    Terrible Experience!!

    I made my reservation on June 16th for our July 21st 8 hour pontoon rental. There were 10 people in our group, 4 being children. When we got to the rental booth to check-in I was told someone would be up to talk to me in a minute. We waited, when someone finally came to talk to me they said they were having to get a boat from another location. I had no problem with that and we waited. After some time they came back to me and told me they were unable to get a boat for me that morning but I could come back for a boat in the afternoon, he said he would discount $100. We had paid $60 to park our 3 vehicles and carted beach bags, ice chests, life jackets, and plenty more down to where the boat should have been, now they are asking me to take it all back and come back later. After telling... read more

    Jaqueline, ...

    Jaqueline, We are very sorry your family did not get to go out on their pontoon. Several of our boats were brought back in the evening before with maintenance issues from misuse by customers which is why we did not have a boat for your family at your scheduled time. We tried to bring an additional boat to the dock but had to send it out to rescue a family that had went farther in the bay than we allow and they had gotten lost. We recognize that we made a mistake by not communicating all of this too you properly. Our booth attendant should have informed you and tried to reschedule you to a time that worked better for you but she was overwhelmed. This is definitely not an excuse for our failure to provide you with excellant customer service. These type of situations are very rare for us and we assume full responsibility. We had Tripshock refund you in full as soon as you asked. You have every right to be disappointed because we did meet your customer service expectations. As far as the boats not looking the same as advertised, we are slightly confused. The boats pictured on Tripshock are the same ones we have here at the docks. Some models are older and some are new, but none of them are in less than satisfactory condition. If there is anything we can do for you in the future to try and earn your business back, please let us know. We are a local company that has strong service values so we take these situations very serious. Thank you, La Dolce Vita Team

    Good value and service.

    We dealt with Jason at the marina and he was very informative, prompt and helpful. We rented the pontoon boat for 4 hours and cruised out into the bay. The only reason this isn't a 5 star review is the boat had a few minor flaws that could be better, but definitely nothing that would stop us from returning again. One of the speakers were busted and the throttle seemed very loose and unresponsive compared to any other boat I've ever been on. Seemed like it could use some definite attention, but like I said those 2 things weren't anything that hindered us having fun or made the boat not worth the money for the rental. I'd definitely recommend this place for your boat rental and we will most likely do it again if we venture back down to Destin.

    Very easy to deal with

    For novice boat operators, it was important that they do a good job explaining the boat and map of the area. They did and we made it without an issue. Boat was clean and operated perfectly.

    The people were frindly and helpful. A good experience. We did have a little trouble locating the actual place to get the boat. I think this was due to a lack of signs at the rental place. But it was mostly good and we had a great time.

    The best thing we did during our vacation!!

    My family vacation was in the last week of summer break and I never thought that would have such a great turnout! We, a family of 3, rented a pontoon boat for only $150 here on tripshock when their booth at the dock still had the price of $250 for 4 hr rental. Riding around the bay, we had so much fun swimming and snorkeling. Crab island was a big hit! We felt like we were in a beautifully set aquarium watching hermit crabs and a few different kinds of little fish swim near the shore. The boat was clean and drove well. I highly recommend this deal!

    The service that Tripshock gave was great but the rental shop sucked. After having to transfer all our belongings onto 2 boats because of equipment failures, the over all trip was great and kids had a blast on the jet ski's.
