    Good times!

    Rental and prep was quick and painless. Staff was easy to work with and younger dock hands were great. I would highly recommend getting there more than the suggested 20 minutes early and use the map they provide of the bay to get a solid game-plan together - as going anywhere of significant interest is going to take some time on the water and will require avoiding a lot of stretches of water you shouldn't go through (and a lot of no-wake zones) -- none of that is OB Watersports/Tacky Jacks fault, though. Ask them for recommendations based on what you're wanting to do: swim, slide, fish, crab, hermit crab, etc.

    Great experience! We enjoyed our time. They even jumped in the water to save a cell phone that fell in the water! The only thing that would make it better would be a color map on the boat with us.

    Four Hour Pontoon Boat Rental

    The transaction went very well. However, you need to arrive at the dock about 30 minutes before your departure time because the parking situation may be very crowded and there is a boatload of paperwork to read, sign & initial. We didn't see any signs posted saying "OB Watersports" Everything at this location is TACKY JACK'S. We had to ask. It is all right there together, but still, no signs. The boat was nice. The fuel gauge on the boat we had is dead. We rented for 4 hours. It used about 4 gallons of gas. Overall, it was a very good experience.
