    Horrible

    The person at the counter wasn’t very nice. We got on the boat and as soon as we left no wake zone the boat started putting. We called the dock at 12:08 to let the company know and we were disconnected. We were broken down in the bay for one and half hours. The deckhand couldn’t find us. We returned to the dock and the guy was so rude. He would only do a partial refund. He was RUDE

    PONTOON RENTAL

    Would NOT recommend this company! Staff are absolutely terrible! Do not help you load or unload boat. When we arrived back to the dock, we were tied up 6-8 feet from the dock and staff walked away!! We had two small children that almost fell between the dock and the boat when trying to get off. DO NOT RECOMMEND TO ANYONE! Not to mention we get out to crab island and radio doesnt even work
