First time to crab island
Easy quick and to the point process of renting the pontoon. Let us leave 30 minutes early. Had the most amazing FIRST time at crab island. Want to make this a yearly adventure. Can’t wait to go back.

Excellent service and the deck hands were on point helping with our coolers and bags.
Our extended family had an awesome time on the pontoon and traveling to the various sand bars and Crab Island! It was a great time!

Pontoon rental
Everything went smooth. Check in was easy. People helping were great. Only negative was that the boat was really old. Radio didn’t work and the steering was a little dicey. Overall good time. Saw that they had newer boats when we got back. They must have given us the older one since our rental was in the afternoon.

Best day ever!
We visited crab island 2 days in one week. Scheduling the tour was quick and easy. Driving the pontoon was so much fun! We had an absolutely amazing time! We plan to come back to Destin at least once a year and make this a part of our vacation.

Fun experience
Beautiful boat with very nice speakers and we enjoyed our time on the boat. Guy that showed us to our boat and how to use everything was very nice and funny. My only complaint would be that the young lady that checked us in was very rude and short with us. The older lady when we checked back in was very nice!

Smooth rental and private parking
I was able to book last minute. The pontoon was nice and very clean. The instructions were clear and we had a great time. Private parking lot was super helpful as we brought a lot of stuff! Would definitely recommend.

Faulty boat
Was pouring down rain when we arrived and they still didn't extend our time. Had to bring the Pontoon boat back before we even left the harbor because it would not steer the motor properly. Instead, got on another boat that our relatives had reserved. They still charged us the entire amount

Worst customer service and their boats need to be serviced
The bust was not ready at our scheduled time. There were no life jackets available that would fit the young kids on the boat. We specifically called ahead to make sure they would face them. The boat broke down before we even made it to the bridge yo get to crab island. We own a boat and use it weekly but we’re spoken to like trash by the “deck hand”. All I kept hearing was you better tip my guys good when you come back, you better take good care of them? What are we tipping them for? The boat was filthy. The boat wasn’t ready, it broke down so 4 hour rental is really like 2.5 hours.

Crab island with kids!
We all had so much fun! The pontoon rental was great, no major problems. Next time we’ll be sure to bring a rope to keep our floats near the boat. Will definitely rent a pontoon and go to crab island again!

Great Boating!
Excellent day trip! The check in process was simple and quick. The front end crew to the dock crew were great to get us out on the water quickly. The boat was clean and fueled up. For a family, the location was easy to get to, the crew was clean cut and polite and the experience was seamless. Highly recommend the rental company and will return!
