minutes I wasn't sure if we would make it home. Other than that boat/equipment was nice and fully functional.Verified TripShock! Traveler Review
