Reviews of 8 Hour Pontoon Boat Rental from Fort Walton Beach (12 Passengers Max)

Pontoon rental
The check in process went fine. The drawback is they rent space from the marina so there’s no parking on site. You can unload and load in the lot but have to park across Rt 98. The pontoon itself was in rough condition. However the motor was new, which is important, and the Bluetooth worked great. The day we were there it appeared only two ppl were working so perhaps a little hectic but they handled it well. We were given basic boating instructions, where everything was located on the boat, and important tips on where No Wake Zones were. Overall it was a pleasurable experience.

Janky boats and bad attitudes
We showed up and the boat had warped seats, front door falling off and the crew was quite rude. We did not even leave the dock with the boat. Plenty of other rental spots avoid funday at all costs.

Great Experience
Gabriel was fantastic. Helped load and unload the boat. Only thing preventing 5 stars is you have to park across the street!

Great start in Destin
We had a great day. Spent a couple hours at Crab Island. We cruised the bay and saw lots of dolphins including a pod of five and a momma and her baby. We went to a little sandy island and found hermit crabs and other fish. Great way to start our vacation

Rude! Don't rent from Funday Watersports!!
AWEFULL SERVICE! When we pulled up, I asked if the 2 men sitting there could help me with a pontoon rental. They looked at the guy in the next booth and said to him that I was probably a customer of his. That guy said, no all his boats have already been claimed. So they turned to me and asked for my name and surely enough I was at the right place. Then they told us we had to park our car across the street in the government parking lot. I told them the ad said there was on-site parking. They told me to look around at the million dollar boats, which was the reason cars had to be parked off site. They acted as though I didn't know the value of the boats. Once our car was parked, they told us to get on the boat. There was no help offered to get the kids or bags onto the boat. Then one of the two guys who got on the boat with us to go over boat guidelines asked if we had any experience driving boats which we told him yes, we've owned one for many years. He continue to ask, but really, how much experience do you actually have driving one? We told him we've been driving boats, including pontoons for 15 years. He then moved the boat into the open area as though we couldn't have done it ourselves. He went over how to operate the boat and rules multiple times. Then he told us multiple times that we had to be back before 5, actually 4:30 to be safe. He also told us to call him on our way back to give him a heads up we were on our way. In the 15 years we've been to Crab Island and rented from other companies, we've never been treated this way; never been talked to as though were idiots! We are a group of 40-65 year olds and 2 kids so it's not like we're a bunch of irresponsible teenagers. On our way back, we called him to let him know. I thought he wanted a heads up so he could come out and drive the boat in or help us off. Nope! We waited out where he left us in the morning for 5 minutes and then decided to park it ourselves. He was nowhere in sight! Then the guy from the company next door ran over and help tie up the boat. Once we were parked and helped ourselves off, the guy shows up making small talk for a tip of course. My husband really wanted to tip him to avoid the awkwardness but I was against it as he was very demeaning and spoke down to us as though we didn't know what we were doing and only came by once we were done. He didn't help us on or off, but spent extra time telling us how to operate the boat and how we had to be back at exactly 5 or there would be an extra charge, both of which we already knew. There are so many good rental companies in this area. If you are looking for friendly service- Don't rent from Funday Watersports located at Marker 21 Marina: 36 Miracle Strip Parkway Fort Walton Beach, Florida 32548.

Funday watersports was horrible… the seat for the driver was broken number one. The latter was rigged up and the boat was full of sharp barnacles ( i guess thats what u call them) that left our feet cut up as we teied to climb the lraggedy ladder to get back on boat. Needless to say, we were pissed and in pain and cut our 8 hour trip to about 4 1/2. I think I deserve a full refund when he would only give me back 150 and I had to argue with him for that.. never again will I use him

Nice guy but sketchy boat & no help
Most of the other places we have rented pontoons from have a crew of people to help load and unload the boat. This place had one guy. And we've never rented a boat with holes in the sides and rips in the seats or a damaged ladder, like this boat had. Not all of the radio speakers were working. The rental info said a cooler of ice would be provided but we did not get that. The parking was across the street. I thought we were renting again from the last place we rented from but it was not.

Did the Job
Affordable,kind of hectic figuring out which boat and who was gonna help us as there were several companies in one location, but once we got on; it was clean, full tank, radio, cooler and they helped get us loaded and pointed in the right direction. We called a few mins in advance and they were waiting fot us at the dock when we returned. Overall great experience.

Beware of Pontoon Rental
We booked an 8 hour day on a 12 person pontoon boat. Our experience started off with an employee yelling at us for the way we parked in the parking lot and we needed to move our vehicles in the lines that were only visible to her, then she came out and started painting lines. There were also rusted exposed nails in boards all over the parking lot. Then we were the first people there to board our boat and we got a rusty, 1980's looking boat that had tears in all the cushions, the play pen was smaller than expected, the boat was only rated for 11 people not 12 like was mentioned in agreement, the boat was way underpowered, motor struggled to push boat and boat never got on plane. The pontoons were riding in the water not above water and there were rusted holes that had been patched on he pontoons and they were probably taking on water which is why they were werent riding correctly. The back side rail wasnt attached the boat and one of my children almost fell out the boat. The steps/ladder to get back into the boat from the water were not safe or secure either. I do not recommend this company to rent a boat from and I will not use this company in the future. I am positive this boat would not have passed a coast guard compliance test. we cut our trip short from 8 hours to 3.5 hours because we felt so unsafe on it. It would have been sooner had it not taken forever to ride back from crab island, which is where we had planned to spend the day.
