    Day on water.

    Boat was an older boat and seemed very underpowered for the size. Also the radio did not work and the top was torn in 2 spots. Staff was extremely polite during the check in procedure. For the price can't complain much.

    Thanks David for taking the time to review us. Yes some of our boats are older model pontoons but we adjust our price for that and as of today, we have began replacing all of our boats with new Bimini tops and radio for the 2018 season. Hopefully, you’ll give us another shot next time around. Y’all were a pleasure to chat with. Take care

    Great Time

    Yes the boats are old and a little rough but I didn't expect a brand new boat at a rental company that gives you the best deal in the beach at $200.00 for 8 hours on the water. Everything worked as it should and it served its purpose which was to spend the day on the ocean with the family, going to shell island, seeing a large school of dolphins and snorkeling. The check in and check out was super easy. Buy the insurance because there are a lot of shallow areas out there and unless you are a very experienced boater they are hard to miss. We really enjoyed the day

    FUN DAY!

    Super easy to book, locate, park, and enjoy! We were concerned that it would take a while to check in/load up but it was really quick & easy! We had a fabulous day boating. We saw shells, fish, hermit crabs, a sea urchin, and beautiful gulf waters! We even were lucky enough to encounter a dolphin on way back in! It was a fabulous day that was well worth the money spent!

    Hi Tim. Unfortunately you caught us at the end our busy season and he boats do get a bit banged up. Since then, we have supplied all boats with brand new ladders made of a sturdier metal in hopes they will handle the season better. We try and fix our boat’s issues at the end of each season and/ or even replace boats When necessary. Thanks for giving us a shot and for taking the time to review us. Feel free to contact me at 850-819-4610 so i can make it right. Thanks again
