Great experience!

We rented a pontoon boat for the day to go to crab island. We got there first thing in the morning and had excellent customer service! My only complaint would be that we were not told that parking would be $20 or you can go back out on the busy road and park acrossed the street for $10 which isn’t a easy or quick task.

Boat was great and the attendants were very nice. It was very busy and they were running a bit behind getting us out. We still had a great time and made some great memories with our family and friends.

I was sent an email with directions to boat, we pay $20 to park and I get a text saying the rental is now at another location. We had to walk over a mile with coolers etc. The rental company told us tripshock over booked the original location. The boat rental was fun, but the boat was pretty beat up, but thats a typical rental. I will call the rental company direct next time and skip 3rd party!!!

Best value of our trip. Our only regret is we did it on our last day. Next time we will book the boat on a few separate days. Well worth it

Pontoon Boat Rental la vida dolce

We have gone to Destin for at least the last 10 years and rent a pontoon boat every year! This was the first time we rented from this place. All other places we rented from were great! The boats here were rusted and seats torn. The staff were rude and horrible. All young kids that claimed we would have to call the owner because he wasn’t onsite. On the website it stated if there was inclement weather a portion of our fee would be refunded. Bad weather came and we had to go back to the dock. We paid for 8 hours and were only out 3 and they said we couldn’t go back out once we came in. They had me sign paperwork that they said I waived the right for money back! Never ever rent from this establishment. Too many other nice pontoon boat rental places in Destin to even bother going to this one!
Not as advertised

I'm giving this boat company a 3 because they atleast ran and didn't leave us stranded like previous years! These boats were advertised as brand new 2017 Bentleys and this was not the case. The boats had mildew on the seats, the radios did not work, they were damaged and wrecked at the front! Not at all as advertised!!

The boat was wet and the seats were not wiped down. I understand that it's a boat but at least dry the sets for me, I am a boat owner. The seat cushions had mold all over them that was embedded in the vinyl seats. I should've gotten a discounted rate since the other boats that were docked next to mine waiting for customers did not! When you pay $300 for four hours you expect a clean boat, kinda like a rental car! The parking! As stated in a previous review it's $20 not $10 so just be aware! I think the parking attendant is pocketing the other $10 since it's CASH ONLY! And I had another service charge of $17 that tripshock didn't charge me for on the website & had to pay before we got our rental.
