    Pontoon rental

    I rented the pontoon not knowing there aren’t any rope to save lives or float ring. Radios don’t work so it’s a silent and boring trip. Doors fly open while riding and valuable items may slide out into the ocean.

    Thanks for booking with us and letting us know. We have informed the vendor of your feedback just in case you didn't address it with them on site. The salty air in our area does create a constant battle for our vendors as it does cause corrosion to the radios on many of the vessels, so I'm sorry yours didn't work. As far as safety goes, pontoons are actually very safe as they do not go very fast and they are not permitted in the gulf. If there are any issues, it's typically because the driver and/or passengers are being reckless. You are always welcome to bring your own life jackets, flotation devices, etc. We always suggest that you don't keep your personal items close to the entry and that they are also secured as even high winds can cause items to fly out. I hope you were still able to...
